Kara and Joseph

How We Met: Joe and I met within the first couple of weeks of our freshman year at Virginia Tech. I was born and raised a Jersey girl, while he grew up with best southern charm. Joe is my first and only boyfriend and we dated for a little over 6 years before he popped the question this past winter.

how they asked: I was told that I was going home for my mom’s Teacher of The Year party and little did I know, it was my own engagement party. After Joe proposed on the beach, we went back to my parent’s house where I still thought my mom’s party would be taking place – I know, you think it would have clicked in my head that there is no party. To my complete surprise, our closest friends and family were there to celebrate our best day yet. Joe and I will be married this August 15th and we could not be more excited!
