How We Met
Katie and I met during our first semester of physical therapy school at Northeastern University. We were from different undergraduate schools and lived in unique areas of the country, but both chose to move to Boston to accomplish our doctorates. When I met Katie for the first time, I instantly felt a special connection. Our friendship sparked effortlessly and our love grew even stronger as we battled the struggles of a full-time doctorate program.
Katie and I are both grew up near the ocean and shared a love for the sea, which led us both to Falmouth where we decided to celebrate our marriage. One of my first experiences with Katie and her family was hiking The Knob and seeing the amazing view all around Quissett Harbor. In the background, we could see Woods Hole Golf Club; where our reception will be held.
Nobska Lighthouse and The Knob are both well known, beautiful locations around Falmouth and Woods Hole and truly symbolize the spirit of Cape Cod. We are both so very excited for the big day and could not have asked for a better photographer to capture each and every special moment.
How They Asked
Erik proposed to me in exceptional fashion. During our winter break between clinical rotations, we both took a short trip to California wine country. In my mind, this was the last time we would be able to travel until after taking our boards a year later. Little did I know, Erik had bigger plans. Our first stop was San Francisco where we explored the wharf, Alcatraz, and a cable car ride of course. On our way up to Sonoma the next morning we stopped at Muir Woods National Park for a nature walk. It was so peaceful and calm among the redwoods, the air so crisp. Erik lead me up a side path named “Hillside Trail” which overlooked the main path winding through the forest. A few minutes in as I admired my surroundings, he turned to me, knelt on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Enthusiastically I said “YES!” I couldn’t have asked for a better time or place, just the two of us in the place we both loved, outdoors among the trees. We continued up to Sonoma to celebrate with some of the best wine I’ve ever tasted.
