Tell us how you met!
My fiance, Ramil, and I met while we were both in our teaching credential program. Back then we were complete strangers but soon became really good friends (after being assigned to complete projects together!). Although we have very different backgrounds, we discovered that we shared many of the same interests and passions. Not only do we love working with children, we both really enjoy adventures in the great outdoors. We have gone from camping by lakes to kayak fishing, and from crabbing in the Pacific to backpacking the beautiful back country of Yosemite. We soon found ourselves very much in love and inseparable.

Tell us how you became engaged.
Two years later and now teachers, we escaped to Lake Tahoe to celebrate Ramil’s birthday with some dear friends. On the way back home from Lake Tahoe, Ramil decided that we weren’t quite done exploring and went on a little detour to Echo Lake. We hopped out of the car and found a trail that led us next to the lake. With the picturesque view of the sapphire-blue lake and the sun setting behind the rolling mountains, Ramil got on one knee and presented a dazzling ring while saying those four magical words… The rest is history and we cannot wait to begin our next adventure as husband and wife!

Tell us your love story!
“Brian and I met in college when we both volunteered for our university’s Big Brother Big Sister program. A boy that cute AND that sweet? I couldn’t pass him up! We dated casually at school but, ironically, it wasn’t until Brian graduated and accepted a job in San Francisco that we realized we wanted to be together exclusively. So we were in a long-distance relationship for two years with him in California and me in Philadelphia, and as hard as the distance was it enabled us to grow individually and took us on amazing adventures together from LA to Italy. After two years apart, Brian transferred back to Philadelphia, but after three years together there I had to take an opportunity to work in my hometown of Pittsburgh. We were disappointed to once again find ourselves in a long-distance relationship but, just like a few years earlier, the distance brought clarity to our relationship, and we realized we wanted to be together forever. So, one weekend in October, I made the trip to Philadelphia to visit Brian. He proposed that weekend on a beautiful fall day in a quaint little town outside of the city. It was such a perfect day in one of our favorite places, and I was so surprised and excited that I can’t remember if I ever even officially said the word “yes”. Family could not be more important to us as a couple, so to make the day even more perfect, Brian surprised me by having our parents (who traveled in from New York and Pittsburgh) join us for dinner later that night. That day was one of the most special days of my life, and Joey Kennedy perfectly captured the emotion and beauty of that day and time in our lives in these pictures. His work is so stunningly beautiful and I know I’ll look back on these photos and remember the magic of our engagement forever.”
