Katie & Brent, Married 4/2019

There are 10 miles of road between Arlington and Merrifield, Virginia where Brent and Katie each lived. It was 2013 and they had both invested in the idea that there were “plenty of fish” in the sea, and still neither had yet caught that special one. Suddenly, they found themselves chatting and discovering common threads as they went along. Each had attended James Madison University. Careers in Sales. Nuclear families. Older siblings. Long-standing friendships. They decided to meet in person on “neutral” ground - halfway between their two homes - at a bar inside Westover Market in Arlington, Virginia. Katie was in her work clothes and showed up a little late, Brent couldn’t even get Katie’s drink order correct. And still the conversation lingered until well past closing time. Four years and a move to Philadelphia later, Brent proposed to Katie on a very rainy day at her “happy place” – the shore in Southern New Jersey. While it didn’t go exactly as he had planned, she did nevertheless say “yes” on that Memorial Day weekend in 2017. Katie and Brent were married in front of their loving family and friends at The Lake House Inn in Perkasie, PA on Friday, April 26th, 2019.
