Vanessa and John
John and Vanessa met on a chilly fall afternoon on October 5th, 2008 at a mutual friends house. Upon meeting, the two immediately felt a strong attraction for one another and thus, blossomed into a forever standing relationship. John, a teacher; Vanessa, an Insurance Underwriter at the time, courted each other for the next two years, leading each other through amazing experiences and memorable adventures. It wasn't until the year 2010 when the two had entered in the conversation of marriage and the relationship took its next step. In the fall of 2010, John bought an engagement ring without Vanessa's knowledge, looking to surprise her in a way that uniquely demonstrated the type of relationship they had. He took her to his parents for the Christmas holiday, and then on to Lake Placid, NY for what she thought would be two days of skiing and shopping in the Olympic Village. On December 26th, the inseparable pair decided to try their luck at ice skating on the very ice Olympians had speed skated on in the 1980 Olympics. It was here where John dropped to his knee and asked Vanessa for her hand in Matrimony. It is with great excitement that on July 30th, 2011, John and Vanessa will become husband and wife, leading each other on a new set of memories and adventures in the many years ahead.
Cheers and I can't wait to be a part of your big day!
