How They Met

Dana and Benjamin’s love story began when they were introduced by a mutual friend.

How Benjamin Knew He Had Found the One

When they first met, Dana approached Benjamin and asked him to donate to her charity marathon run for pediatric cancer. It was at that moment that Benjamin realized what a caring and passionate individual Dana was and in addition to a donation, Dana also “got his heart.”

Darling Details

“Our family and friends are what made our wedding so perfect” explained Dana and Benjamin. The days leading up to their wedding included a horrific snowstorm which resulted in delayed, diverted, and canceled flights. “We were worried we were going to lose half of our guests! It made us extra thankful that almost everyone made it!”

Tip for Engaged Couples

“The best advice is not to sweat the small stuff. Also, take your pictures before the ceremony so that you can spend more time with your guests.”
