Late last Summer, I photographed Katie and Aaron’s Batsto Village Engagement Session. Katie and Aaron met online playing World of Warcraft. At the time, she was living in Maryland and Aaron lived here in New Jersey. They played together online almost every day and one day he invited her to come to New Jersey to meet for drinks & dinner. Their first date was dinner at Dolsot House Korean BBQ in Cherry Hill where he also introduced her to craft beers! Aaron seemed too good to be true, so Katie was very scared at first, but she knew very early on that he was the one. She even texted her friend 1 month into dating “I’m so going to marry this guy.”!
Engaged on 07/21/2018, the proposal from Katie: “Aaron and I both knew we wanted to get married. We started talking more and more about rings & timelines for getting engaged. I definitely knew it was coming & thought that if my ring was ready – he was definitely going to propose at Star Wars: A New Hope with the Philadelphia Orchestra. We went out Friday night to see Star Wars with the Philadelphia Orchestra and I wore a dress (instead of my usual Star Wars shirts) and I was convinced this was it. When it didn’t happen, I was a little bummed but thought it MUST have been because my ring wasn’t ready yet. That same weekend, we went out to dinner at The Chop House for our anniversary. I was already convinced the ring wasn’t ready – so I was ready to relax, enjoy our anniversary dinner, and have fun. The waiter offered to take a picture since we were celebrating but Aaron put it off until the end of the night. After dinner & dessert, Aaron made sure we were standing for our picture & as I tried to pull him closer for the picture, he pulled away, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! 🙂 I asked him if the waiter was in on it but he said no!”
When these two aren’t planning their elegant barn wedding at The Barn at Silverstone in Lancaster, PA, they still enjoy playing World of Warcraft together. They also like to spend time with family, friends, and their puppy, Finneas Rainbow! They also love Indian Food & WaWa runs. Once married, they are excited to experience life together & have a family, they hope to have 3 kids and Katie’s mom always told her that with love as the foundation, a couple can get through anything. She didn’t really understand that until she met Aaron.
Any advice for future bride’s planning?
Just remember it’s you and your future husband’s wedding & no one else’s opinion should matter! Have fun & have your dream wedding!
And finally, what are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?
#1. Marrying my perfect little Aaron. #2. Aaron & my Dad’s reaction to my dress. 🙂
