From The Bride:
Logan and I met through a mutual friend. We had known each other for a few years but didn’t start dating until after college. We were out at a bar and at the time working in similar jobs (which neither of us liked). So we bonded while talking over that and before we knew it we were dating! We dated for 5 ½ years before getting married and it’s been quite the adventure that just keeps getting better and better.
Logan proposed on an early Sunday
morning at my family’s little camp just steps away from the water on Martha’s Vineyard. This little home has been in my family since the 1960’s and the amount of memories I have here with my family could fill up a whole shelf of books. Logan woke me up just as the sun was rising and asked if I wanted to go for a walk on the beach and everything clicked. I almost jumped out of bed with excitement. Since I am a photographer, I always want to wake up to watch (and photograph) the sunrise and it’s something we do together often but had never done at the Vineyard before. We went out on the beach and the wind was breezy but not windy. Logan and I sat down next to each other and he went really quiet. After he started talking for a few minutes Logan stood up in front of me and got down on one knee. I have the most amazing image of Logan in front of me and nothing but the quiet, blue ocean behind him. He asked if I would marry him, I started crying and he pulled out the most gorgeous ring. I said yes and we hugged, not ever wanting to let go. After Logan proposed and we cried, hugged and ogled over my ring Logan said he had one more surprise. He ran inside and came back with an incredible Anthropologie
dress. A dress I loved so much I went to Anthro at least 5 times that summer just to try it on. Logan went to all the stores in the city and was able to track down the last dress in Connecticut. We went inside and called our families whom were all standing by waiting for the call. After all the calls and texts were made, I put on my new dress and we went down to the channel to go fishing with our friends Ashley and Mike. Cause why not? We came back (empty handed unfortunately) and were greeted by my parents and brother (who lives in California but just happened to be visiting) and we had Black Dog pastries and mimosas. Logan really is the sweetest and most thoughtful guy out there. He’s always listening and planning and this morning was no exception. It was the best day of our lives until we got married on Martha’s Vineyard and had an even more perfect day then!
