Katie and Erik

Katie and Erik's Engagement in Heirloom Market, Old Wethersfield, CT

How We Met

Erik and I met in 2010 when we were both in high school. I was dating someone else at the time, so the thought of Erik and I dating never crossed my mind. It wasn’t until a few years later when we had re-connected on the the social media platform Tinder! We instantly started talking from where we left off as friends and it was history from there!

How He Asked

Erik and I had plans to have lunch with both of our parents on a lovely Sunday afternoon. Unbeknownst to me Erik had other plans! That week I had gotten pretty sick and was not up for any outings, but Erik insisted on us going. Well now I am thankful we went! Where it happened: One of our favorite spots is Old Wethersfield, the Commestock Ferre. The owners rennovated the store and turned it into a wonderfully hip restaurant and market that Erik and I adore! So that being a very special spot for us he thought it would only be best to pop the question outside our favorite spot!

He was absolutely right! While distracting me in the market his family and mine were gathering in front of the market to capture the big moment. We started walking out of the market and I immediately saw his sister and was instantly confused. “Why is Megan here?” After I processed that, I realized what was going on and instantly had tears streaming down my face.

The shock was written all over my face and all I was able to say was “Oh my god” over and over again! Still in shock our families gathered around us and embraced us with the great news!
