{Simply Engaged: Chloe & Brandon}

OH I can't wait for this wedding . . . coming up on Saturday!
Another one of my sweet couples . . .

Simply Engaged

Here's a glimpse into the adorable soon to be newlyweds:
{Chloe & Brandon}
. . . 

Wedding Date: April 11th 2015
Wedding Location: St. James Cathedral & Washington Athletic Club

{How did you two love birds meet}

"When I first moved to Seattle I was out with a group of my girlfriends when I bumped into some guys I went to college with in Montana.  That following week they invited me to go to a BBQ which happened to be at Brandon’s apartment with his roommate, Brady.  The apartment was filled with people from Montana or small towns who were genuinely nice people and fun to be around.  From there, my friends began to meet up with the Montana contingent on the weekends and it wasn’t long before I was a regular fixture at Brandon and Brady’s apartment as a friend.  We dated other people but became good friends and about 7 months after we met, 
finally figured out we liked each other.  
It took another 6 months or so before we were officially dating but it was perfect because we were friends first so know we like to do much of the same things together (except shopping!).  Last September we will have been together for 4 years!"

{How did he pop the big question?}

"There's a long story to this but the short story is Brandon went to my hometown for a Fall fishing trip.  I wasn't there with him but my brother, Grandma, and parents were in town.  They all went out on the river for the day and on the way home, 
he asked all of their permission!  

He returned back to Seattle and 
officially asked me to marry him :)"

{What is your fave date spot/activity?}

We like to go out for dinner in our neighborhood and just talk about our days and what's coming up in our lives.  
Going 3-par golfing (with loser buying dinner) is always a favorite as well!

{What is your fave part about the wedding planning process?}

I think my favorite part so far has been the realization we will have two families, who love us both, coming together to celebrate us.  
It's really touching to know we are taking such a big step and have so many people who want to be there every step of the way.  

{Advice for planning a wedding to other couples?}

"I think my advice would be to take your time :)  We will be engaged for about a year and a half and I'm happy we didn't have to rush to make decisions for the wedding.  There's enough going on in life so I'm happy we haven't had added stress!"

{If we could travel anywhere for our honeymoon we would . . . }

We would go to Bora Bora (or anywhere tropical) to relax, lay on the beach, and swim in 

the ocean.  Emphasis on relaxing!
