The Wedding Website of Connor Shine and Michael Purcell
Michael grew up near Clearwater, FL, but spent his whole life visiting his father's family on the North Shore of Long Island before moving to New York City for college and law school. After law school, Michael took a job at a Boston-based law firm, Ropes & Gray, to work in their Washington, DC office. Connor spent his life on the North Shore of Long Island before moving to Boston for college. Two weeks before Michael and Connor met in January 2020, Connor's parents closed on a house in Lakewood Ranch, FL -- 40-minutes from Michael's childhood home. Connor and Michael each moved to Washington, DC in the summer of 2019, and met soon after. Early dates were filled with realizations of the many places they shared and the ways their lives connected. Three years later, they've built a life together with their dog, Scooby, but one thing has never changed: being together feels like home.
August: This is Connor and Michael's first picture together, taken August 1 2020. This was the first time since meeting that the two could join their friends for a drink outside due to the pandemic.

Dating in Covid: Unable to go on dates typical of a new relationship, the two spent the early months of their relationship (and the pandemic) indoors, with date-night at home and a lot of Top Chef.
