We met in Spring 2017 in Washington, DC. Our first date was at The Front Page in DuPont, which has since closed, but their $2 coronas will always have a special place in our heart. After Laura graduated from Georgetown, Ted's career took him to NYC, and we embarked on a year of long distance via Amtrak (and bus rides for frugal Ted). Laura moved up to New York in 2019, but soon after that we left the city due to Covid-19, and spent a lot of time with family and friends in Maine, Maryland, Texas, DC, and in between! We have spent another couple of years in NYC since then, and some highlights include becoming dog parents to our adorable goldendoodle Baxter, Laura learning how to sail on the Hudson, Ted working 110 hour weeks, and both of us enjoying everything the city has to offer with our amazing friends. In September 2022, Ted surprised Laura at the airport with a trip to Iceland - she thought they were headed to see family in Maryland - and he proposed there on a beautiful waterfall hike. As of August 2023, we moved back down to the DC area, where we hope to settle long-term. We are so grateful for the support of our family and friends throughout our relationship, and look forward to celebrating our marriage with all of you on August 10, 2024!
