From the Bride... Ben and I first met at Berry College in 2008 when we both attended school there for our undergraduate, but the sparks did not start to fly until Mountain Day (alumni weekend) in 2012. After Mountain Day, we began to casually talk and became closer friends. On Thanksgiving of that same year, his father (who is my mentor) invited me to Thanksgiving festivities at their house on Berry’s Campus. Ben states, “when I saw her again on Thanksgiving, I instantly gravitated towards her and knew I needed to get to know this girl." A few weeks later, he flew down from Baltimore, Maryland to take me to a Dave Matthews Concert, and we have been inseparable ever since. Our love of music, life, love and caramel apples have brought us together.
From Evie Perez Photography... Ben and Katie weren't officially engaged yet, but started planning a little bit of their wedding. They live in two different states, Ben in Maryland and Katie in Georgia. Because they live in two different states, Ben hadn't officially asked Katie to be his bride. Katie wanted to go ahead and schedule an engagement session since this was the only time they had and the only weekend the would be together. When I arrived at the engagement session, Ben told me that he was going to go ahead and ask Katie to be his lifelong partner. She had no idea this was going to happen! I was truly happy that they asked me to be a part of this special moment and was there to document a moment in time that they would remember forever!
