About 4 years ago only two weeks apart from each other Katie and Michael both moved to New York City to follow job offers in the city. For three years though they never knew each other, which is easy to understand in a city so large. I can only imagine how many times they passed each other on the busy streets without even seeing each other. They even attended churches that were just across the street from each other, without ever seeing each other. When friends separately convinced them to try online dating they both reluctantly agreed. Katie was skeptical and only signed up for one month, but Michael thought he would take what seemed like the more logical option and pay for the three month membership which was cheaper per month. Well, he didn’t end up needing the three month membership because the first person that he connected with was Katie.
Once they met, they both just knew…and if you are ever around them you would know too. It is so easy to see how much they love each other. In fact, when they first started dating their friends used to count how many times on a single night they would kiss each other. Michael is from Egypt, and works in finance, and Katie is a Texas girl who moved to the city to work in fashion, their worlds seemed totally separate, but thankfully their paths crossed.
We met up with Katie and Michael in Central Park this past week for their engagement session. We had so much fun with the two of them. After their session they took us to the cutest bakery, and we enjoyed the yummiest treats and chatted about their wedding. We are sooo excited for their wedding this October.
