Carolyn + Jeremy: Engagement Session at UPenn
I met with Carolyn and Jeremy the other week at the University of Pennsylvania, where Carolyn went for undergrad, for their e-session. She had given tours during her tenure there so we got a great walk around the campus. Carolyn is from the Philly area though the couple now lives in Boston. They’ll be celebrating their wedding in April at St. Thomas Church of Villanova and Philadelphia’s Down Town Club.
We started by the Fisher Fine Arts Library to warm up from the blustery day. Who knew they had stairwells like this?
It was chilly, but really, who cares?
It’s a fantastic campus and I learned a great many things about these two: Jeremy’s brief stint as a model, the marathons and half marathons they do for kicks, Carolyn’s apparent love for trashy TV during serious life moments, Jeremy’s inability to finish cheesesteaks (for shame!)…
I believe the pickup line was “Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my head all day.” Always a winner.
So Jeremy proposed to a starving and “comfortably” dressed Carolyn. He came back from a business trip and presented her with a silver plated picture frame. He proceeded to tell her it could be used for a wedding picture and then popped the question. Meanwhile, Carolyn had NJ Housewives in the background while eating pizza, and had just come back from a rained out golf tournament. I love it! (She wiped her hands and said yes, by the way.)
They’re hilarious, beautiful, and so laid back.
Though we passed up a photo op at the button, we ended at New Deck Tavern to warm up again and get a few beers.
I can’t wait for the wedding next Spring. It’ll be a blast!
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
