How They Met

“We met in March of 2013 on a cruise. It was the Carnival Pride traveling from Baltimore to the Bahamas. I was with my girlfriends on spring break and Eric was with his buddy Julian from college and Julian’s friends from home. (Julian married my best friend, Andrea, in August of this past year who he also met on the cruise!)
He is absolutely hilarious. He can make me laugh when I’m at my most grumpy. I love how truly myself I am around him even from day 1. He makes me feel like the most beautiful person on Earth.”

The Proposal

“We stayed in on New Year’s Eve 2016 since Eric had to work that day and early New Year’s day. I cooked all of our favorite snack foods and we drank champagne wearing matching dinosaur print onesies that we received as a gift from my parents for Christmas. After we ate, he came over to me and said, “Hey D, I got something for ya.” And proceeded to get down on one knee. I asked him if this was a joke and I will never live that down.”

Engagement Session Inspiration

“We have been living in Philly for a year and 8 months and wanted to have our photos taken in some of our favorite spots. This includes where we spend summer evenings playing Cornhole under the lit up Ben Franklin Bridge, drinking IPAs at the PHS pop up garden, and walking our 1-year-old puppy along the streets of graduate hospital.”

Wedding Planning

“Yes, we’ve started wedding planning! We knocked out most of the major vendors early on in our engagement and now it is coming down to details. My parents have been absolutely phenomenal and have made my dream wedding come to life. I am so looking forward to celebrating with all of our family and friends.”

Emerald Stone Photography

“She is WONDERFUL!!! We met Erica at a bridal showcase which was the first thing we did in terms of wedding planning and are so fortunate to have met her! She traveled all the way to Philly from 2 hours away for our engagement shoot. I can’t even tell you how many compliments we have gotten on the photos. Her style perfectly captured Eric and me as a couple and made the whole shoot so natural and smooth. I know our wedding photos are going to be just as beautiful.”
