Sean + Katelin {wedding} :: Auburn, Ala.

How did you two meet?

Katelin: "The first time we met was through mutual friends in Auburn at a friend's house in Ross Park. We had some classes together in the same building, and would constantly see each other on campus. We later studied abroad together in Innsbruck, Austria-- and that's where the sparks flew! 

How and when did Sean propose?

Katelin: "Sean proposed at the most unexpected time! Early one Saturday morning, Sean suggested that we take our pup-child, Lucy, on a walk along the Chattahoochee River. He was just gifted a river pass from his parents, so I didn't think anything of it. Our plan was to take Lucy on a walk, drop some stuff off at Sean's parents' house nearby, then go to Scotts Antique Market. So I threw on some workout clothes, didn't put makeup on, and tossed by hair on top of my head.

We got to the park and started walking on this secluded path along the river. As soon as we turned the corner, Sean grabbed my hand and just said, 'Katelin' with a huge grin on his face. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, and I said 'yes' before he could fully finish his question. I was totally caught off guard and beyond excited. We rushed back to the car, to head to his parents to tell them the news. Little did I know that Sean had planned out the whole weekend and had my parents drive up from Valdosta. BOTH of our parents were at the house to celebrate.

After celebrating with our parents, we headed to the Mandarin Oriental where Sean had planned more surprises. We had a special dinner nearby where everyone in the restaurant wrote a message on the menu for us, and were pampered and spoiled at the Mandarin. It was the most perfect weekend, and I wouldn't have changed a thing!


What are some things y'all like to do together?

Katelin: "We LOVE anything that involves hanging out with our pup Lucy, anything exciting and active, trying out new restaurants around Atlanta for date nights, and taking weekend trips!"

Sean-- what's one of the things you admire most about Katelin?

Sean: "Other than her wicked looks and brilliant mind, Katelin is the most thoughtful person I've met in my entire life. From a simple gift, to a little surprise here and there-- she makes everyday special that we're together. Along with our relationship, all of Katelin's family and friends would agree that her thoughtfulness is felt in every individual relationship she has with those close to her. I can't wait to be surprised and delighted the rest of my life with her."   

Katelin-- what's one of the things you admire most about Sean?

Katelin: "Sean's personality is one my favorite thing about him. He is always encouraging, optimistic and loving. Not just to me, but to our family, friends and his colleagues. His handsome smile and overall happiness is contagious and he makes me a better person on a daily basis."

What was each of yall's favorite part of the day?

Katelin: "May favorite part was dancing all night with all of our favorite friends and family!"

Sean: "My favorite part was seeing Katelin walk down the aisle."

What's next for you two?

Katelin: "Getting settled in our new house in Atlanta!"
