Heather and Paul :: Engaged :: Blackstone River State Park, Lincoln, RI
Engagement Photoshoot Date: August 25, 2018
Tell us your story!
Paul and I were introduced by my sister Rebecca who was dating Paul's best friend Josh at the time. The first time we met was a "couples date" to Six Flags set up by and with, Rebecca and Josh, and another couple they were both friends with.
After meeting Heather requested to be friends with Paul on Facebook and wasted no time in asking him on a date the following week. That following Friday we had our first date at Cheesecake Factory for dinner and to saw "Gravity" in Imax 3D.
Paul had planned to propose on a hot air balloon ride, and had to shift to plan B, which was at sunrise at the summit of Mt. Washington several days later. Paul then decided plan B was too far away and proposed at Cathedral Ledge in North Conway, NH at sunset, on the same day as the planned balloon ride.
What do you love most about your partner?
I love how he’s secure with who he is and how he provides love, support, and encouragement to all of the important people in his life. The size of his heart and the impact of his positivity and his presence on other's happiness never cease to amaze me.
I love the way she smiles and looks at me because I can see how she truly cares for me.
Tell us a little about yourselves.
Heather is an in-home therapist and Paul is a building automation engineer/technician. She enjoys cross stitching.
Paul enjoys photography and has been the sole photographer at several family events, including Heather's sister's wedding.
We love to cycle together around Blackstone valley and enjoy spending time in New Hampshire camping, exploring, and ATV-ing with my family. We also love going to the movies, Target, and enjoying delicious food at some of our favorite restaurants.
If you could pick one word that describes you as a couple, what would it be and why?
Heather: Complementary. There are many things we have in common and there are many key differences including our opinions about politics, religion, and left vs. right brain thinking predominantly. I think this allows Paul and I to be able to have important discussions and really allow one another space to be who we are as individuals and also provide balance to one another.
Paul: Perfect. All of our similarities and differences complement each other perfectly.
