When I first met Lisa and Justin last summer over a glass of wine, I instantly liked them. We ended up laughing for several hours, sharing stories and talking about their plans for their 2016 wedding. Justin has a contagious smile and Lisa is detail orientated and completely sweet natured. They have been together for years, lived in multiple states but meeting them anyone would guess that they had just met and were newly in love. The connection they share is evident in the way they talk, how they look and smile at each other, and I wondered how they have kept their connection so fresh over time.
In December we met again for their engagement session in German Village, and as we wandered through the park and Village, Lisa let me in on their secret. She said they follow the first date rule each and every day, which means that if you wouldn’t do something on a first date, you shouldn’t do in on any other day either. They live by the rule and when either forgets, the other gently nudges by asking “is this first date materials?” Thank you for letting me in on your secret and I’m so excited to be a part of your big day this October!
