We met online in the summer of 2014
We had our first date on a summer night in Philadelphia and it has been an amazing journey since that night.
We are both very passionate about helping people and both have careers in the healthcare field. While we do not have children yet we are both pet lovers and have four cats and a dog. Our home is full of love and animals that keep us busy.
Kiersten was the first one to propose and had been planning for months. Kiersten proposed on December 23rd 2016 at Penn's Landing Ice Rink in Philadelphia, where we spent our first date.
She planned the entire night to include ice skating, a proposal, then a surprise dinner with all of our family and friends.
It was the most magical night of our lives.
Almost 7 months later Amanda proposed to Kiersten in Baltimore, Maryland. Amanda wanted to propose for months but wanted to wait until the right moment.
It was a perfect summer day at the inner harbor in Baltimore and Amanda had a planned dinner at Kiersten's favorite restaurant.
"Before dinner we walked along the water and sat down at a bench where I gave Kiersten a hand written letter telling her how much I love her and sealed it with popping the question. She immediately smiled and said yes," recalls Amanda.
"Our proposals represent the love and care we share for each other and we would not have wanted them any other way.
