The Couple





Our Story

Maura and Ben met at a holiday party in the winter of 2010. A chance encounter facilitated by a close mutual friend quickly sparked a cross country romance. Our adventure has traversed North America; together we’ve seen countries north and south, and we’ve made homes on both coasts. It was somewhere in the middle that our connection grew into the enduring love and commitment that we look forward to celebrating this summer. On our third summer cross country road trip together, and after logging over 10,000 miles, Ben proposed to Maura by the banks of the Merced River in Yosemite National Park, and Maura said yes.
