Marianne and Kristopher met at Cardinal Dougherty High School here in Philadelphia, PA. They dated briefly but decided that they were better off as friends. Kris and Marianne kept in contact after graduation; though there was definitely still chemistry between them, it remained just a friendly flirtation. In 2005, however, their casual connection became something more. Kris and Marianne quickly became inseparable in the years that followed and on the eve of her birthday in 2010, he proposed. Fast forward to today, they are anxiously and contentedly awaiting their June 2012 nuptials.
Marianne works as the financial coordinator for the transplant center of a local hospital. She is currently a student at Gwynedd-Mercy College pursuing a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Healthcare. Kristopher also works at a local hospital in Logistics and Supply Chain. He plans to return to his studies in the fall in pursuit of a certification in radiologic technology.
For the first time ever in our blogging history, the clients (Marianne) actually wrote the entire story about the two of them. It was so easy, all we had to do really was copy and paste and we did not complain one bit. For their engagement session they decided that they wanted to spend a couple of hours at the Adventure Aquarium in New Jersey. Enjoy a few of our fav’s!
We just had to spotlight Kris’ appreciation for fine footwear!
We just love how Marianne & Kris are completely comfortable with one another and not ashamed to show their love, and get a little silly at times.
See what we mean!
Marianne’s comment about this big guy was that she bets he taste good with some melted butter, we couldn’t agree more (Bernard at least.)
Neither one of them were afraid to pet the baby sharks or the sting rays….no thanks.
Something about the timing of this shot is just amazing to us…
Congrats on the upcoming wedding Marianne & Kris, we will be getting together again before we know it..
