June 17th was a defining day in the lives of Sean and Theodora, and it went off without a hitch—well, except for that big one we were all expecting.
Sean and Theodora are vibrant and successful people who have decided to come together in the bonds of everlasting love and their families couldn't be happier. Sean currently holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Theodora is pursuing hers in Biology. (brilliant babies anyone?)
Their story is an all-American one, and their lives became intertwined the moment they laid eyes on each other their move-in day at college.
Both bright-eyed and nervous Freshmen at the time, their love began with a deep appreciation and friendship as two young neighbors both exploring the ups and downs of student life. It wasn't until Senior year that Sean got up the nerve to take it to the next level, and Theodora, of course, was overjoyed.
Fast forward to Theodora giving a huge presentation in Princeton, NJ that meant the world to her. She labored over it for weeks and her nerves were at an all time high. Sean was there to listen and encourage her throughout the whole process (just as he always was in life).
What happened next was magic. A true companion and supportive partner, Sean took Theodora to an amazing dinner to celebrate her immediate success. They chatted and romanced for hours and Sean glowed within—his secret slowly smoldering in his pocket.
The second they got back to the room, he couldn't hold it in any longer. He dropped to one knee as he had envisioned for years, and barely heard his own words as Theodora exclaimed an excited "YES!!"
The next day Theodora was equally surprised with a spa day and an entire family there ready to party and celebrate their intended union. It was then that the couple knew they were truly some of the luckiest people on earth.
The wedding was a few weeks ago and it was one of the most joyful events we have ever photographed. Held at the famous Brownstone, in Patterson, NJ, everything was pure elegance, class, and lots of letting loose.
Most importantly, it was a union of the ages and we wish them nothing but happiness and success for years to come!
Congratulations Theodora and Sean!
