Living in Virginia, Carol and Ted were yet another couple that I had not met until the day of their engagement pictures. I knew from the conversations with Carol what kind of couple they were…sweet, fun loving, great sense of humor and absolutely selfless which shows from their professions. Carol works at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children working on cold cases, and Ted is a Fire Fighter for the Arlington Fire Department! These two were so easy to work with…I didn’t have to do anything but shoot pictures! They would naturally just get close and play. You could see how in love they were…
A really cute story on how they met (which I completely stole from their wedding page…with permission of course)…haha!
One night, while moonlighting as a bouncer at Whitlows, Ted spied a cute hostess girl dancing behind the bar. They would become friends always looking forward to working together each weekend. Of course, leave it to Ted to never actually ask her out. Before he knew it Carol had left Whitlows, never to see her again.
About three months later, while going out to grab a beer at the Rock Bottom, the most amazing thing happened. As Ted was walking through the restaurant , he heard his name being called out. Looking around in his usual confused state, who should he see but the cute hostess girl from Whitlows?!
He knew right then and there that he had been given a second chance and to not let this wonderful girl pass him by! After asking for her number, they went on their very first date the following weekend.
Carol and Ted have been dating for an amazing two years!!!
Note for Carol & Ted: I’m really excited for your wedding and upset that you didn’t reserve the haunted, creepy, weirdo house (a location they went to look at for the wedding reception) for your perfect day! HAHA…JK! …just about the house part and I really am excited for the wedding. J I wish you two lived closer! Also…thank you for battling the crazy wind at Webster Park for some awesome waves! Have a wonderful summer in VA and see you in September!
