Erika & Charles met in high school over a decade ago on a double date – but not with each other. They went to separate colleges, wishing each other the occasional “Happy Birthday” on Facebook. As fate would have it, though, they met once again as classmates in grad school in Pennsylvania in 2016. They quickly became friends, and took a chance on each other – and they’re so glad they did!
Charles popped the question at Acadia National Park, and they both marvel at the fact that it took them so many miles and so many years to find each other, even though they grew up 15 minutes from each other. Erika picked out the perfect beach for their engagement photos at Crane Beach in Ipswich (peep their gorgeous sunrise photos here!) and celebrated their big day not too far away on the Fourth of July at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA.
They had a perfectly sunny day complete with a wild and energetic wedding party, photos of all their world travels together, American and Korean traditions blending together seamlessly, and an ice cream sundae bar to put the cherry on top of their perfect day. Congrats #teamcherika!!!
Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
