Meredith and David met the “old fashioned” way: online. 😉 After Meredith initiated the first conversation between the pair, David eventually asked her out to dinner on U Street. On the night the couple were set to meet, however, Meredith made the regrettable mistake of driving to U Street. After looking for parking for more than 20 minutes, she arrived to the restaurant just before David was about to leave the restaurant, believing he was being stood up.
After three years of dating, David proposed to Meredith during a romantic trip to Charlottesville, Virginia, home of Meredith’s alma mater, the University of Virginia. But just days before the trip, Meredith became very ill and the trip was cancelled. Once Meredith was feeling better, David took her out to see the not-at-all romantic movie “Moonlight,” followed by dinner at one of the couple’s favorite restaurants, Himitsu. When the pair arrived back at Meredith’s apartment, there were flowers and champagne waiting on the counter. David got down on one knee and popped the question! Meredith and David plan to wed on September 22, 2018 at the Westin Georgetown in Washington, DC.
“We feel very fortunate to live in the DC area and have the monuments in our backyard” said Meredith. “We wanted to showcase the beauty of our city as well as the beautiful sunrise we are able to see every day. We also wanted to wear patriotic colors since we are in our nation’s capital. Our day started very early (sunrise!) but it was a complete success!” JB Elliott Photography captured all the love:
