Brittany and Tim’s story has a sweet beginning, literally.
Read on to hear how this New York #BlueprintPair found each other and fell in love. Can’t you just feel the joy emanating from these bright and cheery engagement photos?
How did you two meet? What did you do for your first date?
Brittany: I used to work in a very fancy bakery in NYC with Tim’s best friend. He would come in to visit and I thought he was the cutest.
Tim: I had the summer off, so I would stop in the bakery often. I asked my friend about Brittany and we went out shortly after that. We went to a small restaurant near Brittany’s neighborhood for our first date.
Tell us your proposal story!
Brittany: Tim asked after dinner at our favorite Ramen place in the East Village the night before I flew home to Texas to be in a friend’s wedding. We called all of our family on the way to my best friends apartment where we shared champagne and cried and danced.
Tim: I had the ring for a month or so before I asked. We had been cooped up inside all winter and I was waiting to pop the question. I finally did after dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.
When and where are you tying the knot?
Brittany: We’re getting married on March 25, 2016 at Spicewood Vineyards in the Texas Hill Country outside Austin.
What part of the wedding are you most excited about?
Brittany: Besides seeing Timmy’s face when I walk down the aisle? I’m a makeup artist so I’m around weddings a lot. I really do cherish getting to witness a woman at her most beautiful! As a self proclaimed glamour-obsessed girly girl I’m beyond excited for my wedding day look head-to-toe!
Tim: I can’t wait to see Brittany in her dress. I am also excited for all of our friends and family to be together celebrating with us.
What made you choose Blueprint Registry?
Tim: I liked that our choices aren’t confined to one store or website.
How are you using Blueprint Registry – gifts, experiences, or a mix of both?
Brittany: We’re registering for a few gifts– we’re in our 30s so we have a lot of things already. We’re really hoping that people will generously help with our honeymoon.
What is your favorite gift that you’ve received? What gift are you most looking forward to?
Tim: We have already received a few gifts that are very nice; we love our place-settings from Crate and Barrel. We are appreciative of any gifts that we get!
Brittany: I think we’re looking forward to our honeymoon the most. Tim and I have been on plenty of trips together with family and a lot of weekend getaways, but this will be our first real vacation alone!
What’s your favorite Blueprint feature?
Brittany: I really appreciated the virtual room tours. It made the process so much less overwhelming.
Tim: My favorite is the ability to add gifts from other websites. I think that’s a great idea.
What advice do you have for others planning their weddings?
Brittany: Don’t lose sight of why this is all happening– it’s about the celebration of love and not really much else.
Tim: Be sure to be open and communicative with your partner.
