An Urban Meets Rural Mash-Up Engagement Session in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

Aug 14, 2019

Have I said how much I love my Heather Marie Couples??? Well guess what, I do!!! So much more than you can imagine! Especially when they travel all the way from Georgia for their engagement session!

How can I not love them!

Matt was raised in Pennsylvania, but after college, headed down to start his life in Georgia. It was through a dating app that these two found each other. I never experienced a dating app because Joel and I were already dating before they became really common, so I never had to worry about them. So I always LOVE to hear the stories from my couples on how it all played out.

For Katie and Matt, it started off quite quickly and never slowed down.

After a few messages back and forth, Matt invited Katie over for dinner at his place. She was definitely nervous for the first date and said to me at their session that she was thinking, “Well, this will either go great, or it could go really bad.” I am soooo glad it went great because they are the cutest together. Matt cooked her a delicious meal, and they talked for hours. After that, everything just continued to grow, and now they are getting married in October 2019 at the beautiful Inn at Leola.

You all have no idea how excited I am about this wedding!!

Just wait until you see their photos below! These two just love being wrapped up in each others arms! Matt is so crazy for Katie, and it showed every time he looked at her! And the constant kisses on her cheek. Just to say he loves her! Katie and Matt, your kindness and happiness are so contagious and refreshing! I was so excited for your wedding after our initial chat, but now, I can barely contain my excitement. Thank goodness it is only a couple months away! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do! Always keep that happiness radiating!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
