Our Story

We met in Baltimore when Amanda moved down there for her first job in 2006. We were co-workers and friends until fate had a way of throwing us together at a Christmas party in 2008. New Year's Eve was our first of many dates. After a brief separation while Dan got his act together, we got back together on May 16, 2009 at the same friend's wedding who had the Christmas party. We've been together ever since and have a blast living outside of Baltimore with the best dog ever – Rocky and Karma our cat. Life has been great for us and we cannot wait until April 5th to share our happiness and joy with all of our friends and family. The ceremony is tentatively set to start at 4:30 p.m.

After viewing a few places around the Baltimore area, we gladly decided on The Cloisters to be our wedding venue. This nationally registered historic house has a multitude of nooks and crannies that you'll want to lose yourself in like we do. Every time we visit, we find something new. Be sure to take a tour of the house as we have the run of the whole venue. Some of the Cloister's employees will also be on hand to answer any questions.
