Let’s hear your love story! We met when Anna was visiting her brother, Owen, in Boston. Weston was alsoÂ in town from Connecticut visiting a friend, who was Owenâ€™s neighbor. We allÂ ended up at Owens at a party, and we spent the entire night talking, bondingÂ over our musical taste.Â Weston thought Anna lived in Boston, but called her anyway. In actuality we onlyÂ lived about 30 minutes away from each other in Connecticut. After our first fewÂ dates we pretty much jumped in with both feet. Weâ€™ve dealt with a lot of lifeâ€™s littleÂ and not so little challenges since weâ€™ve been together. Weâ€™ve moved (manyÂ times), adopted a dog, dealt with birth, and death, and celebrated a lot ofÂ accomplishments, as well as built each other up during hard/stressful times. WeÂ are excited to make it official and continue building our life and our homeÂ together.
Whatâ€™s your favorite thing to do on any given Saturday together?Â Either spend the night on the couch with Mahoney, our pit bull, or walk downtownÂ for some live music and hopefully some dancing!
What is one trait that you love about in your fiancÃ©?
Weston:Â Her determination, and drive to succeed, at whatever she sets her mindÂ to.
Anna: Heâ€™s a goof when he wants to be, but at the same time, is the one of theÂ most thorough, and precise people Iâ€™ve ever met, and always with a sense ofÂ humor. Also he can build / remodel / cook just about anything!
How did he pop the question?Â Last summer we decided to pick up and move from Connecticut to the NewÂ Hampshire Seacoast to lay down roots close to family, in a area rich in cultureÂ and nature. We had a party to say goodbye to all our friends, and whileÂ everyone was outside, Weston started a little speech thanking everyone forÂ coming. He then got down on one knee, and asked me to spend the rest of myÂ life with himâ€¦
Who was the first person you told about your engagement?Â Most of our friends, and Annaâ€™s brother was there. We called Annaâ€™s sister andÂ brother in law first, then our parents. It took them a little while to pick up!
How did you decide where you wanted to get married?Â Before we got engaged, we thought how fun and enjoyable it would be to getÂ married on Annaâ€™s folks land.
What has been your favorite part of wedding planning?Â Lots of our loved ones have had a hand in helping to plan and create things forÂ our wedding, which has been a lot of fun. We are making a lot of touchesÂ ourselves too, including part of the favors. We are growing the flowers on theÂ farm, and putting all the center pieces and bouquets together the day before, inviting family and friends to help. We love brewing beer, so weâ€™ll be brewing aÂ keg or two for the festivities, and Westonâ€™s even building the bar!Â Its been really fun to try and keep it all local and exploring our new home whileÂ planning.
What do you look forward to the most about being married?
Weston: enjoying life, that much more.
Anna: Calling him my husband!
