We are so excited to introduce you to another set of lovebirds that are tying the knot with us this month! Introducing Rochelle + Paul!
Rochelle + Paul are made for each other– they even share affection for their favorite professional soccer club! The months and months these two put into planning their day with us has paid off, and their wedding is just a few weeks away! We wanted to introduce this rockstar couple with you, so you could get to know a bit about them and see why we think this duo is so dynamic, and why we are so excited to see them get hitched!
Tell me a little bit about your love story! When did you meet? How did you get engaged?
Rochelle’s cousin, Amy, and Paul were best friends throughout high school. Paul lived in Michigan, and in Spring of 2013, Amy thought it was an awesome idea to introduce us via technology because she thought it would be a great match. After months of long phone calls and Skype sessions, Paul flew out to Seattle to meet Rochelle. From then, the entire relationship was long distance, until that summer when Paul moved to Seattle! He proposed unexpectedly during Rochelle’s trip to visit in March after a family dinner at his parent’s home.
What activities & hobbies do you and your fiancé enjoy in your free-time?
We love going to sporting events, especially Sounders matches. We both love our alma maters, so we try to support both Penn State and University of Washington as much as possible. Additionally, we both root for the Seahawks and Rochelle has grown to enjoy the Detroit Lions as well. We love going out to dinner together, and lounging around watching movies and some of our favorite TV shows.
How you would describe your “Couple Style”?
We both love Jesus Christ, our families, and our friends. We are both fiercely loyal to the people who matter most to us. We both also like to give back to the community, and are constantly busy… ☺ We are busy-bodies, you could say!
