She caught his eye with her yellow dress. Her yellow Fanta Girl dress.
That is the kind of beginning all love stories should have, you guys. Anyways, it’s true. Wendy and Tomer first met online, and her profile picture from Halloween was what first piqued his interest. At the time, Tomer was living in our nation’s fine capital, Washington D.C., but Wendy called Baltimore home, and quite frankly wasn’t too interested in dating a guy who lived an hour away. At least not at first. But Wendy and Tomer began chatting anyway, despite the hour of travel between them, and when Wendy had a free evening off from her demanding medical residency position, she decided what the heck, why not travel down to DC and meet this guy in person?
Fast forward three and a half years, past that first date, past the official start of their relationship, past Tomer’s move to Baltimore and the daily 2-hour commute to his DC job that followed, past the adoption of Collins, Wendy and Tomer’s adorable and sweet pup, past shared travel and adventures and the general loveliness that comes when you’re living life beside the one you love for 3.5 years, and we land at the Thanksgiving table, 2014. Tomer joined Wendy and her family for the holiday, and when Wendy asked if he could grab more stuffing from the kitchen, he happily obliged. Sort of. Tomer did go to the kitchen, but what he came back with was not a casserole full of delicious bread and butter goodness. Instead he returned with a small box holding one of the most beautiful engagement rings I’ve ever seen, and he knelt and, in front of her family, asked Wendy to married him. After a brief pause due to a small bout of confusion over the lack of fresh stuffing, Wendy ecstatically said YES to the man of her dreams, and then quickly forgave him for forgetting the stuffing ;)
I got the chance to head up to Baltimore to explore a few of W+T’s favorite parts of Baltimore for their engagement session not too long ago, and absolutely loved getting to know these two! Apart, both Wendy and Tomer are clearly extremely intelligent, hilariously fun, incredibly stylish (and good looking!) humans, but together they manage to build up each other’s strengths even more, highlighting the best in each other. We got the chance to wander through Patterson Park, a lovely expanse of stone pathways, trees, a pond and even an incredible pagoda right in the heart of the city. And once the sun set down and the lights began popping on, we made our way over to the waterfront and Baltimore’s iconic Domino Sugar Factory sign—the perfect way to cap off such a lovely Baltimore evening! Enjoy a few of my favorites from the engagement session of these two lovely humans, and if you’re already getting excited for their September wedding, I, for one, would not blame you!
We take a break from this adorable programming to present you with: the cutest pup in the world jumping into a pond while chasing ducks! Collins, you’re the cutest!
