Heather & Michael in Chattanooga, TN

For Michael Carter, it was love even before first sight. He spotted a picture of Heather Lewis while hanging out with his college classmate, Amanda, Heather’s friend. Smitten, he asked Amanda if he could call her friend. The Bride Heather Lewis, 26, exercise physiologist The Groom Michael Carter, 27, resident physician The Date February 23 Amanda held out for a while, wanting to make sure that Michael was “good enough” for her best friend. Once Amanda decided he met her approval, Michael met Heather in person. The pair began emailing, instant messaging, and talking on the phone. They made their long-distance love last and eventually moved to be together. Six years after their romance began, Michael proposed to Heather -- not once, but twice. He first proposed over an intimate dinner, but he didn’t have Heather’s real ring yet. Once the ring was ready, he planned an elaborate proposal in front of the old ladies that attended Heather’s class for people with arthritis. Heather said yes both times, and they started planning a colorful winter wedding in their native state.
