Cori & Brett in Marietta, GA
Cori got tired of the same old dating scene. And though she hesitated to give online dating a shot, it turned out to be the best decision she’d ever made. She signed up for eHarmony, and after Cori’s colleague convinced her to meet Brett for one drink, she ended up staying for three. “We both felt something different this time,” says Cori.
The Bride Cori Schleger, 36, corporate meeting planner
The Groom Brett Bokath, 35, civil engineer
The Date May 2
The couple dated for five-and-a-half months before taking a romantic trip to the Dominican Republic. Brett scoured the beach for the perfect spot and that evening, beneath the starry sky, he asked Cori to be his wife. The couple spent the next year planning their English-style outdoor wedding in Marietta.
