Post-it doodles, office flirting, and after-work happy hours led to a relationship for Helen and Eric. The couple dated in secret at first, meeting each other at a coffee shop near their office to go on dates. Seven years later, they bought an apartment together. They hadn’t discussed marriage much, but the apartment-buying process got them thinking more about their future.
The Bride Helen Kim, 34, art director
The Groom Eric Rosevear, 35, graphic designer
The Date April 25
After two years in their place, Eric suggested they get dinner one night. “It was a beautiful summer evening, so I assumed we’d sit outdoors,” says Helen. When they found themselves indoors at one of Helen’s favorite restaurants, she suspected something was up. Still, Helen burst into tears when the proposal came. The couple chose to have an outdoor wedding with details inspired by the natural setting.
