Paul and Bree met for the first time 5 years ago in rural North Carolina. Despite being in the same medical school class and having overlapping social circles, things didn't progress until Paul made a losing bet against Bree in a Ravens-Steelers OT game at the bar one night. A few weeks later, Bree convinced her friend Randi to visit NYC for a holiday weekend getaway. Paul graciously offered to help them navigate the city, take pictures of them posing at the sights and introduce them to Chinatown soup dumplings.
Bree introduced Paul to a love of country music, the proper way to catch blue crabs and how to sink or swim (literally) . And Paul taught Bree a newfound appreciation for Vietnamese food, how to run routes while throwing the football and the importance of owning more than 3 pairs of shoes.
A few years, multiple trips around the globe and 2 doctorate degrees later, Paul and Bree found themselves in Detroit for residency with their dog Laila. A few months ago Paul finally popped the question during their first camping adventure in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
We are so looking forward to starting this new chapter together and can't wait to celebrate with all of our favorite people!
