Sarah Folse and Paul Dochterman are getting married!!! They have set their wedding this year in New Orleans, LA and these two are just meant to be. They met during a Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) event in Baton Rouge and although they didn't actually "meet" they did catch each other's eyes. Brian said that they didn't get a chance to talk, but definitely glanced in her direction many times to get a glimpse of her name-tag! Thanks to an email Sarah sent out of a Chinese coleslaw to all the volunteers after the event, Paul and Sarah were able to correspond via email and later hang out with her showing him around Baton Rouge since he was new to the area. They were inseparable since and grew to know one another. Even with not agreeing to certain things, like all couples do, both of them knew that they had found "THE ONE" when they both realized the other complimented them in many ways and they just truly love one another. The PROPOSAL:
Sarah: "I had hoped that Brian would proposed before the end of the year, but was convinced I would be able to figure it out. I am the one who makes most of our plans, so I figured that any hint of him planning an activity would be a give-away for the proposal. He asked me to make our Christmas dinner plans, and I was disappointed because I took that as a sign that Christmas wouldn’t be “the night”. However, before we went to dinner, he casually mentioned that he wanted to stop at Grand Central on the way home from dinner, so that he could take some pictures for his mom. After spending all day drinking wine with a friend and her family, I went along with it, and didn’t suspect a thing. After dinner, we walked to Grand Central and he spent about 10 minutes taking tons of pictures. He suggested we go to the Whisper Wall. As we each went to a side of the wall, he began to whisper to me. I didn’t realize what was about to happen, so I started making funny noises and jokes back at him. He got my attention and then said he took me there so that we could have a place to show our kids and grandkids where we got engaged, then got down on one knee!"
Brian: "I proposed to her at the Whisper Wall in Grand Central Station after we went out to dinner in the city on Christmas. I told her that my sister sent me a text asking me if I could take some last minute pics of Grand Central Station & send them to her so she could print & frame some for my mom (she's a History buff) the next day. The last pictures of Grand Central Station I took were of the Whisper Wall. Once I told Sarah I was all done, I suggested we used the Whisper Wall before we left. She stood in one corner & I in the other & then I began whispering as to why I brought her to the Whisper Wall on Christmas. Before she could turn around, I walked to the arch she was at & when she turned around I got on one knee & asked her to marry me. Just so happened that there was a choir in the middle of the four arches who started singing Christmas carols at that exact moment. She thought it was a flash mob I planned. It wasn't though...or was it…"
What a wonderful proposal!!! Congratulations Sarah and Brian! They want to bring NYC to their New Orleans wedding so here's a few teasers from their NYC wedding engagement photography session! They just look amazing in these photos!
