Alora wasn't sure she wanted to go, but her friend Dan convinced her to come with her to the Lodge's holiday party. I mean, it could be fun, right? Holiday cheer, good food, and music - what's not to love?! But when her friend Dan had to fulfill his duties as Santa for the family portraits, Alora was left standing there not knowing anyone. Now if it were me, I probably would have just left or migrated to the wall and remained there until my friend came back and saved me from my introvertedness, but not Alora. In the way that only Alora could, she confidently struck up a conversation with some people standing by asking them who their freshman roommates were - maybe she would recognize some names since she knew some of the students that attended the school.
After hearing a bunch of freshman roommate names she didn't know, she saw Frank. Now I would like to think that the sea of people in the room parted and a soft light shown down on the moose head mounted on the wall that Frank was sitting under by himself eating pizza. Let's just go with that. That doesn't just happen in the movies right? :) After seeing him, Alora decided to ask Frank who his freshman roommate was in the hopes of starting up a conversation with him. But Frank, well Frank's answer was not what she expected. Frank admitted he couldn't remember his clearly memorable freshman roommate (sorry Kyle)! The two laughed at his answer and soon found themselves talking for a while. The exchanged phone numbers and kept in contact and went on their first date to Margherita's in Hoboken just two weeks after the Lodger party. It was the beginning of their forever...
For their engagement session we headed to a gorgeous Connecticut vineyard! Can't wait for their wedding next fall! Here are a few of my favorites... :)
