Carter and Brittany | July 10, 2010

A note from Tonya: As part of our blog, we thought we would share our couples we have the priviledge of working with here at Circle City Planners. I wanted you to read about how they met, their upcoming plans for the BIG day, and share a cute picture. Enjoy! Here are Carter & Brittany

Carter is…
Composed, Quiet, Calm, Inquisitive, Attentive, Reserved

Brittany is…
Loud, Rebellious, Impulsive, Emotional, Social, Silly

They say opposites attract, and in our case that is definitely true…but that is what makes us so perfect for each other. After dating Carter for about 3 months, I was pretty certain he was the man I would marry, and I can’t wait to start our life together!!

The story of how we met is quite ironic. Carter grew up in Indianapolis, where he went to Park Tudor High School and after graduating, attended Emory University, hence how he ended up in Atlanta, Georgia. Brittany grew up in….ha well where to begin. She moved around a lot growing up because of her dad’s job and consequently for 6 years, lived in Fishers, Indiana which is a suburb of Indianapolis. Brittany was best friends with a girl named Katie Dierdorf while living in Indiana and this will play a large role later in the story about how Brittany and Carter met. Anyways, Brittany moved away from Fishers after 8th grade and moved on to Rhode Island for High School and then eventually made it to Georgia to finish college at Kennesaw State University, hence how she ended up in Atlanta. After Brittany had been in Atlanta for about 4 months, she decided to Facebook her old friend Katie Dierdorf (they had lost touch through the years) and low and behold where did Katie live…..Atlanta, Georgia.

Brittany contacted Katie and they picked up right where they left off. She started hanging out with Katie and her boyfriend Dustin, who had a friend he worked with named Carter. Carter and Brittany were introduced to each other in June 2007. They started out as just friends, but after one rather in-famous night at CJ’s Landing in Atlanta, Georgia, things would never be the same. Carter proceeded to ask Brittany out on a date after that night and as people say….the rest is history.

We continued to date over the next 2 years, having a blast and sharing a lot of very special memories with each other. One day in January of 2009 Carter asked me if I wanted to go “look” at rings together. Of course I was ecstatic, but little did he know I had already been scouring the internet for a couple months. That was a fun and amazing day in our relationship and of course I started thinking that the proposal was going to happen soon. Pretty much every time Carter asked me if I wanted to go to dinner, go on a date, heck even take our dogs for a walk I thought it was coming….and for months nothing. Then on one Friday in June, June 12th to be exact Carter suggested we make dinner and stay in. As I was cooking the enchiladas I noticed there was champagne in the fridge, but really didn’t think anything of it. We proceeded to eat dinner and were relaxing with wine when he disappeared for a few minutes. When he came back he was acting kinda weird, but again didn’t think anything of it…..and then all of the sudden I look over and he is down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

We decided to get married in Indianapolis and immediately began planning our wedding for July 10th, 2010 with Tonya. We are so excited for all the amazing plans she has for our special day and are counting the days until July 10th!

They are such a cute couple! I have known Brittany since she was a young girl and am not surprised that she has grown up to be a beautiful and fun woman. (She has a great role model).
