Vanessa and Charles struck up a friendship while she was studying abroad during college. They were introduced through Vanessa's cousin, who was high school friends with Charles. While Vanessa was in Italy she video chatted with Charles on a regular basis. It didn't take long upon Vanessa's return to the states for the couple to become inseparable.
About seven years later, Charles proposed over a romantic breakfast of crepes and berries. The couple decided to have their engagement photos taken where they plan to get married—Lewiston, Maine!
