These lovebirds have parted oceans literally for each other. They are are LONG distance lovers. An Aussie and an American who fell in love.
Nathan and Caitlin first met through some mutual friends at a party in Baltimore, MD. It took them a few months to decide whether to date or remain friends because Nathan would be leaving the US to return to his home in Australia in just a few months. They opted for the challenge and knew that it would take a lot of work but neither of them wanted it any other way. They weren’t prepared for the emotional rollercoaster ride that was about to take place. They had a lot going against them—opposite timezones, being across the world from each other, visa problems, etc. It also didn’t help that when folks heard "long distance relationship" they automatically think that they were destined for failure and heartbreak. But Nathan and Caitlin managed to succeed and they came out stronger than ever. (Thank God for FaceTime!) An ENTIRE YEAR went by before they were finally able to meet up again in person. Nathan proposed surrounded by penguins, Caitlin’s absolutely favorite animal!
The wedding was beautiful, with 150 friends and family present to witness their sweet sweet vows. Hearing Nathan say “I choose you over, and over, and over again,” made me tear up during the ceremony. Even their first touch was sweet, cute, and gave us a good laugh.
Nathan + Caitlin, we absolutely loved spending the day alongside you all. So excited for your adventures to come, and honestly, I’m really glad you guys are living on this side of the planet!
