#ZolaCouple: Meet Cortney + Maurice

Meet our latest #ZolaCouple, Cortney and Maurice. These two gorgeous people met in college, and literally jumped over hurdles to get together. They fell in love, and the rest is history. Read for yourselves! How did you meet? We ran on the same track team in college and had the same circle of friends. Both being hurdlers, we spent lots of time training together day in and day out – where we got to know one another first as friends and eventually began to develop a relationship. How did he propose? He didn’t. I didn’t. Marriage was something that neither of us had ever dreamt about, but we knew we wanted to spend our lives together. We discussed the idea of eloping and realized it was an option that excited us the most! What was the first thing you did after you got engaged? Had an IPA at our favorite neighborhood brewery. Tell us about your wedding & the theme! We decided to have a handful of our family come along with us to Washington’s beautiful San Juan Islands. …

#ZolaCouple: Meet Melody & Keith, the Coffee Lovebirds

Meet our latest #ZolaCouple, Melody and Keith. These two lovebirds are the kind of couple you look at and just feel the energy of their love. It is a beautiful thing to witness, and has most certainly inspired us to share! From spending Q.T. in their cozy & chic Kentucky home to supporting each other in all of their dreams and aspirations, we are head over heels for this #ZolaCouple. How did you meet? We were actually co-workers! We both worked at a campus ministry located on the University of Kentucky’s campus. We worked two desks apart from each other and honestly never thought twice about the other person. About a year and a half in something changed! How did he propose? Long story short – He did it in such a normal way, which I loved! It felt like every other day, and it was a part of something we would actually be doing in a normal part of our lives together. After meeting my parents for dinner in Downtown Lexington, it was pouring down rain, so we decided …

It’s Pre-Engagement Season!

It’s Pre-Engagement Season Recently we surveyed over 1,000 newlywed and engaged couples about pre-engagement. You might know pre-engagement as the relationship stage when a bride-to-be (or groom, for that matter!) is feeling in limbo waiting for their S.O. to get down on one knee. You probably experienced it yourself, and considering the holiday season is the most popular time to get engaged, we bet you have at least one friend going through it right now. The truth is that most couples today are planning for their future together before they become officially engaged! In fact, almost 100% of couples broach the subject of marriage before putting a ring on it, and the vast majority have dreams about what their big day will be like, from the dress to the decor. Our survey also found that 60% of couples plan some part of their nuptials before becoming engaged. From scheduling a potential-pre-proposal manicure, to creating a secret (or not-so-secret) Pinterest board, pre-engagement activity is real. Here are some other stats from our survey: Pre-Proposal Planning 94% …
