I was smitten within five minutes of talking with Becca! I fell completely in love with her and the incredible love story she + Ben share. The couple met in April 2007 in Kathmandu, Nepal, at the beginning of a trek to the Base Camp of Mount Everest. Becca was traveling alone and met Ben’s father at the Kathmandu airport. Ben’s father immediately recognized Becca as someone he must introduce to his son – and he did! The couple spent a day together in Kathmandu getting to know each other, but they parted for their respective treks without plans to ever see each other again.
Though a second encounter was never planned, Becca + Ben randomly crossed paths on three occasions on their way to Base Camp. The final meeting resulted in plans to spend the summer traveling together before they both departed to law school. With Becca at Stanford and Ben at Yale, Becca transferred after their first year of law school and they moved to Washington, D.C. upon graduation.
Becca + Ben took a brief trip to Iceland this January and when the Northern Lights appeared on their first night there, Ben proposed. Becca said yes!
Their story makes me giddy and I feel so lucky to be a part of their very special day. Congrats, B + B – I can’t wait to share in the joy on Sunday! xo-Kate
