Emily and Travis began their story as part of an online writing community, where they met and eventually fell in love, discovering that they had found the person with whom they wished to spend the rest of their lives. In 2013 Travis finally closed the distance between them, flying from Florida to Seattle so they could begin their life together. With him came Abbott the cat, who gained a new feline friend in Frisco, Emily’s much-beloved cat of 16 years.
Since then their love has only grown, through all trials and hurdles they have faced along the way. They recently moved into a new house in Kirkland, which quickly became a happy home for their small family. Emily and Travis are hoping you will join them in celebrating their wedding, and bear witness to the beginning of their marriage; the next in a happy series of chapters to their story begun years ago on the internet.
Although Travis and Emily both knew they had found the person with whom they wished to spend the rest of their lives, neither one felt inclined to rush. Then, in 2015, Emily was suddenly facing a very serious and unexpected surgery.
Thankfully the operation itself was a resounding success, but the weeks leading up until the surgery were fraught with uncertainty regarding the future, and they decided to wait no longer in affirming their feelings and commitment to one another.
Once the surgery was over they decided to propose to one another equally as a reflection of their relationship, choosing to deliver the heartfelt words they had prepared for one another in a quiet, romantic spot at the local marina. They both took it as a good sign that a bonded pair of ducks decided to join them for the whole process.
