The love story of Emily and Sterling is a beautiful testament to the success of online dating. “We were matched by eHarmony, and went on our first date a couple weeks later,” says Emily. The new acquaintances were both traveling through Austin that day, but they managed to quickly meet for coffee. “The date lasted a whopping 45 minutes, but it was pretty clear that there were going to be more dates to come.” Four months later, on a skiing trip to Vail, Sterling got down on one knee and proposed to an overjoyed Emily. “I don’t remember his exact words, but I knew I couldn’t wait to say, ‘Yes!’” The couple wed in an intimate ceremony shared with 175 of their friends and family members, in Old Glory Ranch’s charming Chapel Hall. “The wedding ceremony was perfect,” Emily says. “A month before, our pastor had asked us each to describe three characteristics we loved about the other person. The ceremony was the first time we heard the words we had each chosen for each other. We spoke our vows and sealed them with a kiss.” The reception to follow held many special moments, including lots of dancing and a fun sparkler send-off at the end of the night. “It was the perfect start to our happily ever after,” says the bride.
