When Casey Linsey approached Travis Wells on the eve of the Fourth of July on Public’s rooftop deck, the attraction was instant. “She was the first woman to take the initiative to talk to me—she was a go-getter,” says Travis.
There may have been some bumps leading up to their first date—he was running late, and she was convinced she’d been stood up—but when Travis showed up with a beautiful bouquet and took Casey on the best first date of her life to Great Falls, she was charmed.
On the second anniversary of the day Travis asked Casey to be his girlfriend, he took her out to the National Mall, under the guise of giving visiting family members the grand tour. “We strolled along the Mall and found ourselves at the World War II Memorial, the spot of the end of our first date and our first kiss,” says Casey. “Getting down on one knee, he told me how much he loved me and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life loving me.”
The couple later returned to the World War II Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial with Matoli Keely Photography later to capture their love story, and enjoyed cupcakes during a photo session at the Old Stone House Garden in Georgetown.
Casey and Travis are set to marry at the Cathedral of Saint Matthew the Apostle on April 18, 2015.
