My fiance and I are mechanical engineers who live in Indianapolis, IN and have been together 5+ years. We are getting married in rural Southeastern Indiana. When we are not planning our wedding, we love to de-stress by drinking some beers with our friends or doing an outdoor activity like biking or hiking. :)
