How did you meet?
Phil literally walked into Elizabeth’s life (or rather, into her apartment) in December 2012. He was in Ann Arbor visiting a friend from High School and Elizabeth was this friend’s roommate. And the rest is history! After almost 4 years of adventures together, they are getting married on January 6, 2017.
Elizabeth and Phil took a long weekend getaway to Charlevoix, Michigan. Since Phil is a licensed private pilot, they flew up north. Upon landing, Phil drove Elizabeth to a local beach where he had lots of memories growing up. Elizabeth did not know she was being driven to the location where Phil would drop to one knee and leave her completely speechless. After she said YES, the couple celebrated with champagne on the beach and took some pictures with the photographer Phil had organized to capture it all. Phil had the entire weekend planned out, and Elizabeth learned that he had taken several trips up north while she was at work to organize everything. From the hotel to the roses and champagne waiting for them at their dinner restaurant, the weekend was entirely magical and Elizabeth calls it her “favorite weekend ever”. Phil knocked it out of the park with the most thoughtful proposal weekend ever and a beautiful round solitaire diamond from Rottermond’s that Elizabeth could not say no to!
