How Did You Meet?: We were set up on a blind date by mutual friends of ours. Ironically enough that is exactly how my parents met too.
Engagement Story?: Justin and I have been together for roughly 5 1/2 years so of course the topic of marriage comes up relatively frequently. We had decided that we wanted to wait until I was done with school and found a job. That way we knew were we would be living and relatively stable in the career aspects of our lives before we undertook the enormity that planning a wedding can be. So in November 2010 I found a great job right outside of Chicago. Once we were all settled in our new city we decided we were ready to start embarking on the next adventure. Being a perfectionist and a designer I started planning my wedding right away and before we knew it we had planned and booked almost everything except the rings and an actual “proposal”. Now I’m not the type of girl that needs some grand gesture for a proposal, so Justin and I picked out our rings (with much help from Carrie!) and I told him he could propose anyway he wanted to and whenever. As long as it was before July 2nd. 🙂 At least he knows he’s getting a guaranteed YES! So I like to think that this chapter of our story hasn’t quite ended yet. Stay tuned…
