We had heard of each other in high school, but we had not met until Johannah's senior year. Jean-Luc judged Johannah in a debate round . . . and he voted against her! Our paths crossed again at Hillsdale College where we fell in love over meals in the dining hall, mock trial tournaments, and studying for economics exams.
Jean-Luc came to visit Johannah and her family in Alabama and asked her to go hiking. Unbeknownst to her, he had coordinated with her family for weeks to find the perfect location and to plan the proposal. We went to a beautiful mountain overlook where her siblings were hiding out. They captured the moment when he popped the question and she said yes!
