We met on Halloween in 2019, bonding over our shared interests, making bets on who would beat the other in a 5k, and eventually dancing the night away. The connection was instant, and over the following months, we grew certain that there was something different about our relationship. Even in a crowded room, we tend to gravitate toward each other.
On December 20, 2020, we went to the Tree of Life in Audubon Park to see if we would like to choose it as a wedding venue. Michael made me pretend to walk down the aisle, to help him visualize of what the ceremony would look like. I got to the base of the sprawling oak tree, and much to my surprise, Michael got down on one knee and proposed. We are so grateful to all of our family and friends who have supported and encouraged us as individuals and as a couple. You have made us who we are today, and we cannot wait to celebrate with you!
