chicago engagement :: julie + george


It all started in summer nine years ago. Long days, warm nights, and the local pool. During a summer of working together at the pool, Julie developed a bit of a crush on George. He had an inkling that she had her eye on him, however the two remained co-workers. What brought these two together? An evening staff party. With a little liquid courage, Julie went up to George and blurted out “You’re the hottest guy ever.”

The two quickly started dating, however the distance of Julie being at school in Iowa and George being in Chicago made the relationship challenging. The two parted ways, but over the years continued to see each other at different gatherings with mutural friends.

George claims that Julie “broke him down” and the two decided to give their relationship another try years later when they were both in the same state. George knew he wanted to spend the years ahead with Julie at his side, so on NYE 2012, he popped the question….and she couldn’t say no to the the hottest guy ever.

Congrats to you both! I hope that the days, months, years ahead are full of only love and happiness.
