  • Names: Julia & Jake Ages: I'm 28, he's 31 Started Dating: January 2011 Got Engaged: May 5th, 2012 Wedding Date: June 1st, 2013 Interesting Fact: We both have a fear of sour cream, we are Sherlock Holmes purists, and our favorite dinner is moscato and little caesars crazy bread :) Wedding Venue/Location: The Lighthouse Restaurant, Cedar Lake, IN. It's kind of a destination wedding, halfway between my family in the western Chicago suburbs, and his family in the middle of nowhere Indiana. Colors: pale seafoam/aqua, blush pink, and a little navy blue. Personalization: I have nooo idea...well actually, we both dislike champagne, so we're having a moscato toast, does that count? Wedding Website: haven't made one yet! Maybe once we have our e pics. Proposal Story: We had my ring custom made together, but he still managed to surprise me! He had a gift card for a nice restaurant, so I didn't suspect anything going out to dinner that night. We sat down and he left to use the washroom. He came back around the corner with a huge bouquet of pink roses! He got down one one knee and proposed, and he even had someone taking pictures the whole time! I'm so grateful to have pictures of him proposing. Everyone in the restaurant stood up and clapped for us, and lots of ladies came over to check out the ring, haha. What We Do: Well, I left my job as a geriatric social worker in Chicago to move to Jake's rural town in downstate Indiana. He is a high school math teacher and a basketball coach. I'm now working with special ed kids at his school, it's not my dream job, but we get to eat lunch together everyday, and have all the school breaks off together! That's pretty priceless to me right now.

    Age/FI age - 26 when we get married - I'm older by two months to the day.

    When did you start dating -
    We met in early 2006 and it was "love at second sight." (At first sight, I thought that he was literally gay, and he loved my accent but thought that I was irritating.) After a very rocky several years, we began seeing each other again in 2011 knowing that marriage was the ultimate goal (we weren't going to become a couple again unless marriage was a definite).

    When did you get engaged - We had been discussing and planning since late 2011/early 2012, but he asked my parents for their blessing and formally asked me in October 2012.

    Wedding date
    - 25th of June, 2013.

    Interesting fact
    - We met in our late teens while working for a very large, very rich rat.

    Wedding Venue/Location -
    Likely a courthouse or small area local to me, or even spontaneously during our cross-country drive (we'll be moving). For a myriad of reasons, our wedding will be private.

    Colour(s) -

    How are you personalizing your wedding? - Nobody will be there. I may try to work some aspects of my religion into the ceremony, but that would be just for myself.

    Wedding website/blog/bio - None yet.

    Proposal story -
    We visited Providence, RI, for a very short quick getaway without tiny human, and he asked me at the Waterfires after getting stuck in traffic for two hours and having a swanky (and very, very, very funny) Italian dinner. It was private and sweet. (When we were young, he proposed to me in a closet with a ring pop, and then he found a very nontraditional ring for me. He insisted on doing it traditionally this time.)
    What do you and FI do for a living (optional) - He works in the sciences field and I work in the legal field.

    Colour(s)  cobalt, teal, turquoise

We are getting married at sunrise on the beach where he first told me he loved me (at sunrise!) and having a breakfast (favorite meal!) reception. I grew up spending many sunrises at the beach for quiet time and sunrise is so symbolic ot us of beginnings. (yes, I know, if you were my guest you'd think I was cruel, but I get all positive from our small group of guests who love us!)
    Wedding website/blog/bio  under construction.

    Proposal story: FI and I've been together for 4+ years and I thought it was going to be a while longer, but he just decided it was time and surprised me. But like REALLY surprised me- for the first time in our entire relationship I think.

    I live in Peru in a city that sits at the base of a 5 mile high snow-capped volcano. I fell in love with this city and its volcano 10 years ago and attempted to climb it, reaching the top but not making it to the summit after what was the biggest physical effort of my life- the altitude is killer. 10 years later, I'd been wanting to climb it to celebrate my anniversary of this being "my city" (he's from here) and convinced him to climb it too. We talked about it all year but never got around to physically preparing with so many other things going on, but since it was the last weekend the weather permits for the year, he suggested we go for it a couple weeks ago. I was skeptical that 10 years older and in less physical shape, we would make it but figured it was worth the try. So 2 days and lots of tears, suffering, laughter, and incredible effort later, we actually made it to the summit. Where as soon as we could breathe (I was in tears of joy of reaching the peak) he knelt in the volcanic ash and asked me to marry him. It was an amazing metaphor for our relationship, such a signiticant place, and the perfect proposal for us. I said yes and then cried all the way down the volcano. :) He later explained he chose it because he wanted me to wake up every day and see the towering volcano and remember how much he loved me and to raise our children together in this city where they could know the significance when they look at it too.

    Proposal story:
    I knew Mike had bought a ring and asked my dad back in May of 2012 (he's not a good secret keeper!).  But he made we wait until August to throw me off.  It was a random Wednesday after a long day at the shop.  We were about to make dinner when he decided we should go for a walk instead (we do that sometimes, so I tried not to get to suspicious in fear of not getting my hopes up!)  Anyway, we hiked down to a part of the park we like to go watch the sunset...and there was another couple there, so we walked over to a different part of the park.  We were sitting on a bench talking about the year (The shop just celebrated its first year in business, and I was coming up on a year of moving there and helping him run the shop...) I can't remember much of the convo casue the next thing I knew he was proposing (and so nervous!)  We went home and made dinner together and toasted with a champagne he had ready on ice :)

  • Name/FI: Danni and Danny


    Age/FI age: 35/38 (We will be 36/39 when we get married.)


    When did you start dating:  April 3, 2010 (that was our first date and the date we officially celebrate as our anniversary, we actually emailed, messaged and talked for a couple of weeks before that)

    When did you get engaged: January 13, 2012

    Wedding date: June 8, 2013

    Interesting fact: Our first date was a blind date that was set up by a mutual friend.  Another one: since he's Danny and I'm Danni we go by D1 (him) and D2 (me) for clarification among family and friends, lol.

    Wedding Venue/Location: We’re getting married at the Scottish Rite Temple of Kansas City in Kansas City, MO.  I loved the architecture of the building and the fact that it won' require a ton of decorating to be pretty.  As a bonus the building belongs to a branch of an organization that both FI and I are very active in so we're helping support that organization and the good they do in the process of having a beautiful venue for our wedding Smile.


    Wedding Colors: Regency/royal purple and daffodil yellow along with the colors in our family's Scottish tartans (mostly blues and greens)

    How are you personalizing your wedding?:  Our wedding is pretty well turning into a modern Celtic wedding.  We're definitely not trying for an old world/renaissancey feeling to it but we're incorporating many different items from our Scottish heritage.  Almost all the men will wear full Scottish regalia, my dress will have my family's tartan incorporated into the dress itself along with some Celtic knotwork embroidered on it and we'll be doing a tartan pinning ceremony and having a bagpiper pipe us down the aisle. 


    Wedding website/blog/bio: Wedding website is http://dannellanddanny.ourwedding.com/ and planning bio is http://dannianddanny.weebly.com/.


    Proposal story: FI and I went to Vieques Island, Puerto Rico for his best friend's wedding.  It was a very small destination wedding and the bride and groom decided to take everyone on a tour of the bioluminescent bay that's down there (it's one of the best in the world).  We were kayaking through the tour and FI was having a hard time finding a comfy position in the kayak because his back was hurting so he ended up rocking the kayak every time he moved.  It made me pretty frustrated with him because he wasn't telling me why he was rocking the kayak and I'm terrified of deep water and kept picturing us flipping the kayak in the pitch dark and me not being able to get back in the kayak.  About halfway through the tour FI said "Hey I've got a question for you."  Being very frustrated with him I was pretty short with him and said "What?!"  He said, "Will you marry me?"  I responded with "This is no time to be joking!" (thinking he was messing with me since we were there for a wedding and we had been discussing possibly getting married in the future).  He said "I'm not joking." which left me completely speechless.  I'm not sure how long I just sat in the kayak not paddling but it was long enough that he jokes about how long it was (he exaggerates the amount of time just to get my goat).  When I opened my mouth to respond, I wanted to say "OMG YES!"  What actually came out, however, was "Well I guess the appropriate response is yes."  I was SO embarrassed.  FI loved my response and found it hilarious.  He loves to tell the proposal story over and over and every time he does the time I was silent gets a little longer with each version he tells, LOL.  It definitely doesn't paint me in a flattering light but he loves it so it'll go in the scrapbook exactly as it happened.


    What do you and FI do for a living: I work at a non-profit association for flour and grain millers as an Administrative Assistant and FI works at the Harley Davidson plant in KC making V-Rod frames.

    Proposal story: First he had to smuggle the ring through the airport, and was nervous that the alarm might go off or TSA would stop him and pull it out.  He was acting weird all morning, but I brushed it off as him being tired.  After church, we went back to my sister's house where she pulled out Easter baskets for us.  In mine was the box my ring came in, I opened it up to find it full of chocolate! I was so mad I almost threw the box at him, but when I looked up he was there with ring in hand.

    Wedding website/blog/bio:http://LavrielleAndSytiria.ourwedding.com

    Proposal story: The proposal story is very simple but  unexpected!! My fiancé had gone to a friends house to watch a game.  When he returned, I was in bed watching a sappy love story movie.  He comes to kiss me as he always does when he comes home, but this time he didn't turn to walk away as usual.  He took my hand and said "honey, will you marry me"! I didn't know if he was serious because he didn't have a ring.  I said "yes, of course" in a sarcastic tone.  He said no I am serious, I don't have a ring because I would like your input.  I have selected 3 that I like and I would like to take you to pick your favorite.  The next day, we went to the jewelry store, and the rest is history!

    Age/FI age
    When did you start dating
    Technically 2 years ago, but our close friends tease us say a lot longer than that because we've known each other for over a decade and never dated anyone else :)
    When did you get engaged
    August 29th, 2012
    Wedding date
    June 9th, 2013
    Interesting fact
    M&Ms wouldn't let me personalize the candy with our wedding date due to "Inappropriate and offensive content"...by the time I realized what they were referring to it was too late to change the date.
    Wedding Venue/Location
    Ceremony will be outside of our church and the reception will be at the Sunset Ballroom in Burlington, VT
    Navy, ivory and yellow
    How are you personalizing your wedding?
    Little things here and there, nothing that hasn't been done before most likely, but all together the wedding will represent us as a couple :)
