The Engagement of Liz and Joe
We are so thrilled to be sharing this amazing love story of J.Starr Couple Liz and Joe! With their wedding fast approaching we wanted to give a glimpse at some of their beautiful engagement photos along with sharing a bit about this lovely couple ~
Liz and Joe met at work in June of 2010. Their first impressions of each other (as told to us by Joe) were “Honestly the first thing I thought was can her jeans get any shorter on her calves and she was thinking who is this bald headed guy staring at me!” Eventually the couple started talking at work the following November and Joe asked Liz to go to a Phoenix Suns vs Chicago Bulls basketball game.
Liz and Joe casually dated for three years and then made it official in 2013! They admit they don’t know the exact date of when it happened, but Joe was the first to say “I love you” (right as he was going into a knee surgery!). Joe knew on the first date that he could see himself spending the rest of my life with Liz. For Liz, she doesn't really identify a specific moment....because she knows now that the feeling she's had from the first moment they spent time together one-one-one that they were always meant to be together.
This couple got engaged on the beach in Rocky Point, Mexico on November 19, 2016. The engagement was a total surprise! Joe kept telling Liz that he could see himself proposing in the spring of 2017, just to give her a hard time (because Liz loves the holidays and a proposal would make it even more magical). Joe even continued to tell Liz's friends that he'd probably propose in the spring, just to throw them all off! What meant the most during the whole experience was that the holidays were Liz's favorite time of the year and that this was going to be the first time the couple were going back to Chicago to meet her family for Christmas. Joe wanted to make it extra special for her.
Thank you for sharing your story with us Liz and Joe! We can’t wait for your big day!
