Kristie and Joe met through Kristie’s old boss. Kristie said she was trying to set them up for a couple years, but never pursued it because she thought it was strange her boss was trying to set her up! Eventually Kristie took another role at her company and her former boss secretly planned for Joe and Kristie to meet at a broadway musical. They met during intermission and have been together ever since!
In May of 2016, Kristie started working at her dream job and Joe planned a celebratory dinner at Chicago Cut. After dinner, they decided to take a walk down the riverwalk since it was a beautiful night. Little did Kristie know that Joe had planned to propose! They were the only ones on the bridge at the time and everything was perfect!
Every Sunday Kristie and Joe go shopping for vinyl records, so they came up with the great idea of using Reckless Records for their engagement session! It was even more perfect since it was really cold that day and it was nice having an indoor space to utilize that was special to their relationship. They ended up braving the cold for the rest of the session on the riverwalk since that’s where the proposal took place. Can’t wait to shoot their wedding this fall!
