Rachel and Sean met twelve years ago through the music scene, where they would see each other at shows around the Chicagoland area.
The First Date
Our first date was at Rachel’s place – we watched Silence of the Lambs!
[We knew we wanted to get married] a few months into dating, wild! We had known each other for a long time before we starting hanging out and then dating.
[The quirkiest thing about us is] our weird sense of humor. It’s exactly the same!
[We don’t have] a specific song, but anything by Sleep. It was one of the first bands we saw together after we started hanging out.
[The proposal happened] in our kitchen. It was New Year’s Eve and we were getting ready to cook dinner and have a zoom “party” with our friends since no one could go out at that time. Then we got to celebrate NYE and our engagement with our friends!
Take time to enjoy the excitement and not get caught up/stressed about all the little things along the way. Take some time for the two of you alone after the ceremony! And definitely check out your space after it’s set up before the guests come.
[Our relationship] hasn’t changed much since getting married, to be honest, and we mean that in best way. We just think it has brought us closer!
