We started the session bright and early at 7am, before the streets of Chicago got too crowded. It was also on a Sunday morning. half the city was still asleep when we started the session at Milton Lee Olive Park. We then headed to the Wrigley Building for the second location of our session.
Q1: Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
A1: We met while we were in college at Illinois State in 2004. Our official hangout was going to a Halloween store to find a costume for Rudy (I know, so sad! But we were poor college kids!) We clicked and started dating shortly after that.
Q2: What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
A2: We have a lot of similar likes, such as our love to travel, spending time with our families and making memories with friends.
Q3: How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
A3: We make each other laugh at the silly things in life. We try not to make everything so serious, and have fun as much as possible.
Q4: Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
A4: We were on a 8 day sailing cruise through the Greek islands. Rudy surprised David with a proposal towards the end of the trip in Mykonos, Greece.
