How We Met

We both began attending Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana in the fall of 2010. Although, we were both from the Michiana area and both attended Indiana University South Bend in the fall of 2008 we had not met prior to meeting in Bloomington. From there everything just seemed to work out for us to spend more and more time together and really get to know each other.

Our Engagement Story

We waited until we were completely debt free and the moment was entirely expected. We were at a gathering with old friends and took a break from the festivities to seal the deal.

About the Ring

The ring was something that I didn't know at all what I wanted. We went to several places and looked at a lot of different rings. We finally landed at a pawn shop in South Bend that had the perfect ring. An 18K gold band that has an eight pointed star made from diamonds. I wanted something unique that I would enjoy wearing everyday and that is exactly what we found.

Our First Date

We sat on a balcony and talked for hours.

Our Favorite Date Night

Pitchfork Music Festival.

Our Shared Interests

Music is something we both love. Whether its watching Ben's band play, seeing local bands, or traveling to different towns to see bands we both enjoy, that is one of our favorite things to do.

The Part of the Wedding We're Most Excited About

The celebration with friends and family.

Additional Details

Watch out, the world is our playground. We may just shock the goodness out of you.
