THE STORY OF JULIA + GREG

“Our story began in Summer of 2013.”

GREG’S MBA CLASSMATE WHO WORKED AT TD HOSTED A BOAT CRUISE NETWORKING EVENT. JULIA ALSO ATTENDED THE EVENT WITH HER TD COWORKERS. THEY CLICKED EASILY AND BY THE END OF THE EVENING, JULIA’S COWORKERS SECRETLY GAVE HER BUSINESS CARD TO GREG WITH A WINK AND A NUDGE TO SET THEM UP. GREG DID NOT WANT TO MAKE THINGS AWKWARD WITH HER SO HE KEPT HER CARD BUT DID NOT CALL HER. A FEW MONTHS LATER THEY BUMPED INTO EACH OTHER ON THE STREET. INSPIRED BY THE SERENDIPITY, GREG DECIDED TO MESSAGE HER ON SOCIAL MEDIA. THEY FOUND OUT THEY HAD ATTENDED THE SAME HIGH SCHOOL, UNIVERSITY AND WORKED WITHIN TWO BLOCKS OF EACH OTHER FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS AND SHE IS ALSO THE YOUNGER SISTER OF A HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND. THIS MUST BE FATE! A YEAR LATER, THEIR STORY BEGAN WITH AN EARLY MORNING SUNRISE PHOTOSHOOT DATE AT JERICHO BEACH AND MANY ADVENTURES AFTER.

 

THE PROPOSAL

"They spent the night staring at the brightest stars they had ever seen!”

GREG HAD ALWAYS KNOWN OF JULIA’S LOVE OF TRAVELING AND PHOTOGRAPHY. ON THE FIRST NIGHT OF THEIR MUCH-ANTICIPATED TRIP TO MAUI, GREG WAS ABLE TO FIND A NICE SECLUDED BEACH ON THE SIDE OF A SMALL STREET THROUGH THE TREES. WHILE JULIA WAS TAKING IN THE STUNNING HAWAIIAN SUNSET, GREG HAD SET HIS CAMERA ON A TRIPOD BEHIND THEM.

GREG THEN TOOK OUT A CUSTOM-MADE COMIC BOOK THAT TOLD THEIR STORIES, GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND SHOWED JULIA THE RING HE WAS HIDING ALL ALONG. THE MAGICAL MOMENT WAS CAPTURED REMOTELY ON HIS CAMERA AND WAS WITNESSED BY WILD CHICKENS ALL AROUND THEM! TO TOP OFF THEIR EVENING, THEY SPENT THE NIGHT STARING AT THE BRIGHTEST STARS THEY HAD EVER SEEN ATOP THE SUMMIT OF HALEAKALA VOLCANO CRATER.

AFTER FIVE SUMMERS OF DATING, THEY DECIDED TO SAY YES TO FOREVER AND SHARE THE BEAUTIFUL SUMMER SUNSET WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AT BROCK HOUSE NEAR THAT VERY SAME BEACH WHERE IT ALL STARTED!
