Mo and Julie // Chicago Weddings

How they met: We met 2007 working at American Eagle; I used to be her assistant manager.  I guess you could say that love unfolded at the folding table (just kidding.) We didn't pursue each other at first for two main reasons. One, I was her manager, and two, she was going away to college. At the time I didn't want to pursue a long distance relationship. But there was always a spark between us. Let's face it-- she's smart, charming, beautiful and athletic. Who doesn't want that in a partner? You have to be naive to let this gem pass by, and at the time, I was. So we both went our own ways, but in the back of my mind I always had that what if thought... What was I thinking letting the opportunity pass by? Fast forward a year later and we had both gotten out of bad relationships. I had started a new job, and decided it was time to give it a shot. In 2008 I asked her to be my girlfriend, and now, 8 years later, she's my wife. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. She is the moon to my sky.
