Josh and I met at Indiana University. We were both in the Marching Hundred there and basically fell for each other instantly! We have been together for 3 years now!

He proposed to me on May 9 this year. We went out to a fancy dinner with my family to celebrate me graduating college and to also celebrate my birthday coming a few days later. He gave me an early birthday present which was a photo collage of a bunch of our favorite pictures together. Each picture was covered up with a sweet love note and the last picture in the frame had a hand drawn picture of him proposing. When I looked over, he was down on one knee with the ring! After the engagement, the restaurant brought out champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. It was very sweet!

Josh was the one who picked out the engagement ring. I had given him plenty of “hints” about what kind of ring I wanted. I have always been drawn to colored rings, especially blush colored. He picked out my amazing rose gold ring with a morganite stone and I absolutely love it!

We are getting married in April of 2016 in Columbus, IN which is my hometown. We will be having a very romantic, intimate feel to our wedding with lots of soft colors and other personal touches.

To sum the day up in one word: perfection. I would be lying if I said everything came together seamlessly during the planning process, but I’m confident to say that all of the preparing and planning paid off in the end as everything just fell into the place the day of. We scoured over different venues around Indianapolis and new we wanted something different yet still classic and within our style, so the Indianapolis Artsgarden just kind of fell into our lap. The space was ideal for the size of our wedding guests and the view through their giant glass windows that looked out into the heart of downtown were how we knew this was ‘The One’. I consider myself to be a very minimalistic person who likes to keep things as simple as possible, and it was just perfect how the Artsgarden basically decorated itself. I really didn’t have to add much to it!

I had so many favorite moments that day, I’ll share three. The first of course was when I was walking down the aisle, and my gaze was on Sam the entire time. I didn’t look at anyone else, I didn’t want to psych myself out by thinking about who was in the crowd. I honestly felt like it was just Sam and me in the room. My second favorite moment was soon after Sam and I walked down the aisle concluding the ceremony. We walked straight upstairs to the balcony where the bar was, I kicked my heels off in front of the bartenders and they laughed and immediately handed me a drink. There were no words needed. My last favorite moment was my dance with my grandfather. He was so nervous being up in front of a whole crowd of people who were only looking at the two of us, and we exchanged a very intimate conversation which was a first and something I will never forget.

Funniest moment was while we were dancing and our 5yo ring bearer starts tearing up the dance floor with his break dancing moves. His parents told us later that they have no idea where their kid learned to breakdance as neither of them ever taught him!

Our first dance song was “Meant To Be” by Melissa Polinar. She’s a popular Youtube artist who I introduced to Sam when we first started dating and it’s been our number one favorite song ever since. Sam danced with his mother to Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me” and I with my grandfather to Lennon & Maisy’s “A Life That’s Good.”

Stephanie and Ryan’s Summer Downtown Chicago Engagement Photography Session

Q+A with Stephanie and Ryan:

In the summer of 2013 I had just graduated from Indiana University, moved to Chicago, and started my job at Coyote Logistics. Part of the training program at Coyote involves sitting with a different rep each day.

On July 5th I was assigned to sit with Ryan Campbell.  I was immediately blown away by Ryan’s intensity and drive- and how fast he spoke! I’m usually an avid note taker but was only able to jot down a couple of his pointers.

A few weeks (and a few declined invitations) later the Tigers were playing the Red Sox in the American League championship. The game was on during my birthday party in my apartment. Knowing what I know now about Ryan’s superstition with any important sporting event, it’s surprising that he watched the game away from home!

After the Red Sox won, I told Ryan that I would go on a first date with him…. if the Red Sox won the World Series. We watched every game in the series together and they won the championship in Game Six.

I had been planning our proposal for quite some time.  I was so anxious and that day seemed to drag on forever!  Luckily one of Stephanie‘s best friends was coming in town that weekend already for a girls’ weekend so I recruited her to help with the plans.  I chose to surprise Stephanie at Drumbar. It’s one of our favorite bars in Chicago and has a little private nook in the back of the bar which I thought was a perfect place to pop the question.  Stephanie thought she was heading out for drinks before dinner with her girlfriend, and there I was waiting for her.  She was quite confused when she saw me but everything became much more clear as she approached and I got down on one knee and asked her to be mine for the rest of my life.  She said yes and made me the happiest man in the world.

Ryan designed the ring based on what I said I liked. He actually had the jeweler send him some plastic 3D molds until he was happy with it!
We are planning our wedding next July in Indianapolis. The ceremony will be at St. John’s and the reception will be at Crowne Plaza Union Station. We fell in love with the ballroom and can’t wait to celebrate with family and friends!
