MEET OUR COUPLES! | Jeanette + Dan

We are so excited to work with the most amazing Jeanette and Dan for their dreamy sunflower garden wedding next August at the Olbrich Gardens. Here we touched base with them about their love story and their excitement for their future plans.

 

HOW THEY MET: 

We both came to Madison, Wisconsin to study and both enjoyed the city enough to stay. Lucky we did, because we met each other at a party thrown by our mutual friend (and Jeanette's maid of honor!) Grace Christensen back in 2013. Later that summer we went out on one of the most stereotypical dates possible (and also the only kind I (Dan) could think of at the time), dinner and a movie. :-) Even though we both had to request forks to eat our sushi (haha!), our burgeoning connection and shared sense of humor led to a wonderful evening!

 

HOW THEY GOT ENGAGED: 

On March 20th of 2016, on the first day of spring, I (Dan) asked Jeanette if she wanted to go on a walk into the UW-Arboretum near our house.  It was fairly overcast that day, and still a bit cold, but luckily she agreed.  Despite Jeanette asking if we might want to turn around and head back home to avoid the muddy path, I pushed for us to persevere. We went out to a wooden walkway over the lake, and I got down on one knee and proposed!  

I (Jeanette) was surprised and elated, and immediately said yes! I’m still so glad Dan subtly insisted we continue on the walk to the arboretum that day :)

 

WHAT THEY LOOK FORWARD TO MOST ON THEIR WEDDING DAY: 

A chance to celebrate our marriage with all of our family, friends and loved ones!  We hope for everyone to have a relaxing and fun time and to celebrate with good food and tasty drinks at a beautiful botanical garden. 

 

WHAT THEY LOOK FORWARD TO ABOUT MARRIED LIFE:  

We're looking forward to spending a lifetime together learning, growing, building a family and having fun.  We're looking forward to more time spent with friends and family, and more inside jokes that we know can make the other laugh.  We're looking forward to helping and supporting each other as we start a new life as a married couple.
