Kristen and Andy
We met in first grade in elementary school in Schaumburg, IL. We grew up together through elementary, junior high, and high school becoming closer and closer friends throughout the many years. Finally, senior year of high school, we attended homecoming and prom together. At the end of our senior year, we became an official couple on May 25, 2009. We spent our first year of college apart, Andy at Illinois State University, and Kristen at University of Iowa. Kristen transferred to Illinois State University for the remaining three years. After graduating from ISU, we both moved back to Schaumburg and started working. After almost exactly eight years together, on May 20, 2017, Andy proposed in the rose petal and candle covered gazebo in Schaumburg and gave me the happiest moment of my life. We were so excited to start the rest of our lives on July 14, 2018! We had our ceremony in Schaumburg and our reception in Itasca, IL. The day started with some rain but turned into the most beautiful day we could ask for.
