Traverse City Winter Engagement | Elisa + Joe | By Anna

Elisa & Joe are lawyers. Who met and fell in love in law school. “I always knew Joe had a different place in my life than anyone else, but I was very cautious about making any commitment to him. I wouldn’t even let him RSVP me as his date to a wedding because I thought that was too much of a commitment for me to stick around when the wedding was a month away! However, after almost a year of dating, I graduated law school and had to decide what state I was going to take my bar exam in. Whatever state I chose was the state I would have to move to immediately. Joe was taking his bar exam in Michigan, and I always thought I was going to take the bar exam in Tennessee, but when it came down to make the decision, the only thing I wanted was to stay with Joe. It was the first time I realized I wanted to marry him.”

“I knew we were meant for each other when I realized that whenever we were apart, I was thinking of her and missing her, and when we are together, I could sit there for hours and spend time with her, regardless of what we were doing. Elisa is an amazing woman who fills my life with love and happiness and the moment I realized that I did not want to spend another day without her in it is when I knew that we were meant for each other.”

After Elisa & Joe both realized how deeply they cared for and loved each other, it was only a matter of time before Joe popped the big question. “One of the things that we enjoy doing is going wine tasting on the peninsula. It was Joe’s birthday and we were celebrating by spending the day traveling around Traverse City and visiting different places. The first stop of the day was Chateau Chantel, which is almost always a stop when we go up on the peninsula. After tasting a few different wines, Joe asked the bartender to take a picture with the fall colors in the background. As the bartender was preparing to take the picture, Joe took the ring out of his pocket and got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I was taken a little off guard, but after the initial shock wore off, I said yes.”

Elisa & Joe, your story and love is beautiful. Congratulations!
