Brought together by the food of love itself: pizza, Hannah and Justin met as co-workers nine years ago. After much encouragement from friends and family, Hannah and Justin agreed to their first date. After Justin left Little Caesars for an internship at an engineering company, he knew Hannah was the one for him. “I knew there was no one else I wanted to share my life with than Hannah” he said. For Hannah, all it took was a few good “dad” jokes for her to be sure he was the one. “He will have had plenty of practice in by the time we are ready to have kids”. Their love only grew as time went on, and talk of getting married was stirring. “We had always talked about getting engaged after Justin finished school, so every trip we would take after his graduation I would get my hopes up that I might be getting a ring…but, this trip I was not expecting it to happen”.
On December 1, 2017 Justin and Hannah took a trip to Toronto for a long weekend. “I didn’t want Hannah to know the plan so I have been deflecting any engagement related talk for the weeks leading up to the trip to throw her off my scent. We drove the whole way to Toronto, about a 4 hour drive, without stopping once (I guess i must have been nervous or something)”. When the couple got to the hotel, Justin was nervous the secret would be out when they checked-in, as he had called to tell them about the proposal. But the front desk kept it quiet and the two headed to their room to get settled.
“We got up to our room which was on the 30 something floor, with a lovely view overlooking the city. We were looking at the view and I asked Justin what was wrong because I could feel his heart beating fast. He claimed that he was feeling afraid of heights from standing close to the window (the first time I heard this in 8 years haha). I went to freshen up and when I came back and sat on the bed Justin got down on one knee to ask me to marry him. I joked and told him no (had to make him sweat a little), then said, ‘of course I’ll marry you'”.
Hannah and Justin enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, picnics, and watching the cows together!
Congratulations Justin and Hannah!
