“The first summer we met we spent every day together. We got along so well, and everything felt so natural I knew this was the women that I would spend the rest of my life with.”
“I knew we were meant for each other when we both described what we wanted our lives to be like in the future. Fun, simple, and full of love to last a lifetime. Together we make the future come true.”
Clare & Ian met when they were fourteen- in the Leland Country Club’s Kitchen. “Seven years later we started to date, and then the rest was history. We always have kept the Leland Country Club as such a special place for us.”
From that first meeting when they were just young teenagers to maintaining a meaningful friendship and eventually dating, it was only a matter of time before Ian would pop the question. “The night started with dinner with two of our close friends at Poppycocks. After that we took the alley into Horizon books and walked to Amical for desert. When we got to Amical, I asked Clare if she wanted to go see the movie at the State Theater when she looked up at the marquee she saw ‘Clare Schaljo, Will you marry me?’ and immediately started crying. It was truly a magical night.”
Clare & Ian, you two are simply perfect for each other! Congrats on your engagement!
