Peter and Elena went to brother / sister high schools and shared a similar group of friends. It wasn’t until after college, however, that the two were re-introduced and got to know each other better. Their first real date was the Wisconsin (#18) vs. Ohio State (#1) football game in 2010. Elena needed a ticket, and Peter had an extra … they’ve been each other’s +1s ever since. Did we mention that Wisconsin won that game? On Wisconsin!
After almost 6 years of dating, Peter knew he had to be sneaky with his proposal. Long story short, he had Elena’s coworker back out of a reservation at L’Artusi (the couple’s favorite restaurant), offering it to Elena and Peter instead. As their cab pulled up to the restaurant, Alexandra Dieck (blogger and friend) was in the street shooting street style looks with two photographers. Distracted, Elena went to say hi while Peter collected his thoughts. Then, he grabbed Elena by the arm on the street outside the restaurant, kissed her hand, and got down on one knee. The photographers were a decoy, really there capture the entire proposal. After many tears and laughs (and a yes!), the couple went inside for their reservation. Little did Elena know, that there was one more surprise in store. Both families had traveled into town, and were waiting to celebrate the bride and groom to be!
