Julianne and Justin met while they were both undergraduates at Cornell University. While most of Julianne’s friends were abroad the second semester of her junior year, she was unable to go since she was in the engineering school. During that semester, her sorority hosted a dated wine tour. Julianne asked another girl in her house if her boyfriend knew anyone who would be willing to go with her “as a friend.” After being presented with several choices, Julianne chose Justin because he was “the least weird.”
They both realized immediately that the chemistry between them was palpable. Their comfort level was striking, especially for two people who had barely spoken prior to that point. As Julianne likes to say, from the very beginning, things with Justin were always so “effortless.”
Fast forward four years, and Justin was ready to pop the big question. After spending a summer working at a law firm, he knew had the perfect cover to lure Julianne to the perfect proposal place. He told Julianne that the firm was hosting an event for new associates at the top of the Empire State Building. After heading up to the 102nd floor and Justin suspiciously refusing Julianne’s offer to hold his jacket (something that was very much unusual), Justin turned to Julianne and explained the commitment he was prepared to make. As he descended to one knee, tourists from all over the world hurried over to take pictures. Although Julianne never actually said “Yes,” her eyes and her tears made her response crystal clear. After enjoying a few minutes together soaking in the moment and soaking in the views, the newly engaged couple returned to the ground floor and hopped in a cab back to their apartment so that they could call their family and friends. Little did Julianne know that the surprises weren’t yet finished. When she arrived at their apartment, a party greeted her where all of her friends and family were waiting to congratulate the couple.
