Joe and Christie’s story is “love at first sight.” One night, Christie went out with her neighbor, Brittany, while they were sitting at the table Joe walked up and introduced himself, “Hi I’m Joe!” They immediately clicked and had a lot in common. Little did Christie know, Joe had just asked Brittany the night before to set him up with a nice girl. After dancing and hanging out all night, that was it! They did everything together, and 6 months later they got a chocolate lab puppy named Boost and moved into a townhouse together. 2 years later, after a fun-filled day walking around downtown Chicago, Joe got down on one knee and asked Christie to be his wife surrounded by their families and friends at Navy Pier.
Christie’s parents own a home in Marco Island, so they decided that that would be they perfect place for their nuptials. On October 30, 2014 in front of 75 closest family and friends, Joe and Christie became man and wife!
