Courtney + Bill
Although both Courtney and Bill attended Marquette University for undergrad, they didn’t meet until a year after graduation. Their extended group of friends got together for a night on the local pedal tavern (a bar crawl on a bicycle built for 15+ people). They had a great time singing all the 90s pop songs together! Bill liked that Courtney was one of the only girls in the group actually pedaling from one bar to the next. Courtney was surprised that he was friends with some of her friends but they had never met before that night.
It was nearly 6 months later when they officially started dating. Courtney was finishing her masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology in Chicago while Bill worked in Milwaukee.
Bill’s family take a vacation up to Minocqua, WI every summer. It was important to him to propose in a place that they could visit for years to come and remember the special moment.
