A match made in heaven - this is how Marlie and Giuseppe describe their relationship, and after hearing a little more about their love story, I'd say I have to agree! These lovely people come from prominent, loving Italian families, and after meeting each other's families, they both realized that they were made for each other - they had found their forever.
In October 2017, Marlie and Giuseppe had their first date at the Streets of Woodfield Starbucks. These two clicked immediately as if they had known each other forever and talked for nearly five hours! So, of course, many more dates were to follow. On one fateful date, in November of 2017, Giuseppe picked Marlie for a fun night at Shedd Aquarium, followed by a yummy meal at Grand Lux Cafe (their FAVORITE restaurant!) As Giuseppe opened the car door for Marlie, she was surprised to find a beautiful bouquet of roses awaiting her, along with a sweet note asking her to be Giuseppe's girlfriend - and this is how their relationship officially began!
Fast forward, and Giuseppe surprised Marlie with yet another question, but this one was even more special than the previous one. Giuseppe took Marlie to the Shedd Aquarium, where they had their first date after officially becoming a couple! Next to the aquarium, he got down on one knee and asked her to be by his side forever (and Marlie said yes, of course)!
Between dinner, drinks, and movies - as long as these two are together, they enjoy whatever they may be doing. Marlie and Giuseppe love traveling together and have been to Mexico, Lake Geneva, and many locations in between! But, since downtown Chicago is one of Marlie's favorite places, we wanted to capture plenty of pictures there - and then we visited North Avenue Beach to capture some photos straight out of a movie!
After spending an afternoon capturing their chemistry and endless love for each other, I cannot wait to meet back up with them again for their wedding next July! It will be an absolute blast to capture this beautiful love on their special day and meet the fantastic families that these two come from! Until we meet again!
