Jamie & Jake's Story


First Date

Jake and Jamie met in January of 2011 over beers and trivia at Galway Arms in Lincoln Park. With a trivia team name that evolved from "Awkward First Date" to a mutually proclaimed "best first date ever", they clicked right away (despite Jake's unsuccessful efforts to convince Jamie to join him in a game of "Big Buck Hunter").  


Life Together

 After dating for 2 years and spending almost every day together, they moved into their Ravenswood apartment in 2013. Jamie officially adopted Jake's Man Cat, Owen, anD SHe has been wrapped around his furry little paw ever since.


The Proposal

Jake and Jamie had tickets to see their favorite female singer, St. Vincent. Jamie picked Jake up at the brewery after work and drove to Longman & Eagle for dinner before the show. Little did Jamie know that Jake had booked a room at the inn above the restaurant. Jake revealed the surprise with flowers and champagne in the room and popped the question. The night continued with a champagne toast,  personalized menus at the restaurant and an amazing show at the iconic Chicago Theater.
