In the fall of 2015, Abby caught Jonathan's attention one night as he turned to social media to pass the time, stumbling upon a group photo posted by a mutual friend, Doris Muntean ("The Matchmaker"). In that photo, second from the left to be exact, stood Abby. Smitten by her beauty, Jonathan immediately reached out to Doris to inquire about Abby's relationship status. After a few months of persistence, Abby agreed to meet, and they went on their first date at the J-Parker rooftop in Chicago. Although during the date Abby seemed to be more interested in the Thursday Night Football Green Bay Packers game, she was instantly infatuated by Jonathan’s charismatic personality and piercing blue eyes. There was an immediate connection. Bonding over french fries and wine, the two discussed their favorite travel destinations, sports, finance and family. After the date, Jonathan memorably called his sister to tell her he had met his future wife. Abby had never met such a gentleman and she knew he was too good of a guy to pass up!
Three years later, on November 16, 2018, Jonathan planned a perfect proposal at the Adler Planetarium, Abby’s favorite view in Chicago. Abby and Jonathan, for lack of better words, are the epitome of “two peas in a pod.” Where one is, expect to find the other not far away!
