Jill & Nick in Ann Arbor, MI
When Jill first saw Nick in an anthropology class at the University of Michigan, she knew she had to meet him, so she got herself into his study group. Then, she asked him out; they’ve been together ever since.
The Bride Jill Boezwinkle, 29, public health
The Groom Nick Olson, 30, attorney
The Date June 20
When Nick was ready to propose seven years later, he knew Jill would want him to do it in private. He sent her on a spa day, and while she was out, he set a picture of the engagement ring he bought as the background on Jill’s laptop. When she got home, Jill kept walking by the computer screen without noticing the ring. Finally she spotted it, and Nick got down on one knee and proposed. They spent the next year-and-a-half planning a wedding at their alma mater with a subdued brown-and-ivory color palette and blue accents to nod to their Maize-and-Blue roots.
