Ed finally came around the next fall, and Ginny begged him to quote her favorite Romeo and Juliet line before their first kiss. “It took him 11 years to humor me,” she says. The Bride Ginny Branch, 25, a blogger, fashion illustrator and sales clerk The Groom Ed Stelling, 26, a recent law school graduate The Date May 30 Ed proposed on Valentine’s Day in Washington Square Park, leading with “If I profane with my unworthiest hand. This holy shrine …” And then he got down on one knee and offered her a ring.
