Jennifer & Gregg in Oak Creek, CO
Jennifer and Gregg have Gregg's stepfather, Rick, to thank for their marriage. He worked with Jennifer and thought the two would make a nice pair, but it took him five years to introduce them. It clearly was a good match because it didn’t take nearly as long for Gregg to pop the question.
The Bride Jennifer Stewart, 37, director of regulatory affairs
The Groom Gregg Lulofs, 34, graphic design company owner
The Date July 5
While vacationing in Thailand a year into their relationship, the couple was strolling along a quiet beach at night. Just as Jennifer was thinking it couldn’t get any better, it did. "Gregg got down on one knee, pulled out the most beautiful ring I had ever seen and asked if I would marry him," she says. It turned out that Gregg had been planning the proposal for weeks, even though the couple never really talked about getting married. Gregg even hosted a secret dinner to reveal his plan to Jennifer’s family and friends! They planned the whole wedding, filled with Colorado details and stationery Gregg designed, in the last four months of their two-year engagement.
