Stephanie & Scott in Chicago, IL

Stephanie never expected to meet her husband in law school, but on the very first day of orientation at DePaul Law School, she was pleasantly surprised to meet Scott. They had all of their classes together. The pair quickly became friends and began a relationship that lasted well beyond their law school days. The Bride Stephanie Butler, 30, attorney The Groom Scott Orzoff, 34, attorney The Date August 23 Five-and-a-half years after meeting, Stephanie was shocked when Scott called to tell her a limo would be coming to pick her up from work. When the limo arrived (without Scott in it) the driver handed her a dress to change into. The driver then took her to the Omni Hotel and she was directed to a suite where Scott was waiting to pop the question.
