"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale." Amanda and Julian met in New Haven, CT while both studying at Yale, Amanda for a master's degree as a nurse practitioner, and Julian for his MBA. Soon after meeting in January 2017, they both knew they had found something special and that their love for each other would last a lifetime. Julian proposed in May 2018, just before graduation, on Hillhouse Avenue, which Charles Dickens and Mark Twain both describe as the most beautiful street in America. After graduation, they took a couple of months off and traveled to London, Rome, Athens, and Santorini, before moving to Houston, TX, where they now live.
