Have you ever met a couple and thought, “Wow, they were so cool!”. That’s pretty normal, right? Cool people with interesting stories? Well, have you ever met a couple and thought, “Wow, they’re like, a whole new level of cool. I’m not sure I’m cool enough to merit their friendship!” Yep. That’s Jonathan and Liz. A whole new level of cool. And what a pleasure to spend an evening with these two! During our brief time together, they had me completely enamored with their fascinating career stories, which include but are not limited to working at the White House, and writing ads that many of us have heard and seen. And I was melted by their perfectly epic dating stories that culminated with a helicopter-rooftop proposal! They are an adventurous powerhouse couple, to say the least!
AND, to top it all off, they are also the most kind, humble and hospitable people I’ve had the pleasure of sharing a table with. Their heart for the orphan, their work with foster kids, their love for the outcast – it’s truly a humbling experience to witness all of these incredible attributes in one beautiful couple.
Jonathan and Liz have called St. Louis home for the duration of their relationship, and now they are about to embark on a new adventure, relocating to Atlanta and pursuing adoption. It will be hard to see them go, but what a blessing they will surely be to the people they encounter in this next chapter. The little one who will some day call them Mom and Dad has already hit the parental jackpot!
I’m so grateful I got to spend an evening with this beautiful couple, capturing some sweet moments between them at a couple of their favorite St. Louis locations. I don’t think Central Library has ever encountered a better dressed couple! Liz and Jonathan, I wish you all the best in this next chapter, which no doubt will rival your first chapters in beauty and sweetness. You’ll be deeply missed, but I know exciting things lay ahead for your and your family!
