Share Your Story :

We were at a birthday party for a mutual friend at The Pub/Panini's in Belden Village and we were introduced to each other. Eric asked Julie to dance, and the rest is history.

The Proposal:

Eric made a scavenger hunt for Julie that included finding a menu for Panini's (place where we first met), the movie Unstoppable (first official date), and Olive Garden salad dressing (first dinner date), among others things. At the end of the scavenger hunt, Eric was down on a knee asking Julie to marry him.

Where are you now?:

Eric works at Diebold Nixdorf as a Sales Performance Analyst. Julie works at New Philadelphia High School as an Intervention Specialist. We have a boy named Benjamin and a girl named Madison. We also have a dog named Bosa. We currently live Canton.
