As most rom-coms attest, Valentine’s Day can be a trying time for the single crowd. However for Courtney and Justin, the holiday provided the perfect meet-cute. Courtney and a friend set out for a night on the town, but after a few drinks, the two lost each other in the crowded bar. She was walking down the stairs in a frenzy when she passed a handsome man she couldn’t ignore. With her panic long forgotten, Courtney introduced herself. Needless to say, the rest was history.
In light of their festive beginnings, Justin planned out a surprise engagement on “Galentine’s Day,” the day before Valentine’s Day, two years later. Courtney had plans to join her sister and friends for a photo shoot at a friend’s apartment to celebrate. Little did she know, Justin was waiting at the shoot’s location on a balcony with nine dozen roses, champagne, and his heart on his sleeve. Courtney was stunned when she arrived, but she was more than ready to spend the rest of her life with the man of her dreams. After she said yes, the two were joined by the rest of her friends and family to commemorate their beautiful future union.
Courtney went to the University of North Texas and works as the senior marketing manager at Champion Management. Justin attended Texas A&M and works at Cypress Point Equity Partners. They will marry on February 25, 2017, at the City Club of Fort Worth.
