Real Engagement: Stephanie & Warren
Stephanie & Warren’s adventurous souls met in college at the Bush School of Government at Texas A&M in 2012. Warren, who grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, has a unique sense of humor, often starting jokes with the punchline. Stephanie, who grew up in Coppell, Texas shows her sweet side as owner of Blonde Bakes in New York City.
Stephanie & Warren’s Love & Engagement Story
They both share a passion for traveling and dancing! This eclectic couple currently resides in New York City, and when they’re not travelling or planning to change the world, they enjoy new restaurants, exploring the Big Apple, and making memories together.
According to Stephanie, love didn’t come instantly. She admits there was that awkward “is this more than friends” stage that lasted for month, but over sandwiches one day, Warren expressed his feeling for her and their adventure together began. (Hmm, wasn’t this love of sandwiches portrayed in Frozen with Princess Anna?)
Warren’s version is a bit different. He knew early on that there was something incredibly special about Stephanie. After Salsa dancing and “cooking” for her (aka ordering a pizza but serving it like he made it) during their courtship, he realized that Stephanie was one of the most amazing women he’s ever met. Warren took a leap and prepared a Spaghetti Bolognese that won first prize… Stephanie’s heart!
One and a half years of long-distance dating allowed their connection to blossom. On a December day at the Bush Library pond, and with both of their families hiding in bushes and taking pictures, Warren asked Stephanie to be his wife.
Stephanie & Warren will marry on October 28, 2016 with 120 of their world-traveling guests. There will be warm emotions, electric energy, delicious food, vibrant African fabrics, live musicians, sweets by the bride-to-be, and an evening of fun and dancing under the stars!
Congratulations, and welcome to the #SensiblyChicTRIBE!
