This is real life, and there is nothing more that we love at

IJL Select than having a hand in a good love story.

Kristin and Kyle


January,  30th 2018

IJL:  When did you know he was the one for you?

Kristin: I think we both knew instantly, but tried to be rationale because that sounds crazy. Each week that passed I was still convinced he was the one. Both of us were thinking, this is too good to be true, when is this going to go south, but it never did.

IJL:  How did he propose?

Kristin: We were on a vacation with my family in Turks & Caicos and we were walking the beach for sunset with my whole family. He started to act a bit strange and wanted to take lots of pictures, I started to suspect something but then it didn't happen. Everyone was trying to snap all sorts of pictures and it was a bit hectic. We ended up walking back to our house and he asked my brother and sister to take one more picture of us out by the pool that overlooked the ocean. He got down on one knee and said he had wanted to do this since he met me. My family started pouring out of the house when they realized what was going on. It was so perfect. We had family with us and were in the most beautiful place. It was like a fairy tale come true.

Jamie and Kim


December,  18th 2018

IJL:  When did you know she was the one for you?

Jamie:  3 months into dating on Thanksgiving, we were with each of our own families and we both really missed each other. It just didn't feel right to not be with her for the holiday, and that was when I knew for sure that she was the right one.

IJL:  How did you propose?

Jamie: We had tickets to A Christmas Carol at the Guthrie. I had it planned to take her out to the Endless Bridge before the show where I had my best friend hiding there to take pictures. I told Kim "I didn't actually get a ticket for my girlfriend... I got one for my fiancee." I then got down on one knee and said "Will you marry me?" She said yes right away! I am so lucky to have had IJL help me meet the perfect girl.

Christy and Greg

Will be married on

August,  17th 2019

IJL:  When did you know he was the one for you?

Christy: I spend a lot of time away from home for the military. In previous relationships, I couldn't wait to leave for military training and just get away. After I met Greg, every minute I spent away at training felt like an eternity.


IJL:  How did he propose?

Christy: It was Christmas Day. I had a feeling for months that he was planning it. We were at his family's house. After opening all our gifts, he handed me another bag and said he had one last present for me. In the bag was a clue which was the beginning of a scavenger hunt. The clues led me all around the house and at the end you had to assemble all the clues together in a puzzle. On the back of the puzzle was a poem. The poem led me to look under the Christmas tree where there was another poem. I read the poem out loud that Greg had written. In the poem he described how he fell in love with me and when it was over I looked up and he was on one knee and he asked me to marry him.

It's private. It's real. It's personal. It's convenient.
