Casey Spruill and Stonish Pierce Jr.

Venue: Sierra La Verne Country Club in La Verne, CA
Honeymoon: Negril, Jamaica
Home: Chicago, IL

• Casey is a PhD student at Northwestern University. Stonish is a health care executive at Presence Health. Although both attended the University of Southern California for undergrad and graduate studies, they met for the first time at a mutual friend’s party, post-college. A courtship quickly ensued and two years later, when  Stonish left sunny California to join Casey in the Windy City, she knew this man was the one. He only waited a few months to validate her belief with a proposal.

He knew he was in love when…

He met Casey for the first time in a white dress.

She knew she was in love when…

Stonish was willing to move to Chicago and support her so she could pursue her PhD at Northwestern.

In 10 years we will be…

Raising a family and progressing in our careers. Stonish plans to be a hospital CEO and Casey a professor.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

He would need to get rid of his black leather couch.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

Getting rid of her husband’s bachelor furniture is easier said than done!

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Marathon training together on the Chicago Lakefront Trail.

Our nicknames for each other are…

Stonish’s nickname is “Kenyan” because he is a fast long distance runner like a Kenyan. Casey’s nickname is “Daughter of a Jedi” because her father, a huge Star Wars fan, refers to himself as a Jedi.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

At home with Chicago deep dish pizza watching “Law and Order.”

Our song is…

“Rock with You” by Michael Jackson. It was the wedding song for our first dance.

Our perfect date night is…

Catching a comedy show and dinner on Rush Street in downtown Chicago.
