How We Met
The couple met in London at the O2 Arena. Zoe was visiting London as a celebratory trip for graduating high school, and Cort was there working. Zoe’s stepfather, Mark, had been working with Cort on the RHCP tour. When show day arrived, Mark insisted Zoe watch the show from front of house, which is also where Cort worked. The two didn’t speak very much, each being too shy to say anything, but during the opener’s song “Gimme Chocolate!!” Cort shared some chocolate with Zoe… and eventually, the rest was history!
How They Asked
Cort told Zoe they were going to Chicago for a business trip. While he did have clients in town, his morning meeting was actually to prepare the proposal. When he returned, he told Zoe it was time to go to brunch. At precisely 11 o’clock the two headed up the elevator to the LondonHouse Chicago’s rooftop restaurant. However, the two were escorted to a private cupola… and not brunch. There, Cort had flowers, champagne, and photographers ready to capture the moment. Then, Cort proposed to Zoe, and the best, celebrating with all of you, is yet to come.
