Michael shared a couple of photos on October 14, including one dressy shot with his fiancée, and another with "the whole crew" in Emily’s home state of Wisconsin, where the party took place. She tweeted on October 13, "Thank you to our loving family friends for a perfect couples shower in Neenah @ Neenah, WI." Unfortunately they had to leave behind their adorable “daughter,” Chloe, the world's cutest dog.
We still don't know exactly when Stag and Emily are getting married, unless they stick with their plans from back in February. Back then, Michael told Fashion Ecstasy, "We met Memorial Day of 2012 and I think we're going to try to get married Memorial Day 2014 — in Chicago." His twin brother Stephen will probably be best man and it seems likely that Season 4 Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas Stagliano will be one of Em's bridesmaids, since the fam has gotten so close.
To us, it seemed like their relationship happened pretty fast, since we had just seen Michael with Rachel Truehart on Bachelor Pad Season 3. But when you know, you know. This past January, less than a month before his proposal, Stag told Wetpaint Entertainment of Emily, "She’s the best thing that ever happened in my whole life." (Swoon.)
He also explained how they met. "I played a show in Chicago [where Emily was living] and she had some friends who brought her along, and I had all my friends there, and when I got done playing my set they had all met up and she just came up right to me and said, 'Hey, do you want to get drinks with me afterwards?' And there was just something about her right away that I loved so I said yeah, and then I went down to a wedding the next day further down in Illinois and I came back up the following day and I was like, ‘I would just love to see you again’ so we hung out and that was the start of things."
And the love story is still going strong! We can’t wait to hear more about the wedding — and then maybe see if they can give Chloe a sibling and a little cousin for DeAnna and Stephen’s baby?
