Our Story

On August 4th, 2017, during Lollapalooza weekend, Majid Jordan hosted an after-party at Shay Nightclub in Chicago. Genesis was visiting Chicago with two of her best friends when Mike noticed a beautiful girl in a red dress and braids across the room as she walked into Shay. From the moment he locked eyes with her to say hello, he knew there was something special. On the last night of Genesis' visit to town, she and Mike, along with their friends, spent time together exploring Chicago, and they haven't stopped talking since then. Genesis resided in Miami while Mike lived in Chicago. A couple of weeks after their initial meeting, Mike invited Genesis back to Chicago for a weekend, and it turned out to be the best date Genesis had ever experienced. The rest, as they say, is history.

Genesis and Mike embarked on a two-year long-distance relationship, putting in their best efforts to make it work. They would meet in different places when Mike traveled for work, with Genesis visiting Chicago or Mike going to Miami. As time went on, bidding farewell became increasingly difficult. In 2019, Genesis made the decision to move to Chicago, making it her second home. Since then, their family has grown, and they now have a beautiful three-year-old Mini Goldendoodle named Melody Luna. Genesis and Mike share a passion for traveling, music, food, and new experiences. They also have a unique blend of cultures, with Genesis being Nicaraguan and Cuban, while Mike has Irish and Italian heritage. Initially, there was a language barrier between Mike and Genesis's family, who primarily spoke Spanish. However, they are proud to say that they have overcome this challenge, and now communicate very well with each other, despite not being fluent in each other's native languages.

In August 2022, Genesis and Mike took a trip to their favorite vacation spot, Excellence Playa Mujeres in Mexico. On August 4th, which marked their five-year anniversary since meeting, Mike proposed to Genesis on the beach—the same beach where they will celebrate their eternal union on February 24, 2024.

Genesis and Mike are overjoyed and thrilled to have you be a part of this next chapter in their lives!
