Bawden-Goldstein Engagement

Elizabeth Erin Bawden and Marc D. Goldstein

Elizabeth Erin Bawden, daughter of Stephen and Michelle Bawden of Chesterfield, and Marc D. Goldstein, son of Robert and Susan Goldstein of Clayton, have announced their engagement. 

The bride-to-be earned a bachelor of science degree in education from Indiana University. She is currently developmental editor at Elsevier, Inc. 

Her fiancé earned his juris doctor degree from Washington University School of Law and his bachelor of arts degree in psychology and history from New York University. He is currently an attorney at Polsinelli.  

The bride said the couple’s families grew up together, so they knew each other their whole lives, but started spending lots of time together after they both moved back to St. Louis after college and careers out of state.  Marc took Libby on a romantic trip to Paris and surprised her by taking her to look at engagement rings. After they chose a style, he had the ring made by a family friend who had made the engagement rings for both of their mothers. 

When the ring arrived, Marc took Libby’s Dad out to ask for his permission. The next Saturday, Marc took Libby out for a romantic evening and proposed at the location of their first date. They were so excited to call their parents who were on vacation together and share the great news. A December, 2013 wedding is planned.
