In June 2008, Margaret “Margo” Marie Tennison and Curtis Anderson Bush met in Washington D.C. at a fundraising event for a mutual friend. He called her the next day to ask her out.
Two weeks after meeting, he brought her to dinner and then to a popular Georgetown bar. They dated for the next few years until Curtis finished his residency at Georgetown University while Margo worked in a political fundraising job. Curtis then moved to Greenville, South Carolina, for a sports medicine fellowship and Margo moved to Dallas, Texas. The two dated long distance until Curtis got a job in Forth Worth, Texas.
Memorial Day 2013, Curtis purchased a house and asked Margo to help him unload the remaining boxes. Afterward, they went out to the new patio. He told her that he had one last box for her to open, and when she turned around Curtis was down on one knee proposing.
After the reception, the newlyweds traveled to the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Hawaii for a week. The two are currently living in Forth Worth, Texas where he’s an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedic Specialty Associates and Margo is the marketing and communications manager for the Child Study Center.
