Our Story


from starbucks to inseperable

Jesse and I met at a Starbucks on a Wednesday afternoon in March of 2020. I bought a whole brand new outfit to meet him because I knew life was going to be different. I walked in and he smiled and we started talking. He was wearing a flannel and joked about his “first date outfit”..little did we know that outfit was retired that day. And so our journey begins..

Emily and I were immediately inseparable. Which made the distance between us interesting. Every night one of us would drive one hour to be with the other…even if we had to work at 4am the next day. After just a few months of dating, we decided to take the leap and move in with each other. It was a leap we never would regret.

pandemic dates

As soon as Jesse and I shared a home, our love grew. We knew we would end up together. Pandemic couples really have to get creative with date nights! Our first home together wasn’t perfect, but it was ours. It was the place we learned each other’s favorite food, Maestro’s obsession with me, binge watched several shows, and on a cold December day GOT ENGAGED! It finally came time when we outgrew the house and started looking for our first home to buy.

a home, a pup, and a wedding

Fast forward to today, we’ve purchased our home and added our pup, Millie to the mix with Margaux and Maestro (our cats).
We are so excited to continue writing our story with our friends and family..just like it all started on a Wednesday afternoon as we become man and wife.
