KEEP SCROLLING FOR MORE OF OUR STORY…
How they met…
We actually met back in third grade at Lodi Elementary. We started dating in the winter of our senior year.
This is a STORY! After we graduated high school, Dean went off to the University of Toledo and I attended Miami University in Oxford, OH. We continued dating and graduated in 2017. The following Spring, we planned a trip to Paris, France and Valencia, Spain to visit one of my best friends from college. I had an inkling that Dean was going to propose in my dream place – Paris, but had no hard evidence. The trip was a disaster! We were on our way to Paris, when we missed our second flight and had a layover in the airport for another six hours. We finally got onto the crammed flight and arrived in Paris after 24 hours of traveling, only to have Dean stopped at customs and taken to a questioning room. He had brought the wrong passport. When he first applied for his passport, it was lost in the mail. He reported it lost, to get a new one. Somehow, the new one and the old one showed up at his home around the same time frame – his mom took one passport and put it one safe and Dean took the other and put it in the other safe. There was a miscommunication and he brought the “lost” passport to Europe. After hours of waiting in customs in Paris, Dean was deported and I flew back to NYC with him.
Favorite wedding memory…
The feeling of having all of our family and friends in one place at a time is the most wonderful memory. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful support system than what we have!
