Tell us how you met and fell in love!

On a Sunday night in December, I was watching Star Trek when a knock on my door startled me. I wasn’t expecting anyone over, and the quadplex I lived in had a locked door on the outside. I answered, and it was my downstairs neighbor, whom I had noticed before because she’s incredibly cute and has cool tattoos. She said she had an extra ticket to the ballet and asked if me or my roommate wanted to go with her. I was the only one home, and I wasn’t doing anything better, so I went. Two years later we got married.

Was there a proposal? Tell us about it!

We both proposed to each other. I did it first on New Years Eve, which is the anniversary of our first real date. As far as she knew, that’s what we were doing, but when I stopped outside of the place where we saw that first ballet, I think it tipped her off. It was freezing and extremely windy, but we got outside and I asked her to marry me. She said yes, and we celebrated with a donut.

She proposed to me the morning after I got laid off from my job. She was off work that day, so I got up to make us breakfast (read: to feel useful and contribute to our household since I wasn’t going to work that day). As soon as I plated it all up, I turned around and she had a ring in her hand and asked me to marry her too.

Are you planning your wedding right away or giving yourself some time to just be engaged?

We started planning pretty quickly because we got engaged in January and wanted a September wedding. Specifically, with the venue, we had to jump into gear. The truth is, we got the best of both worlds because my mom (with help from her friends) did almost all of the planning and my wife’s mom did all the food, so we got to enjoy being engaged because they took care of us.

What’s the best thing you’ve learned from your spouse-to-be?

My partner is a bleeding heart. She feels so hard, so much that sometimes it’s too much for her to bear. I learned that about her, and saw that it was genuine, about a month in, and I was sure that we would be together for a long time.

What’s your favorite part of your relationship?

The ability to do nothing together is something we both value. Sure, it’s great to be with someone that you can have a good time with, but what about when you’re too tired to have fun and just want to read a book? Because we both put a lot into our work, that quality is essential and we both cherish it.

and shivering from passion,

you left me worn out."

Tell us your love story!

Dennis and I (Jeffery) met on an online dating app. New Years Day 2018. Dennis reached out to me with a simple text. He had checked me out on social media and I must have peaked his interest. Chatting lead to texting lead to calling. (He has such a sexy deep voice) With nothing to lose for both of us we decided to go out on a first date. I walked in and saw such a handsome man waiting for me. We instantly hit it off. We have so much in common it was almost scary. The questions all night was like a job interview. We later laughed how we were lobbing questions back and fourth for almost 4 hours. I guess both of us have had our fair share of failed expectations in past relationships. We ended the night with a sweet kiss and a promise to see each other again. Again we did, going on dates and weekend get aways. Things moved quickly because we both knew what we were looking for. It wasn’t long before we were ready to say the “L” word in front of each other.

What about the proposal?

One weekend in late summer while away in Toronto and having lunch at a beautiful out door patio we were having a conversation about the future of “US”. Together we decided it was time for us to take the next step. The proposal was not as flourish as others but it was perfectly us.

When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?

From the time that we met we both had a strong feeling that we were a really good match for each other. It really was not long that we both agreed that a tremendous amount of boxes were checked off on our wish lists.

What about The Big Day!

The wedding planning was very easy for us. Originally we had a trip booked in the fall to Paris. We thought that would be a great place to be married. However, you have to be a resident for three months prior to a ceremony. So what is the second most beautiful and romantic city in the world? NEW YORK! We were fast to find Nicki Feitzer a fabulous New York City elopement photographer that offered so much information and resources. We were very lucky to be in contact with her. We decided on a sunrise ceremony at the Brooklyn Bridge and by 9:00 am we were in a little diner in Brooklyn Heights with a grin from ear to ear.

Any advice for other couples planning their weddings/elopements right now?

Our advice for couples planning a wedding now would be to take the pressure off of yourselves and just elope. Often times we lose the fact that getting married to the person of your dreams does not have to involve all of your family and friends. It truly is about the love of two people. When we came home we threw a surprise reception for 30 people at a local restaurant. The looks on everyone’s faces were priceless. The only people who knew in advance were our immediate family members. 

What was the best part of your day?

We have loved each other more everyday since we tied the knot, somehow we are more confident and settled. Getting married was the best decision we ever made and having an Elopement in New York was so memorable and romantic.
