Jessica and Chris
How We Met
Chris and I met in our early teens, both growing up in Somerville, MA. The first time we met, my cousin Steven (one of his good friends) brought him to my house so they could ‘crash’ our volleyball pasta party and get some food (Steven knows my mom is a great cook)! We didn’t start dating until after high school, but, while we were both way too shy to admit it, were basically in love with each other throughout high school. We finally started dating the summer of 2011 (approaching 7 years ago!) and the rest is history.
How He Asked
The Story: We lined up for the bouquet toss, and right when my sister Christina was about to throw the bouquet, she paused and said, “Wait, Jessica come here.” I walked away from the crowd to the center of the dance floor where she was, expecting her to ask me to help her fix her dress or something. Then she said, “These are actually for you” and held the bouquet out for me. I reached for it confused, then turned around and Chris was behind me on one knee. Chris (and Christina and Nate!) had been planning this for almost a year. They knew it would be a time when I definitely wouldn’t be expecting it..they were right. Am I lucky, or am I lucky?
