Tell us about the Groom Where you grew up went to school, where you work.

Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us the dirty Details.

We were set up on a blind date that took place among a group of friends. My mutual friend invited Justin and his friends to join her and my friends out. After the second group outting, we started to go on dates without them. We met during the month of May in 2006, and bonded over our love of sports and the Jersey shore. That summer we probably spent almost every weekend at the beach together.

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?,etc.

Justin knew when we visited Long Beach Island with my family after about three years of being together. He felt part of the family, and at that time, very settled and peaceful in his life after some hardship that preceded that year. I knew on the second group date, when he was patient with one of my more outgoing friend's. I like a man who's patient.

Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning?, how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)

Justin and I have a very interesting engagement story. We knew we wanted to get engaged around the time my sister and her now husband tied the knot. But we decided to wait after their wedding hype had passed. So, it was December 2012 when we went to Cape May New Jersey for a romantic weekend with the intention of finding a ring in an estate jewelry shop. We eneded up finding one, and it would remain in it's box until the following June, when Justin brought me to the same spot in Long Beach Island where he knew he wanted to be with me forever. He got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. It didn't come as a surprise because he took me to the same hotel we had stayed at when we first started to go down the shore together. Plus, I knew we had a ring picked out. He was nervous, but we both have said that the weekend in Cape May felt more like the weekend we got engaged. In fact, after we picked out a ring that month of December, we went to a local bar and had a glass of wine. We didn't even realize it was 11:30 in the morning!! The day in June was more of a formality. But it was the same month we decided to share the engagement with our friends and family. So we sort of had a nice secret between us for a few months. That was fun to share.

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.

Justin has said he loves that I'm smart and "on top of things", and my shared love for the ocean. I love how smart he is too, and how handy he seems to be, he can fix ANYTHING!

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

Justin is a baseball fantasy fanatic, and during the season, he is very often preoccupied with his score on a daily basis. He wouldn't deny that it even affects his mood on any given day, particularly when he is losing. Justin would say that I jump to conclusions and worry way too much and often. And I come up with ridiculous reasons for things that might not make sense to me, like the worst possible scenario.

Why did you pick your Wedding Venue, What Attracted you.

We had been at Seasons before, and we knew the food was very good. Plus, the way it looks had been renovated since we had been there. We also wanted a place that had an outdoor ceremony option available. And a place we could have the ceremony and reception at the same location. And a place very close to home.
