Jessica & Rob

How did you meet?

Rob and I met six years ago on an unseasonably warm evening in early March. A mutual friend made the introduction. I can still remember the exact outfits we both wore and the smile he had on his face when I opened up his car door and we locked eyes for the first time. So many thoughts were running through my mind. I was nervous. Did my hair look okay? Did I pick out the right dress? Are those flowers in the back for me? Indeed, they were. My nerves calmed down and suddenly I thought, I want to get to know him. Although we were strangers, I felt a sense of comfort and friendship. It was as if I knew him from a past life. That evening we dined at a waterfront restaurant on the Hudson overlooking New York City. We spent hours exchanging stories, laughing, eating, and just completely wrapped up in the moment. It's clear where our love story took us from there! We got engaged five years later in Paris, it was a dream of mine to visit France and it feels so special to remember this trip with our proposal. You can read the full proposal story here!  Our wedding day was filled with precious moments, but I would have to say the absolute best part was seeing Rob for the first time. We both bawled our eyes out!! The day could not have been more perfect and we felt so much love being surrounded by our closest friends and family.
