From the bride: “Jeff and I originally met through Tinder in September 2014. We did not realize right away how much we had in common, but it became quickly apparent that we were both giant nerds who both loved video games and board games. We also always wanted to play Dungeons and Dragons, and started our own group that regularly met to play early in 2015, something that has a special place in our hearts to this day.
We fell in love easily and quickly, and knew very early on in our relationship that we wanted to get married.
In July 2017, Jeff proposed on the last night of a family cruise to Bermuda. I am a very difficult person to surprise and he managed to pull it off. Through the engagement period, we built a house together, which was a lot to manage while simultaneously planning a wedding. Jeff and I faced these challenges with all of the grace we could muster, and we have learned that no matter what happens, we will always forgive, support, and love each other, through the highs and lows of our shared adventure.
We wrote our own vows, something I will always treasure and hold dear, and both ended our vows with the statement "I like you and I love you", which was a beautiful surprise on the day of the wedding.”
