Wedding Date on Oct 4, 2019

"Food is the Ingredient that Binds Us Together." This quote could not ring any truer for Grace and Steve. Grace's love for coffee and bagels (and a tragic fall of cupcakes) ultimately led her to find her everything bagel. Two years ago, Steve and Grace first met on the dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB). Steve took it upon himself to chat with Grace via the app for approximately... wait for it... THIRTY [clap] DAYS [clap]. It is customary for a guy to ask a girl out via a dating app within 2-3 days of texting. The CMB app actually cancels your chatroom after 7 days, unless you opt to extend the chat. Steve extended that chat. And Grace was confused. You see, at this point in time, Grace's M.O. was to dive back into the dating scene and find a guy to do three things: 1) Buy her sushi; 2) tell her she's pretty; and 3) laugh at her jokes. After those 3 marks were achieved, she would move on to the next bagel. Steve finally paused their modern day pen-pal conversations and asked Grace out on a date to meet face-to-face. Steve was extremely nervous during their date. Even more so after he realized the heel of his shoe fell off during the middle of dinner. Steve spoke about 3 sentences the entire night so he thought he would never hear from Grace again. Until Sammie pulled through and saved the relationship. (Sammie is a 5lb. Pomeranian.) What many people do not know is that Grace was planning on bringing extra cupcakes to the date but forgot to bring them. After the date ended, Grace walked into her apartment and Sammie was nowhere to be found. But in her direct line of sight from the doorway, she saw the box of cupcakes, upside-down, on the floor. She immediately realized why Sammie was in hiding. Sammie somehow McGyvered his way onto the kitchen table and pushed the box of cupcakes off with this little paws. I imagine it was done in a cat-like fashion we've all seen in many gif's. The scene was so comical/frustrating that Grace sent a photo to Steve. That exact photo is here on this page. And in that moment, their modern day pen-pal relationship continued. This was still done via the dating app because Steve never asked for her number at dinner. To this day, Steve tells Grace that Sammie saved their relationship. From there, a second date, third date, and two years of laughter brought them here today. All because of coffee, bagels, and fallen cupcakes.
