Wedding Date on Jul 17, 2016

From The Bride: This excerpt is from the groom on how we met: "Old souls can meet in modern ways; we are a living success story of that. In the Spring of 2011 after a particularly brutal New Jersey winter, I decided I would trek west and relocate to California while I was still young and reckless enough to take such a chance. After a ten day cross-country road trip I was settling into my Culver City apartment as an official resident of Los Angeles. Knowing few people beyond my fellow NJ expatriate Victor, I ventured into the world of online dating in search of a girl who could tolerate my scraggly hair and harsh east coast sense of humor... Meanwhile, ninety miles away a girl was finishing school to become a Vascular Ultrasound Technician and dabbling in the online dating world - primarily batting away messages from creeps in search of a guy who knew the difference between there, their and they're. Now, not to sound too robotic, but when you're searching online for a relationship you can set a distance range for those you're willing to meet...and I was not searching for people 90 miles away. But somehow, either by fate or a poorly coded website, I came across a blue eyed blonde who shared each and every core value I did. She was honest and blunt, yet open-minded and accepting. She loved music and books, and made me laugh before I even heard her voice. And she was flat out gorgeous - the kind of girl you (illogically) think would never give you the time of day. Like a kid on Christmas morning anxious to open his first present, I put my best foot forward (or keystrokes?) and let her know why we needed to meet, distance be damned. Fast forward 3 months, and after endless texts and phone calls Molly had landed an internship at a medical center in Tarzana and was moving into a house a mere 20 miles from Culver City (to be fair, I was willing to drive to Murietta where she lived before, but she dodged me time and time again). Our first date was at The White Harte, a British pub where we had dinner and drinks. After starting the night by overcoming initial nerves, Molly was later sampling the food off my plate (without asking), unphased as if we'd known each other for years. I'l never forget that simple moment and how we both felt that same ease with each other instantly. We'd learn that we each had a love for animals, could listen to 60's soul over pop radio, and both considered a house, a yard and a family as the ideal future over big city dreams." In a nutshell, Joe and I fell in love in the cyber world months before we met face to face. The first night we met was the last night of singledom for the both of us. We did most of the planning on our own. I started about a year ahead of time because I am a stickler for details and wanted this most memorable day to reflect Joe and I as individuals and our love for each other as a couple. I used Pinterest for ideas and Etsy became my very best friend.
