It all started back in Feb 2014 when Richie and Ann Marie met at Don's Seafood while she was a hostess and he was a server/manager. After hanging out at a few house parties (and Richie becoming so impressed with her increasingly improved beer pong skills ;)), he asked her to go on their first date. Following a month of dating, Ann MaRichie was officially a go on April 25th!
There were ups and downs and all arounds- a couple of graduations, a move to Lafayette and then Shreveport for Richie, a move to Metairie for both of them, and the adoption of their fur child Benji!
Their next big move was back to the Northshore... this time, a house in Ponchatoula! During their final walk-through, Richie popped the question, Ann Marie said yes, and the best is yet to come!
