How We Met

April 2018

It was April, 2018. Marco and Emily were both at a mixed ultimate pick-up game trying to get ready for the season that was about to start. While they were both standing on the line waiting for play to start, Marco overheard a conversation about a popular music festival that he once attended. "Yeah!" a mysterious female voice said. "I'm flying out in a couple months to go to this years!" Marco looked over to see who he overheard say that and to his surprise, there right in front of him was this cute girl he had neither seen nor met before. He knew he had to meet her at some point and planned to talk to her after the game! But after the game Emily took off and left the fields before Marco got a chance to really introduce himself. Later in the week, determined to find out who that mystery girl was, Marco went to social media to find out if they had any mutual friends. As he went to the search bar, he realized he only heard people call her by her nickname which he though at the time was "EV". After talking to some friends, one of them suggested that this mysterious girls initials must be an E and a V. So Marco started his search there. He eventually stumbled upon a profile for someone named Emily Leivy. "Ohhhhhhhh, they were saying Leivy, That makes way more sense" Marco thought to himself. Marco added her on Facebook where the two would start messaging back and forth for the next couple days. They learned that they had a million things in common beyond music and ultimate frisbee. This went on for a couple weeks until Marco finally asked Emily out to a concert. Emily said yes and the rest is pretty much history! 3 years, one giant goldendoodle named Ollie, and a house later, they got engaged!
