How We Met

It all started with a pun...

Anthony and Emma met online on the dating site Jdate. Emma's profile included that she is a lover of puns, so naturally, Anthony decided to send a punny joke her way. Coincidentally, the joke happened to be wedding themed: "Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent" Anthony's pun and his overall charm immediately won Emma over. Even before they met in person, Anthony and Emma could tell they had a special connection. They sent lengthy messages on Jdate to one another, what they would later call "essays", bonding over their shared sushi obsession, their sense of humor, and their common upbringing. After numerous sushi dates, they grew inseparable and the rest is history! Join us 5 years later as we come full circle and that wedding pun comes to life.
