How We Met

First comes Tinder, then comes marriage?

You read that right! Jacqueline and Johnny met on tinder! Johnny had just moved to Virginia and knew basically no one. Jacqueline and Johnny matched and swore off any possibility of a relationship. That quickly changed. From late night pizza and wine nights, to breweries and baseball games and everything in between Jacqueline showed Johnny the area during Summer of 2021, and while doing this they fell in love. Jacqueline’s fiery personality is the perfect match for Johnny's calm nature and this quickly made them inseparable. Fast forward to December 2021 and they "didn't move in together"... except somehow two couches became one, the extra pizza cutter was thrown away and they set up both kids rooms in Johnny's home. Over the next 7 months they would travel to Indiana many times to see Henley, Chicago to explore with the kids and continue to build their new family together. Predeployment leave in July of 2022 was one of the best two weeks of their lives. They went to the Chicago cubs game, saw the "Bean" in Chicago and Jacqueline's favorite, explored a new Zoo. Where Johnny proposed! (well sort of, since all he said was "hey babe" down on one knee with a ring in his hand, before Jacqueline started sobbing) Faced with a 4 month deployment to the middle east, starting August of 2022, Jacqueline and Johnny made the decision to get legally married. (You read that right!! met/dated/engagement/marriage all in a a year- eventful we know!) But now they want to celebrate with all their loved ones and make it official in the Catholic church!
