Paula and CJ met in the tiny state of Rhode Island USA in 2015. Both had been attending Johnson & Wales University. Paula had met CJ during her undergrad and they officially got together in 2016 after almost two years of friendship plus working together for the University. Before this, their paths just continued to cross until CJ asked Paula out in the Summer of 2016, in her Cranston RI apartment after a day well spent at the beach with friends. Little did they know this would be the start of a fun, crazy and immensely loving relationship that would soon bring two worlds from opposite sides of the country together. CJ first met Paula’s family in 2016 at Thanksgiving dinner (great way to introduce someone to a big Italian family lol!) and Paula first met CJ’s family out in Arizona in 2017, which also became one of her new favorite places to travel to. Here we are in 2023, ready to say “I do” in front of our family and friends who have and still support us, and ready to have the time of our lives. That’s Amore!
