Our story begins in the summer of 2009. June 17, 2009, to be exact. Devon had only lived in Los Angeles for 3 weeks, so he decided to join Match.com to help him meet new people in the city. As luck would have it, Jordan had also recently joined Match. Something about Jordan’s profile caught Devon’s eye (His dashing good looks? His witty sense of humor? According to Devon, it was the fact that Jordan mentioned that he laughs whenever he sees people fall down. Especially off of treadmills). Emails were exchanged and a first date was set.
We met in person for the first time on June 27th, 10 days after Devon’s first email. We spent the afternoon walking around the Americana in Glendale and getting to know each other. Devon describes our first date as “ok.” Well lucky for us, we went on a second date, which received a much more glowing review! Maybe it was the paddle-boats in the park that did it. We ended up spending more and more time together, and before long we were inseparable. Six months later, Devon moved into Jordan’s condo. Over the next 3 years, we spent our time watching movies, cooking, hiking, playing with O’Malley, baking cheesecakes (Devon), eating cheesecakes (Jordan), and making crazy Halloween costumes. Through it all, we grew closer and closer, and on our 3 Year Anniversary, Devon proposed!
We are so excited to begin the next chapter of our lives together, and we can’t wait to spend our wedding day with all of our friends and family. We’ll see you soon!
