Our Story


We met, and fell in love.

And now we’re getting married.

Ali will fill in the details.

-Mike

So. The details.

Mike and I were both fans of a particular movie director and both a member of his website. On April 2, 2005, he was having a Q & A session  in Redbank, NJ. We both planned to go. We planned to meet up with each other. And after that weekend that was that. We were all moony, gaga stupid for each other.

A year went by with us living across the country from each other. On our first anniversary Mike made this little video for us:

In May of 2006, I flew up to New Jersey and Mike and I made our first cross-country drive home. To our home.

Since he moved here, it hasn’t been easy. Employment and financial issues made our new found 24-7ness really difficult. But it didn’t ever affect “us”. I, honestly, don’t know if I would have made it through that really dark time if I didn’t have Mike with me.

But we did. Which is why this engagement and wedding is so important. We can finally do it. After 5 years of constantly worrying about money and feeling like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, we can finally do it.

And we want you all to be a part of it.
