April & Jennifer

Every relationship is a story. While there is plenty in each story that we can’t control, there are moments when we get to make decisions about the kind of story a relationship will become over time. When it comes to our relationship, April and I both believe this love is our masterpiece.

Ashley & Sydney

Their love story started when they both swiped right, numerous times. It took seven months of deleting and reinstalling the app, talking on and off before they finally went on their first date. Sydney says it’s because Ashley was intimidating and she was a little afraid of all the tattoos (and the fact that she’s a Slytherin!) but Ashley won her over and it wasn’t long before the two became inseparable. They share their engagement story with us.
