Our Story

Andrew and Noelle met in 2003 through a primitive communication tool called AOL Instant Messenger (RIP). See, Noelle had been talking to one of Andrew’s friends and they had sent her a photo of him and all his friends taken at a Hootie and the Blowfish concert (and yes, the photo took over 30 minutes to download thanks to a dial-up internet connection). Noelle’s attention was immediately drawn to a floppy haired, orange hat wearing guy, who had the most killer smile ever. She asked the friend, “who is that?” To which the friend replied, “that’s my friend Andrew, here is his screen name.” Noelle decided it wasn’t creepy at all to message Andrew out of the blue, so that’s what she did. The two of them would talk on AIM for years before meeting. Andrew and Noelle would visit each other off and on in college and stayed in contact through the years. Fast forward to 2016, Noelle came across Andrew’s profile on a popular dating website and took a screenshot and sent it to him. Andrew wasted no time and asked, “so most important question, did you swipe right? And if so, I don’t want to wait for us to match to ask you out on a date.” The two went out the very next day and have been inseparable ever since. The rest is history, and we can't wait to celebrate with all of you!!
