Naomi and Jeff
We emailed and talked on the phone until we finally met in person. It was chemistry from the beginning. We lived 110 miles apart so dating at first consisted of phone calls nearly every day and spending time together on the weekend. But we fell in love fairly quickly. By the end of June 2008 he had proposed and we made plans for me to move to IL in August 2008. We spent lots of time dreaming up the wedding we wanted, but in the end we had to change plans when we were both laid off in January of 2009.
We decided to use a portion of my tax refund to go to Las Vegas and get married in an evening ceremony in a garden gazebo on March 17, 2009. It was so intimate and romantic and wonderful despite missing the company of our family and friends. Despite our employment challenges it has been wonderful. We still plan to renew our vows for family and friends and have the reception that we missed. Thanks for making our happiness possible by matching us and bringing us together.
