About their Wedding

What Brought These Two Together

Just like a real, classic 21st-century love story Stephanie and Jacob first crossed paths on the dating app, Hinge! Both had been searching for someone to share their life with when Hinge decided to introduce their profiles to each other. They planned for their first date to be a 2-hour wine tasting and dinner date. However, sparks flew at the first “Merlot”, and the date quickly went from 2 hours to roughly 6 hours. After dinner, they decided to continue the date in downtown Annapolis where they talked endlessly, drank Starbucks, and walked around in the freezing cold temperatures in January. It was clear to both that there was something special! During this first date, they discovered they both had similar values, interests, and upbringing. Following this first date, they saw each other the very next day at a bar for Raven’s game. With the second date going just as well as the first, they made plans to see each other once or twice a week for a date. Soon Jacob had her loving red wine (instead of just the sweet ones), and Stephanie had Jacob appreciating “chill days” where no plans were needed, and they watched movies all day. All thanks to a dating app these two found that instant and easy connection everyone dreams of finding, and now they can’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together!

When we asked Stephanie and Jacob when their knew marriage was the next chapter in their love story, they both agreed it was an instant feeling, almost at first sight, that they knew they were going to end up together. Stephanie shared, “From the moment we met in the wine tasting room and for the next 6 hours of our first date, our conversation never stopped. It was uncanny how almost everything we talked about could be answered with ‘Same!’, ‘Me too!’ or ‘No Way!’. It was just like how we imagined love stories should be. As our relationship matured, Jake began to drop little hints about the future of our relationship. Until one day out of the blue, he asked me, ‘So how long do I have to wait before I can ask you to marry me?’ I told him about a year and a half. And in true Jake form, he arranged our engagement to be right around that exact time, however, he still managed to keep it a total surprise. Also, we decided to get married because of how similar our values are, how much respect we held for each other, and how we could not imagine the rest of our lives without each other.”

In their free time, Stephanie and Jacob enjoy spending time with friends, going to wineries and vineyards, and exploring new places and restaurants. They also love watching beautiful sunsets together and having fun watching Disney power hour.

Three values that Stephanie and Jacob share as a couple are respect, communication, and their relationships with friends and fa
