Their LOVE story…
We were set up by our younger sisters and started talking and texting in 2013. Jared was a roofer in Portland, OR and I was a PhD student at Washington State University. We went our first date at a pool bar, Rialto, in Portland, OR. We were long-distance our first year together. Then we traveled from state to state for my job for the next 4 years and settled in northern California. On his 31st birthday in 2018, Jared proposed in the parking lot of the restaurant where we had dinner! We are best friends and so excited to be spending the rest of our lives together.
