The year was 2013. Both sam and troy were established in the nyc corporate world but were each looking to meet that special someone to share their lives with. fortunately, they happened to come across each other on a dating website (everyone is doing it!). After a fun first date together where troy was tricked by a homeless man and sam said she was "sooo laid back", a second date to celebrate sam finishing a half-marathon, and a third date playing tennis and watching the red sox together, they each knew they had found their match. Ever since then the fun has not stopped: trips abroad, SURPRISE parties, weekends with friends at the beach, and making a home together. after getting permission from sam's parents and convincing her to take a trip to the jersey shore on a rainy saturday in early may, troy proposed to sam on the beach at seabright beach club and whisked her away to miami for a long weekend to celebrate. ever since then the excitement has kept building for the wedding and the lifetime of happiness to share together afterwards.
