Jordyn and Alex met at West Virginia University.
It might have been love at first sight when Jordyn saw Alex across the pool in late August before junior year. They ended up knowing a few mutual friends and were both invited later that week to a party and that’s when the couple became “friends” although there’s no way to describe the feeling you get when you know that’s the guy you are going to marry!
I think you just know when it’s love. It’s the feeling you get when you’re together and your body just goes numb!
Alex asked Jordyn to go for a walk one Saturday morning. He told her there was a fair in the park right by their apartment in Hoboken. When the couple got close enough to the park, Jordyn looked at Alex and said, “where’s the fair?” Alex told Jordyn to keep walking and he was pointing somewhere, which distracted Jordyn from watching Alex take the ring out of his vest pocket. When Jordyn looked back, Alex asked her to marry him.
And, of course Jordyn said YES!
After the proposal Alex walked Jordyn a few more steps to the Hoboken waterfront restaurant Mcloones, and there stood their whole family, siblings, nieces, nephews, and their best best friends! BEST DAY EVER.
Thank you Jordyn and Alex for sharing your amazing story with us!
