They met on an off chance. She was spending time with her dad on the last day of his visit to New York. Justin was catching up with an old friend before work would take him out of the country for months. Neither of them thought much of it. Months later they got back in touch. One dinner lead to another. And then a New Your Rangers hockey game at Madison Square Garden that neither one paid all that much attention to. It wasn’t long before Stephanie’s friends started hearing about this friend named Justin. They were immediately suspicious, suspicious the way your besties can be, when they’re so excited for you and can tell it’s just a matter of time before they’re going to be part of your wedding day!

Stefanie’s dad proudly grins and claims to have had a part in the matchmaking. After all, he was there the first time they met.

Stefanie and Justin, Thank you so much for having me be part of your wedding day. I wish you the best as you live your life adventures hand in hand. Much love, Nelya
