After much persuading from Jared’s roommate, Paige Massie agreed to meet Jared Getz, a fellow student at James Madison University. The two began dating soon after, and it quickly became the perfect college sweetheart story.
Reverend Victoria Burdick officiated at the ceremony at The Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson. The bride walked down the aisle with her father to “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles after the worry of bad weather passed. Once the reception began, also at the manor, Paige and Jared joined Jared’s grandparents on the dance floor dancing to one of the newlywed’s favorite songs.
Paige is the daughter of Gail Koester of Newbern, North Carolina, and James Massie of Lynchburg, Virgina. She graduated from Holy Cross High School in Lynchburg and went on to pursue her bachelor’s degree in industrial psychology at James Madison University. She then received her master’s degree in science in applied psychology from Fairfield University. Paige is a senior human resources generalist at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Purchase, New York.
The groom is the son of Linda and Steven Getz of Southport. Jared graduated from Fairfield High School and went on to receive his bachelor’s in business administration from James Madison University. He is working as a business analyst at Glencore, LTD, in Stamford.
The couple honeymooned in St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Virgin Gorda in British Virgin Islands. They live in Norwalk.
