Maria Rose Smeriglio & Martin Francis Masterson IV
Cristina Poulos & Benjamin Romeo, III.
Nicole and Ross first crossed paths while working at the same hedge fund in South Norwalk. But it wasn’t until a fun-filled afternoon at a Yankees game with coworkers that they really hit it off.
When Katerina and Brian met in Mathematics of Art class during their freshman year, everything just added up, and they began dating.
Devin and Kevin attended the same high school in Fairfield, but it wasn’t until they each attended a local party in 2005 that fate intervened.
Talk about reaching across the aisle. When Republican State Senator Art Linares cofounded a Bipartisan Young Legislators Caucus, Democratic State Representative Caroline Simmons got on board, and they hit it off while working together on legislation.
Carolyn had just moved to Boston to pursue a legal career, and Jake had recently become a Bostonian after separating from the Navy when mutual friends introduced the two.
When Katie matched with Mark on Bumble but didn’t initiate a conversation, he took matters into his own hands and used his one-time extension request to get her attention. It worked, and they enjoyed a first date at a rooftop bar in Manhattan.
When Cristina Poulos and Benjamin Romeo first met at Zaza Italian Gastrobar, they quickly realized that they had likely crossed paths multiple times, having grown up near each other, but had never met before that night.
Elizabeth and Charles met by happenstance at a West Village bar in New York City. They both had plans that night but popped into Mr. Dennehy’s to have a drink and kill time.
When Brian and Emily respectively joined Teach for America, they didn’t realize they would be learning a lesson in love.
Be thankful for good friends and good brothers; you might find love because of them.
Katherine had no idea she would fall in love with the boy next door. Or, rather, the boy upstairs. Brendan and Kat lived in the same apartment complex and frequently saw each other in the building’s gym but never spoke to one another.
Anne and Patrick first met in Manhattan during an internship at J.P. Morgan. They hit it off and became fast friends.
Sara and Tommy were first introduced by mutual friends in Washington, D.C., where they were both attending a music festival.
After being vaguely aware of each other for nearly a decade, Cathleen Bombard and Jeffrey Brusven finally met in person at a New York Fashion Week event in 2014 and had an instant connection.
Many fond memories have been made at college parties. For Sara, she can reminisce about the party during her freshman year at the University of Michigan, where she met her future husband, Jeremy.
Entering into a new professional field can be exciting. What’s even more exciting is finding your soul mate during the process.
Even having lived only miles apart as teenagers in backcountry Greenwich, Meghan and Todd didn’t meet until decades later as colleagues in the venture capital industry.
Peter proposed on Christmas morning by hanging a ring on a branch of the Christmas tree and telling Caren that her gift was in, not under, the tree.
One spring night at Villanova University, Anthony Balsam proved that a photobomb can last a lifetime when he jumped into Courtney Parrett’s picture with her friends. The two hit it off immediately.
John and Louise met during the first week of freshman year at Boston College. Though they were friends throughout the four years, it took a BC vs. Notre Dame football game to make the sparks fly.
The couple dated for one year before getting engaged at Gabriele’s Steakhouse at the same table where they had their first date.
When Alison and Eric first met for dinner and drinks, they quickly discovered that they had attended the same elementary and middle schools, just a single year apart.
Peter and Sarah met while volunteering for a community organization. As they got to know each other, their friendship deepened, and after a year they finally went on their first date. Sparks flew and the rest is history.
