Story from the Bride:
Greg is a high school math teacher and coach at Sylvania Northview and I am a clinical research coordinator at the University of Michigan as well as nursing student at Mercy College. We have a dog, Oliver, who has been with me since I was a freshman in high school and may love greg a little more than he loves me, but I’m working on getting over that. We bought our house in Sylvania in June 2018 and have loved settling into the community and exploring the Toledo area.
Greg and I met due to our very own cupid and mutual friend, Dina. At the time, Greg was living in Washington D.C. and I was in Detroit. Greg came home for Thanksgiving in 2016 and Dina thought it would be a great opportunity for the two of us to meet. It happened to be at a bar watching the Michigan/Ohio State game and little did I know I would not only be meeting Greg, but his parents and sister as well. Talk about intimidating! Their presence though truly made me interested in him from the get go, because I could tell instantly that he was a family man and had such a big heart. After meeting that day, the relationship took off very quickly with both of us booking flights constantly to see each other until Greg moved home in July 2017.. We moved in together not long after in November 2017 and Greg proposed as we decorated our first Christmas tree as a couple. We celebrated the next day with our family and friends…exactly one year after we met. Our relationship has been a complete whirlwind and I still have to pinch myself to remember that it’s real. I am so lucky to get to call this amazing man mine and I love the life we have built together.
