After dinner, asked the cute groomsman to dance.
We were both students in college and anxious to live together—which to us and to our parents with whom Renee was still living meant marriage. Somehow, one day when we were studying together, we just said that we should be living together. A week later we were married. Not even a wedding per se. Just a cake and a subway run back down to the village and the Feenjon. We were on vacation at Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos.
I was invited by my family friend, Sailor [Brinkley Cook]and Andrew was with his family. I thought she was adorably shy and stunningly beautiful. We went on a family trip through Italy and then the last three days we spent alone. We went to Tuscany and stayed at a beautiful old castle hotel.
The day we arrived, we had a dinner scheduled at 7: On our way, I could tell Andrew was quiet, so I started to get nervous. We got to the restaurant and walked into a private room with candles everywhere, a huge bouquet of flowers, champagne and three waiters.
They poured us champagne and left, then Andrew asked if I would marry him. When I met co-host Mark Steines on set in Hollywood, I was a bit nervous about being on national television, but he smiled and put me right at ease with his Midwestern charm.
I later learned he was a single dad. After the show, she e-mailed me to ask me out for dinner, but I was already booked, so she returned to New England. We texted back and forth, then chatted often by phone. Mark asked me to attend the Hero Dog Awards program in L. Since he was still at work when I arrived in LA, I went directly to his guest house where I found a huge basket filled with all kinds of things I loved that he had remembered from our phone conversations—lotions, snacks, candles and flowers.
Before I put my foot on the first step, I paused knowing that everything in my life from this point forward would be different. To make the red carpet event special for her, I offered to arrange for professional hair, makeup and wardrobe for the red carpet.
We had an incredible week after which I flew back East, sold my house and moved to L. We got married at a surprise pop-up wedding at home; guests thought it would be a party to celebrate the next season.
Reed and I met about five hours after he replied to a Craigslist post of mine looking for a roommate for our three bedroom apartment in Palo Alto. I really liked her purple hair and her dog. When our other roommate was out of town we started hanging out more. I even helped him make a Tinder profile because he had recently broken up with an ex he never used it. We eventually decided to be more than roommates.
Our morning schedules began matching up and we started eating breakfast together at the kitchen table. We met after an year-old girl, Macey, persistently asked us to consider dating.
She was one of my dancers on the school dance team I coached. I kept hearing about this Matt guy and how he could be my soulmate. One day, Macey Googled Matt, which took me by surprise because I really had no idea why she would be doing that to find a picture of her friend. I knew zero about golf so I figured this guy would never be interested in a middle school teacher who could barely catch a ball gracefully.
Where has he been all my life? My mom persuaded me to just go for fun. When I walked in the gym, around 30 middle school girls were screaming that I had arrived. I decided to text her later to wish her a happy New Year and that is where our love story began.
I was tired of being set up so I just went into the meeting with no expectations. I only planned on staying for 30 minutes. I ended up staying for three hours. Matt proposed about 10 months after we first met. He handed me a blue book filled with pictures of things we had done together with sweet captions underneath. She was flipping through the book crying because she thought it was a sweet thing to do and when she got to the last page I dropped down on one knee and asked her to marry me.
We were both working in WeWork City Hall on the 26th floor. I was an intern for BEAU, a custom-made suiting company, and Joseph was working for a different company. It was my first day and he came up to my desk and introduced himself. I came to visit her office to gossip with everyone, saw Paulina the intern, and introduced myself with a big smile on my face.
The first time I really connected with her was in the common area during lunch, weeks later. We were both lying. We went to Toloacheone of my favorite Mexican restaurants, then to a hookah lounge. We were having such a great time that we ended the night at a local bar on the Upper East Side. My very good friend and agent set us up at a fundraiser for the U.

Erik walked right over to me and we had already planned that we were going to give each other a handshake with a kiss on the cheek. I just went with what was comfortable. She apparently ran this through her mind several times and we landed on the same thing.
Once I calmed down because I was very, very nervous, we started chatting and it maybe took him 20 minutes before he told me all about his swimming career when he was six years old, how he broke a record and immediately retired after that. I remember every minute of the first date. Wine, beer, club soda, anything?
The media strategist and digital advertiser were introduced by their doorman. The Williamsburg couple met after their doorman introduced them.
John, our doorman, worked extra hard to make sure I knew the guy on floor 12 thought I was cute. Marissa moved into my building over the summer. I noticed her walking through our lobby, and mentioned to our doorman that I was checking her out. Later that day, he knocked on my door to let me know he told Marissa all about it. Since it was pretty much a blind first meeting, I was pleasantly surprised he was so handsome. Marissa, as beautiful as I remembered and as fun as I hoped, invited me in, where I ended up having a blast and drinking half the bourbon while hanging out her and her friends.
They hopped on one foot together for a minute We got paired up for an orientation icebreaker first week of college and hopped on one foot together for like, a minute.
