It all started in the unlikeliest of places… business school! Joe transferred to Fordham University in 2013 and he and Alex were both new to the business school. They ended up being placed in the same cohort, which meant they took all of the same classes together. Little did Alex know that in 2014, Joe told his friends that he wanted to date her. And little did Joe know that Alex secretly rearranged her schedule to keep taking classes with him, even after their cohort ended! After countless group projects, study sessions, and, really, just any excuse to hang out with each other, Joe asked Alex on a date during their last philosophy class in May 2015. From traveling the world, moving into their first apartment, and finding the best hidden gems in New York City, they’ve had so many unforgettable adventures together. In May 2021, Alex and Joe celebrated their sixth anniversary and Joe surprised Alex by giving her a VR headset. She put the headset on, and inside there was a video that Joe made with pictures of the past six years together. At the end of the video, there was a picture of a diamond ring being made, and when Alex took the headset off, Joe was down on one knee (with the ring from the video!). Alex and Joe are so excited for this next chapter of their lives together and can’t wait to celebrate with you on September 2!
