Marni & Eric in New York City, NY
Before Facebook, and even before MySpace, there was Friendster, which was responsible for uniting Marni and Eric. Marni spotted his profile all about cooking and travel. She sent him a flirty message: “If you’re that good of a cook, maybe you should make me dinner.” Though he didn’t cook, they did get drinks the next night -- and dated from then on.

The Groom Eric Schoenfeld, 31, a business analyst
The Date April 25
With Marni’s 30th birthday around the corner, she asked Eric if he had begun looking for rings. He admitted he hadn’t. Later, when Marni got out of the shower, Eric gave her the ring he’d hidden for a year -- his great-grandmother’s.
