Ann & Steve in Key Biscayne, FL
Ann was enjoying an evening out with her girlfriends at a Fort Lauderdale nightspot when Steve and a few of his friends strolled in. Since it was a weeknight, the two groups were the only patrons, so Steve and his friends joined Ann and hers. The two hit it off.
The Bride Ann Ferrido, 26, architectural designer
The Groom Steven (Steve) Remotigue, 31, software engineer
The Date March 10
Eight months after meeting Ann and Steve traveled to Chicago for a friend’s wedding. During some down time, the couple headed downtown and strolled along Lake Michigan. “For some reason Steve kept reaching into his coat pocket and pulling out his phone, checking the time,” Ann says. Eventually, the two sat down near Adler Planetarium. As they did, Steve reached into his pocket again—but this time, he pulled out a ring. “The phone checking had just been to fake me out so I wouldn’t know,” Ann says. Afterward, the couple headed to a friend’s house to celebrate.
