Caroline & Jeff in New York, NY
When Caroline accepted an invitation to her friend's amateur theatre group's play, she had no idea that was the night she would meet her future husband. Caroline spent the entire day shopping and decided she didn't have time to shower or change before the play. She showed up in her frumpiest shoes and a stained T-shirt. That didn't stop Jeff from approaching her. Caroline and Jeff both ended up at the wrap party. After that, she followed him to a friend's birthday party and they ended up staying out past 6 a.m.
