I'll keep this brief. I met Evie at a group dinner in New York in 2006. Well, met is a strong word, not sure if words were exchanged. Smash cut to July 2013, Sun Valley, ID, Joseph DeCastro wedding. After smoothly and confidently (read: awkwardly and nervously) approaching Evie, I was shocked to learn she did not remember me. Undeterred I wrapped up the conversation as quickly as possible and sped away. Things improved the night of the wedding and when we were not trying to avoid my parents I learned how vibrant and fun she was. Many Skype calls ensued and our first date took place in September 2013 in Tuscany. Sticking with the "bold" theme, Evie moved to San Francisco and we were engaged in October 2014 near Evie's parents home on Cape Cod.
