Ivy & Tommy

"Tommy and I met at a house party when we were 16 and 18 years old. Tommy was fresh out of high school and I was about to be a junior. He asked for my number in a dark garage and we danced together after. I remember anxiously waiting for him to call me on my Nokia 3390, every time my phone rang, I would run from wherever I was to make sure I didn’t miss it. That was how our love story began…

We dated briefly after that and due to certain circumstances decided to be friends. We stayed friends throughout the years and always remembered to stay in touch. We would meet up when we could and would update each other when we had the chance. Tommy moved to TX for a few years and then due to a better opportunity with his job moved back to CA. He now lived in San Diego and since San Diego was closer than TX we made plans to meet up to catch up. After years of planning to meet up, we finally did. My 2 girlfriends and I took a mini trip to San Diego to party. I would say the rest is history. We talked on the phone almost every day since that weekend and eventually went on our first date. Now it has been 5 ½ years since that date and 1 year married. It has been a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t want to have it any other way." - Ivy & Tommy One Year Anniversary
