Hi, we're Jeremy & Stefanie.
We met the beginning of our freshman year of college. We were friends throughout college and after graduating, but didn't start dating until July 2011. For a few years, we had been talking about going to New York to see the "new" Yankee baseball stadium but we had never followed through and made plans.
We have now been married seven years and our only regret is that we did not start dating sooner.
Finally, in 2011 Jeremy made it happen. As we got closer to the day of the game, it became obvious that Derek Jeter might hit his 3,000th hit at the game we had tickets for. What was not obvious to either of us was if this trip was a date or not.
The night of our game, it was pouring rain, but we took the subway to the Yankee stadium anyway. As we arrived at the stadium, we found out the game was postponed, and no make-up day announced. Jeremy quickly went and bought tickets for the game the next day and then we went out to dinner. At dinner, Jeremy worked up the courage and said, "Do you ever wonder what is going on between us?" I said yes and after a brief discussion, we ended up deciding that we should start dating. The next day we went to see the Yankee game and witnessed Derek Jeter make history with his 3,000th hit--as a couple. We immediately began spending most weekends together and quickly knew we would marry, but we just needed time. We dated for a little over a year before Jeremy proposed. Eleven months later, we married overlooking the DC skyline, with our family and friends witnessing our marriage. We have now been married six years and our only regret is that we did not start dating sooner.
