In 2002, Jennifer and Alex met during homecoming at Montclair State University where they both attended college. She was a sophomore, he was a freshman and they became fast friends. They began dating in April 2003, and Alex proposed on Dec. 23, 2009. That day, Jennifer and Alex visited the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, which Alex had never seen Ð and where he planned to pop the question. But the crowds overwhelmed Plan A, so he switched to Plan B and hurried Jennifer off to their favorite restaurant, Del Frisco's. After a romantic dinner at a secluded table, Alex finally pulled out the ring. "My immediate reaction," Jennifer says, "was complete shock and pure excitement. That Christmas, we celebrated not just the holidays but the joining of our two loving families."
