Stacey & Chris
May 27, 2011
Photography by Andres Valenzuela Photography

Stacey and Chris met in March 2006 when they bumped into each other at a restaurant, but the two seemed almost destined to meet. Her mom and his parents went to high school in River Edge together, and at their 20th reunion, both sets of parents chatted about their 8-year-old children. Stacey also attended nursery school at Chris's church, and they had had mutual friends. "It seemed meant to be," Stacey says. "And it was." They got engaged in May 2010 when Chris sent Stacey on a scavenger hunt. He had hidden each clue in a place that held important memories for the couple, and each clue contained a single letter. When Stacey found the last clue, stashed in Hoboken where she and Chris had had their first date, she finally decoded the message: "Will you marry me?" And so Chris proposed, ring in hand, and then called over their friends, who had been waiting at a nearby bar. "It was the perfect night," Stacey says.
