JOHN & AMY

JOHN
&
AMY

our story

Although we grew up 20 minutes away from each other and went to the same high school, technically the first time we met was in Boulder in 2008. While Amy was doing college visits as a high school senior, she went to a party at John's house.
While they barely spoke, they still remember that night!

Our real introduction took place in San Francisco at a mutual friend's birthday party in September 2021. John made Amy hysterically laugh all night, but it wasn't until about a month later that he got the courage to ask Amy out to dinner... for his birthday party along with 15 other mutual friends. Despite the crowd, Amy and John became inseparable that night and went on their first real date a few days later. Fun fact: John was so excited that he came to pick Amy up a full day early, or perhaps...he misread his calendar.
He's been chasing her and making her laugh ever since.
