Alyson & Christopher | Engagement Session
Asbury Park, NJ
Tell us a little about yourselves!
Chris and I met when we were in the 8th grade. We attended Immaculata High School in Somerville, NJ together and dated up until our Senior year. We were then on and off in college beginning our Sophomore year as we were in different states. After we graduated, we had gone our separate ways for a few years. In the meantime Chris had lived in the city as an accountant and then decided to become a police officer in Hillsborough. I was living in Hoboken with my girlfriends from college and working for Bed Bath & Beyond Corporate office. Fast forward to about 2 and a half years ago, we both had houses at the shore and saw each other at the Osprey. Just around 2 years ago we made it official again, and the rest is history! It’s true what they say, nothing compares to your first love. We decided to get married down the shore where our story began over again.
Do you have a favorite activity together?
We love to go to country concerts. I can’t even count how many we’ve been to over the years!
Do you have a special song? What is it and why?
’17 Again’ by Brantley Gilbert. the first part of the lyrics, ‘there ain’t nothing like those first loves, baby, remember them high school days’ perfectly highlights our journey together.
What is one thing that your significant other does that always makes you smile?
Whenever Chris is about to say something funny or tell a joke, he starts to crack up at himself before he even says it. It makes me laugh every time! He is the funniest person I know and we have the same sense of humor. He’s also got some great dance moves that always make me smile
What is your favorite memory together?
When you have as much history as we do, its nice to have so many memories together from the time we were in our young teens. Our first prom together our Junior year will always be memorable, our shore houses the past few summers, and our trips to Punta Cana, Nashville, and Savannah GA this year. And of course our engagement and all of our planning! Visiting 6 venues in one day and finding the most perfect venue in Monmouth Beach may be my favorite memory to date. We can’t wait to make more when our big day arrives and in our future together!
