Jaleesa and Sean’s love story began at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA back in 2011. They had met a couple times in different social settings, though the sparks began to fly when running into each other while studying at the Stacks (a library in the engineering school) in between classes. Immediately, they began to meet there regularly each week, and several weeks later, they went on their first date (which may or may not have been the result of a date auction…). They bonded over their Caribbean ancestry, love for food, movies, music, and traveling and officially started dating in Fall 2011. Upon Sean’s graduation in 2013, he moved back home to Northern Virginia and Jaleesa acquired a job in Richmond after she graduated in 2014. In order to keep the relationship afloat amidst the distance, they took turns driving to see one another a couple times a month. Many years of memories later, and they gained some frequent flyer miles (Bahamas, Toronto, Hawaii, Miami, Bethany Beach, Seattle, California, and several other places), supported each other through grad school, and even went indoor skydiving. Their wedding was a celebration of their years together, enjoying each other’s company and enjoying the adventure!
