The Bride & Groom

Our Story

VBICO_9opt2

Ben and Valerie met through their mutual friends, Caitlin and Josh. Valerie knew it was love at first sight when she looked across the room and saw Ben in a Goofy hat. They had their first date at Clyde’s two days later. The waitress gave them a free dessert because she said they were the sweetest couple. They dated for 3 three years, and adopted a precious kitten named Fitzy.

On August 5th 2015, Ben proposed to Valerie in Cape May New Jersey, their favorite vacation spot. Ben took Valerie on a horse and carriage ride and asked the question in front of her favorite homes, the Stockton Row Cottages. Ironically, earlier that day they took a walk on the beach and Val asked Ben “what are you waiting for??!”

She was over the moon and could not stop crying with joy. Valerie always wanted to find someone who could make her laugh, and Ben does that every day!

Ben and Valerie are getting married on October 29th, in honor of Valerie’s grandparents Maxine and George who were also married on this day.
