From the bride... "Hassan and I met at In-n-Out in Newport Beach, hungry for a bite after dancing all night at a fundraising gala. I was living on the East Coast, and he lived in San Diego, but despite the distance, we stayed in touch. We had so much to talk about and shared so much in common. We are both of Syrian descent, share a passion for medicine and helping those in need, and love traveling the world. Shortly after we met, I moved to Houston. We visited each other several times and bonded over long conversations at Fellini, my favorite coffee shop in Houston, on several hikes in Southern California, and late-night phone chats. When I moved to San Diego, after completion of my medical training, our connection grew stronger and we knew what we shared was something special and that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together."
From the bride... "We first truly met in high school through our mutual friend Derek during sophomore year, over ten years ago. Despite being in different social circles, we found each other incredibly easy to talk and laugh with, and we were soon talking every night on Skype (back when people still used it). We started dating after a few months, in July of 2009, at the ages of 15 and 16, and as we've naturally grown over the years, our love for each other has evolved and deepened. We both went to college on the east coast but were still a 5 hour bus ride apart (Columbia vs Cornell). Even after graduating, we were still in different cities until last year, when Jerry finally moved back to New York after proposing."
From the groom... "The first time we met was during week one Freshman year (2012) during a class at UCSD in the computer lab where I helped her with a homework problem. The second time we met was a year later right before our Sophomore year started. We had mutual friends, so we got to know each other a bit during that year. The following Summer was when we really hit things off and we started hanging out a lot at the end of the summer before Junior year. Our first "hang out" was planned by Caitlin and we went to In-N-Out and to see a double feature drive-in movie of Guardians of the Galaxy and The Maze Runner. From there, we were pretty inseparable, trying to have a date night once per week while at school. On October 6, 2014, she finally said yes to being my Girlfriend. The following two years at school were great and we were basically attached at the hip. The year after, Caitlin graduated and started working near home and I stayed at UCSD to get my Master's degree, so we tried the long-ish distance thing, though I did drive back home most weekends to see her. A little over a year after finishing my Master's degree at school, we are finally ready to move forward after 4 years and 2 weeks (bummer that October 6, 2018, was already booked when we began looking at this venue, that would've been a cool four year anniversary)."
"They met in their first year of law school. They had almost all the same classes that year, which gave Phillip excuses to talk to Stephanie. After the law school's annual ski trip to Mammoth, they became better friends and chatted constantly through the school's instant messaging system. They quickly discovered they shared interests and a similar sense of humor over the numerous conversations in and out of class. They started dating during the summer and were inseparable ever since."
