"He was an old friend’s little brother," Vy reminisced about meeting her husband, Jesse. "We ended up hanging out at a college party, which was funny because I hadn’t hung out with his sister in years. Our first date was at a sushi place, but I didn’t know that Jesse had never had sushi before. I guess he overdid it and ended up puking on the side of the road after he dropped me off. He didn’t tell me that detail for a few years."
"Right away, I noticed that he was a total sweetheart and such a gentleman. I realized he was 'the one' when I saw him with his nieces; I loved his commitment to his family. We dated for a million years. I kind of always knew we were going to get married, I just didn’t know when."
