From a toy ring proposal to their video game themed wedding on a championship golf course with Creatrix Photography, hit the fairway with Jovi and Brandon in Honolulu, Hawaii.
A fateful message on an online dating site from Brandon was the beginning of their geeky love. ”I checked out his profile,” explains Jovi, “My idea of a great first date – anything that doesn’t FEEL like a first date. Ok, that’s not too bad – no cliches…and his msg was really casual “let me know if you want to talk and get to know each other – even if it’s just as friends”. So I msg’d him back! And we started talking back and forth…then went on to Gmail/Gchat, and eventually Facebook.” From there the two found they shared a mutual friend and had both been planning to attend his Game Night the day before Valentine’s Day.
