I met Stu like so many other people meet, through a shared group of friends. The only difference in our case was that our shared group of friends was spread across the country and I had never met any of them face to face. In a world of online dating and apps to meet the right partner, we took it a step further and met in a video game.

Like many people do, we spent time as friends within the group, then moved on to being friends outside the group. In the online game we played together, two people could marry their avatars (the characters people play as) and after a while we decided to do just that.

And so, with a small, virtual marriage, we started on our path to the real thing. Over the next few years I would make the trip to Chicago to spend a week with him, and he would fly to Albany to do the same. After a year and a half, he decided to make the move to Albany.

In keeping with the rest of our lives, our wedding was a celebration of everything nerdy. Our tables were named after houses in Game of Thrones. We had swords, and cloaks, and crowns. The words we spoke to each other when we were married were pulled straight out of fantasy. It was a day that was uniquely us and we know our family and friends loved it every bit as much as we did!
