Our Love Story
Here you can find out a little more information on Rick & Mandy, including their individual perspectives on how they met and how Rick popped the big question!
How They Met
♥ It all started with a wink (it’s like a poke on facebook)…
on match.com! After I saw that Rico Bernard (I don’t know how I wasn’t scared off by that user name) had winked at me and written me a message, I checked out his profile, we chatted online for a couple of hours and exchanged numbers. A few minutes later I got the first of thousands of text messages… “Hi!”
On the Friday of our first date I remember texting each other saying how nervous we were to finally meet and Rick even asked me advice on what he should wear! So after a couple of phone calls and a few days of texting later, we finally met! We had sushi, went out for drinks and had such an amazing time! I knew from the minute we met there was something special about Rick… he made me laugh, made me feel safe and made me feel so comfortable to just be myself. The next day he texted me and told me what a great time he had with me… and that he couldn’t keep the smile off his face. I couldn’t either… and I haven’t stopped smiling since.
