The Meeting – A Match Made on Match: Will and I met on November 26, 2010. I used to fib about how we met for the first few years, but since everything worked out so well… We met on Match.com, and really hit it off right away.

Jessica called Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo after spotting one of our Enzoani Jordan bridal gowns. As soon as she tried it on, she knew this was the dress she’d wear when she would marry her best friend, Jim Rudnet. We invited Jessica to tell her love story here.
Our Meeting: Jim and I met working together at Longhorn Steakhouse during college in Warrington, PA. He was a bartender and I was a hostess.
The Proposal: During our first vacation together in the Bahamas, Jim proposed to me on the balcony of our hotel room overlooking the beach. I was completely shocked, I didn’t even know he was looking for rings! We spent the next 5 days in the Bahamas celebrating.
Our Ceremony: We wanted a Catholic ceremony without the difficulty of going back and forth from church to reception.
