But I was crying I was laughing so hard when I read this couple's story of how they met. I laughed obviously because it's funny but more so because I totally envision either my darling sister, or my oh-so-direct best friends assuming the role of the mother in my true life story. Do you see it?
Kirsten Kedzierski, 26 Scot Hinshaw, 34
Kirsten and Scot will marry December 5, 2009 in Toledo, Ohio.
1. How did you meet?
The couple met at a hotel in Costa Rica while attending different destination weddings. Kirsten caught Scot's eye by the resort's pool, and he approached her. When she explained she'd attended a wedding the evening before, he invited her to be his date at his friend's wedding that evening. "I politely declined, but something struck me about him," she says. "When I mentioned this to my mother, my mother marched down to where he was and said, 'Hi, I'm Mary. I'm sorry my daughter is a dumb-ass. She will attend the wedding with you tonight.'" Kirsten did. The next weekend, Scot traveled from D.C. to New York to attend a Yankees game with her, and the rest is history.
