Beautiful Summer Wedding at Avon Old Farms Hotel in Avon, Connecticut

Maria and Sam’s paths first crossed in a freshman dormitory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland in 2006. The two hit the ground running. Maria spent hours pouring over her biology and chemistry textbooks and studying late into the night. Sam took up the sport of rugby, joined the jazz band, and developed an affinity for Baltimore’s finest National Bohemian beer. In between their busy schedules, they found themselves chatting in the dorm hallways late at night on numerous occasions. When they returned from winter break in January, Sam was extremely “disappointed” to hear that Maria and her boyfriend in Brazil were no longer together. Soon enough, they found themselves growing fond of each other, and by the time May rolled around, Sam was no longer disappointed. They kept in touch over the phone that summer and the distance only brought them closer. They returned in the fall, and became inseparable over the next 3 years.

Upon graduating in 2010, the couple found themselves at a crossroads. Maria had been accepted to medical school in Virginia, and Sam had taken a job in Connecticut. They decided to stick things out. Though hundreds of a miles apart, they found a way to stay strong. There were many skype calls and weekend plane and train trips. Maria even made the 10 hour trip by car during her vacations, summoning the power provided by Harry Potter audio books and podcasts. When it came time for Maria to apply for a residency, they knew that they no longer wanted to live apart. Maria would need to apply for a work Visa which had the potential to make things very difficult for her application process. There was no doubt in Sam’s mind that Maria was the one for him, so over a routine skype session, he romantically suggested, “Why don’t we just get married?!” The two were wed in a small ceremony in July of 2013.

In June of 2014, Maria began her residency in Connecticut and after 4 long years apart, they would finally be able to share a home together in West Hartford, Ct. That home became even more complete less than a year later when Maria suggested they visit the CT humane society on a rainy day in March, “just to look”. Less than 24 hours later, Sam was driving home with a 3 month old pitbull in the backseat. Despite the destruction of many shoes, mail, and furniture, Olive, as they named her, has been the most wonderful addition.

Most recently, they have learned that they will be moving on to a new phase of their lives. Maria will begin a fellowship in reproductive medicine at Johns Hopkins starting in July of 2018, and so they’ll be heading back to Baltimore where it all began.

It is needless to say that the last 10 years have been quite an adventure. Sam and Maria are so thankful for the love and support they’ve received throughout this journey, from all of their family and friends. They are thrilled that they finally have the opportunity to celebrate their love for each other in the presence of all of those who mean the most to them on June 2nd, 2018.
