Jamie Friedman and Michael Lagoyda

Although Jamie and Michael went to the same high school and had mutual friends, they somehow
avoided an introduction until a decade after they graduated, when they stumbled upon each other at a Halloween party.

Jamie was dressed as a deviled egg, which must have been Michael’s favorite food because he followed her around all night (much to Jamie’s annoyance). Michael had a chance to make a better impression a year later at a friend’s engagement party and took Jamie out on their first date on November 17, 2009.
