Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

Monday marks the first anniversary of Fran and Sean Stricker, who met at a country concert … and promptly parted ways, presumably never to speak again. “He was too nervous to ask for my number,” Fran recalls. Fortunately, fate had other plans for the couple: they reconnected by happenstance while each were out celebrating New Year’s Eve. “I was so happy to see him,” Fran recalls. “I made sure not to leave until he asked for my number!”

The couple was recently featured in our Real Wedding Wednesday series; check out that post for more photos of the Strickers’ lovely event.
