Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
Teachers Alyssa and Drew Thiele met online, beginning a love story of learning and growing together. “We were two single teachers who kept ourselves busy but wanted to find love. So, we both turned to the best match making service we knew—the internet,” Alyssa recalls.
For their wedding, guests enjoyed an educational cocktail hour by strolling through the Meeker Homestead Museum, which sits on the same property as the couple’s venue, The Barn at Stratford. Later that evening, for the opening dance, Alyssa—who also is a Jazzercise instructor—and her “Jazzer-girls” really took everyone to school on the dance floor with some upbeat instruction.
