Wes to Wed: A Valentine’s Day Special II

Pair-of-Northern-Cardinal-in-a-tree

Happy Valentine’s Day, folks! Here’s the second and final installment of “Wes to Wed.” The overwhelming positive feedback this series has gotten makes me hopeful that our Wesleying readers are not so cynical after all. Hopefully this feature series can continue in future years as we cast our net wider and can share the stories of many different kinds of WesCouples.

For a WesCouples overload, you can check out this “Wes-Side story” on Wesconnect that includes pictures from this feature series, a ’98 Alumni Magazine article, and pictures from this flickr stream. Check out the stories of more lovely couples after the jump: 

Wes to Wed: A Valentine’s Day Special

1128-800

Wesleyan alums go on to do many things, one of which is to marry their college sweethearts. For a Valentine’s Day special, I reached out to these WesCouples to briefly get their stories on how they met and transitioned to the “real world” post-college. Some of them are now parents to current Wes students (and are worried this post will be embarrassing), or hope that their newborns will be someday. Their first meetings (hallmates in the Butts; SOC pre-frosh orientation) and frequent date spots (WesWings..) will be familiar and heartwarming for most of us.

Look forward to a second installment of WesCouples on Valentine’s Day. Read about their lovely stories after the jump:
