The Love Story: Who we are and how we met. 4/23/2010 Featured Bride Jessi M., Wedding Location: Wolf Lake, MN | Wedding Date: August 7, 2010
Who we are: About the Bride:
Jessica Lynn Mostad (Foss!) - I was born and raised in Langdon, ND, and am the oldest of four siblings. I went to college at Northern State in Aberdeen, SD where I played basketball. I then attended law school at UND, where I met Sean. About the Groom:
Sean Thomas Foss (Mostad!) was born and raised in Bismarck, North Dakota. He went to college at UND where he met me and his life was irrevocably changed. Three and a half years later, Sean decided it was changed for the better, and proposed (after my dad said he can't give me back when Sean asked his permission!).
How we met: The scene:
Grand Forks, North Dakota watering hole, January 2006 The players
: Sean and friends, two of whom attend UND's Law School with me. Me and my friends, several of whom also attend the Law School. The spark:
Supplied by a third-party. As our two groups of friends mix, my friends, who had met Sean the previous summer, mentioned what an outstanding young man they took him to be. I see the curly hair and bulky sweater, and am far from impressed. Nonetheless, I have to get to know what all the fuss is about this boy. The meeting:
I approached Sean as subtly as I could, repeatedly announced that I could "work him" in a fight, and preceded to initiate a bicep flex-off (again, I have to see what all the fuss is about). While I couldn't do anything about the curly hair, I had to see what was under the sweater. With embarrassingly little prompting, Sean pulled out his arm. We stood back-to-back, each flexed, and the rest is history. To be continued...
