Who We Are And How We Met {Featured Bride, Jessi M.}

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...
