For those seeking warmth, inspiration and romance, we present images of local couples on their special day. The stories of how they met, fell in love and were married take us from Plum Island to Punta Cana, but they all have something in common: the Merrimack Valley.
Jackie + Evan
Jackie and Evan were wed at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, Mass. Evan was 19 and Jackie was 21 when they met through their jobs at Market Basket. Both graduated from UMass Lowell. Jackie now works at Fidelity Investments, while Evan works for American Science and Engineering in Billerica. On their special day, Jackie wore a Maggie Sottero dress and Evan donned his paternal grandfather’s handkerchief and carried his maternal grandfather’s ashes in a colored glass heart. The two enjoy participating in many of the same hobbies, including freshwater fishing, autocross, and jiu-jitsu.
