Joeseph and Andrew...what a beautiful idea to put this album out.
I am so excited for you both. I had my first date with my new love Tom on January 8th 2011! Nice to have such a parallel.
Okay Joe, I will be digging out old photos of my little Joeph from when Mimi watched you. She would be so happy you found "The One".
Be Happy and I look forward to meeting Andrew. I live in Ulster now so Albany is not a bad trip - although Miami Beach would have been a cool destination wedding!
Best Wishes Guys!!!

We are so happy for you. No one deserves
this happiness more than you. When Jodi told me you were getting married I started to cry. Be Happy. Love you. Emily and Stu
Joe and Andrew, Two absolutely awesome men off on life together. I am so happy and hopeful for you both that words cannot fully express how I feel. Wishing you all the best. Quite a selection in the poll for honeymoon destination, guys. Peace and love, Keith

We would love to have all our friends and family celebrate with us, however due to financial constraints, this dinner is invitation only. Click here for restaurant website.
We first met in November 2010 during a relocation surveillance trip Andrew was taking from South Beach, FL to Albany, NY. Andrew soon decided he would relocate and moved to Albany in late December 2010.
Although it wasn't love at first sight, Andrew was very smitten with Joe. Joe was clueless. We went on our first date, January 29, 2011. We went to a comedy dinner club in Saratoga, NY. We talk, laughed and had a great time.
A second date soon followed. We met at the movie theater near Joe's home. We saw, The Kings Speech, and during the movie shared our first kiss.
Soon after, Andrew was beset with medical issues and hospitalization. Joe was supportive, caring and helpful. We were only dating for a few months and love was in the air.
Our first year together was fun, educational and had some shaky moments. We persevered through it and grew to a new level in our relationship. This is not an end to this story, but a beginning. We are blessed to have each other and look forward to our future together.
I grew up in Far Rockaway, New York. The youngest child of Arnold and Ellen Briskin. I have one older sister, Lisa, and close family, Alan and Jan Romm. Growing up in Far Rockaway was fun and troublesome. At the age of 17, I moved to Miami Beach, Florida where I thrived in a new way of life. In 2001, I attended Barry University where I received a BS in Information Technology. I have worked in the technology field since 2003. I have many friends and love ones who have influenced my life. I am eternally grateful to you all.
In 2010 I moved to Albany, New York where I met Joe, my husband. Joe is an amazing man. He has showed me what unconditional love really means. I can't wait for our wedding day and then the rest of our lives.
I was born to loving parents, Joe and Judy Marrantino. I have one younger sister, Julia, who lives in Tampa, Florida. I grew up in Wappingers Falls, New York and attended St. Mary’s grammar school and Our Lady of Lourdes High School. I received a BS in chemistry at Marist College and MAT in science education from Boston University. I taught high school for over 10 years in the New York City area. I currently am a Research Scientist for the New York State Department of Health, Wadsworth Research Center.
I met Andrew, the love of my life, in November 2010. Andrew is such an amazing man, and I am so fortunate to have him in my life. I can hardly wait for our wedding day and am looking forward to building a life together with him.
On July 24, 2011 under the Marriage Equality Act, Same Sex Marriage became legal in the U.S. State of New York.
