Jerry Janzen kisses his bride Sara (née Priddey) during their wedding ceremony Monday in Starbucks at Meadow Vale Shopping Centre in Pitt Meadows.
The couple first met at the same coffee shop three years ago to the date, April 22, after Priddey answered Janzen’s Craig’s List singles ad, the first line of which read “A single man’s journey.”
Janzen had no expectations. He was just searching for someone honest and comfortable to hang around with.
That is exactly what he found with Priddey.
“Our first date was actually five hours, because we went from here to The [Jolly] Coachman and just kind of hung out and talked,” said Janzen.
“There were moments of silence, but they were never awkward moments, it was just comfortable.”
Janzen proposed to Priddey on Christmas Day.
It is the second marriage for both of them.
They left for Saltspring Island on Tuesday for a five-day honeymoon.
