When you got engaged and married: Engaged at the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn on Sept. 23, 2012. Married on Jan. 13, 2013, in Brooklyn, N. Y.

Most memorable date: Just after Elizabeth returned from a semester abroad in the Czech Republic last fall, the couple went to a Build-a-Bear Workshop in Manhattan and made a teddy bear. They named it “Bliz”—a combination of their two names—and still have it at home.

Three words to describe yourselves as a couple: Laughter, Jewish, “Bliz”

What your friends would say about you: Finally. And, usually, they say, “mazel tov.”

Something you’ve always wanted to tell people: Our family had been a bit worried that we got married before graduating college, so we would tell them that we made it!

An anecdote that captures your relationship: BB: One day I came home from work, and I knew that Elizabeth was really stressed out. She had an exam the next morning, and she had been working at her job too. I came home and she was still making dinner, and apologizing for it not being lavish enough. I thought, “Are you kidding me?” I knew what a stressful day she’d had.
