Despite both being in Anesthesia, Jessica and Umberto did not meet due to the field of Medicine. It all began when Umberto accompanied his family to a wedding in Italy prior to entering medical school. While in Italy, Umberto met Jessica’s cousin who was also in attendance. He happened to grow up with Umberto’s family in Toronto and knew them very well. Years later, this cousin would contact Umberto while visiting Jessica for the holidays in Michigan. His ultimate goal was to introduce the two. After numerous text conversations, Jessica and Umberto would finally arrange a first date. The chemistry between them was strong, but at the time Umberto was living in Michigan, while Jessica was living in Nashville completing her nursing degree. Even through long distance, the two managed to develop a good friendship, which later developed into a beautiful relationship once Jessica moved back home.
Currently, Umberto is living in Northville while completing his Anesthesiology residency and fellowship at the University of Michigan. Jessica resides in Clinton Township and will graduate from Oakland University’s Nurse Anesthetist program this December. Over the past four years, the couple has been balancing the stress of work with trying to find time for each other. The majority of their time outside of the hospital is spent with family and friends. They greatly enjoy traveling, live sporting events, and searching the best new restaurants to try. They are very excited to start their journey as husband and wife and look forward to the new adventures they will embark on together! They chose to take the engagement pictures in Downtown Northville on a beautiful fall day and how cute are those hats? 🙂
