Courtney and Mike C.

tied the knot 2013

“We met for the first time at the Parker House in July 2008. Mike was from Staten Island and I’m  a Jersey Girl. We both frequented the Parker House that summer and met upstairs on a Sunday Funday. Mike left to go eat some shrimp 😂 but he found me after and we danced and then hung out in the basement until closing time. What started as a “summer fling” turned into a long lasting relationship of 15 years. We got married in 2013 in Red Bank (was supposed to 2012 but we had to postpone our wedding because of Hurricane Sandy). After living in Hoboken for several years we moved down to Monmouth County and currently live in Aberdeen. We have 2 kids, Connor is 7 and Caroline is 5. We tell them about that summer and how we met and about the Parker House. We have a picture of it hanging in our living room and hope to take them there one day. It reminds us of the best summer we ever had and being young and carefree!

We went back to PH often in our younger days but not as much as we would like these days. We usually rent a beach house in the summer at the Jersey Shore and try to make it over there for lobsters and shrimp on the back porch. ❤️
