Jessica and Josh


How We Met

We are both professional game designers and we met at the University of California in Santa Cruz when we were studying game development there. We’ve been together for 4 years and it’s been the most incredible and magical 4 years of my life.

how they asked

I recreated a scene from a game we played early on in our relationship called Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.


In this section of the game players can see the wishes of some of the characters in the game world. You can read a little more here if you like.


I made three wish stars for her to read just like in the game. A funny wish from our little doggie, one of her own, and mine. After telling her how much I love and adore her, and how I could never live life without her, I led her into our backyard where everything was setup…



My wish came true! <3
