Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland is a leading lady in city politics, but love made its way into her busy life when she created a Match profile in July 2012.

On April 24th 2015, Ferreras-Copeland traded in her pantsuit for a white wedding gown and said “I do” to the man of her dreams. “I knew he was going to be my husband from those first interactions,” she claims.

Match Success Couple: Jessica and Brian

Match Success Couple: Jessica and Brian

As a single mom for 5 years, I had tried dating and meeting someone, but it was often time consuming and I did not like taking time away from my daughter to try to find out if I was compatible with another. I had given up on dating when a friend told me she had met someone on Match.

I was very anxious regarding trying online dating, but I am so glad I did! I met my now husband on Match.com and feel blessed every day I wake up with him by my side! We messaged and then texted for a month before meeting in person. The first date was at a local coffee shop and then to a museum afterwards. Brian was such a gentleman and was so nervous! It was so adorable and endearing. It also poured the entire day, which I have been told was good luck! I went to hug him goodbye and Brian tried to shake my hand. We laughed so hard about that! He thought he wouldn’t hear from me again, but it had been the most enjoyable date I had ever been on so I called for another. Since that date we have become such great friends and companions. We have grown so much in the last year and I couldn’t be any more excited to have him in my life. His son and my daughter also get along, which is wonderful! He asked me to marry him just before Christmas 2014 and we married on July 11, 2015 at the museum where we had our first date. It was the first wedding held in the space and it was a magical day. On top of all of that, our families get along and are overjoyed for Brian and I and our future ahead!

Match Success Couple: Cabot and Alexia

A Labor Day Wedding: Cabot and Alexia

My wife Alexia and I are happy to be a Match success story, just as my aunt and uncle were. Even though she was two hours late for our first date, I was blown away once we finally met. We also discovered that she had attended Sweet Briar College with my cousin and had a picture of her in her house.

After nearly two years of dating, I knew it was time to ask her to marry me. She being a ballet teacher, I had been roped into playing the role of Father, with her as Mother, in her production of The Nutcracker every year before Christmas. This time, instead of surprising her with a necklace on stage, as Father is scripted to do, I surprised her on one knee with an engagement ring!

Our wedding took place the following year over Labor Day weekend. Our friends and family gathered in a local Episcopal church for the ceremony, then we had our reception at her ballet school. Our honeymoon was in Malta. Off we went to happily ever after!

Match Success Couple: Kelly and Nathaniel

Match Success Couple: Kelly and Nathaniel

Nate and I met on Match.com in May of 2014. He had recently moved to the area and didn’t know many people, and I was growing tired of trying to meet a good man in a bar or other local place, as our city isn’t very big. Read more…
