the nest real couples Photo: The Nest

Status: Married June 21, 2013

Careers: They’re both attorneys, but they practice different areas of law. “It’s great to have a partner who understands your career, but we try not to ‘talk ship’ when we get home.”

How They Met: The two met in law school in 2003 and quickly became each other’s “one that got away.” They finally started ddating eight years later.

Guilty Pleasures: Sleeping in on the weekends, Brazilian barbecue, and good wine and whiskey

Baby Clock: They’re expecting their first this year.

Nicknames: “We don’t have any…yet. Guess we need to work on those!”

Wine and a Wedding: For their first date, Troy took Maya on a weekend wine tasting trip to Santa Barbara, California. They loved the locale so much, they ended up having their wedding there two years later!

Hobbies: When they’re not reading or enjoying a good movie, these two are traveling. They most recently went to Costa Rica and are planning a babymoon to Rome and Venice, Italy. “We try to fit in a trip at least every other month.”
