Maria and Casey first met in 2000, during their freshman year of college. Maria told Casey, a saxophonist in a band, that she was a singer and he suggested she sing with them sometime. Their paths, however, didn't cross again till senior year, when a friend called and asked Maria to audition for the band—at Casey's insistence. "I couldn't believe he remembered me!" she says. "I went, and we started dating a few weeks later. I even 'guested' with the band a few times."
For their wedding, Maria wore a Valentino Sposa gown from Pronovias.
