Charmaine Gomez and Joseph Contreras first met during a dress alteration in his parents’ kitchen. But it would be another couple of years before he gathered the courage to ask her out.
In a way, the story of Charmaine Lopez Gomez and Joseph Alexander Contreras began as a tale of two dresses.
Their mothers, Rizaly Brownfield and Somary Contreras, respectively, had been friends for eight years, yet their children had never met. Ms. Contreras, who was a teacher by day, also is a whiz at all things sewing. So, in May 2012, when Ms. Gomez needed a dress altered for a school dance, she and her mother went to see Ms. Contreras.
“Joseph happened to come downstairs to grab his dog, and I came out of the bathroom in my dress,” said Ms. Gomez, who was then single. “We met eye to eye and smiled at each other while our moms joked that Joseph should take me to prom since I didn’t have a date.”
