Taylor Tomasi and Johnathan Hill (known affectionately as Chase) first laid eyes on each other when a mutual friend brought Chase along to a decidedly unglamorous teenage get-together held in Taylor's mother's home in Dallas. "My mom knew after a brief conversation with him that he was the one for me," says Taylor, "but I just brushed her off." She was in eighth grade, after all. But four years later, they began a 13-year love affair that took them from the cozy confines of Dallas to the edgier streets of Brooklyn, New York.
