Jerry Maguire may have had his great love at “hello,” but management consultant Peter Ostrega nabbed his with just one syllable. “Hi,” read the entirety of his OkCupid message to Samantha Angelo, a clarinetist with the Marine Corps band—and it worked. She clicked through his photos and was instantly smitten with his “kind eyes and curious smile,” she says. “I’d never felt that way just by looking at someone.” There was one red flag, albeit minor: The site placed their compatibility, based on answers to a series of questions, at exactly zero. But two years of blissful dating later, that statistic was proven wildly inaccurate when Samantha
accepted Peter’s proposal during a trip to St. John.
Six months later, on July 13, 2013, the duo returned, along with 27 of their family and friends, to get married in the courtyard of a private villa at sunset.
