What to Know

  • The newlyweds met at Clifton High School back in 1989
  • They went their separate ways but kept in touch and ultimately started dating again in 2016
  • They married Saturday at the locker where they first locked eyes

Two high school sweethearts from New Jersey returned to where they first met decades ago to exchange wedding vows this weekend.

Chris Gash and Jenn Sudol walked down the aisle, that is, the halls of Clifton High School, on Saturday.

The couple married in front of the same lockers where they first locked eyes as high school freshman back in 1989.

“There’s a lot of, you know, ducks to get in a row, and then the snow almost stopped it from happening,” Gash said, referring to the dual nor’easters this past week.

“Never mind the 29 years before that,” Sudol said.

The newlyweds say they dated briefly back in high school but then went their separate ways.

The two of them kept in touch over the years and finally started dating again in 2016.

“I can’t believe we made it,” Gash said.
