Ben & Ellie
Sep 1, 2018 Newport RI
HE HAD HER AT "WHARTON"
Ben and Ellie met in Israel on May 11, 2011, the happiest day of the year. The entire country had taken to the streets to dance, sing and celebrate Israel's 63rd Independence Day.
As fate would have it, Ben and Ellie ended up at the same rooftop party in Tel Aviv. Ellie, joined by her best friend Oriane, wanted to leave after 30 minutes ("this party looks like a graduation party. What's with the plastic cups?"). Luckily, Oriane was smart enough to convince her to stay ("It'll take us hours to get to any other party tonight!"). Meanwhile, Ben was partying with his buddy Kfir, having a grand old time (because who really cares about plastic cups?!).
Ellie, who had finally made peace with the party, started dancing and (of course!) immediately lost Oriane. It wasn't until she heard her friend calling her name that she looked up and saw Ben, a handsome stranger who couldn't take his eyes off her! Oriane graciously introduced them and from that moment on they were inseparable.
Yes. This is how it happened.
