Jamie and Will swiped right. After connecting through Tinder in 2013, the two met at the Crab Shell in Stamford for their first date soon after. They’ve been together ever since.

On a trip to the Cranberry Festival in Nantucket in October of 2017, Will surprised his wife-to-be by popping the question on Madaket Beach, just a stone’s throw from her family’s summer house. Better yet, Will’s parents surprised them on the island to celebrate the announcement.

Jamie and Mark were married at St. Luke’s Parish in Darien where Will, as a child, had been actively involved in the church’s youth group. The reception followed at the Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, where the couple danced blissfully through the night in the company of family and friends.

Jamie is the daughter of Scott and Jennifer Anderson of Westport. She received a B.S. degree in physiology and neurobiology from the University of Connecticut, and a master’s degree in biochemistry and neuropharmacology from Drexel College of Medicine. She is a healthcare analyst at Remedy Partners in Norwalk.

Mark is the son of Mark and Joan Bergen of Rowayton. He graduated with a B.A. degree in political science from Gettysburg College, and works in wealth management for Parametric Risk Advisors in Westport.

After a honeymoon in New Zealand and Bora Bora, the couple settled in Stamford.
