On their first date, Jamie and Will learned they shared much in common. They both grew up in Fairfield County in similar circles—likely attending the same high school parties. But the two didn’t meet until after college, through the dating app Tinder. After four years as a couple, Will proposed to Jamie at Madaket Beach, near her family’s home on Nantucket. The pair celebrated on the beach with family as the sun set on the horizon.

Rev. David Anderson officiated at the ceremony at St. Luke’s Parish in Darien. The reception followed at the Belle Haven Club.

The bride, daughter of Scott and Jennifer Anderson of Westport, graduated from Greens Farms Academy and University of Connecticut. She received her master’s from Drexel College of Medicine. Jamie is a healthcare analyst for Remedy Partners in Norwalk.

The groom, son of Mark and Joan Bergen of Rowayton, graduated from Fairfield Prep and Gettysburg College. Mark works in wealth management for Parametric Risk Advisors in Westport.

The newlyweds honeymooned in New Zealand and Bora Bora. They call Stamford home.
