Fate brought this Michigan girl and California boy together to meet in Switzerland, where they literally “fell” in love on a skydiving expedition.  I can’t think of a better meet / cutest story: finding each other halfway around the world, jumping out of a plane, and actually leaving this trip with a future together. COME […]

I’ve been blessed to be born into quite the last name. Allegra— a verb in the beautiful Italian language “to be happy” is a clear depiction of what I always strive to be. Someday, I believe I’ll get married and have the choice to change my last name. As I am confident I will decide to, I do know one thing is certain — I’ll always be Allegra.

Life could take me many directions, but one promise to myself is to always strive to be happy - with that, we have
Always Allegra.
