How I Met My Husband...Our Story

Alki and I in Greece by our Pool.





This is one of my most requested posts and I'm glad I finally got around to writing about it, so here we go.

I would like to begin my story with a few pages from a book ' My Psychic Stories '.  Before Alki went on his business trip to America where he then met me, he saw one of London's Tops Psychics, Jayne Wallace.  He had no idea what he was about to be told and then actually happen.
www.psychicsisters.co.uk
( FYI- If you're in the UK, in Selfridges near the book area, Jayne has a psychic reading area )




Please know, I am not glamorizing any of what happened above before I met Alki.  The fact is, If there aren't any problems in someones relationship, there is no need for a person to leave their partner. The fact that everything went down the way it did is self explanatory; unfortunate, but meant to be the way it is.


Jayne and I became great friends. And when it came time to get married, I knew I wanted to have her be one of my bridesmaids in my wedding. After all, she did bring us together. Well, Alki's father did, but she delivered the message :)



Where It All Began For Me.

3 years ago in April 2009 I had just gotten out of a pretty bad 3 year relationship ( I'm a relationship type of girl ).  It wasn't an easy breakup and didn't get better after we ended it either, but thats a whole other story.


It was about May, maybe June 2009 and I was downtown in the  Fashion District ( I was living in NY at the time ) shopping for fabric to make some bikinis at home. A good friend of mine who lives between Florida and New York was in town visiting for  a few days and happened to be a few blocks from where I was having a lunch meeting and told me to come by.  So I finished up at the fabric store, got in my car and drove to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel where my friend was having lunch. As I walked in I spotted my friend and this man at the table, my friend saw me and waved me to come over.  I gave my friend a hug and then he introduced me to Alki; "Jen this is Alki, we may be working on a  project together".  There stood Alki, Grown ( as in Grown ass man ), clean shaven, salt and pepper hair, in a grey suit dressed to a T, he stuck out his hand and said with his British Accent ( he is however Greek ) " Hello Jennifer, it's very nice to meet you". I remember exactly how I felt when we shook hands, and as we made eye contact... THE MOMENT we made eye contact and shook hands I KNEW he was THE ONE.  Something inside told me " OMG this is the man I am going to marry" !!! I almost didn't know how to feel. I never had this feeling before.  I mean of course when you have a boyfriend you talk about marriage and having babies , but this was different, this was real.  I suddenly had this war going off in my head saying "Are you F*cking crazy, You just got out of a 3 year relationship and don't even know this guy, don't say things you don't mean". LOL I swear this is what was going on in my head as I sat down to have a quick bite to eat.
I got so nervous, I didn't even have an appetite and I didn't want to eat anything that I would risk getting something stuck in my teeth and not realize it. On top of that, I was in leggings, uggs and a white t-shirt ( I still have the same outfit I wore, I refuse to throw it away ), I had barely any makeup on, just SO NOT the way you want to look when you meet your future husband.


Alki was catching a flight  that night back to London where he was living a the time. He asked for my info to keep in touch, but I was so nervous I gave him only my email address. LOL
He emailed me that evening before he boarded his flight. He said exactly this,  "Things are going to get very complicated very soon".  At the time I had no idea what that meant but it wasn't long before I found out.


Alki and I had kept in touch, and yes I finally gave him my phone number. He would Skype me during the day from his office in London showing me around and putting all of his employees on camera. He was like no one I had ever met. He was funny, charming, smart and a bad ass BOSS!!!!  I would text him pictures of me making the "kissy" face. It was a new facial expression for him and he loved it. He too sent me the "kissy face" pictures which I still have today.


The next week I was working everyday during Market week in NYC modeling shoes. Alki told me he wanted to fly back to NY to see me since I would already be working in the city everyday I could come and meet him when I got out for dinner. I didn't know what to think. We had definitely gotten to know each other a lot better in the 2 weeks since he had been to NY but I never met someone who wanted to go so far out of their way just for ME!  So the following week he came and after work I went over to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and met him in the lobby.  He had reservations all booked at the amazing restaurant at the hotel,so we walked in and were seated at a booth over looking Manhattan.  I don't remember what we were talking about but all of a sudden, in this fine restaurant he started drawing a penis on the table cloth.... and so I turned around and put my favorite sexual "character" on the table clothes as well. We both signed our names under our drawing and walked out. I was dying... I had really met someone as funny, free spirited and even more crazy than me. We just had so much fun together and the way he looked at me, the smile on his face- I knew he loved me.
Always having fun together!! I got him so good here!


2 days later Alki flew back to London.  He wanted to take our relationship to the next level but mentally I just wasn't ready.  After getting out of a bad relationship especially when it didn't end good, it's hard to just jump into another relationship. I was 24, an adult and I just wanted to be free and live my life without having to answer to anyone for a change.  I KNEW I would end up with Alki. I knew we would get married, But I needed to be fair to myself and to him, and at that point in my life I couldn't give him 100% and for me, its all or nothing.
We will be together soon

Since the moment Alki and I met and started "dating" and talking regularly we were both always 100% honest. Its the best way to be, because then you dont have to worry about covering your tracks and you can be and feel completely free.. and quite frankly, at that point I had nothing to lose. I told him exactly how I felt and he understood, but he was relentless. He literally followed me all over the US. If I traveled to Miami, he would meet me there, when I was in NY- even if I couldn't see him or I was busy he would show up at my house anyway... He was pretty much obsessed. He admits it and says how unhealthy it was for him. He literally couldn't work because all he wanted to do was be with me and the fact that he couldn't killed him. I was most definitely playing hard to get, but not to be a bitch but because I needed time to be alone before I got into my last relationship ever! I didn't feel bad, I needed to do what I needed to do.

He got my name tattooed before we were even engaged!!!
We have matching ' Have Faith ' Tattoos on our wrists.

Long story short, we dated, we traveled together , he took me to Greece for the first time, showed me "his" Island, I met his kids and could totally see my life with him forever.  4 months since we met,  about Late September I remember giving Alki a call. He was in London at that time. I told him exactly this... " I think I'm ready to take our relationship to the next level. I took the summer and did what I needed to do and my mind and head are completely clear and Im ready to give you 100%".  SILENCE..... Nothing but SILENCE... Finally he said " OK, I agree, Ill come to see you tomorrow Im booking my flight now".  I couldn't wait to see him.

The next day he landed in NY. He asked me to come get him but he landed in the middle of NYC Rush hour traffic and I decided to call him a car service instead ( such a bitch ).  He arrived at my house pretty late. He said hello to my family ( which he had already met a few times ) before they went to bed and then him and I watched some TV together while he ate. We then walked upstairs to my old bedroom/ guest room ( I had 2  bedrooms) where I grew up in and where we would spend the night; all of my dolls were still in the cabinets. We shut off all the lights, got into bed and shortly after Alki placed a box on my stomach.   My stomach dropped, I think I went numb and I was short of breath. I sat up immediately and asked "What is this !" I wouldn't even touch the box. In the back of my mind I knew what it was, Alki is crazy like that and after only 4 months of knowing each other I knew he was crazy enough to do something like this. When he knows what he wants, he gets it!  He said "open it", but I couldn't. He pulled out a flashlight,  shined it on the box and opened  it. There , in the tiny red box was an ENORMOUS DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING!!! The biggest I had ever seen in my life. I couldn't believe my eyes. Alki had asked me a few months ago what style ring I liked and all I said was " Round ", not thinking anything especially after 4 months!!!  He did this ALL ON HIS OWN, and he did SO GOOD!!! Back to the story... As the flashlight hit the diamond ring in my pitch black bedroom, it made all kinds of shapes of light reflecting all over my walls and ceiling. He then started telling me exactly how he felt since the moment he met me, how he had never felt this way and how things had NEVER felt so right. With the diamond ring still in the box, and my jaw still on the floor I was in shock. He didn't actually come out and say "Will you marry me" so I wasn't really sure what I was suppose to do. He then told me to put it on, so I did, and it fit perfect!  The only thing I remember myself saying was " Oh My God, Oh My God ".
My ring


My Ring



I don't remember how the rest of the evening went but I do remember waking up and double checking my ring finger to see if this had actually happened. It was real, this had happened and I was engaged !!! The next morning when I told my mom Alki had proposed, she wasn't entirely shocked because she knew how much Alki loved me and knew how I felt about him, but when she saw the ring she couldn't believe her eyes... No one could. The only problem was that not many of my friends or family had actually met alki. Some of my closest friends knew about an him, and my mom, step dad and brother  had actually met him a few times, but when my mom and I made phone calls to our family the first things out of their mouthes was " She's engaged... to WHO ?"  LOL . It was sort of awkward but a time to celebrate. That afternoon we met my father for lunch, it was the first time my dad had actually met Alki in person, but he knew all about him from my mom and I!
 The news spread like wild fire around my town that I was engaged to a "Billionaire" and that my ring cost "more than a Lamborghini ". It was pretty funny.
We had a long engagement and married almost 2 years later in May 2011.

We were actually engaged here lol

We quickly went back to Greece to celebrate, then to London then back to NY. I packed my things and in October 2009 we moved to California.  We didn't have a home yet so we stayed at the L'Ermitage in Beverly Hills for 2 months while we shopped for our dream house. We finally found it, and in December 2009 we moved in, right before Christmas. Along with the excitement of moving into a DREAM House, Alki also surprised me with my DREAM CAR- a brand new 2010 Convertible Bentley GTC SPEED !!!! My life was and still is, my Dream!!!

Our Home

Still to this day Alki opens all doors for me and treats me like a princess.  We have the best relationship I have ever had, and he has ever had!! We continue to make communication a key component in our relationship. If something bothers us, or we are feeling a certain way, we talk about it.  We never keep secrets- unless its to plan a surprise party for the other, and we always make alone time a priority. My favorite thing to do is to be just Alki and I. I look forward to the evenings and weekends where we get to be alone and do whatever, even if it's nothing at all.

I Love him so much

A relationship is without a doubt hard work. But if the person is worth it, you enjoy putting in your all for the relationship.
Hands always on my goodies. At least he loves them ;)

Alki is my best friend, my soul mate... He  is my everything. Our relationship may not be conventional but there is no book of rules on LOVE. We LOVE each other more than anything, and respect each other completely. To me, he is the most handsome, kind, caring person I know. He is willing to help anyone, he's smart, charming, sometimes crazy and has the most addicting laugh I have ever heard. He is also sloppy, forgetful, stubborn at times, but when you love someone, you love ALL of them, good bad, ugly and sad.
He adores me , and I adore him <3

I love him when he farts, when he burps, and when he stinks up the bathroom. I love him when he forgets to get me a card for my birthday, and christmas and valentines day and our 1 year anniversary LOL. I love him when he snores, steals all of the blankets while we sleep, and when he leaves a trail of clothing in the bedroom to the bathroom and repeatedly walks over it without picking anything up. I love him when he messes up my clean kitchen, leaves banana peels on the counter when the garbage is right there and when he yells "where are my keys" EVERY SINGLE MORNING without fail! I think about him every second, of every minute of every day. I get so excited when I hear his car pull through the gate that I run down the stairs like a little kid to meet him at the door!!!

He loves my butt too :)


Most people see our relationship from the outside looking in. I get how people can judge us and assume certain things. But 3 years later ( in LA thats like 15 years LOL) we are still going strong and have no end in sight. I see us growing old together like all of my grandparents are. I always said " I want a Notebook movie kind of love".  Im very traditional at heart, and when I said "till death do us part" I meant it.
On our 1 year anniversary . I love you baby






Alki, I Love you without knowing how, or when or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way.

xoxo
Jennifer

For those of you who have not seen our Wedding Video <------ click here !
I give a lot of credit for my life, the way I am, and the things I have in my life to the book
 'The Secret'. Its more about the way of thinking and the law that you can dream or think whatever it is you want into existence . Ask and you shall receive .






ps. For all of you who believe in psychics, Jayne truly is one of the best. My first reading with her was done over the phone since she is in the UK. She has clients all over the world. If you've been thinking of getting a reading done, give her a call. She hit the nail right on the head with me, and this was before we even met.
Let her know I sent you... She will change your life, give you hope and I know you will love her.

    1. HI Tiffany. I just added her contact info. If you're int he UK you can go see her at Selfridges. If not, she does readings over the phone like I first did with her. Check the post again, I updated it with her info.
      In 2009, after my breakup I really hit a low. I was 24 and decided to get my first tattoo ever. I needed something inspirational to get me out of the funk I was in. Have Faith seemed appropriate and reminded to do just that; Have Faith...

      I sent a picture to Alki of my wrists and he went in London and got the same tattoos on his wrists.
      It wasn't long after I started my swimwear line, Have Faith Swimwear :)

    1. Awwww LOL thank you.. Alki was married before we met. Before he came to the US for business he had left his wife and moved out- literally days apparently. Its very sad- but everything happens for a reason. But know, he didn't just leave bc a psychic told him to, there were issues there. Alki and I have been trying to have a baby fro a year now. It's just taking time. I turned 27 in february of this year so Im still quite young. By the time I'm 28, if I still did not conceive naturally, we will go to the Dr. Its just Alkia nd I know knew each other for 4 months before we got engaged, so this time we are taking to just be him and I and get to know each other on every level. I want to make sure our marriage is the best it can be before bringing a baby into it.
      I want 3 children. First I pray for a girl since he has 2 boys already. I will name her either Jianna Joanne Dimitra David, or Sophia Marcella Dorothy David. If I have a boy, it will be Nikolas Alkiviades David :) LOL

  35. WOW! Great but i dont believe all that stuff. He is 45 years or something with one divorce and 2 children and you are a gorgerous woman 28 years old i think. You did it for money, every girl in your shoes would do exactly the same, because we all want fucking money and a great life!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Alki is 44 and I am 27.
      Having money is a plus, but does not create the foundation in which I live my life, choose/ chose my man or thrive on. I would not be able to travel as much as I do, to the places I do with someone I did not love. I don't care how rich someone is- there is no way you could spend every hour and every day with someone you could not stand in places you don't know anyone but that person.
      I moved out of my moms house that I grew up in having never lived on my own, across the country to a place I had barely any friends and NO family with a man I only knew for 4 months.

      I love how people always think its about the girl being after a mans money. The truth is, even if I was his age , people would think the same thing, so of course he wants a young hot wife. Did you ever think to yourself, "man- he is with her only because she is pretty and has a good body?" Do you think if I was 300 lbs ugly Alki would have looked at me?

      People will always think what they want and thats fine, at the end of the day Alki and I know our love for one another is true. My husband is NOT a stupid man, if he thought I was after his money he wouldn't be with me. Just saying

  36. Hi Jen. I also love the book the secret. I actually just finished reading the follow up book the power today. I was just wondering how you used the secret to create the amazing life you have now? You're such an inspiration! Thanks in advance.

    1. Each person in life wants different things. I think its in our genes to want certain things, to look a certain way and so on. I knew I always wanted a big wedding while my girlfriend wants to elope. I knew I always wanted to live in a big beautiful house and marry a european man while others may not want that. I just knew what I wanted and because I was so sure and believed it would happen, it did.
      I used to work at a high end hair salon in my home town. I would always look at the beautiful older woman with their huge diamond rings, fur coats, amazing jewelry and fancy cars, it fascinated me; I wanted that. I dreamt of what it would be like to be int heir situation. I pictured me being those woman, going to the salon to get my hair done with my big ring and fancy car and how the assistants there would marvel at me...
      I love the movie The Notebook. I always wanted to find a man who was head over heals in love with me. I love how the movie ended, the husband would never give up on his wife; I wanted that.
      And I think its knowing what you want in life and believing you'll have it that it actually comes true.
      Inspiration boards are great. Try making one with everything you want in life. Your dream house, dream car, perfect man, perfect body and so on. This should help a lot :)

  42. Amazing post!

    It has nothing to do with the post, but could you answer these questions about your dental veneers? :) I'm considering getting them, but there is not much info out there, except on the dentists own websites.

    1. Do you have veneers on all your teeth? Did they file down your original teeth completely? How was the process like? Do you regret doing it, why did you choose to do it?

    2. How has it been living with them, do you eat food and drink the same way? Have you had any "touch-ups" on them since you had them done? Do they look the same now as they did when they were new? Did the dentist tell you anything about how long they'd last? Please share everything about the whole process you think might be interesting!

    xoxo <3

    1. Hey Vanessa
      Yes, I have Veneers, I havent doen a post on them yet because I wasn't happy with the shape of my top teeth. They were way too big for my mouth. But I just got them reshaped a few days ago and plan on doing a post soon.
      It is so worth it. My teeth before were fine but i ALWAYS wanted veneers and loved the look of them.
      Yes, the filed down all of my teeth, I have 12 o the top and 10 on the bottom. ( The " Vinateg Me" post shows my smile before I had veneers, or any work done at all ).

      2 I initially got them right before my wedding, your an see in my video how big they are, they weren't very feminine. You can eat almost the same but must take care. was told they last about 10-20 years. Will do a post on them. :)

  43. Wow, What a beautiful love story... Not everyone in this world is as lucky to meet there soul mate... I only know, about you, what i read in your blogs and it is easy to see the passion and unconditional love that you share with Alki.. i am fortunate to say that i too share the same relationship with the man that i love, Not really the conventional style relationship... sure we might be 22 years apart and people may sometimes stare at us and wonder or even worse.. ask me if he is my father (????? SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO CLASS!!!) Besdes all of that we love eachother and we have a connection that cannot be denied. It was really nice reading your story =) thanks for sharing

  49. GO #TEAMJENNIFER!!! I totally love your blog and most of all I adore that you possess the ultimate female power which is ''knowing what you want out of life'' and not settling because many women do! They ''pretend'' as if they know what they want yet they settle for sleeping with men they know won't even help them change a flat tire! Like, Seriously! Many women, especially American women, have it terribly bad wasting their youthful good looks on loser ass men then they reach 30 or older and complain about not being married! No! If you are in your 20's your main focus should be what YOU want and not what a guy is willing to just throw at you! Your 20's is the most powerful decade where you really can set a high value on your worth when it comes to dating/relationships. Youth is POWER and I am sure that Alki LOVED that you were so young, beautiful, and super full of life and not all ''used'' up! So what?, if women assume you are a gold digger? They are just jealous that the guy they are screwing would NEVER adore you like your husband does yet they are STILL stuck on giving it up for FREE! So glad you got the ROCK girl! It looks stunning on you! Good luck in life and I wish you and your Alki well gorgeous! xoxo

  85. Jennifer, this is such an amazing blog entry! I am so happy that you and Alki found eachother. This really is romantic! :)

    I do want to ask tho.. since he is rich do you ever have haters out there that call you a golddigger and such?? It is so obvious you are not and from reading this anyone can tell that you 2 really are in Love. But you know people love to talk shit! lol
    How do you handle these accusations???
    Do you just blow it off??
    I am just wondering because I to am in a relationship where my bf has a lot of money and a lot of people think I am with him for it but that is not the case. And this really depresses me sometimes. So do you have any tips on how to handle this??
    Thank you :)

  92. Ok, I just read all the replies to make sure I don't waste your time asking you something already posted. I absolutely loved the part where you said he shined a flashlight on it and is casted all these sparkles on the walls I could just imagine how awesomely magical that looked. So I gotta ask just how big is that rock??!! Holy geez!!!

    Also, you mentioned you knew everything you wanted and created story boards etc. how did that proposal match up?? How did u imagine it? and was that how Alki imagined proposing to you??

    thanks luv - look forward to continuing reading your blog it literally re-inspired me xoxo :)

  95. I really enjoyed reading this post. It's very rare people meet their soulmates and you are lucky to have Alki. I have followed your blog and instagram for a while now and see that you are someone who lives life to the fullest and follows their dream. Keep doing what you do !

  96. Hey Jennifer! I loved your post as always :) such a lovely story to tell your kids one day! I've been following your guys story since you used to broadcast on JTV like 2 years ago or something now (that makes me sound like a creepy stalker lady but I'm not, promise ahahaha)! It's been nice to watch your relationship develop, and see you as a person grow from your first bikini line, to where you are now! I adore yours and Lilys's blogs and twitter pics and such! I hate that people judge you based on looks and Alki's money..it has nothing to do with love and happiness! <3 My boyfriend is nearly 8 years older than me, and it is amazing because he has that mature side to him that I needed, but is still young and playful!
    Your such a sweetheart and as always I look forward to more blogs! <3 laura

  98. Hi Jen,

    I knew you used the Secret! I do too... it works. And Kevin Trudeau's "Your wish is your command". I knew you used it because of "have faith".... that's essentially the secret to manifesting your desires. Thanks for sharing the backstory to how you and Alki met each other!! that's so synchronistic! I'm working on manifesting a man like that right now :)

    As for getting pregnant, have you tried herbs or acupuncture? Red raspberry leaf tea daily (iced or hot!) is a great uterine tonic for preparing to get pregnant... natural family planning method (just google it, and there's books) is great for knowing when you're fertile, and books by Ina May Gaskin (the midwife) are wonderful for understanding the spiritual side of calling in babies and birthing. I'm an herbalist and a doula, haven't had my own yet but I will soon!

    also- just wondering if you have any hair salon/colorist recommendations- I travel for work and am going to be in LA/Santa Monica next week- I prefer organic/chemical free if possible - can you recommend a good hair stylist/colorist/salon here? There are a zillion !

    xoxo

  105. Hi Jennifer!!

    This has nothing to do with the post, but: what size are you in Isabel Marant sneakers? I'm about to order, but have to order quickly as they get sold out within days! Are they small in size? Which size are you in Louboutins and YSL's to compare?

  114. I can honestly say that I am jelaous of you but in a "good" way, if man cay say. It is always inspirational and positive to see that people can really lead this kind of life and share it with TRUE LOVE. I just hope I will find My Man as well. I broke up with my boyfriend almost exact same time when you broke up with yours, but I haven't been blessed yet to meet my The One.

    May I contact Jayne and say that I know about her from you? Or should I say something else?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Jennifer!!

    Your story just took my breath away..just beautiful! I have been following you for about a year now!! My girlfriend and I just love you! We resemble you in alot of ways..and everytime we post a pic of ourselves and it resembles your beauty ...we will comment under it and say "stano'd" lol! I watched your Wedding video and i couldnt help but shed a few tears...the look of love in your eyes is so pure...and it shows that this man has changed your life!
    Im with the man i love, and we recently had a baby...im a girl around your age with BIG dreams..but have had to put my life on hold for my daughter, and finding the strength to fulfill my dreams can really be challenging....
    I just recently started up my own company...im a makeup artist, eyelash artist & nail tech, and im opening up a boutique with new and loved clothing & accessories...ive also been designing swim suits in my private books for quite some time....
    What advice can you give a girl like me...with again, big dreams..a big heart and alot of ambition...with the success you've had...And the person you are...i would SO appreciate any words of advice you can give me!
    I went to a pyschic awhile ago and she told me things that could potentiaally change my life,and since then ive been such a believer in psychics, and now especially after reading your story!
    Jen, thanks for sharing your life with us...
    You've once again inspired me to keep on keepin on!
    I look forward to hearing back from you!!
    Much Love

  117. Wow I just stumbled across your blog and I have to say it deff was something I "attracted" I am a firm believer in the secret too I'm trying to get my boyfriend to change his way of thinking to be more positive but asides from that amazing romance story, I'm in the process of creating mine as well !!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Most beautiful story ever Jennifer & you are totally gorgeous wow! Gobsmacked by your beauty! You're so inspirational and optimistic it's very admirable! I love following your blog and instagram account you inspire me to hit the gym thats for sure! haha <3 xx

  119. This is so sweet Jen! Don't pay attention to the haters. You & Alki are perfect together! x

    ReplyDelete
  120. I am so glad you did this post. I think it would have made half the haters shut up, as for the other half, well jealousy is a curse.
    I dont see the big deal in the age difference, I personally think once your over 25 then anything under 20 years isn't a big deal. I know you met him when you were young but you also sounded a lot more mature then your average 22? year old.
    I'm sure his money attracted you to him, the same way your looks would have attracted him to you however feelings can't be faked. You both are obviously very smart, he didn't become a billionaire from being dumb and you must be switched on to run a successful business so you would both know if the other was after something else. Your very lucky to have found each other and I wish you only the best!
    I am curious though, did he tell his friend what the psychic said? And how long did he wait to tell you what she said?

    I love your blogs Jenn!! Especially the daily mirror pictures, you have such amazing taste and even though you have a banging body your not all about boobs and bum!! - money cant buy class.

    I would love a blog about how you started your business, met Lilly etc.

    Keep smiling! Jealousy is an ugly quality and there will always be haters. Love your work, keep it up.

    Ash. Xx
