Caris and Chandler met at Princeton University when Chandler was a first-year student and she was a prospective student in April of 2015. He had the pleasure of talking to her about one of the Christian ministries on campus. As Caris would say, from that moment whenever she thought of Princeton, she would think of Chandler.
In the fall of 2015, the two reunited through an opportunity to lead musical worship together. During an on-campus Christmas party, Caris and Chandler got to know each other even more and he knew he had to ask her out on a date. Their first date was in January 2016, and the two have been together ever since.
