  Dr. and Mrs. John Tessier of Town & Country are pleased to announce the engagement of their son, Steven John Tessier, to Nicole Hunt, daughter of Ms. Terri DeSio of Fort Worth, Texas.

        The future groom is a 2001 graduate of

De Smet Jesuit High School. He earned a bachelor’s of communication and a minor in business at Marist College in 2006 and is employed by DePuy Johnson and Johnson as an orthopedic sales representative.

    The bride-to-be received a bachelor’s of social work from the University of Mississippi in 2004 and a master’s of social work from Saint Louis University in 2005. She currently works as a medical social worker at Albert Pujols Wellness Center for Adults with Down Syndrome at St. Luke’s Hospital.

    Nicole and Steven met on E-Harmony and went on their first date in June 2009. One year later, he suggested a stroll in Forest Park with their dogs. When they reached the Grand Basin, Steven dropped to one knee. The couple celebrated later that evening with family and friends at Tony’s and the Four Seasons. Following a May wedding in St. Louis, the newlyweds will cruise the Mediterranean, with stops in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Monaco and Spain.  LN
