Lucky and Hopey first met at a pet shop where Lucky was working. Months later, while Lucky was bouncing the door at the X Party, Hopey walked in and they struck up some chitchat. The next time that Hopey came into the pet shop, Lucky invited her over for dinner, and their love has grown steadily since. Besides their careers in veterinary medicine and mangement, Lucky does freelance photography and Hopey plays guitar in her band, The Pretty Boys. Together, they concoct homemade food for their dogs, Coal and Ozzy. The couple is “enGAYged,” and will exchange vows in August. Their secret: “Passionate sex and passionate glances, soft kisses and patience.”
