Williams, whose mother is from Buffalo, met her hubby-to-be in 2013 while on vacation in Egypt. Jim Skrip, a Buffalo native, was sporting a Sabres t-Shirt, intriguing Vanessa to approach him and ask if he was indeed from WNY.

“You go across the world to find somebody who’s six hours away,” she told US Weekly.
