See what Mark and BillieJo Partridge, of Lilburn, say about their nicknames for each other.

Congratulations to Mark and BillieJo Partridge, second place winners of Patch's 'Gwinnett's Cutest Couple' contest. Snellville Patch had the chance to learn a little about the couple's history.

Patch: Where did you and Mark meet?

BillieJo: Mark and I met in 1989. I was waitressing at the time and he had come into the resturaunt a few times.  It was not until I recognized him at the gym (Sports Life) that we started talking to each other and then started dating in 1990. 

Patch: When did you get married?

BillieJo: Mark and I were married in 1994.  

Patch: How did you know you were meant for each other?

BillieJo: We just knew! 

Patch: Tell us about your first date.

BillieJo: Our first date was a dinner at Bennigans (which is no longer there on Jimmy Carter Boulevard) and we had a great time! We often drive by the location and recall our first date. I can still remember what I ate that night too.... (of course a salad.)

Patch: How did Mark propose?

BillieJo: I was away on a trip to Puerto Rico, and when I returned home, Mark asked me to marry him at the airport!

Patch: What is your favorite thing about each other? 

BillieJo: Mark is a wonderful provider and husband. Everything he does, he does for his family! 

Mark: BillieJo is a determined and dedicated woman who successfully balances being a wife, mother and business owner.

Patch: How did you celebrate Valentine's Day?

BillieJo: Dinner out to a nice restaurant.

Patch: Do you have a special nickname for each other? 

BillieJo: Yes, we do.... but no... I will not spill those beans!
