Best friends forever has special meaning for Greenwich High grads Jenny Riskin and Patrick Wilson. After meeting in the eighth grade, the two became fast friends and stayed that way through high school. In college their friendship blossomed into more, and they dated for nine years. Patrick proposed to Jenny during a sunset sail around Nantucket Harbor. There, in a place where they’d vacationed together for years, Jenny said yes to forever.
