Jenn & Zach planned a wedding that focused on all of their favorite things! They made sure that every detail from their big day corresponded with who they are as a couple. From donuts to karaoke their wedding had it all! We asked Jenn to share more about their love story and their wedding day details.
How did you and your partner meet?
It's pretty crazy that it took so long for us to meet. We have friends in common across three states and have been invited to the same events dating back years, but in every case whenever Zach attended one, I wouldn’t, and vice versa. Finally, in November of 2017, I visited Zach's home turf, Seattle, to be a test model for her esthetician friend Jen (same name, different person). I was accompanied by their mutual friend Ashley, which at long last put them in each other's orbit. Not immediately, but close to it (with the help of some gentle matchmaking by Zach's friend Lily), Zach & I hit it off, discovering we had more things in common with one another than we even knew was possible. I ended up spending the rest of my trip with Zach and have been inseparable ever since.
From the beginning we were both very upfront about discussing the possibility of marriage. By early February, they knew for sure that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. I always joked that I "knew where I wanted to get married, but just needed the groom," so, on February 10th, 2017, we went to my dream wedding venue just to look around. The venue's event planner informed us that there were three open Saturdays left in 2018, and in that moment, we just looked into each other's eyes and knew exactly what we wanted. We booked the venue on the spot and shared the happy news with our families that evening. That only left the business of an engagement ring, which we picked out together the very next day. Since the ring had to be sent off for sizing and Instagram was calling, Zach and I purchased an assortment of Ring-Pops and staged an impromptu sunset photoshoot at the scenic Vista House lookout to formally announce our engagement.
