Jenna and David were such a wonderful couple to work with. They were married on a gorgeous fall day at The Pines at Genesee. The two live in Arizona but wanted to choose a place that was special to them and love the Colorado mountains. I asked Jenna a few questions about her wedding day.
In your words, how did you and David meet?
David and I met in the summer of 2017. I was doing my second internship at Ronald McDonald House and David was the house manager. I went in a couple of weeks before starting to say hi to everyone and catch up. My supervisor brought me over to David’s office to introduce us. When we met I was nervous, excited and caught off guard! We quickly learned over the next few months how much we had in common such as our love for travel, hiking and running. Every day I looked forward to going there because I knew we would get a chance to talk and I would learn more about him. I know for many months my friends and family were probably tired of hearing about him and this huge crush I had.
How did David propose?
David and I had talked another marriage for a couple of months before he proposed. We both knew we were ready and wanted to take that next step. David had sort of convinced me it would happen in the near future but it may still be a little way off so I was trying not to think about it too much. One more we went for a hike and after walking around for quite a while I started getting hungry and antsy. David kept saying he wanted to stay a little longer. We went over to a beautiful spot with this huge tree. At this point, I still had no idea what was going on. David pulled the ring out and got on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked at that moment. It was perfect!
What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?
My favorite moment of the wedding day was just seeing everyone come together. We had people come from all over the country to celebrate our love and that was amazing to see. We loved having that time with our friends and family.
Were there any funny moments to be remembered forever about your day? Were there any mishaps?
I would have to say the funny moment was when we shared that head butt! It was obviously unexpected but ended up being funny.
Do you have any advice for a future bride to be/or groom before their wedding?
My advice to other brides and grooms would be don’t stress over the little things and just enjoy that time with each other and everyone there. People don’t come for the small details, they come because they want to share this moment with you and at the end that’s all that matters.
