Most of the time, we get a chance to meet our couples before their wedding day.  However, since Jenna and Jon live in Texas, it was a little hard!  But since they are both originally from this area, it is what brought them back to the Jersey shore for their wedding!

Jon and Jenna first met one another in December of 2010.  If you ask her, she’d say that they met through a mutual friend, if you ask him, he’d probably say they met through Craigslist.  Long story short, the previous summer, Jenna and a few of her friends rented a shore house in Sea Isle City, and put up an ad on Craigslist for a few extra spots in the house. A group of guys from Drexel (not Jon) responded and they had a great summer! They decided to have a little reunion in the Poconos that winter, and when one of the Drexel guys sent a text to his friend from college, Jon, talking about the trip, he wound up sending it to this Jon instead of their summer roommate John.  Obviously Jon was a little confused, but ended up getting an invite to the Poconos, and the rest is history! 🙂

Jon and Jenna started talking about moving south the following summer, and actively started looking for jobs.  Jon moved to Texas in June of 2012, and Jenna was able to luckily find a job the first time she came to visit! Over the summer of 2014, they planned a trip to South Padre Island for the weekend after Jenna’s birthday, and although she suspected it, Jon didn’t seem nervous and was very cool and calm, so she thought maybe it wouldn’t be happening. But the one night, they headed down to the beach, where Jon found a secluded spot and popped the question!

So, what a better place to get married, than on the beach?! The chose the beautiful Windrift Hotel for their wedding day!  From getting ready, to the ceremony to their celebration with family and friends afterwards, it was so much fun and absolutely perfect for the two of them!  Enjoy their day! 🙂 xoJenna-Jon-Windrift-Hotel-Avalon-Beach-New-Jersey-Shore-Wedding-Photographer-0004
