They met in the third year of law school. They were introduced in the hallway by a mutual friend, and Jonathan quickly followed up by texting “so… who’s your cute friend?” After dating throughout the year, the two finally figured out how seriously involved they were. Amidst studying for the Bar, the most grueling legal test, their bond flourished. From that point on, things moved pretty quickly. K.C. asked Jonathan to move to Mississippi with her, and after spending enough time in a tiny trailer in an unfamiliar town, they figured that they didn’t want to be anywhere else but there, with each other!
They have a very warm and compassionate relationship that is also silly and playful. They are both multi-faceted people with many varied interests – listening to and playing music, doing just about anything outdoors – hiking, biking, backpacking, swimming, creating art, traveling, cooking, writing. Actually, they just got back from a trip to the exciting country of Morocco! Together they have moved halfway across the country to live in a trailer in Mississippi, were gone traveling for eight months – backpacking around Southeast Asia, Central America, and South America. All of this helps to make their relationship an ever-growing and changing thing, allowing them to grow and experience new things individually and together. And now they have moved into their first home and are braving the inevitable “get a real job” stage.
December 20th proved to be a magical day in the lives of K.C and Jonathan.
K.C. never saw it coming… Dragging her to the city under the false pretense of picking up a Christmas gift for his mother -Jonathan asked her to wait on a bench outside an ice cream shop. It was the same bench, where they would take study breaks and eat ice cream-it was where they first said- “I love you” to one another. Jonathan went in to use the restroom at the ice cream shop where his brothers were waiting with a suit, flowers, and balloons. A few minutes later he stepped out and boom! Things were never the same for the two. It was truly a magical day! They have had such an overwhelming number of people say how much they loved every aspect of it. They could not have imagined it going any better, say they today.
The venue for their wedding reception was great-nestled in Sonoma Valley, it had everything-a barn, a great tented lawn for dinner, ruins for the ceremony and dancing, a heirloom rose garden, and a layout, that tied all these things together seamlessly.
The ceremony felt sincere and personalized, incorporating aspects of both of the bride and the groom. The dinner was delicious. The band was rocking, cranking out old soul tunes and modern pop. The desserts were unbelievable. And of course the guests were wonderful. The youngest guest was Jonathan’s niece, their now-goddaughter, who was two weeks old…
