You Complete Me.
Jennifer and Sam met through mutual friends in 2011 and in 2012 became a couple. Four years later, Sam planned a birthday surprise and proposed to Jennifer in front of their closest family and friends with a gorgeous 3 carat cushion cut split shank ring by Keith Miller.
The two literally dove into wedding planning the day after the proposal. Instead of a year or more of planning, the two decided to focus their efforts and planned their June wedding in just three months!
“You could say we put a self-imposed time limit on our wedding,” shares Jennifer. “Every bride and groom has things that are important to them, and while the wedding is important, the time that follows is most important.”
Although the task may have seemed overwhelming, they managed to create their dream wedding!
