We’ve got such a great wedding of such great people to share with you today! In fact, this lovely day was featured on Ruffled last week, and we are super excited about that because this DIY wedding totally deserves a shout out.
We met Jackie and Daniel more than a year ago at a Coffee Bean to talk weddings and see if we were a good fit for them. Since Chris and I had arrived a bit early, I’d brought in my math book (what, you all don’t carry around math books everywhere you go?) to get some prep done. We had no idea at the time that Jackie was a math teacher, too, but we bonded immediately, as only math teachers to teenagers can.
Why is this story important to their wedding day? It’s not really, but I like it. It was a great first meeting, and Jackie and Daniel have been good friends of ours ever since! We have each other over for dinners and board games (Catan! Puerto Rico!) every few months or so.
Okay, onto the wedding.
