One of the best parts of our job is getting to know new people. Upon first meeting Jenn and Jordan, I instantly fell in love with them and wanted to be their best friend! They are so kind, funny, and just fun to be around! I got the chance to catch up with them a few weeks after their wedding to get some take-aways from their day and reflect back on their “best day ever”!!
How he proposed:
I had a close friend invite Jenn to an imaginary wine tasting I made up on WKU's campus to get her there because she can’t refuse free wine ;) instead of a party, I was there waiting on the Kissing Bridge, a photographer hiding and nerves racing. After she said yes, I surprised her with a celebration dinner at Mariahs with family and friends.
I thought I was going to a wine event on WKU’s campus with my friend Stephanie. I googled the event, but everyone was convincing me that it was a new event and that’s why it wasn’t advertised online. We get there and I realized what was happening when I saw Jordan standing on the kissing bridge. I was in such shock that Jordan jokes I didn’t really say yes when he proposed. He did such a wonderful job keeping everything a surprise and had my family and friends waiting for me to celebrate with at dinner.
What was your favorite part of your day?
Our first look was my favorite moment. For starters, it was just us. A very raw moment of overwhelming emotion. It was the first moment the entire day that I wasnt thinking of anything else but enjoying how gorgeous my wife-to-be was. Memories of 6 years prior racing through my mind and the endless possibilities in the future that we are going to have together as well. It was an intense realization that I was marrying my best friend.
My favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle. I was trying not to get too emotional and when I saw Jordan crying, I knew that if I kept looking at him I was going to be bawling. I looked to my friends and family and it was such a sweet moment to see everyone there surrounding us with love and support. So then I began tearing up anyway. Haha.
Why did you choose Highland Stables?
The venue itself was stunning the moment we stepped in the door. Of all the places we visited, it was the only one that truly blew us away. The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating beyond expectation. After we got in the car when we visited for the first time, we both agreed instantly it's where we wanted to celebrate our marriage.
I really wanted to have a venue that was big enough that there would be room to set up inside and not move the reception in case of bad weather. It was predicted to rain the day of our wedding, so we set up the indoor ceremony site. Thankfully, the rain held and the staff was amazing and were able to set up the outdoor location a few hours before the wedding.
