In 2016 Mike stumbled across Jenn's Twitch stream because she was playing his favorite game, The Last of Us. They became fast friends and spent countless hours hanging out and gaming together online. While spending their anniversary in St. Augustine, they were taking a walk through the beautiful historic town. Everything just felt right so Jenn knelt down and asked the question!
“I love Mike's good heart, how he cares so much about others and the loving way he treats animals too. I love his sense of humor and how well it meshes with my own. I love his never-ending enthusiasm for life, always coming up with new fun things to do and never letting us fall into routine. I love how sensitive and romantic he is, he's so loving and always surprising me with small gestures. I love how supportive he is of my passions and dreams, he is very involved in my stream and always rooting for me. He has never missed one of my shows.I love his problem-solving mind, he's not one to give up on any problem, he'll always think of a solution and work to fix it. I love his voice, his laugh, his face, everything about him.” - Jenn
“Falling in love with Jenn happened in an instant. She always brings the best version of myself out of me in every situation and always makes me look inside of myself and think about things from a different perspective. There's never ever enough time in a day to spend with her and I'm constantly looking for new things to do and experience with her. She makes me laugh all the time, makes my heart race and melt all at once. She has the kindest heart I've ever known and an unrivaled sense of empathy. Just seeing her face makes me smile and I feel so lucky and special to be able to share my time and my life with her and to watch her grow into an even more wonderful person every single day.” - Mike
Together they enjoy gaming, watching movies, going on walks, playing card games, binging TV shows on Netflix, going to restaurants, going to Disney and visiting Connecticut.
Jennifer and Mike wanted somewhere quiet and filled with nature away from the normal tropical and beach-type areas and venues so commonly found in Florida. Their wedding day outfits matched the overall color palette of their wedding and fell in line with the nature-infused and floral theme.
They selected all of the designs and details about their ceremony and reception. They compromised along the way to make sure the day was special and meaningful to both of them. Just knowing that their wedding is a culmination of both of their efforts and creativity made this day special and unique to them. The wedding vows, the first kiss the food and seeing all of their friends and family there to support them and their life together and share their special moments with them was beautiful to witness.
All of their hard work and planning came together to create a beautiful and enchanting scene with the floral decorations, the ceremony area in the secret garden and for their reception on the Villa patio. The entire day was a romantic and intimate escape to a secret garden surrounded by family and loved ones to celebrate the partnership they share. They wedding was nature-infused, rustic-filled and lush with flowers and trees….A tucked away fantasy.
