Couple’s hometown: South Kingstown
Wedding date: September 30, 2016
Wedding venue: Newport Vineyards
Tell us how you met: Although Jackson and Jen both went to South Kingstown High School only one year apart, they didn’t know each other until after college. Their first date was in December 2012 when Jackson reached out to Jen’s sister and Maid of Honor, Allie, and asked if he could take her on a date. After much debate, Allie decided to let Jen know Jackson was interested and she agreed to go. Ever since that first date, try as Jen might to not date Jackson at first, they’ve been together and quickly became inseparable.
Jackson proposed to Jen on August 19, 2015 on his parent’s dock on Indian Lake, presenting her with the perfect ring and a complete surprise. To Jen’s disbelief, Jackson had really thought out the evening and planned surprise after surprise, starting with his mother being camera ready to capture the sweet moment of shock and tears of happiness. Next Jackson coordinated Jen’s family to meet them at dinner to all celebrate together, followed by post dinner drinks with some of Jen’s closest friends (and some of his), and finally ending with even more love when they arrived home in the form of flowers, cards and gifts from friends & family that could not attend. It was the best day and they can’t wait to continue celebrating on September 30, 2016.
