Real Wedding: Jaclyn Welstein & Grant Deppen

1 comment:
 
"We first met when Jaclyn was a 6th grader and Grant a 7th grader at Old Orchard Junior High in Skokie, IL. We were in the same social circle in high school (each dating each other's good friends), but we were never really friends ourselves. This all changed one night after college when we randomly bumped into each other while out at a bar. We had a fun night together, but no numbers were exchanged. Grant contacted a mutual friend for Jaclyn's number and the relationship grew from there.

We had been dating for almost five years and were on a ski vacation in Vail, Colorado when Grant proposed. Grant was able to incorporate three of our favorite things to do as a couple into the engagement - travel, spending time outdoors, and being active/adventurous. We wanted to have a more intimate wedding that was truly a reflection of us as a couple. We wrote our own ceremony with Grant's twin brother as the officiant, chose venues that had significant personal meaning to us, made much of the decor ourselves, and had numerous other family and friends help out in various capacities (our florist, makeup artist, wedding planner, etc). The night was absolutely perfect; we have never felt more loved and humbled at the incredible family and friends we are lucky enough to have in our lives."
