The Bride Jennifer (Jen) Dettloff, 29, a deputy legal counsel for the Michigan State Senate The Groom Robert (Rob) Snyder, 31, an exercise physiologist at Ingham Regional Medical Center The Date September 17 Rather than focusing on a specific theme, Jen and Rob just started accumulating things they liked (vintage suitcases, typewriters, and classic car emblems) to incorporate into their wedding decor.
