Carrey and Jesse had no idea what was in store for them when a mutual friend invited them out one night. The two clicked right away -- but when Carrey had to leave early, they thought they’d missed their opportunity for a relationship. Later, when that same friend set up another “chance” meeting, the two reconnected and Jesse asked her out on their first date.
The Bride Carrey Sullins, 24, customer service/vendor relations
The Groom Jesse Ward, 29, restaurant manager
The Date October 25
On a crisp fall day, Jesse prepared a birthday celebration for Carrey. When she opened one of her gifts, she was thrilled to find a pair of UGG boots she’d been eyeing. Jesse urged her to try them on, and much to her surprise, she found a small box inside amid the paper and stuffing. Thinking it was a necklace, she was truly shocked to find an engagement ring! It was only fitting that they planned an autumn wedding in the stunning Santa Cruz Mountains where the two fell in love.
