Jon didn't take his mother's advice when she told him to call Jenni, but fate intervened and they eventually met at a bar while out with friends. The Bride Jenni Beckett, 25, an occupational therapist The Groom Jonathan (Jon) Arndt, 28, medical device sales rep The Date September 1 Of course, mom knows best: the pair hit it off while on their first date the very next day, and 18 months later Jon surprised Jenni with a trip to Seattle to see her parents. While there, during a romantic picnic at a local winery, Jon got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. "He chose the spot because it had always been my dream to get married at the winery; however, they don't allow weddings there, so he thought this would be the next best thing," says Jenni. At their wedding just over a year later, a 1920s theme added vintage flair to the celebration.
