Juhi & Jason in Guerneville, CA
What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas -- and that was a good thing for Juhi and Jason. The two met in Sin City while Juhi was there finishing up a rotation in trauma and Jason was taking a last-minute getaway. Afterward, with Juhi in Detroit completing her residency and Jason living in San Francisco, they decided to date long-distance.

The Groom Jason Bell, 36, entrepreneur
The Date May 19
Eight months later, while on a vacation in San Diego, the pair got engaged, and then a destination wedding in the Wine Country was in the works. After they booked the Dawn Ranch Lodge in Sonoma County for both their ceremony and reception, Juhi and Jason asked the wedding planner, Alison Hotchkiss, to bring their dream wedding to life. The result: a laid-back, outdoor ceremony and reception that took place underneath a canopy of California’s majestic redwoods.
