A Vintage Wedding in Morris, IL
Jen and Jeff went to middle and high school together, but had never spoken to each other until Jen’s sophomore year when she and a friend sent Jeff a message on AOL Instant Messenger. (Online chatting was the cool thing to do!) The two messenged each other all the time, and an Internet relationship bloomed. One problem: Jeff was too shy to talk to Jen at school. They acted like they didn’t know each other! That is, until their mutual friends arranged to get them together at a bowling ally. The pair finally had a first date, and they’ve been together ever since, dating long-distance during college when Jeff moved to Los Angeles, CA. Jen moved to be with him a few years later. The Bride Jennifer (Jen) Graham, 25, an entrepreneur/artisan The Groom Jeffrey (Jeff)Seidler, 27, a documentary filmmaker The Date October 4 After eight years together, Jeff proposed on their rooftop with wine and candles. The couple planned a wedding in their hometown (across the street from their high school!) and managed to pull everything together in only six weeks, since they didn’t want to wait another year for the amazing fall weather. They stuck to a 1920s, vintage theme but no specific color palette.
