The Couple: Marla & Jasen
Wedding Date: August 17, 2013
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Jasen and I met in Reno very serendipitously at a very romantic location…one of Reno’s finest dive bars! At the time, Jasen lived in Las Vegas and I was in the process of moving there. I called him during my move because my car broke down and the rest of my friends in Las Vegas wouldn’t have a clue how to fix it. Jasen and I connected almost immediately. We developed our relationship playing golf and various other sports. Our relationship works easily and smoothly, mostly because he pretends to allow me to boss him around.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Our vows were very moving and extraordinary. I was surprised how full of love and life I felt as I was walking down the aisle. There was a power and presence with us that day that I have never felt and probably will not feel again.
What else would you like to share about your big day? Our day was so perfectly “us.” Casual and beautiful; controlled and wild; loud and moving and full of free spirited play.
