Real Wedding: Jenna & Jarrid

Gina Scanlon

Jenna and Jarrid got hitched at the Seacliff Country Club in Huntington Beach, California on June 18th, 2016.

The couple met in December of 2012 at their company Christmas party. They worked for the same company, but in different offices. They hit it off that night and had an instant connection! They both went with a group after the party, and Jenna and Jarrid danced the rest of the night away. The duo went on their first date a week later and have been together ever since.

Jenna says they decided to have their wedding ceremony and reception at Seacliff for many reasons, but mainly so that their family and friends wouldn’t have to drive from one location to the next. She also loved Seacliff’s wonderful staff, and view overlooking the golf course, which sealed the deal!

Jenna says it was a blast planning their wedding, but the most challenging aspect was choosing the vendors. She did a lot of research to make sure they were all a good fit. The highlight of the ceremony, she says, was finally getting to stand up in front of their family and friends, and giving her new husband their first kiss as husband and wife!

Reception highlights included the wonderful speeches that were given, as well as everyone’s reaction to the couple’s surprise first dance.
