Real Wedding - Jennifer & Cory

Kathryn Draney

How did you meet?

We met 7 years ago as freshmen while attending college in Nashville, Tennessee. We lived in the same dorm and were introduced to each other by a mutual friend.

Tell us about the proposal!

Cory had planned a very special date, he had been hyping it up for over a week saying we should go out and spoil ourselves. When Cory took an unexpected detour to the Parthenon in Nashville, I assumed we had just left too early and Cory wanted to waste some time by walking around the park. Suddenly, Cory turned me towards him and got down on one knee to pop the question! Before he could even get the words “Will you marry me?” out I was shouting, “Yes!”

What was the deciding factor to have your wedding at SeaCliff?

We were very impressed by the location of the venue and how beautiful it was, but the deciding factor for us was the staff at SeaCliff. We had a unique vision for our wedding and everyone we worked with was so willing to make our wedding dreams come true!

What are some the challenges that you faced planning your wedding?

The biggest challenge for us was planning a wedding in Southern California while living in Nashville, Tennessee. Having to work with all of our vendors from almost 2,000 miles away was not easy, but it was definitely worth it!

What were the highlights of the ceremony?

Some highlights from our ceremony were the stunningly beautiful setup, the perfect weather, and most importantly, seeing all of our family and friends sitting together celebrating with us.

What were the highlights of the reception?

All of our guests absolutely loved the food that was served! The whole venue was set up beautifully, from the lawn games and the photo booth to the dance floor and the food stations. We loved having so much space to mingle with our guests, dance, and celebrate! 

What was your favorite part of the entire day overall?

Walking into the reception for the first time as a married couple and seeing all of our family and friends celebrating us was an unforgettable experience. It is so humbling to have everyone you love in one room and witnessing how much they care about you.
