Marica + Jered’s wedding day was a wonderful day filled with so many beautiful moments. I had an amazing time with them in the spring at their engagement session in Morgantown and knew their wedding was going to be amazing.  The day was sunny and warm and filled with so much love. Not only between the two of them, but with all of their family and friends.

Here is a little about how they met (from Marica):
In high school, we played for the same soccer club and Jered found himself asking around about “that girl from Tabb” (we went to rival high schools). To his dismay, we did not have any mutual friends and he never had a chance to ask me out. Fast forward many years, college degrees and jobs later, we both made our way back to Hampton Roads, Virginia: Jered as a Firefighter/Paramedic; Marica (me), a Physician Assistant in an ER. We met again when he transported a patient to my hospital. Instantly recognizing each other, we caught up and a friendship began. A few dates, pickup soccer and a hockey game later, our story began!

Their first dance was to the Cure “Just like Heaven”. Here are Marica’s thoughts on the song, “This song kind of picked us… the first time we heard it together, it invoked a feeling of passion, love, lust and longing all at the same time. According to frontman, Richard Smith, “The song is about hyperventilating—kissing and fainting to the floor,” and was written about his girlfriend (later wife) while on a vacation in southern England. Coincidentally, it was released in 1987 (the year we were born) and in October, the month that Jered proposed, while on our vacation in Europe.”

Their ceremony was so lovely and their vows were so genuine. They had an Italian drink as their signature drink (since they got engaged in Italy, it was perfect!) during the reception. The dances between Marica and her dad and Jered and his mom were beautiful and emotional. That always gets me! Then the party started! Take a peek at their beautiful day.

They each got each other sweet little gifts. He put together a photo book and a beautiful necklace and she got him a gorgeous watch! Their first look was so sweet and emotional. It was beautiful!

Thank you both for having us there on your beautiful wedding day! Jake and I are so happy for you both and your future together!
