His first impressions were right. He just knew when he saw her there in the Las Vegas airport that she was a kind and genuine person, someone who would smile and say hi if he tried talking to her. And so they talked, from Las Vegas to Orlando on a Southwest flight, they talked. Joel soon discovered after spending five hours chatting with Jenni that there was something special about her. Jenni also felt like she could just be herself and that Joel was someone she could trust. She was comfortable around him. Comfortable enough, she was, to give him her number as they parted ways at the Orlando airport in hopes that he would use it. And he did! Joel got back to Ocala and talked a friend into going to Orlando where Jenni was visiting Universal with her best friend. They met at Tu Tu Tango and then headed on over to City Walk for the evening. It was a great first date!
Their love progressed pretty quickly and both knew fairly early on that this was different and special. They wanted to be together and spend more time together. This posed a unique challenge as they lived on opposite coasts. They were falling in love and the airlines were cashing in! In July of this year, Joel proposed to Jenni outside of the same hotel that he picked her and her friend up from in Orlando for their first date. She obviously said yes and they will unite as husband & wife next April here in Orlando at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. We are so excited to able to document part of this amazing chapter in their story together!
