Our Story

James & Jennifer met in the summer of 2020 via OKCupid during their last attempts at online dating, and immediately felt a connection. During the height of Covid, Jennifer flew to Turkey so that they could meet in person to see if they were really a true fit - and they were! James proposed via Zoom in March of 2021, and that December Jennifer decided to celebrate her first Christmas away from home, and flew back to Turkey to spend it with James. The following February (2022), Jennifer presented James with the best Valentine's Day gift - she was pregnant. That July, James made his first trek to the U.S. to visit Jennifer (pregnant with the yet to be born James TIberius), and meet the family. James flew back home to Turkey in August, returned in February 2023, and was set to return to Turkey in April...but Jennifer had different plans! She asked him to stay in the U.S. with her. They were married in April of 2023 in a civil union officiated by Jennifer's father, Alonzo. Jennifer and James are excited for you to join them in celebrating their Catholic wedding, bringing God, family, and friends to their union.
