Jeff & Kelly


Jeff and Kelly met at an event in South Korea. Kelly bought Jeff a drink from afar, but the flirtatious gesture was lost in translation due to the bartender. Jeff (who occasionally got a free drink or two for helping to run events, take pictures, advertise) didn't know a pretty girl bought him a drink. But that didn't stop her, she approached him anyways and soon enough sparks were flying. Since then, they've rarely spent a day apart. On Kelly’s birthday they took a trip to Yosemite for a good hike. They hiked up to a beautiful scenic spot overlooking Yosemite, while Kelly was taking in view Jeff got down on one knee and the rest is history.  Being world travelers and having friends in different countries caused challenges for figuring out a venue for the wedding. When realizing the historic cottage was on the beach and only five minutes away from their home in San Clemente, it seemed ridiculous to go anywhere else. It was just our luck their goal was to incorporate as many local vendors as possible. The bridal prep took place at the Nomads Hotel in San Clemente, California. The wedding was full of outdoor games, a mariachi band, a giant bubble man, a contortionist, a taco truck and even a piñata for the kids. The guest list incorporated people from all over the world (26 states and 8 countries to be exact). Next on Jeff and Kelly’s list is to travel the world starting in Asia with the Winter Olympics.
