Our Story

Our Story


 

Rooted in Love

We met at church over five years ago and what started off as a friendship blossomed into a love story. As we started dating, there were characteristics on the surface that just complemented each other. Jessica's infectious laughter in response to Nathan's goofy, not-for-everyone, type of humor. Nathan's adoration over Jessica's endearing clumsiness. Jessica's attention to detail to Nathan's carefree spirit. Nathan's soft-spoken demeanor coupled with Jessica's more animated nature. Jessica's preference for form over function while Nathan almost always chooses function over form. It may seem like we are total opposites, but the truth is we bring out the best in each other. 

Underneath all of those things, we share a common foundation: our faith. We are imperfect people who have received God's unconditional and sacrificial love. As we grow more deeply in our personal relationship with God, we experience more of His love and purpose for us each day. And we share the same understanding and motivation of love as described in 1 John 4:16-19. 

We're truly grateful to our God who brought us together and showed us what it means to be loved and to love, to our families, to our church family, and to all of those who grace us with their friendship. We truly believe we are strongest with Him at the center of our lives and relationship [Ecclesiastes 4:9-12]. We've come to learn that love is predicated on commitment so we're very excited to embark on this journey together.

The Bride

Believer since December 5th, 2011.
Made in LA, Silicon Valley transplant.
I am the eldest daughter of Phillip and Kathy with a younger brother, Eric. 
I enjoy cooking dinners with friends, exercising, dabbling in DIY projects like my signature handmade journals, playing party board games, growing together with my sisters-in-Christ, snowboarding, and laughing (that's a thing!). But my personal favorite is loving Nathan, albeit it mostly consists of him making me laugh!  

The Groom

I was born and raised in the Bay Area with two loving parents, Howard and Kelly, and one younger brother, Justin. I love God, Jess, spending meaningful time with friends and family, growing together with my church community, staying up to date on the latest tech gadgets and local sports teams (Go Warriors!). I love being outdoors and living an active lifestyle, but I never say no to just staying in for a movie or board game night.
