A Stunning Summer Wedding at Cedar Ridge Winery in Swisher, IA

Long Distance to Endless Love

Richard and Jenna’s remarkable bond began seven years ago when mutual friends introduced them. Little did they know that their friendship would evolve into something extraordinary, eventually leading them through years of long-distance and the challenges of long-distance romance. Richard saved her ring size in his phone since the first year they started dating.

Getting Engaged

Richard and Jenna embarked on a memorable hike in the majestic Rocky Mountain National Park. Surrounded by towering peaks and breathtaking vistas, the beauty of nature mirrored the depth of their love. As they ascended higher and higher, reaching a picturesque spot at the mountain’s summit, Richard found the perfect moment to propose. However, both were too nervous about the ring’s safety to fully remember the words spoken during that heartfelt proposal. Either way, it was an amazing moment and a big step forward in their love story.
