It was Jake’s “beautiful blue eyes” that first caught Jenna’s attention but she quickly realised behind his My Space photo was a sensitive and thoughtful guy who really listened to her. Being just 15 and 17 years old when they first got together, Jenna and Jake’s early dates were McDonalds, the movies, some local markets – basically anywhere they could go to on the bus!
It was a far cry from the dinner date many years later at Southbank restaurant Pure South, where Jake popped the question. Jake arranged for the ring to arrive on Jenna’s dessert, with the words ‘will you marry me?’ written in chocolate sauce across the plate. “When the dessert arrived, Jenna looked at mine before she even looked at hers,” Jake said. “It wasn’t until I said, are you going to give me a bite? That she looked down and finally saw it!”
For their wedding day the teenage sweethearts chose to take photos at the beautiful The Gatehouse at Villa Raedward in the Yarra Valley before making it official at the picturesque Rochford Winery with the help of celebrant Matt Finch.
Jake and Jenna – you guys were so much fun and we had an absolute ball spending the day together – I definitely am a lot more educated about comic book characters now! May you always make each other laugh as much as you did on your wedding day – especially by roaring like the Hulk :)
