Please join us for our wedding celebration on September 8, 2017
In 2011, Jonathan and Jessika both happened to move to Buffalo, NY. Unbeknownst to the other, they lived in the same neighborhood, worked in the same industry, and both had big aspirations of leaving town to seek a great perhaps. Summer of 2012, Jonathan and Jessika both appeared with Shakespeare in Delaware Park, but in different productions. Due to conflicting rehearsal schedules, they did not meet until the closing performance of Shakespeare in the Park, when a mutual friend introduced them. Finally, they were cast in a play together: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead at Buffalo Laboratory Theatre. It was in a short rehearsal process that they fell for one another, Jonathan knowing with certainty at first meeting, and Jessika when enduring an injury during performance Jonathan literally swept off her feet.
Since then, they have backpacked through Europe, roadtripped across the States, rescued their beloved miniature schnauzer, Indiana, moved to Washington, D.C., changed jobs, cars, and hairdos, and, of course, they have gotten engaged. They got married on the five year anniversary of their first date.
