There’s nothing like a good rooftop Jewish wedding, with a chuppah set against the backdrop of stunning city views – and Samantha and Jacob’s Atlanta celebration truly takes the (wedding) cake!
Samantha, who is finishing up her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, and Jacob, who works at a start-up biomedical engineer company as the head developer, planned an absolutely exquisite day, featuring the most vibrant summer blooms in shades of pink and orange, a stunning ketubah from beloved Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor ketubah.com adored with a hamsa and pomegranates, and a touching memory wall honoring lost loved ones (including the bride’s brother who tragically passed away at age 19).
All the love and joy of this special day comes through so strongly in the photos from Hellen CO – read on for all the details in the couple’s own words!
How we Met
Samantha, the bride: Where do we begin… Samantha and Jacob met when they were very young, during middle school at a homecoming dance, by being introduced from mutual friends. From there and throughout middle and high school, they talked on and off (Facebook messenger fashion) until they decided to catch up at a local park their junior year and hit it off right away.
After many dates, Jacob, being extremely nervous, asked Samantha a million question before finally asking her to be his girlfriend. As years went by and numerous dances, football games, holidays, and family gatherings spent together, countless memories were shared with one another and their love for one another grew.
Samantha cheered Jacob on during football while Jacob supported Samantha’s never ending commitments. When college approached, their locations diverged but their love did not. Although there were over four years of long distance and all of those miles apart, their love for each other never faltered and it was coupled with numerous adventures, great food, and of course many shopping sprees!
On September 26th 2020, after exploring Charleston, SC (Samantha’s favorite place), Jacob surprised Samantha by proposing to her under a gazebo at the Charleston Battery with their families present. Finally, they will be able to solidify their title as high school sweethearts after 7+ years of dating.
