Jenne + Andrew's journey began on a ski trip in the picturesque Lake Tahoe. As fate would have it, their paths crossed on top of the mountain, surrounded by the beauty of nature. It was an instant connection, fueled by shared passions for skiing, hiking, and exploring the great outdoors. Their love story continued to unfold, filled with cherished moments spent traveling, cycling, practicing yoga, and working together on their business.

When the time came for Andrew to propose, he orchestrated a surprise that embodied their adventurous spirits. In the midst of quarantine, they embarked on weekly hikes, setting the stage for the momentous occasion. Andrew had scouted a spot below the Golden Gate Bridge, offering a breathtaking view of Lands End. With champagne and a cozy blanket in tow, he popped the question, creating a memory that would forever be etched in their hearts.
