Meet Jerri and Jacob. Jerri and Jacob are both musicians. Jacob plays the saxophone, and Jerri’s a singer. I so love that it’s music that brought them together. When Jerri was a music student, Jacob was working part time accompanying music students. The very first person he accompanied was Jerri.

These two are clearly crazy about each other. I’m not sure if I ever had to suggest that they not look at the camera – they couldn’t take their eyes off each other.

How they met makes a good story, and The Proposal is pretty amazing too. Jacob proposed to Jerri on a little bridge. On one of the Hawaiian islands.

We kept our eye on the graffiti to be sure nothing objectionable ended up in the background. I liked this one. It could have said “GET OUT” or far worse, but this request was far more polite.

Jacob recently returned from a trip to an American military base in Qatar, where his band played for soldiers serving overseas. Jacob & Jerri – thank you so much for being such good sports, willing to try anything! I can’t wait for your wedding in just over a month.
