Jenny and Ben's Love Story

Get to know a little bit more about Jenny at Jenny Does Weddings, and how she met her fiance, Glen!

Our love story may be a fairytale now, but it didn’t necessarily begin that way. Was it love at first sight? Absolutely. Out of all the classes I took in college and all the students I saw but never paid much attention to, I remember almost everything about the class we took together and how quickly I noticed Glen. His smile, his laugh, his voice, and his height were all pretty swoon worthy.

We didn’t officially meet until I opened my drunken mouth and asked one of his teammates if they knew each other. Had I ever spoken to him? Nope. But the next day, Glen walked right into classes and said, “Hey Jenny”. I then sat through an excruciatingly long 3 hour class and tried to calm the mini heart attack I was experiencing. After dropping my phone right in front of him and sprinting out the door, we began texting on a daily basis, sometimes right up to 4am.

We eventually ended up dating other people and after over a year of poor relationship decisions we starting talking again. We hung out with a group of my friends – it was awful. He was uncomfortable, I was newly single with no patience, and we didn’t speak for 2 weeks.

When my friend, now a bridesmaid, convinced me to reach out and give Glen a second chance, I asked him to pick the place and I met him on his stomping grounds. After a few beers I could see he was relaxed. I had butterflies multiplying at a rapid rate in my stomach and after our first kiss they never really stopped.

Since that night we have been inseparable. We moved into our first apartment together after dating for 4 months and were engaged one year later.

It has been a whirlwind. If someone had told me my Junior year that signing up for Drugs and Society would change my life, I would seriously begin to question what exactly they were referring to. Our story reminds me that everything happens for a reason, and almost everything has to do with timing. We let our story unfold over time, never rushing, and never forcing a decision. Now we get to see how the rest of our lives together will unfold, and I couldn’t be more excited.
