Jeff & Abby met May 7th, 2005 at the George & Dragon Tavern. After waiting the traditional 3 days, Jeff called Abby and asked her out on a date. They went to Dad Watson’s in Fremont and ate burgers and drank their Ruby Beer (Abby’s favorite). From the start Abby knew this guy was a keeper, their conversations were effortless and he found her quirkiness cute. Jeff was always a great boyfriend. He used to be a bike messenger and would stop by my house to walk my pug dog, Jack Daniels, when I was at nursing school. On October 12th, 2010 Jeff proposed to Abby at their dinner table. It was a very sweet & heartfelt proposal. At first they wanted to do a small wedding ceremony with just family and a judge. However, Abby realized that walking down the aisle with her father was really important to her. They started looking into locations that November. Jeff’s suggested Parson’s Garden right near their house. It was perfect. They could picture their families sitting in the park and where they would stand to say their vows. After looking at 5 different reception sites, they chose Ray’s Boathouse. They had a few themes at their wedding. Abby’s favorite flower is the daisy, the color green and with Jeff being an avid cyclist they had to have bikes. They are also very attached to their dogs and it was important to us to have them in the wedding. Jeff thought it would be fun to ride up the aisle on his basket bike with the dogs and it was a huge hit! For their gifts and party favors they had little green match books made with daisies and a bike on them. They also had reusable tote bags made with daises and bikes. Terrific weather helped them pull off one gorgeous wedding! Congrats Abby and Jeff! I had a great time working with you!
