Joy and Jeff’s relationship is built on travel, love for each others’ hobbies and interests, and being the best kinds of people they can be to each other and in life. They met while studying abroad in Oxford back in 2005, but lost touch for two years. Time works in mysterious ways, though, and after graduating college, they moved to San Francisco and reconnected in the spring of 2007.
Joy and Jeff helped each other grow by sharing their worlds with each other: Jeff got Joy golf clubs for their first Hanukkah together and Joy introduced Jeff to fitness, including yoga because she is a certified instructor. They got engaged over a beautifully cooked dinner by Jeff, and ended up planning their wedding long-distance as the couple moved to Boston as Jeff started his MBA program at MIT Sloan.
With 150 guests in attendance, Joy and Jeff created a meaningful Jewish wedding ceremony stemming from artistic culture. They wrote their own vows and they included a Pablo Neruda poetry reading.
