Cayla went to a friend’s graduation party in San Diego in June 2006. The friend said to Cayla, “come to my party, there will be TONS of cute, Jewish guys!” Cayla went to the party and met a guy named Dave. They got to know each other that night and before leaving the party, he suggested they connect on MySpace. After returning back to school at ASU, Cayla and Dave started messaging each other over MySpace and then on the phone. After a few days, Dave fessed up and admitted that he was Dave Chipp. They had met at the party, but the guy she met and spoke with at length at the party was Dave G … not Dave Chipp. They both believed fate was on their side and after over three years of being together, Dave surprised Cayla with an overnight trip to Casa del Mar and proposed overlooking the Pacific Coast.
Dave and Cayla always say that the year they were engaged was the most fun! There was so much to celebrate along with so much love surrounding them. Rabbi Geller (who was also Cayla’s Bat Mitzvah rabbi) guided them in writing and designing their own ketubah and turning their broken glass into a mezzuzah to be placed in their future home. The ketubah ceremony was the most meaningful experience and there was not a dry eye in the room.
Mazel tov, Cayla and Dave!
