Brittany and Bryan met when she was a senior at the University of Southern California. Her roommate persuaded her to talk to a guy from JDate, who was a USC alum, because she thought his sense of humor was perfect for her. Brittany reluctantly agreed and talked to Bryan. In that first conversation, they both felt a connection, and also couldn’t get over the fact that Bryan’s sister had the same first and middle name as Brittany, and even spelled it the same way! They went on their first date a week later, and from then on they were always together. On their three year anniversary, Bryan took Brittany to the restaurant they went to on their first date. During dinner, the waitress brought a silver tray to the table, and on it was a red rose and ring box! Bryan told Brittany to follow him and they went into a private room in the restaurant, where friends and family happily awaited a proposal. Bryan’s whole family flew in from Arizona to be there for the special day. Bryan asked Brittany to marry him, and of course she said yes!
Brittany and Bryan tried to fill their wedding with special and meaningful touches. The rabbi from Bryan’s Jewish day school in Tucson flew out to perform the ceremony, and Brittany’s cousin was the cantor. They had framed pictures of loved ones displayed, and had a “well wishes tree” instead of a guest book, where guests could write special messages to the couple. They loved their chuppah so much that they decided to use it twice, during the ceremony and also as a display area for their cake.
What a special and happy wedding, celebrating the love of a very beautiful bride and groom!
Mazel tov, Brittany and Bryan!
