Jenni and Jino are another lucky couple who met through JDate! They fell in love instantly after meeting at a coffee shop in the East Village. Unfortunately, Jino had to go back to Israel only a couple weeks after they met. Jino had only moved to the U.S. less than a year ago. He was born and raised in Israel, not far from Tel Aviv. He came to the US to pursue his music career. Luckily, through daily 5 a.m. Skype calls, their relationship only grew stronger and almost one month later they were back together.
Even before their first trip to Israel together they knew they wanted to be married and that their second trip to Israel would be their wedding. Only a few of Jenni’s family members could make the trip to Israel so they knew they would be celebrating twice. Jenni and Jino had a smaller wedding and civil ceremony in Brooklyn and everyone in Jenni’s family was able to be a part of it. Jino’s parents flew in from Israel as well. Even though it was only the legal ceremony, it was important for them to incorporate some Jewish traditions including the blessing over the wine and the breaking of the glass. It was a beautiful evening in the gorgeous backyard of a coffee house in Downtown Brooklyn.
Not only is Jenni crafty when planning a DIY wedding, she also has a business making handmade crafts and Judaica and made Hamsa Key chain favors for both weddings! They were used as escort cards at the Brooklyn Wedding. She wanted to give fun yet meaningful gifts to all of their friends and family who attended their weddings.
