Jenny and Yager have known each other for years thanks to Yager’s sister, Anna, who Jenny had been friends with since high school. Stars aligned for them when Anna invited her on a Caribbean cruise with her brother and their cousins in May 2014. It was an amazing trip, from snorkeling the coral reefs in Grand Cayman to cave tubing in the Belize rainforest together. The more time Yager and Jenny spent one-on-one and really got to know each other, feelings grew from friendship to something more. Yager asked Jenny out on their first date a week after the cruise, and the rest is history. Moral of the story – sometimes “the one” is right in front of you all along!
How He Proposed
Jenny: “One of our favorite activities to do together is hiking. When Yager asked if I wanted to go try out a new trail at South Mountain State Park one Saturday morning in early June, I didn’t think it would be anything out of the ordinary. After a nice long hike on the Chestnut Knob Trail, we finally reached the summit. We walked to the overlook and the view was incredible! He got down on one knee right there and asked me to marry him. It was absolutely perfect and of course (after squealing “are you serious?!”), I said yes! Our furry four-legged child, Ruckus, witnessed it all. ever!”
