Jasmine is another bride who didn't let the unpredictability of COVID prevent her and her fiancee Jamey from celebrating their nuptials. No delay could keep this duo from showing off their individuality on their special day. They celebrated at a very unique venue that's actually a former yarn-dying factory in Philadelphia PA.
This husband and wife duo made very personal and somewhat non-traditional choices that showed their guests their special and shared interests. It's clear they were made for each other and we love to see that.
What was your wedding date and location?
"We were married on October 2, 2021 at Globe Dye Works in Philadelphia PA."
How did you and your significant other meet?
"We met the summer before our senior year of college, in 2011, through mutual friends at school."
How did the proposal happen?
"We originally wanted to get married on October 10, 2020 and because we knew we wouldn't be the only ones, we started touring venues and researching vendors in early Spring 2019. I (Jasmine) did not want a traditional proposal (no ring, no bended knee) but Jamey is a romantic so as a compromise, he woke me up one day during summer 2020, told me he loved me while I was still half-asleep and presented me with a ring. Then we did a weekend staycation in Long Island City."
Tell us a little about yourself and your significant other. Where are you from? What do you do for a living? Do you have any fun/unusual hobbies,skills, passions?
Jasmine is from Philadelphia and Jamey is from a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. She works in Health Promotion and Jamey is a Marriage and Family Therapist. When enjoying hobbies together, they love to drink craft beer, hike, and travel the world. They can often be found sitting side by side on their couch with Jamey playing video games and Jasmine reading a book.
How did you choose your venue/date?
"We originally wanted a day that'd be warm but not hot and October felt like the best option. Our initial scheduled date was October 3, 2020 but COVID caused us to delay the celebration to the following year. We prioritized spaces with a lot of light or that were surrounded by nature. When it came down to a large botanical garden or the textile dying factory-turned arts and events space, we chose the latter for its exposed brick, various rooms for activities, and interior style that needed minimal decoration."
