The Manns met five years ago when they both worked at SKOB – he was a chef, and she, a server. On her first day of work, Jesse looked at Gina’s best friend and said, “I’ll make you onion rings if you give me her.” Over the next nine months, Jesse tried his best to seduce Gina with his chef skills and food. He even created “Team Jesse” with their coworkers to rally the two together.
The food and team didn’t work, however, maybe it was fate that brought the two of them together.
A group outing to a Modest Mouse concert turned into their first date. Everyone else backed out, leaving the two of them alone and as Gina says, “We have been inseparable ever since.”
Years later, Gina and Jesse ate a “bunch of edibles.” Jesse started crying while professing his love for her, which Gina says is the first and only time she’s seen him cry. They both said ‘Let’s get married!’ and two days later, they did just that.
I hope you enjoy the photos from their beautiful day. Gina and Jesse have an amazing connection that shows in every photo of the two of them, and every last detail of the Mann’s wedding was beautiful, raw and real.
