We're J&S

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU,

Hey, there! On any normal day you’ll find us right by each other. We’re rarely apart, and we’ve been that way since we met in college. #inseparablesince2012
We have 3 cats, Beastie, Moose, & Boo. And we used to worry about seeming like a #crazycatcouple, but now that Taylor Swift has just as many cats we’re fairly confident about it (just don’t show us any more cats in need of a home)!
We can hold our own talking about the latest series of  most things on Netflix,  but we also have a strong

belief in getting up off the couch and exploring in nature, the city, or local shops. And we try our best to eat healthy and exercise but sometimes a donut and coffee is what we really need.
Our favorite things in the world are meeting new people to invite to game nights, filling our home with friends and family, and stopping to savor those moments as they happen around us. 
We believe marriage is beautiful, I love you’s are essential, and people come first.

grabbing some

coffee

Cold Brews, cappuccinos,
anything frothy, or chocolatey.
We'd never turn down a slice of coffee cake or a croissant to pair it with.

heading to

brunch

Sunday Brunch is what fuels us.
Brightens our spirits, and motivates us for the week ahead. That's the power of a good waffle and side of bacon.

Becoming Mr. & Mrs.

College dorms, derivatives, and Churro Wednesdays. That's the trinity that became the basis of our friendship-turned-whirlwind romance. Living in the same college dorm, and seeing each other across the giant lecture hall for business calc. Well, he saw her. So within a few days he’d work up the courage to ask her to be his study buddy. And years later, she’d say yes to being his wife (the best yes EVER!). 

But in between, we’d bond over *trying* to study, walking to classes together, and ahh yes. The best day of the week food-wise in the dorms: Churro Wednesday. Our friendship and dorm-living meant even from the beginning, we liked spending a LOT of time together. And we'll always be thankful for our friendship. It’s why we’re such strong believers in marrying your best friend!

Hi, friend!

meet Jocelyn

I’m a quirky balance between structured and silly. And for me, it’s all about the balance. I’m deeply satisfied by a freshly made bed and neatly folded clothes, but I’m always ready for sandy toes and beachy-hair. And I love real things. Real experiences, real emotions, and real people (but fake plants). I’m an introvert at heart, but love being surrounded by laughter, celebration, and community. I enjoy meeting new people, and I’m totally in agreement with Luke Bryan, most people are good!

hey, there!

Meet Spencer

Basically I’m an easy-going guy, with a touch of stubbornness. Like I can’t listen to a song I'm into just once. I must listen to it on repeat for days. Or weeks? And I’ve never met a bread I didn’t like. Except sourdough. I hate sourdough. Also, I grew up on a llama ranch. Yes, a llama ranch. In Bend, Oregon, with arguably the best tap water in the world. I like my drinks Old Fashioned, same with my cars. And my lifelong dream is to restore my 1974 Toyota Corolla and drive it around town looking spiffy. 

The story of us, from churros, to I do's, to why we're huge believers in marrying your best friend
