Jacob and Koral met on February 20th 2016 at a jujitsu tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jacob was there to coach, and Koral was there to watch. Koral had no idea that Jacob had seen her at the jujitsu gym for several months and had wanted to talk to her. He was thrilled to finally have an opportunity. They hit it off very quickly at the tournament, but unfortunately, they got split up during that day somehow, and it was then that Jacob had to go. Right when Koral was realizing that he seemed to like her and was also realizing that he was pretty cute, she realized he was gone. This left her with some confusion as she thought, “Why wouldn’t he say goodbye?” She then thought that there must have been no connection after all, and he probably really didn’t like her.
She would soon find out that Jacob, that night, searched her on Facebook and added her. Koral didn’t see it until the next day, but when she did, she smiled to herself when she saw his profile picture. At the moment when they added each other on Facebook, they realized that they were from the same hometown of Kingman Arizona, a small town 100 miles away from Las Vegas! Quickly after accepting his friend request, Koral messaged Jacob to ask if he was really from Kingman. Jacob remembered that they even had a choir class together ten years prior during her freshman year and his junior year of high school. They never spoke, but even at that young age, Jacob had remembered seeing her in class and thinking she was pretty.
There was not a day that went by after the tournament when they didn’t speak. A few days later, they had their first official date at Skinny Fats, and Jacob asked Koral to be his girlfriend. On November 22nd, 2016, Jacob proposed to Koral in front of a waterfall, near his mom’s house in Oregon and of course she said yes!
If you have been following our blog for a little bit, you might remember Koral & Jacob’s amazing engagement session in the snow storm at Mt Charleston.
Koral & Jacob’s wedding was outdoors at The Springs Preserve gardens, in July at 110 degree heat! They guys were such a troopers in both extreme weather conditions.
We did a first look with Koral and his dad and Jacob and Koral before the ceremony and pictures of the couple and their wedding party.
The wedding ceremony was at the Botanical Garden. Koral’s grandfather married the couple. A little boy and little girl came in front of Koral and his dad carrying a sign: “Here comes the bride” Their cousin was playing the guitar and a friend was singing while the couple tied the unity knot.
After the ceremony friends and family headed to the Divine Cafe for cocktails while we were taking family pictures, than we joined hundred and fifty of their guests to start the party.
Wishing you all the love and happiness!
