Renee and Jeff

Labor Day Weekend

08.30.19 – 09.01.19

Our Story

Our story began in a bar (shocking, we know!).  It was U.S. Thanksgiving Day in 2011. Renee and her best friend, Kami, drove up from Seattle to check out Vancouver for the first time.  They decided to stop in to Ceili’s Irish Pub to grab their first drink. Jeff was hosting a group of friends at a Covenant House Vancouver charity event.  As fate would have it, Jeff and his friend Kevin happened to decide to stop in to Ceili’s after the event. Kevin kindly introduced himself to the girls and asked if they would like to check out his new boat (repeatedly).  Jeff, who was wearing a tux, eventually came over to the table. Jeff and Renee chatted for a bit allowing Kevin to tell Kami more and more (and more) about the boat. Kami quickly had enough and it was time for the girls to go.  As the girls were leaving, Renee snuck her business card under the table to Jeff (to avoid Kami’s disapproval) and said good-bye.

Months later, Jeff could not get Renee’s smile out of his mind and reached out to her.  It turns out she had been thinking of him as well. They made arrangements to meet in Monterey in March.  After a great weekend, they didn’t see each other again until June. Jeff set the bar pretty high with a date in New York to watch the Belmont Stakes and to attend a Covenant House charity event, sharing box seats at Lincoln Center with Jon BonJovi and his wife.  

Needless to say, it was the beginning of a wonderful romance and love story that has covered many miles.  We are delighted to have you be part of our story as it continues our wedding day.
