Do you have any interesting stories to share about getting to know one another?
We “dated” back in middle school when Ryan was 11, and I (Jordyn) was 12. We met at the Solon Home Days festival (in 2007). Our very serious relationship lasted all of three weeks but my mom let me bring him as my date to my Uncle Dan’s wedding. We always followed each other on social media and went our own ways. Our last year of college, a month before winter break (he went to Miami University and I went to Ohio University) he messaged me on Instagram and said, “ I’m not sure if you remember me and our very serious relationship, but I would love to take you out over winter break.” We went on our first date and the rest was history.

How long were you together before you got married?
Five years.

When did you know you wanted to marry your partner?
I have always wanted to go into medicine. Ryan is the most supportive man in the world for my career choice. He lifts me up when I am down, he talks me out of anxiety, he has traveled with me across the country for my career choice. The moment I truly knew he was the one was when I cooked us pancakes on a mini camping trip we went on. It was pouring rain and I could not get a good fire going. I am a terrible cook as is, but this made it even worse. The pancakes turned out so burnt. I said we can drive to a restaurant nearby, get a nice meal and hotel. He smiled, ate every bite of the pancake and continued to tell me how great they were. We slept with burnt pancakes in our bellies.
Ryan: I always knew after our first date in Shaker Square.

What was the best part of wedding planning?
Trying the cake! (And) getting to spend time together making decisions for our big day.

Was there any spot-on advice you received prior to the big day, either in terms of the wedding or lasting relationship?
Have date night at least one time a week, take small trips or adventures once a month, and go on big vacations once a year. Dating your spouse is always important. Don’t become roommates.

What was the most fun or interesting Jewish aspect of your wedding/partnership?
Our grandmothers became the best of friends after we started dating. They are just two peas in a pod. We love going out with them on what we call “double dates.”
Also, signing the ketubah was a lot more special than we anticipated. It’s like having a fun secret when we signed behind the beautiful script.
And Ryan would say the “Hava Nagila” (hora) – you could see the joy in his face while being lifted in the air.

There is nothing more emotional than seeing friends and family all in one place to celebrate marrying the love of your life. The reason we decided to stay in our hometown roots of Cleveland, Ohio was to have our grandparents present. So, words cannot explain how much it meant to have the perfect day, beautiful flowers, the sun shining and seeing our smiling grandparents, who are all the best of friends.
