These two met the old fashion way… through a mutual friend named…Tinder! They really hit it off and started to see each other more often, which lead into dating. They love spending time together. They love to go on adventures and experience new places, try new foods, and binge watch Netflix. Karen loves Jon’s quirky sense of humor and awkward dance moves, and Jon loves Karen’s big heart and loving spirit. Jon wanted Karen to be his forever girl. Jon proposed to Karen at Seaport Village in the same location that his dad proposed to his mom over 35 years ago. How sweet is that. Karen of course said “yes” and the wedding planning was in full force. They had their big day at the beautiful Ethereal Resort. The venue is gorgeous and full of charm! They loved the rustic vibe and the lush greenery.

We loved working at the beautiful Ethereal Resort! Here is what a person thought!
“This was by far one of the most breath taking weddings I have ever been to. We were all extremely lucky because the day before the wedding, it was raining pretty hard. The next day, May 3rd, the weather was sunny and so beautiful! The bride and groom decided on a very rustic, simple, but so very beautiful wedding (I continuously say “beautiful” but I am actually in a lost for words). The theme fit the bride and groom very well, and being a guest here made me want to have my wedding very similar to this, and at this exact location!
My boyfriend and his friends were the groomsmen, and helped with the decor. The venue was already so beautiful and very intimate, then just adding my boyfriend and his friends’ decorations/ signs/ games just made the whole ceremony come together so beautifully (Original Greek located in Walnut, CA).
One of my favorite parts of this wedding was the men’s washroom. There were games inside the lounge room and their restroom is ridiculous! I hadn’t seen the bride’s washroom but I’m sure it was probably more mind-blowing than the mens!
The servers walked around with delicious hors d’oeuvres while everyone played games and took photos. As dinner came, the employees brought out plates and bowls of mashed potatoes, salad, and steak that we could all dig in from. There was a bar open throughout the ceremony and only $6 for a sangria?! Why not!
I would definitely love to have my wedding here some day, far far in the future. I’ll be sure to add this venue on my list!
CONGRATS JEROME AND STACY! WE LOVE YOU GUYS! :)”
