2012 BEFORE THE RING. Jen Keiser and Dave Neundorfer’s love story began in

graduate school, the moment they first laid eyes on each other at a gathering for new students. “There was an instant connection," Jen says. Over time, it became clear that there was a spark between them, and as soon as they were both single, Dave finally asked Jen out. Their relationship weathered a year and a half of long-distance love after graduation before Jennifer moved from Los Angeles to Cleveland to be with Dave.

impromptu long weekend in the countryside. Assuming the trip was an early Christmas gift, Jen was delighted when they arrived at a romantic bed and breakfast. Following an afternoon of pampering and relaxation, Dave suggested they take a stroll on one of the nearby trails. The couple wandered through the woods hand-in-hand, until Dave paused in the center of a beautiful clearing. As winter's first snow flurries drifted around them, Dave asked Jen to be his wife. The pair returned to their suite for a cozy celebration, complete with a crackling fireplace, champagne, and chocolates. THE DAY & DESIGN. In an elegant twist on classic Old Cape style, the couple

wove seaside touches and rustic sensibilities into the details of their day. "We strove to create a country-chic atmosphere, while still accenting the dreamy seaside setting," Jen says. Following a waterfront ceremony, the newlyweds welcomed guests to a tented celebration, where burlap linens, mercury glass vessels, and pink peonies topped family-style farm tables, and place cards arranged with sand and seashell accents guided guests to their seats. Napkins with fun facts about the couple and custom photograph table numbers added a playful twist. "Our favorite moment of the day was our first dance," Jen says. "Surrounded by our friends and family cheering us on to Steve Winwood’s 'Higher Love' really started the party."
