Fraternities and sororities are known to create lifelong friendships among their recruits. When Jenny’s brother joined Zeta Beta Tau at UCLA, he didn’t just find a friend in ZBT – he found his future brother-in-law. After meeting through her brother, Jenny and Brad were soon committing their love to each other in a gorgeous, beachfront ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Leading up to their nuptials, guests of Brad and Jenny enjoyed a taco party rehearsal dinner filled with pops of vibrant color – allowing everyone to relax and let loose before the big day.
As waves crashed on to the beach in the background, Jenny walked barefoot through the sand to her groom who was standing under an arch of gorgeous greenery and white flowers. The couple swapped vows in front of 120 of their closest friends and family at a private villa.
After saying, “I do,” the party began. During the newlyweds’ first dance, fireworks were set off, creating a magical moment. Keeping the fun going, the bride and groom, plus their 24-person bridal party, got down on the dance floor in choreographed fashion, performing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in its entirety.
As the night went on, Jenny and Brad had the time of their lives celebrating one of the most important days of their lives. The reception was a nonstop party with many memorable moments.
“It was hard to beat the unexpected group sing-along to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ everyone in a few circles on the dance floor singing their hearts out in unison,” says Brad.
Their wedding day was exactly what the couple envisioned – celebrating their union and sharing their incredible memories with so many loved ones.
