Best friends Tim and Jolene first met nearly twenty years ago. However, it was fourteen years before the two would connect through a mutual appetite for good fiction. With the help of Tim's "match-making" family and media messaging their relationship deepened, and soon Tim was smitten. The problem was that Jolene was clueless to the the affection growing in Tim as he patiently hovered in friend status.

Thankfully, his patience was rewarded when Jolene discovered the love growing in her own heart. Five months later, Tim gave Jolene a birthday surprise she would never forget. Slipping onto one knee after dinner, he asked her to become his wife and share the rest of forever together.

This July they will begin their journey in a beach ceremony at Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort with the help of Felici Events.
