Trevin and Jenn met on the first day of the World Transplant Games in Durban, South Africa last year, which they attended as part of the team from the United States. They spoke during a beach walk and had an instant connection. Trevin and Jenn then became inseparable throughout the Games. Trevin is from Oklahoma and is a pancreas recipient and Jenn is a heart recipient from Pennsylvania. Trevin had his pancreas transplant nearly six years ago and Jenn her heart transplant nearly eleven years ago.
The day after returning home from South Africa Trevin booked a flight to Philadelphia to visit Jenn. Jenn and Trevin quickly realized what a strong bond they have due to going through similar life experiences. They had grown up playing sports, had unexpectedly got sick in high school and then needed life saving organ transplants in college. After dating long distance for a little while, Trevin and Jenn knew they wanted to be together. Trevin had planned to move to Florida to attend school to be a Golf Pro and Jenn got a job in the same area so they were reunited. In December 2013 Trevin asked Jenn to marry him at a candlelit dinner on a beach in Miami, Florida. Jenn was happy to say “yes.”
We had the pleasure of photographing Jenn and Trevin’s Wedding. They tied the knot at the Cira Centre on January 10, 2015. Knowing this story really made the day even more remarkable. The challenges these two battled, only to meet one another in the process is a true fairy tale. I hope everyone enjoys these few teasers! Thanks to Garces Events for an excellent evening. Ny Ny Dueling Pianos absolutely rocked the night! Congratulations Jenn and Trevin! Enjoy!!
