Kate & Jamal were set up by their very own cupids Janelle and Kylan for a double date. In true modern love fashion, Kate first creeped on Jamal’s social media before agreeing to a double date.
“The next thing I know, we’re all awkwardly hanging out the next day. We went for food and I realized that I thought Kate was cute and I wanted to get to know her more.” -Jamal
The double date led to an peer-pressured kiss and the exchange of phone numbers, followed by staying up all night on the phone together, planning out their true first date. After a summer of hanging out and falling in love, Jamal threw a party where they made their relationship official and began a long distance relationship once school started up again.
“I started to realize how incomplete I felt when we were apart.” -Jamal
Jamal spent months creating a proposal plan and a ring he “poured every ounce of thoughtfulness into”. Kate thought she was recording a video with a friend until Jamal popped out, surrounded by their friends & family.
Knowing quick decision making is stressful, Kate & Jamal heard about Jenna’s wedding coordination service from a friend. They wanted their wedding to feel relaxed, simplistic and elegant, and their priority was to eat good food and see their family dancing.
“We didn’t think we needed a planner until three weeks before the wedding and Jenna jumped right in. Within a few days, I felt that she had been planning with us the entire time. I never felt an ounce of stress during my day because I knew she had my back and had everything covered.” -Kate
“Leading up to our day, we were able to finalize timelines and leave our vendors in capable hands that ensured they were clear on expectations and ready to turn our day into a day we would remember forever. The day of, we had not a care in the world outside of ourselves because everything was so well handled by Compass Rose Coordination; there was legitimately no room to panic. Everything about our experience was flawless and catered to our personal preferences.” -Jamal
