Pinecrest Chalet Resort | Wedding Film | Jason + Dannica
(Video snap shots of the Wedding Film)
Jason and Dannica have enjoyed many adventures together, especially hiking and camping. They've known each other since middle school and they grew up together from children, to teens, to college. Dannica says she didn't visualize her wedding much until she was a teenager and after she met Jason, but when coming to Pinecrest, she knew it was the place she wanted to get married.
They stayed the weekend at Pinecrest with family and friends. It hailed that Thursday and the weather was a source of worry at first, but on Saturday, May 11th, it was bright and sunny.
Dannica writes about their love story:
"We grew up in the same neighborhood and were on the neighborhood swim team together since we were about 9 years old. Love at first speedo site :)
Our young love started by talking through AOL instant messenger 24/7. We went to different highschools so we had to spend our time after school and on weekends together. Dannica moved away for college and we became just good friends, visiting each other here and there throughout a few years. During the last year that Dannica was away for college we reconnected and both realized that we wanted to be together forever. Timing wasn't always on our side, we did long distance after that for about 4.5 years. After Dannica moved to San Diego and moved in with Jason, Jason decided it was time to propose :) Some of our favorite memories together involve being outdoors, camping, road tripping, sipping on wine, and listening to classic rock.
After getting approval from Dannica's dad and after a few months of ring shopping and ring design, we ventured out on a road trip to Arizona. Our very first day and first stop of the trip was in Sedona. Jason had researched some hiking spots and decided one of the spots would be a perfect spot for a sunset hike. It was the most beautiful setting with only a few people at the top where he was going to pop the question. We asked another couple to take our picture with the beautiful backdrop and thats where Jason got down on one knee! It was perfect!"
