One of the most popular guys at Ramapo High School, John was Jenna's high school crush. But it wasn't until years after they had graduated college that John finally asked her out. "Our first date found us at Houlihan's," Jenna says, "where we spent hours talking, laughing and reminiscing about times shared in high school." John popped the question after about two years of dating. They were traveling through California with Jenna's parents for her 30th birthday. After they had settled in at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, John said the front desk had called about a package. "I brought the package to the room, opened it and discovered the most beautiful engagement ring I had ever seen," Jenna says. "With the ring in hand, John asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes!"
