Jenna was photographed in a gorgeous white off-the-shoulder gown covered in delicate floral embroidery from Netta BenShabu and Kinsley James Couture Bride.
David opted for a timeless classic with a black tuxedo from featuring slender notched lapels.
The couple were mindful of safety for their guests amid the pandemic and opted to have a more intimate wedding than they otherwise would have, though they still had room for an impressive 104 guests.
‘We always dreamed of a wedding on the smaller side, but with COVID, we definitely had to scale back more than we anticipated,’ Jenna said.
Happy day: ‘We were elated and so grateful that we didn’t have to push our wedding and that we got to have the day of our dreams,’ Jenna said. ‘It was such a gift that we were able to share it with our friends and family’
‘Having our closest family and loved ones there (safely) was a priority for us. By setting the expectation from the get-go that we had to limit guests, we were able to focus our planning and ensure that we could stay flexible in case any element of the day needed to change,’ she added.
The lovebirds have been together met on Jenna’s first-ever Hinge date in June 2018, where they hit things off immediately.
In August of last year, the beaming couple announced their engagement on Instagram with some help from their adorable French Bulldog Bear.
‘Yes, a million times, yes,’ Jenna gushed in her caption.
The special day wasn’t a huge surprise to the singer, as she had already helped design her glowing diamond ring with David, though he didn’t tell her when he would be popping the question.
