It all begins in Nebraska in May 2016. Jake was born and raised in Omaha, while Elicia, who grew up in Sacramento, was finishing up her first two years of medical school at Creighton University. She was studying one night at the bar where Jake was working. We got to chatting and went on our first date the next day at Wilson & Washburn, downtown in the Old Market.
Three and a half years later, we’ve moved to two different states together, explored everything from national parks to mountain tops, traveled abroad, and adopted our ball-of-energy puppy--Maddie. In May 2019, Jake popped the question during a picnic at Baker Beach in San Francisco, and Elicia said yes! Together, with the love and support of family and friends, we’re excited and looking forward to taking on whatever adventures life has in store for us!
