Jake and Tawni are college friends turned card-game rivals turned travel buddies turned sweethearts. Spend five minutes with them and it's obvious they're best friends and love every second together, whether it's a surf sesh, a grocery shopping date, or a car ride to work (yes, they work at the same place!). Their May wedding at Jake's family ranch in Bakersfield was complete with alllllllll the long-time family friends who have known Jake since he was in diapers, lots of homemade, down-on-the-ranch touches, and a live band that brought the house down and kept the guests dancing long into the starlit night. Oh, and don't miss the drool-worthy getaway car, a contribution from "Pappy," Jake's life-of-the-party grandfather.
