Ilana and Jeff | Weddington Way CEO gets Engaged!
Congrats to our friend Ilana, CEO of Weddington Way.
Weddington Way is an online boutique that offers the modern bride a highly curated selection of top brands in wedding party style. Here’s the story of Ilana and her new fiancé Jeff:
My life is dramatically different than it was just a few years ago. I’ve met and fallen in love with Jeff, the man with whom I am going to spend the rest of my life. Jeff was totally unexpected. We met at Stanford, where we were both MBA students, when I was totally consumed with starting Weddington Way (and attempting to keep up with my coursework and friends) and wasn’t paying much attention to guys. He was totally not my type. Most guys I’ve dated in the past did not grow up in the U.S. and had names that my grandmothers could barely pronounce. Jeff, on the other hand, grew up in Seattle and sported slightly shaggy blonde hair, big blue eyes and adorable dimples, an all-American boy through and through (yes, he’s adorable). A couple of months after we met, Jeff grabbed my attention the day before a charity auction at school when he sent me an email telling me that he wanted to get to know me better and asked that I buy a lamb dinner that he had submitted to the auction so that he could cook for me. I bought his lamb dinner at that auction over 2 years ago and haven’t looked back since (he still cooks for me, almost every night – yes, lucky, I know!).
On my 29th birthday, while Jeff and I were enjoying breakfast outside on a weekend getaway to Napa, Jeff got down on one knee and asked me to spend my life with him. There was nothing to say but “YES!”
I’m filled to the brim with joy and deep contentedness because I get to spend the rest of my life with the person I love!
