After dating for six months, Ms. Jackson decided that she wasn’t ready to commit to a serious relationship. They split up and dated other people while still living across the hall from each other and working to maintain the group friendship. “That was very difficult,” she said. After a year they realized that they wanted to be together and jumped back into a relationship.
In 2018, they decided to move in together and found an apartment in Downtown Brooklyn. “I proposed to Annie on her birthday in 2019 in that apartment,” Mr. Wiggins said.
The two were married July 17 at Snowpine Lodge in Alta, Utah. Katie Neal, an ordained minister through the Universal Life Church, officiated.
All 150 guests took over the lodge for the summer camp-themed wedding with three days of hiking, swimming, karaoke, star gazing and dancing.
“The weekend was everything we ever hoped for — s’mores under the stars, hiking, amazing music, hours of dancing, multiple moose sightings, and most important, fantastic company,” Ms. Jackson said.
“It blew my expectations out of the water,” Mr. Wiggins added. “I wish we could get married every single year.”
