With the US Open starting August 29th, Kaptur is excited about tennis and we’re not alone: introducing Jessica and Steven Nelson, a perfect love match. This tennis beau tied the knot last year, serving up some tennis touches.
Check out their beautiful slideshow here.
Both Jessica and Steven had tennis ingrained into their life from a very early age. When they joined The Iowa State University Tennis Club, it was clear they had met their match. And, in their senior year when they both became officers of the Tennis Club and doubles partners, a courtship began to bloom.
So two years later, since it all began on the tennis court, it only seemed fitting that Steven proposed on Center Court at the Iowa State University Championships. As Jessica and Steven walked down to the Center Court, Jessica saw a vase of roses, she knew what they meant and began to tear up.
“He told me how much he loved me and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and that he wanted to make me as happy as I make him,” Jessica said, recalling the moment. “Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said ‘yes’, and we hugged and kissed and then he put a very beautiful ring on my finger!”
When they were married September 4th, 2010, the tennis theme continued. Jessica, a graphic designer, designed tennis ball wedding favors, a court proposal save the date and they had a wedding cake in the shape of a tennis racket.
Jessica and Steven Nelson created a Kaptur of their wedding where you can see all of their tennis touches and more from their lovely day. Just go to www.kptr.it/jessandsteven. Kaptur brings together photos, videos, and updates from your wedding.
