A Martin’s Crosswinds Wedding: Jené + Vance


On this #JourneytoJohnson, we will be taking you through the beautiful love story of Jené and Vance. The lovely couple met while working at Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC. Vance, a respiratory therapist, would frequently come into the NICU where Jené was a nurse. “We worked together for about 2 years before he asked me on a date”, says Jené. 

To fast forward, after the couple got home from their anniversary dinner, Vance got down on his knee and proposed to Jené. 

“At the end of it, I remember him asking me would I marry him and my heart literally skipped a beat. I said yes! Without hesitation. I always wanted a private intimate proposal, with just the two of us, so this was perfect!” – Jené

From that moment forward, they started on their #JourneytoJohnson. 

September 1, 2019 was a beautiful day filled with love, joy, and happy tears. The theme of Jené & Vance’s big day was blush with ivory and gold accents and candles everywhere! The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland, where the couple shared their special moment with close friends and family.

Photographer Terri Baskin met the bridal party at the InterContinental Washington D.C. – The Wharf, for the pre-wedding shots and the first look shots.
