Jenna Marie Freeman grew up in Lilburn, GA hiking Stone Mountain with friends and spending summers at Pawleys Island with her family and relatives. Jacob Thomas McClendon grew up in St. Marys, GA, spending his time playing soccer for the high school and going to Fernandina Beach.
The two first met during their freshman year of college at the University of Georgia. They had many mutual friends who saw that they would make a perfect couple. Their great friends set them up to go to sorority formal together, and they immediately clicked.
The couple bonded over their mutual taste in music, love of traveling, and love of Golden Retrievers. In the blink of an eye, they had dated for almost all of their "double dawg" years that spanned college, law school, and grad school.
Jacob proposed at the Eiffel Tower on a winter trip to Paris and London. A year later, they got a Golden Retriever puppy named Maisie. They look forward to living together in Northwest Georgia and making many more memories together.
