Jill + Keegan’s love story was meant to be. Their families are longtime friends. Accordingly, it seems like fate that the pair fell in love. Their luxurious wedding on New Year’s Eve was one for the books. We thoroughly enjoyed making their Ritz Carlton Denver wedding video.
Mother Knows Best
Jill + Keegan’s families have been friends for decades. Despite this connection, they didn’t officially meet until 30 years later, when a chance meeting brought them together. They ran into each other in a hotel lobby at the Army-Navy Football game in Philadelphia. As it turns out, Jill’s mom had been trying to set the two up for two years! She had even shown Keegan many pictures of her daughter, hoping they would end up together. It wasn’t until Keegan and Jill officially met that they realized she was indeed right. Thanks, mom!
A year and a half later, Keegan and Jill traveled to West Point in New York to celebrate his mom’s retirement. Jill’s parents had also flown in since their families had been friends for so long. Keegan was also a recent graduate of West Point and couldn’t wait to show Jill around the academy. After a long tour, the couple ended up at “Trophy Point.” They accidentally interrupted a wedding at the location, but Keegan refused to leave. He noticed a family friend nearby and asked if she would take their picture. Jill reluctantly posed for a photo, and before she knew it, Keegan was down on one knee. He proposed, and Jill enthusiastically accepted. As it turns out, his mom’s ‘retirement party was really an engagement party! They celebrated with many of their closest friends and family members.
A Ritz Carlton Denver Wedding
Jill + Keegan were married at the glamorous Ritz Carlton in Denver, Colorado. What a way to ring in the new year! Jill and Keegan were blessed to celebrate their big day surrounded by all the people who mean the most to them. Jill’s first look with her dad was a moment they will both treasure. Jill’s favorite moment from the wedding was when she turned down the aisle to see Keegan’s face for the first time. His expression conveyed the perfect mixture of nerves, excitement, and pure joy!
The wedding reception was a blast. Everyone was in a festive mood to celebrate a new marriage and New Year’s Eve on the same night! Jill and Keegan danced like nobody was watching. They both agree their last dance was their favorite moment together. In a room full of people, it felt like time stopped so they could enjoy a special moment together. Their military wedding was particularly important because they were able to honor Keegan’s service and celebrate with many guests that are now deployed.
The Next Chapter
Keegan and Jill went to Cancun for their honeymoon. They enjoyed the beach, the food, and the spa. It rained most of the time they were there, which meant they had plenty of time to enjoy each other’s company without any distractions.
Jill + Keegan look forward to their future together. They can’t wait to travel the world and are confident that their love can handle any obstacles life throws their way. Their story is just beginning, and the newlyweds look forward to writing the next chapter together.
When we asked the couple what it was like working with Aflatis, they shared,
“We were referred to Adam by a waitress at Always, where we went immediately after signing our contract with the Ritz. She showed us her wedding video, and I instantly knew I wanted Adam to do my wedding as well. I would absolutely recommend him to other couples as he was able to showcase every minute of our wedding in all the right ways. He listened to all of my wants and needs in a wedding video and made it come to life. If I could do it all over again, I would have Adam do our wedding a million times over! Adam is the best in the business, truly!”
