Follow the Rose Petals

Jennifer and Robert's Real Wedding.
Amanda Christensen

When Robert Osberg was assigned a random roommate his freshman year of college, he had no idea it would take him down a path that ended with meeting Jennifer Yanagida, his future wife. His roommate happened to be a friend of Jennifer’s; after she walked into their room on her first day of classes, she spent the following weeks finding excuses to swing by. Robert spent a good amount of time pretending he didn’t notice—until her consistency paid off. After eight years of dating, Robert took the plunge and left a trail of rose petals in Lincoln’s Wilderness Park for Jennifer to follow. At the end of the trail, she found love notes, flowers, champagne and Robert on one knee. The couple had an intimate wedding with immediate family members in attendance. The space, in shades of blush and burgundy, kept the décor minimal, with simple florals. The mansion holds a special place in the couple’s hearts as it was also the location of their first date, and they returned to it every fall for the scenery and activities. Jennifer’s parents built custom yard games the group played during after-dinner drinks, and everyone ended the memorable night with a hayrack ride to a nearby fire pit to roast s’mores as a family.
