The 25-year-old bride, who wore Vera Wang for her special day, spoke with Vogue, and detailed her nuptials were a bright spot in what was a difficult time following her parent's split.

“It’s been a challenging year, both collectively with the pandemic and for our families going through transitions. But our love for one another has been a constant. Being able to celebrate our wedding with our closest friends and family was a dream come true," she said.

The Stanford University grad, who's parents divorce was made official in August, explained, "Planning a wedding while I was in medical school rotations and Nayel was preparing for the Olympics was no small feat."

The young couple also made sure that there were no shortage of Covid safety protocols during the event in order to safely celebrate. “Which is why we made the decision that all guests must be fully vaccinated and receive a negative test result prior to the wedding," Jennifer explained. "We feel incredibly fortunate to be able to gather with our loved ones safely. We know others aren't as lucky, especially as the pandemic continues to devastate communities in the United States and around the world.”
