Despite the nuptials going off without a hitch, the mom-to-be admitted to Vogue that the wedding planning was a bit stressful given the timing, as aside from COVID-19 issues, her parents were still dealing with the aftermath of their divorce.

"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," Jennifer confessed. "Being able to celebrate our wedding with our closest friends and family was a dream come true."

In addition to that stress, the bride "was in medical school rotations" at the time while her equestrian groom, 31, "was preparing for the Olympics." Nonetheless, they were determined to have a ball during their special night.

"One piece of advice we were given [throughout the planning process] was to remember that this day is about us and our love," she shared. "I think we really kept that at the center of our minds while planning, and we also tried to ensure that our families and friends were able to enjoy themselves."
