Amanda Schnee & Jesse Geris

June 29, 2019

Amanda and Jesse met on a night out in Charlottesville, Virginia, where Amanda was finishing up her fellowship at the University of Virginia and Jesse’s company was headquartered in the area. The pair dated for nearly a year and a half before Jesse popped the question. They had a tradition of taking a special trip every spring while Amanda was completing her fellowship, and one year they decided on Iceland. The couple explored Reykjavik, and nearly eloped while there, but settled on an engagement instead, so they could share their wedding with friends and family. They did just that at the Old Cigar Warehouse, where a mutual friend officiated, and both Amanda’s dad and stepfather walked her down the aisle to meet Jesse. Collective Music Solutions kept the party pumped, and at one point in the evening, Amanda hopped onstage to serenade her new husband. The pair lives in Greenville, where Amanda is an infectious disease doctor and Jesse is the North American sales manager for Framatome.
