How they met

Meeting online certainly isn't a new concept, but you might also find 'The One' where you least expect it — like on your favorite social networking site. Because Instagram is predominantly a photo and video platform, it's easy to get to know someone before you meet them. It also offers a subtle way of expressing interest in someone through likes and comments. That's how it all started for Cierra and Greyson Jenista.

"He slid into my DM's and the rest is history," says Cierra, who met her now husband, Greyson. As right fielder for the Atlanta Braves (MiLB), Greyson's demanding career left little options for meeting someone, so he took a chance on the power of a direct message in 2020. The two were engaged in November 2022 in Bachelor Gulch, CO, and tied the knot in January of this year in Conroe, TX.

Cierra reached out to me in hopes I might be available soon for her and Greyson's intimate elopement. She expressed that they had just gotten engaged in November and wanted to get married in advance of baseball season. They didn't want to wait another minute!

This beautiful couple hosted the sweetest private ceremony with only their parents and pastor at the Oak Atelier. Enveloped by a glass house draped in white curtains, they expressed their promises to one another. It could not have been more magical!

After the ceremony, the couple celebrated at Amerigo's Grille, a The Woodlands favorite fine dining establishments.
