Real Couple Q&A: Marisa & Jon

By The ThirstyNest Editors


After going on a day trip with Marisa and some mutual friends to Santa Barbara, Jon knew he had met the one. Between the beautiful beaches and Pinot Noir-perfect climate, we've fallen in love with the region too.

Soon after, Marisa & Jon returned to the same spot to pop some bottles and some questions. She said yes of course and we're so excited to have them as one of our amazing couples!

Check out how they plan their ThirstyNest registry while sipping on Cambria Pinot Noir from their favorite spot, Santa Barbara.

1. So, tell us your meet-cute story?

So we actually met in my driveway… To explain, my best friend invited me on a trip up to Santa Barbara for the day and Jon was also invited (we had never met before). Since I was on the way, Jon picked me up at my house and the three of us spent the day exploring Santa Barbara together. We instantly hit it off and he asked me out on a date the following weekend. Santa Barbara is such a special place to us now, we always go back to visit- it’s actually where we got engaged!

2. What do you guys like to drink at home?

Our go-to is Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay , we love making dinner together and enjoying a glass of wine. It’s one of our favorite ways to spend time together!

3. What’s your most memorable imbibing experience together?

Our most memorable imbibing experience together was when we went up to Paso Robles to celebrate New Years. We rented the coziest little Airbnb in a vineyard and spent the entire weekend visiting local wineries. It was such a romantic and relaxing getaway!

4. How did you decide on a wine and spirits registry?

Since our wedding is rather unconventional we wanted a registry that was just as unique and that best suited our needs as newlyweds. We already have a fully furnished apartment and so we didn’t need many of the items that you would traditionally put on a registry. We love entertaining and trying new drinks so we thought a wine and spirits registry would perfectly suit us!
