Jenny & Mike’s Wedding Day!

September 23, 2023

at Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, PA

Our Story

Jennifer Heintz and Mike Wagenheim met in a design course in 2015 while attending college in Boston. During a studio snack break, Mike was eating an avocado with a spoon (it was a weird phase) and staring at Jen. Later that night she told her roommates about the mustachioed man who was making eyes at her. She was intrigued.

The following week, Mike approached Jen in line at the Subway™ on campus. Mike was listening to “You Get What You Give” by The New Radicals on repeat that week, so he decided to play it over his phone while they waited in line. Jen recognized the song and so did the Subway™ employee making her tuna sub.

Jenny and Mike ended up eating together and immediately clicked. The rest was history. They finished college, moved to Philly, started a design studio together, and adopted their beloved pup, Greta Marie. To this day, Subway™ and that song by The New Radicals holds a special place in their hearts.
