Destination Wedding: Jillian & Trevor

Long Beach residents Jillian Sorem, 28, and Trevor Yasuda, 29, first met through mutual friends in December 2008, at the Seal Beach Christmas Parade. They serendipitously ran into one another the very next evening and have been inseparable ever since. Six years into their relationship, Trevor surprised Jillian by proposing on the rooftop at downtown L.A. restaurant Perch while a jazz band played one of their favorite songs, “La Vie en Rose.” They got married at the Parker in Palm Springs, hosting 150 friends and family members.
