Their Story

Tatjana and Jonas met in summer of 2010 at The Art Institute of California- Sunnyvale. Never spoke to one another, just a casual whisper of  "hello" or "hi". Just Social Media friends.
 
Five years later, Tatjana was practicing self improvement, searching for guidance for her next chapter in life. So her manifestation came in a form of a message... Around the same time, Jonas took it upon himself to comment on her instagram photo. "You're beautiful" he wrote with a smiley emoji. Tatjana followed her intuition and dm'd Jonas. They got to know one another on a deeper level- personalities, goals, ambitions, values, and ideas all aligned even discovering that they went to the same high school and lived in the same neighborhood. Conversation after another, they unravelled that there were plenty of instances of the universe trying to align their inevitable unification.

In a few short months, Tatjana began to travel with Jonas. Together they got to experience life like they've never had imagined. Visiting 40 states in two years all while filming a documentary. Ten months into their travel, they discovered some life-changing news. They were going to have their first child together- Daris Pantić Balili. It was a happy but scary moment for the both of them. As we all know now, it all happened for a reason.

Fast forward to March 30, 2017, they had a family trip at Zion National Park. The last US state in the west coast that had eluded them for over two years. Leading up to the trip, Jonas kept having gut feelings of what the next chapter of their lives was going to be. So he followed his intuition and bought a ring that Tatjana had picked out, not knowing he was actually going to buy the engagement ring secretly during Vedrana's birthday dinner. Two days later, he proposed and asked for her hand in marriage in the most beautiful surrounding that anyone could have ever imagined. The best part of it all was when Daris helped give Jonas the courage to propose.
 
In 2018, together they achieved yet another family milestone of adding another member to their growing family- Darian Balili.​ Now, they're going to create a solid foundation by tying the knot in their favorite place - Zion National Park and they would be honored to have you there to witness their official unity.
