Emily Rose (Goldberg) Jolly and David Aaron Jolly were married July 1, 2018 at Temple Beth El in Dubuque, Iowa, followed by a reception at Hotel Julien Dubuque. Rabbi Daniel Bogard and rabbinical student Leah Nussbaum officiated.
Emily is the daughter of Kate Scheinman and Larry Goldberg of Dubuque. David is the son of Steve and Jeanette Jolly of Chesterfield.
Lexi Miller and Rachel Walder served as maids of honor. Julia Sears and Skyler Pyzynski were bridesmaids. Michael Jolly served as best man, and Noah Sheppard, Pitt Fagan and Benjamin Goldberg were groomsmen. Amanda Gray and Matt Miller were ushers.
David and Emily met in Madison, Wis., in September 2015 at a Jewish young adult event. They sat next to each other at dinner and continued to talk throughout the evening. The next night they went out on their first date, going bowling and singing at a karaoke bar.
On April 14, 2017, Emily and David traveled to Dubuque to visit Emily’s family and attend Temple Beth El’s annual Passover seder. They arrived at the temple early, along with Emily’s parents and brother, to help set up for the event. When they arrived, David asked to see the sanctuary to see how it would work out for their future wedding. Once they made their way to the bimah, David pulled out a ring, got down on one knee and proposed in front of Emily’s family. Of course, Emily said yes, and 15 months later, the couple returned to the temple for their wedding.
Emily and David reside in Chesterfield.
