The wedding was a family-and-friend affair. Caroline Alperin, Jill’s niece, and Cynthia Riley, Rod’s granddaughter, were flower girls. Dr. Eli and Sandy Krigsten, Jill’s parents, walked her down the aisle, and Rod’s sons Peyton and Brooks Riley joined him as he walked down the aisle. Jill’s cousin, the Honorable Samuel Myers, officiated, and for the “something old,” the bride carried in her bouquet the wedding rings of her deceased grandparents Susie and Lou Singer.
The wedding cake was gluten-free, with the flour supplied by the couple’s friend Ina Manaster. The gown was customized by Oscar De la salas and Tamara Crawford to match Jill’s vision of how she wanted it to look.
The couple met at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and their first date in Arizona was at Sanctuary Resort’s elements restaurant.
