Everything was in place for what would have been a beautiful wedding. At the last moment, however, Jason Campbell pulled the plug on his wedding to long-time girlfriend Yenicia “Jenny” Montes.
The Washington Post reported that a high-profile wedding between the Oakland Raiders quarterback and his fiancee was called off and the exact reason has not, as of yet, been released.
The wedding was going to take place at a Dominican Republic resort. There were 23 wedding-party participants and a list of 162 guests, and they received a shock when they landed for the wedding.
The guests were received at a welcoming party where they were told that the wedding was canceled, but the specific reason was not divulged.
The Post spoke with Campbell, who shed a bit of a light on an odd turn to what should have been a joyous occasion.
Campbell answered questions about the situation and the rumors that he left his bride-to-be at the alter.
"That stuff is just crazy," he said. "Jenny’s a good person and I’m a good person. I don’t even know why people would put all those lies out there."
He went on to say that the two "just made a vacation out of it," which raises the question of how all the guests felt about the wedding turning into an impromptu offseason respite.
As far as what lies ahead for the two, that is largely up to Campbell, who sounds like he is going through a lot of personal issues at the moment.
The Post's report continued:
"It’s just the fact that I have a lot going on right now with recovering from injury," he said Tuesday. "There’s just so much going on in both our lives right now."
"...We’re taking everything one day at all time, trying to let all the air and the dust clear."
Marriage is hard enough with both parties fully committed from the start. While it might be a tad unsettling for the guests that came to see a wedding, Campbell did the right thing by not jumping into something he was unprepared for.
Here is to hoping things work out for all involved.
