Michael and Kathy Lipe of Woodinville are very pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Jenna Lipe, to Derek Carley, son of Jim and Debbie Calrey of Woodinville.
Jenna and Derek are both graduates of Woodinville High School, although they didn’t attend at the same time.
Derek graduated in 2005, just before Jenna transferred from Redmond High School and graduated from Woodinville in 2007.
They were both heavily involved in the Woodinville High School drama department.
Derek and Jenna met and fell in love at Studio East youth theatre when Jenna was 15 and Derek was 16.
They spent four of their nine years together in a long-distance relationship while they each studied musical theatre — Derek at the University of Michigan, and Jenna at New York University.
They are currently living and working as actors in New York City.
The happy couple will be married in Washington on August 31, 2013.
