When and where did Jessica Pegula marry?

Jessica Pegula and her long-time boyfriend Taylor Gahagen married on October 22nd in 2021. The wedding ceremony was a lavish all-weekend event and was on Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, North Carolina.

Among the many guests at the wedding ceremony were the American WTA players Taylor Townsend, Samantha Crawford, Jennifer Brady and Asia Muhammad.

Who is Jessica Pegula’s husband?

Jessica Pegula’s husband Taylor Gahagen is a 29-year-old American by birth, who doesn’t like to appear much in the public eye and certainly refuses any photos or videos of him to be taken for news purposes. Taylor is a senior investment analyst with a BSc in business administration from the State University of New York at Fredonia.

Taylor Gahagen has had an impressive career as an investment advisor and market analyst. His obsession with privacy means that we don’t know exactly when he and Jessica met, or when their relationship started. However, in a rare slip-up Taylor has allowed a photo of him and Jessica to be taken in November 2015 and this is the oldest image of the couple together. That’s why it’s safe to assume that their relationship began at some point that year. After all, Jessica and Taylor would have had lots of chances to meet by then and here is why.

What is  Jessica Pegula’s husband’s connection to the Pegula family?

Back in 2013, Taylor Gahagen was hired as director of brand strategy and corporate development at Pegula Sports and Entertainment, a company owned by Jessica Pegula’s parents. Taylor worked in that position for 7 years 2013-2020 and it seems at some stage during his early years in the company he and Jessica had got close. Without official confirmation, it seems the two became a couple back in 2015 and after 6 years of discreet dating, they eventually got married in 2021. Both of them describe the other as the love of their life and it seems that Jess and Taylor are happily married and with lots of common passions outside sport too.

The pair share an extreme passion for animals and shortly after their wedding Taylor and Jessica co-founded “A Landing Paw”, a non-profit organisation that supports rescue dogs, trains them to become service animals and delivers them to people who need service or therapy dogs.

The married couple also co-owns a skincare brand named Ready24. Jessica Pegula is the face of this successful cosmetic brand, while Taylor runs the business part of things with a team has personally selected, hired and trained.

It seems the happy marriage is set to continue and this can only be a good thing for Jess Pegula as she continues to go from strength to strength in her tennis career.
