Michael and Elizabeth

Michael and Elizabeth met four years ago in a coffee shop on a blind date. Not knowing what to expect or where it would lead. What started out as just drinks and talking for hours then turned into dinner and the rest is history.

During the four years, the two of them battled the long distance game but knew that it was all worth it. When Michael wanted to propose he didn’t want to wait another second. As Elizabeth was dealing with an injury Michael offered to grab her a La Criox. He set it on her bedside table and waited for her to take a sip. Eagerly he asked her, “Do you want a drink?” She looked down and there it was, a ring and the request of forever.

The two of them planned their dream wedding but with a pandemic it was postponed, and then postponed again. the two of them felt that this wedding would never happen. When I had the opportunity to meet the both of them they told me that all they wanted was to just get married at this point. With a little help from friends and family they held their wedding at her friend’s parents place in Grand Rapids. With a full stormy forecast, the skies parted bringing them a beautiful overcast day that did not disappoint their dreams one bit. While they were surrounded by 40 of their closest friends and family they read their beautiful vows and said “I do”. The evening finished off with thoughtful toasts from their guests and showed how much Michael and Elizabeth love and care for others but most importantly that they were meant for one another. Congrats guys!
