The love story we are sharing today started in elementary school. Ally and Josh first met in 1st and 2nd grade, went to elementary and middle school together and eventually started their love story by dating in 7th and 8th grade. While high school sent them in separate ways, they reconnected in college and have been together since 2012. Take a minute to read about Josh’s amazing proposal:
“We got engaged on Mackinaw Island! Josh flew my parents and I to the island for dinner. He proposed on the bluff next to the Grand Hotel with the Mackinaw bridge in the background at Sunset. Mackinaw Island will always be special to us!”
They wanted to create a wedding day that was formal and fancy, yet with a whimsical feeling with light and airy flowers. Creative Events of Michigan helped create the day of their dreams with arrangements and bouquets in soft ivory and pinks. Ally looked absolutely stunning in her wedding gown from Beckers Bridal – she turned all heads as she walked down the aisle at the West Leonard CRC Church in Grand Rapids. Their reception was held at the classy Amway Grand Plaza Hotel and Special Occasions Event Rental and Design helped created an elegant, romantic atmosphere. Music Host Entertainment was on hand to keep the dance floor alive and ensured guests had a fantastic time. We enjoyed working alongside the talented Hannah Cooper Photography throughout the day as well.
Ally and Josh, thank you for inviting us along to capture your special day. We had a blast getting to know you both and are so excited for your future ahead. We wish you all the best in your new adventures together!
