Dan and I were introduced by mutual friends. We went on one date and because of our busy schedules and traveling, we were not able to go out again for almost three weeks! After our second date, we definitely knew there would be a third. We were engaged within nine months.
Dan took me back to the restaurant where we had our first date. It was a cold, rainy night in November. Dan got down on one knee right outside the restaurant in the exact place where I first saw him. I was cold and wet, but I had never been happier.
Why They Chose To Marry In Northern Michigan
I grew up in northern Michigan and always knew I wanted to get married there. I had enjoyed visiting Petoskey as a child and loved the Perry Hotel. As soon as we saw the Rose Garden Veranda, we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding.
The weather was absolutely beautiful on our wedding day and the flowers on the veranda were amazing. It was truly our dream wedding!
