Tell us your love story!
Aaron and I were introduced “from a distance” while I was living in Washington, D.C. My coworker was from western Michigan and had gone to Hope College with Aaron and she planted the seed in both of our ears. After one phone call we both felt like this could be “it.” Aaron visited me two weeks later in D.C., and we started planning the rest of our lives together. We had been dating for 10 months when we were married.
How did he propose?
We went to dinner at Lincoln in downtown Washington D.C. on Valentine’s Day 2017. Later walked to The White House where he proposed!
How did you choose your venue?
I wanted a venue that had southern charm. I loved the weeping willow trees on the golf course of Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa.
What elements were most important for your wedding day to you?
The two things that were very important to us that day were being surrounded by friends and family and the atmosphere. We really wanted our reception to be fun and lively so we chose to hire a band. I was money well spent! People were up on the dance floor before the salad was served and Aaron got to crowd surf.
What advice would you give to other brides?
Wedding planning lasts a minute, a marriage lasts forever!
