Real Wedding

Meredith + Joshua Wedding | June 22nd

How They Met

The Bride // Josh and I met when I was home visiting Toledo for a weekend (I was living in Chicago). After a year of long-distance dating, I moved to Ann Arbor to be closer and Josh moved 9 months later... we were engaged 7.2.17 in Lake Tahoe at Emeralds Bay.

Their Wedding

The Bride // Our wedding was a rollercoaster of emotions mixed with a bittersweet feeling, after 9 months of planning and 2 months away we found out my father was sick. As time progressed we knew we had to make changes to our original plan. Brooke from Bee for the Day was a lifesaver, we planned and re-planned then my father passed away 2 weeks prior. The decision was to either cancel and schedule for a future date or replan again. We re-planned once again, Brooke is a superhero! She arranged with Gerri from Serendipity Photography and Tim our videographer and the day went off without a flaw. Oh, besides being rained on twice and a change of location for our first look... with emotions at a high and the situation at hand the day went as perfect as it possibly could.
