“We began our wedding planning in July 2018, which now seems light years away. We can recall the rollercoaster of emotions, numerous phone calls to deliver the good news, and all of the decisions which seemed daunting at the time. The whole idea of a wedding fascinated us. Hundreds of our favorite people flying in from over the nation, gathered in once place, enthusiastically loving love. We were so ready. By 2019, our venue was booked, Hannah said “yes to the dress”, food tastings on their way, and we were planning our engagement shoot with Jamie.
Our saving grace happened on December 15, 2019. After much reflection and prayer, we decided to elope amongst our parents on The Blue Bridge in Grand Rapids, to start our marriage off in God’s grace. This choice kept us at peace amongst the list of changes that were to come upon us.”
