His friend begged and begged him to set him up on a blind date with the “perfect girl.” Finally, Logan agreed. And as the blind date commenced, he left feeling indifferent and with his mind on the girl that sat behind him in the classroom at the local university. The bubbly hazel-eyed girl seemed fun, bright, and driven. So he made the move. But as much as Amber knew she wanted to date the man that made her laugh until her sides hurt, she knew it wasn’t time. As months progressed, they became good friends who met up for coffee, a good movie at the theater, and exploring Fort Wayne.
Friendship progressed to dating, and dating progressed to Amber getting a phone call one morning from Logan, explaining the rules and guidelines for the surprise he had planned on the unexpected Saturday. And as Amber explored Fort Wayne on the scavenger hunt, revisiting all their favorite spots that they frequented throughout the years, she knew something was up. When she finally reached Logan – standing in the middle of a garden at Goeglein’s Homestead – he had a ring in his hand and a question on his lips.
They’ll celebrate their wedding day this fall at the same place where they became engaged, surrounded by the family and friends that have supported them on this wonderful journey to marriage. Amber and Logan, thank you a ton for exploring Huntington with me, suffering through mosquitos and the heat. You are the best souls and I can’t wait to celebrate with you in October! xx- M
He was just a boy in her math class. Just a boy that she tried to hide her papers from, as he attempted to slyly take a look at her algebra answers. Just a boy that she passed in the hallways of their high school. But she was the pretty blond hair, blue eyed girl that stood out among all the others. The girl that captured his heart instantly. The girl that he prematurely blurted out his feelings too. The girl who he spent months trying to talk too, the girl who he wanted to spend the rest of his life with – even if he didn’t know it yet.
A friendship formed, and then a relationship. Seven years flew by. Seven years of laughter, countless jokes, hugs, and tears brought Carrie and Josh’s hearts so close that they became inseparable. Marriage was not on Carrie’s mind, because she had him- that was all she ever wanted. But on a cold winter day in the middle of an empty ice rink, all of that changed as Josh slipped the diamond onto the girl who stole his heart in the high school hallway.
A few years later, the boy and the girl got married on a humid but gorgeous midwestern day. Their wedding was filled by the very best of family and friends who eagerly surrounded the couple with an outpouring of love. Carrie and Josh, thank you x1million for letting me witness the incredible bond you two share – you two have the kindest souls – xx, M.
