In honor of our 5-year wedding anniversary I thought I’d share our love story and a few wedding photos!
RJ and I met over 8 years ago at a date party at Central Michigan University. I had attended with a friend and RJ was the DJ and I felt an instant connection. We ended up spending every free minute together and the rest was history!
When we graduated college I took an event planning job on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel and RJ stayed in Detroit to continue his career. Although long distance wasn’t easy, it actually intensified our bond. RJ proposed on August 8, 2010 on Mackinac Island at Arch Rock by inviting both of our families and having a large banner in the water with writing saying “Meagan, will you marry me?”. Of course I said yes and few months after I moved back to Metro Detroit.
Our wedding vision was beachy, romantic and most of all we wanted to our guest to have fun! We found the perfect secluded location on the shores of Lake Huron. We personalized the wedding details to follow our love story, which included the catered menu reflecting our first date of Italian food, our favorite signature drinks, and our wedding favors were a donation to St. Jude.
Hope you enjoyed!
