How did you meet?:
Camille and Josh met in 2007 during their senior year in high school in a graphic design class, they were two strangers who by chance happened to sit next to each other on the first day of class and became good friends. It wasn’t until January 4th, 2009 after being out of high school that they went on their first date, and the rest is history!
Josh had planned a surprise trip to a nice lodge in Traverse City for Camille’s upcoming birthday in May before he went ring shopping, so he thought this would be the perfect picturesque location to ‘pop’ the question while they were enjoying their long weekend trip. After being incredibly nervous and without a definite plan beyond asking while they were in Traverse City, Josh decided he wanted to ask the first night after they arrived. They drove through old mission peninsula to the very end where there’s a lovely lighthouse and beach and went for a walk. After taking a few photos and walking around, Josh nudged Camille to rest on a nearby bench and enjoy the scenery and sunset. After a few moments of nervous mental preparation, Josh got on one knee and asked her to be his wife. She said yes without hesitation!
