Wedding Date: August 19th 2016
They met in 2007 when they began working together at Haslett Animal Hospital. They also took classes together at Michigan State University, both working towards a degree in Zoology. They both were friends for a while, dating other people and would hang out on the weekends with their group of friends from work and college. After they were both single, they began spending more time together. Then one night, after having a few drinks , Mary confessed that she adored Aaron, and he admitted that he had feelings for her too — and the rest is history!
Aaron’s Perspective: Of course I thought I wouldn’t be nervous after being together for awhile, but I was wrong. As Mary described above, when I pulled the ring out I had planned to say some things that were romantic and sweet. My nerves got the best of me and all of the things I wanted to say were scrambled in my brain that I couldn’t focus on any one romantic sentence. So within the 5-10 seconds of me trying to think of what I was supposed to say I just winged it. The only thing I thought of was, “Since you survived the everglades with me, will you marry me?” (Dorky and dumb I know, but I panicked) Or something like that. It is all still a blur in my mind. Anyway, she said yes and that is all that is really important. Right!? 🙂
