Date of Engagement: November 14, 2015
Wedding Date: June 10, 2017

How Did You Meet?: Jake and I actually met in eighth grade history class. He grew up a few houses down from my best friend (and maid of honor), so they were pretty close friends. Fast forward to our junior year of high school…my best friend was coming over for a Super Bowl party and she got a mutual friend to invite Jake to come along. He came to the party and met my parents and we had a great time. We started dating on my 17th birthday, and have been together ever since!

Engagement Story?: Jake and I love to visit new breweries/taprooms and have relaxing ‘date days’. So, we were on one of our date days going around downtown Flint and exploring new places. Outside of the last restaurant, there was a little brick patio area that was quiet and pretty. This is where Jake proposed! It was nice and laid back, just our style. His mom pointed out the fact that we got engaged in front of a restaurant called Merge, so that has been the running joke ever since. 🙂
