Brianna & Patrick
Brianna and Patrick met the summer she was going into her senior year of high school and he was headed for his first year at Michigan State University. They met through mutual friends and have been together ever since! Their relationship has felt right from the very beginning and they are looking forward to building their lives together, including: buying their first home together, traveling, and starting a family.
Patrick planned a date night at their favorite beach, Holland State Park, to watch the sunset together. He packed their favorite snacks and drinks and found them a secluded sand dune to set up the picnic. Brianna knew what was happening the moment he began setting up, so she tried her best to keep her cool her my heart was racing a million miles a minute. Just as the sun was setting Patrick popped the question. Private, romantic, and a perfect sunset!
The Day & Design
Brianna and Patrick would describe their wedding style as modern boho/chic. They went with more minimalistic decor and put more emphasis on the flowers and greenery. Brianna handmade all of their decor and layouts as well! A unique detail from their wedding was Brianna put on a surprise bridesmaid dance for her husband and guests – they even had outfit changes for the dance! They also had a private last dance before their sparkler exit at the end of the night.
The Couple’s Advice
Their advice is to enjoy every moment of the day because it really does fly by. Also, find time throughout the day whether that’s during first looks, right after the ceremony, private dinner, etc. to spend alone with your significant other. And most importantly, have fun!
