Couple #1// Elizabeth & JB
Wedding Location// Columbia Manor, Maple Grove, MN
Their Story// Elizabeth and JB’s love story is a little unique. The two met through a mutual friend in high school. JB was the cute boy and Elizabeth was the star struck girl. They hung out a few times with the arrangement of my best friend of course, but they went their separate ways. A few years later, one summer back from college Elizabeth’s best friend and her decided to call him up. From that night on they were inseparable. That is, until Elizabeth went back to school in Hawaii. The couple never lost touched and became best friends. A few years later Elizabeth moved back to Minnesota and her and JB have been together ever since.
He is my friend and soul mate. In May of last year he got down and proposes (I wish I could say it was a surprise, but a month earlier he mentioned this to me over a romantic dinner because well we are best friends and best friends always like to talk first right?)This past August he started Med School in Maine and I am here teaching in Minnesota. These past few months have been tough, but we are doing it. I will be making the move out there this summer. I can’t imagine my life with out him.
Couple #2// Katie & Jeff
Wedding Location// St. Paul, Minnesota
Their Story// Katie and Jeff met about a year and a half ago at a wedding. The wedding was for a mutual friend of the both of them, Katie was a bridesmaid and Jeff served the dutiful role as an usher. After the wedding, however, Jeff returned home to Arizona. Even though he was a few thousand miles away, Katie and Jeff stayed in touch. They talked daily, and sometimes for hours at a time. They got to know each other very well and Jeff decided that a trip back to Minnesota was in order. During this time, the two hung out quite a bit and it was during this visit that Jeff and Katie officially decided to date long distance. The distance was hard but they made it work. In July, Jeff decided to pursue his career as a pilot back in MN. Katie went out, helped him pack up, and drove across the country to bring him home. Since his return to MN they have been inseparable.
Katie has had in mind what she wants her wedding to be like for a very long time. It was always a fall wedding with cranberry dresses for her bridesmaids. They will be getting married in St. Paul, MN on November of 2012, the weekend before Thanksgiving. They are both thankful for each other, thankful for their friends and family who have shown them support throughout the years, and thankful that they are going to be celebrating the rest of their lives together.
