A pink and green Serenata Farm Wedding in Madison, GA
One of our favorite things about photographing weddings is getting to know our couples and hearing their love stories. Their story of how they met is one for the books and we wanted to share it with you!
So tell us, how did you meet!?
It's both a funny and amazing story how Josh and I met. I guess you could say that we were right under each other's noses without even realizing it. Our dad's grew up together in Michigan, and have been friends for years. In fact, our dads were each other's Best Man in their own weddings! Growing up, Josh and I would see each other from time to time (Josh and his dad would go hunting with my dad every now and then) but we never thought anything of it. Josh was a few years older than me anyway, so we didn't have much in common at the time.
Fast forward MANY years later. I was in Respiratory Therapy school and Josh was in basic training. He is in the Army National Guard. Josh posted his address on Facebook to let his family and friends know so that they could write him letters. I thought, "Why not? I'll write him a letter. It's been years since we have talked and I'm sure he is lonely in boot camp. I'm a friendly person, right?" Well, I wrote him that letter, and he wrote me back! He even called me a few times! When his basic training was done, he wanted to catch up with my family, so all of us grabbed dinner. It was so nice catching up with Josh, and he was so funny!! Then, he asked if I wanted to grab dinner the next night...just the two of us. I guess you could say that the rest is history!! After our official "first date", we were inseparable. It was so comforting knowing that Josh and I already knew each other, but this time, it was on a romantic level. We are the absolute BEST of friends and are so blessed to have one another.
