SARA + JOSH :: ST. JOHN LUTHERAN CHURCH + CHOCTAW LAKE LODGE || LONDON + COLUMBUS OHIO

Sara and Josh's wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect.  From the gorgeous weather to the abundance of love shared by family and friends, their day was filled with so much joy and laughter. 

Josh and Sara met at a field day where farmers come to view new product.  She was selling seeds for a corn company and Josh came to her booth.  They found out they went to the same college (Wilmington College) but had never officially met.  As soon as they started chatting things just clicked :)

Josh and Sara's first date was at Mellow Mushroom in Dublin, OH; home of some of the best pizza they have ever had- if you haven't been there yet you must go!!  Once Josh knew he had snagged Sara though he came up with some really cute and creative dates, like a winery tour at a small, local vineyard and a picnic out on the farm while watching the sun set :) Such a romantic!!

Josh proposed on the highest hill of Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort in Cadillac, MI.  Since they both grew up on farms and love the outdoors, he knew it had to be outside.  It was the heart of winter so Josh had to be pretty creative.  They loved skiing at this resort during their time in Michigan, so he coaxed her to take the lift to this hill that she hated skiing down (because she's terrible at skiing). Ha!  It overlooked the entire resort and they were the only ones up there for the entire proposal.  Sara could not have imagined anything more perfect!!

It’s been such a pleasure getting to know these two!!  They’re both incredibly kind and the love they have for one another is heartwarming.  I can not express how grateful I am that our paths crossed and that I was able to document such an important day for these two.  Congratulations Josh and Sara.  I wish you nothing but happiness and joy in the years to come.  Cheers!!
