I can’t tell you how thrilled I am about Kelly guest blogging today. Her
wedding was so incredibly beautiful and all the thoughtful and handmade
details throughout make it that much more special and unique. I asked
Kelly if she wouldn’t mind sharing a few details about how they came to
be as a couple. She was kind enough to oblige…

Jeremy and I both grew up in a small Michigan town, both graduated from the same high school, but did not meet until many years
later.  We stumbled upon one another at a mutual friend’s wedding,
where we spent the night talking, dancing, and the rest is history!

While vacationing in Mexico a year and a half later…The proposal was
romantic, surprising, and came without a ring.  I had already expressed
little interest in a traditional diamond, so we set off in search of
the perfect ring….we found a champagne topaz and had it set in a
delicate white gold band.  We spent the remainder of the week enjoying
our time being newly engaged and shared the news with family and
friends when we returned home.

Jeremy and I are now living in Chicago and just about ready to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary!


Stay tuned for so much more….
