In a game of truth or dare on a girls night out with her besties, Erica was given a challenge: Give your phone number to a stranger in the restaurant. After scanning the room, Erica decided there was only one guy in the building she would give her number to. After a great deal of giggling and much prodding from her friends, Erica jotted down her number, signed it from "two blondes and a brunette", and reluctantly passed a napkin to the bartender, pointing out the dark-haired stranger across the bar from her. With a sly smile in Erica's direction, Justin tucked the napkin into his pocket and that was that.
Two hours later, the phone rang. Justin's voice came over the line: "Hello, is this the brunette?" So began the beginning of their friendship, which would grow into true love over the course of the next year. For 6 years, Erica and Justin have supported each other and pushed each other toward their dreams.
On September 30th, overlooking the shimmering waters of Lake Michigan, Erica and Justin exchanged heartfelt vows. Here's a peek at the magic of that beautiful day.
