Katie and David are two of the kindest, most genuine people one could hope to meet. Even more special is the love that exists so tangibly between them. There is an infectious kind of joy that they share, bolstered by a deep and abiding respect for one another. The struggles and victories they've weathered together have forged a beautiful depth of admiration and love between these two special souls and their families that makes up the center of their universe.
Two years ago, Katie met David for their first date: A Michigan State football game at the beginning of the season. For U of M alum David, this was a sacrificial act in itself. But this girl was well worth it, as David would discover shortly into the evening. Both of them were instantly drawn to the humor and good nature they saw in each other. From that night on, it was a fact: They were happiest when together.
October 2018: On a cool Autumn day in Northern Michigan, in the same place where David spent his childhood, Katie and David exchanged letters and vows against the golden backdrop of a Grand Traverse Bay sunset. They spent the rest of the evening around a dinner table with the people dearest to them, with many laughs and happy tears shared. Such a beautiful beginning for two wonderful people!
