Jeremy and I worked in the same building but never met until a mutual friend decided we would be perfect for each other. Though we were skeptical when we met at a casual happy hour after work, we knew something was different. Our relationship grew from there, and our love grew stronger despite meeting four months before I had to move from Omaha, Neb., to Rochester. Jeremy proposed a year and a half later on an amazing family trip to Sweden.
Two months later, he found a job in Minnesota, and we started the planning process. Several of my friends had great tips for wedding vendors in Rochester, and we couldn’t have been happier with the wonderful people who made our dreams a reality. Our wedding was perfect, well, almost. Jeremy’s parents took the limo (reserved for the bride and bridesmaids) from the hotel to the church, thinking it was a special hotel shuttle. After 15 minutes standing in the lobby in my dress, I called the limo company, who informed me they had already delivered the guests! I ended up being only two minutes late to the ceremony and no one even noticed.
The ceremony was very special, and I’ll never forget the look on Jeremy’s face the first time he saw me. After, Shem and Ian from Unique Touch Photography took photos at Chester Woods Park. They made us laugh the entire time while doing an amazing job capturing our day. The reception was at the Rochester Art Center. The heartfelt toasts from our fathers, the best man, and maid of honor made us laugh and cry. Jeremy and I originally planned to leave the reception an hour before the end, but we had so much fun, we stayed until the end. We will never forget that wonderful day and, most importantly, the love and commitment from our family and friends. TWM
