Amanda & John

Our Story
Our Love Story

It all started when Amanda and John both decided to go out with their friends to the same bar one summer night in Royal Oak, 2014. John caught Amanda's eye, he ordered her a drink, they danced, and agreed to go out to dinner the following week. Amanda got cold feet (or was just playing hard to get) and she didn't respond to his text until two months later. John (thankfully) still wanted to get dinner with Amanda. Since their first date, their friendship, love, and commitment grew.

John proposed to Amanda during their first beach vacation together along with John's family. John had made the proposal a true surprise for Amanda. She walked on the beach hand in hand with John on their way to meet his family for dinner. John lead her to a heart drawn in the sand with rose petals filled inside the heart. John proposed in the sunset and the two of them celebrated with John's family over dinner and champagne on the beach. They could not be happier to continue to grow together and begin their new chapter as husband and wife!

CHANGE OF PLANS DUE TO COVID-19

To our friends and family,

This has been a difficult time to navigate through planning a (postponed) wedding due to this pandemic. I wanted to use this platform to inform you of what we believe will happen as far as our wedding goes on July 17th.

Due to social distancing guidelines and phasing we are going through, I anticipate we may not be able to have the large party reception we originally hoped for. We may need to have a much smaller intimate gathering for our wedding day. With that being said, we have not decided yet if we will send out invites to all of you again. If that is the case, then I am sorry and deeply sad that this is what we have to do! Regardless of guidelines, John and I do still plan on getting married this summer, however big or small it must be.

Wishing you all well. XOXO
