Ya'll get ready to read one of the best love story's around. It all began as a friendship on the middle school bus ride. It was 8th grade when these two met but it was not until 10th grade they actually started dating. They say the best marriages start out as friendships, and I am a firm believer.
This love story has accumulated some fun stories over the past 13 years. For instance their first date adventure. These two headed out to watch the sunset in Nick's John boat. Super romantic right?! Well, on the way home it was dark and that poor little john boat took a beating. A piece of wood was lurking in those dark waters and just like a magnet, the boat & wood piece collided. That dent from their first date still remains on their little john boat to this day.
Fast forward 11 years later to the sweetest proposal story. Nick had taken his sister Jessie (one of Amys best friends) to help him pick out the ring. Jessie was ECSTATIC to share this secret but did her sisterly/best friend duty and kept her lips sealed. The poor girl did not realize just how long she would have to wait to share this big news with her family and friends. She said the only time she could share this news was when she was out of town, she would tell every stranger she met because she just could not contain her excitement for these middle school sweet hearts.
The day FINALLY came... 2 years later. Jessie could shout it from the rooftops and welcome her new sister in law to the family!
Amy & Nick had moved into their newly built home on the island, on the drive to their new place, Nick told Amy he wanted to stop and check out the water (or birds) on the causeway. She thought, what a cute thing to do- not thinking anything of it. Nick said he wanted to take a photo so he set up his phone to take their photo and that is where he popped the question!
These two are the definition of outdoorsy & adventurous. When they told me about their wedding venue, I knew it was the perfect location. They spent the weekend camping in cabins with all of their friends & family at the North Landing campground. They spent the morning tanning on the beach then exchanged their vows on the beach (dodged the crazy thunderstorms!) & partied all night in the pavilion to the Billy Joe band. Wasn't Amy just stunning in her gown?! They had an awesome taco spread and seafood dishes by Zest and cupcakes created by Mal's half baked. Thanks to all of the vendors below for making the day extra special!
