So Casie and Michael are fairly new friends of mine. We met right before Michael proposed and I got so crazy excited for her. I was actually worried she may think I was nuts because I was so excited. Time went by and the planning came and went, and then I realized- I was booked on her wedding day 🙁 It was a rough thing to know I wasn’t going to be able to do the one thing I wanted to for her. BUT luck have it Casie and Michael know how to throw a party and that meant a late night reception. So I decided I would take on 2 weddings in 1 day…holy crap I know. It was a terrifying decision and I was so nervous but I can tell you now, it was the best decision ever.
I’m sad I missed their beautiful ceremony at Dobbin’s Landing right on the bay, but when the trolley pulled into The Brewerie at Union Station-I was no longer sad. Casie looked absolutely stunning. Michael looked pretty dapper himself 😉 The reception was full of family and friends who wanted to have a great time and shower the new couple in all kinds of love. It was one of greatest receptions I’ve ever been to.
Here’s the super cute story of how they got engaged from Casie!:
“So we went to Punta Cana last May. I was thinking maybe a ring was a good possibility, but I didn’t know for sure. Each day we were there I was thinking, this would be the perfect time for him to propose, but he never did. He waited until the very last day to do it. We went on an excursion into the caribbean sea and I got very seasick. I was white as a ghost and had to sit in one spot and keep my eyes forward the whole 2 hour ride. When we finally got to the little island we were going to I and I was starting to feel better he suggested we take a walk down the beach. Well it turned out that the beach was only about 100 yards long so our walk was over real quick. So, he kept us walking around the tree lines. Then he pretended he saw a monkey! 🙂 I knew there weren’t any monkeys there but he was so convincing that I actually looked. When I looked back at him he was down on his knee and asked me to marry him. It was my worst day of the trip! I was sick, I felt disgusting. And then I had this exciting moment to distract me until we got back to shore.”
I can hear all of you saying AWWWWE! It really is adorable beyond belief right? They are a great couple you guys. Take a look at some of my favorite from the night 🙂
Don’t they look so fun?! I really am so happy for these two. They are as perfect as it gets for each other and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for them.
Make today great guys!
