Michael here… Shua (short for Joshua), our close friend of many years, got married last month. A few of his attributes include being a gifted musician (he even played and sang at our wedding 8 years ago), a book reader who is always eager to have great discussions and tell stories of his own, an out of control collector of many various items ranging from guitars to belt buckles, a die hard Vespa rider, and a friend of Jesus. A couple of years ago we were hanging out at his parents house for the weekend and he told us about meeting a girl named Michelle. That evening, after everyone went to bed, he stayed up into the wee morning hours messaging her and laying the foundation for a future together. That part is history but I will say that she is awesome and so was the wedding! Take a peek into their big day…
Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs!
A very personalized cake…rock star and cheesecake! Shua doesn’t like regular cake so they had cheesecake instead. The mother of the best man made them and they were so delicious!
Meriah here… Michelle has two kids. We love how they were a part of the big day. Here is her daughter assisting Michelle with the dress. She is so lovely!
Our friend Shua. A little on the goofy side at times.
Michelle’s son getting suited up!
Modern Technology moments! A mutual friend was able to watch the ceremony all the way from Moldova. We love you Field and Courtney!
Some of our favorite moments always include candids of family and friends. While Meriah is taking the group photos Michael captures some of these moments with the bride and groom’s closest friends and family.
Shout out to Dwight Schrute III!!! (See series finale of “The Office” a personal favorite show of both Meriah and Shua)
How did this photo get in here?!
