How did you meet?

We met in the Summer of 2011.

My best friend Kailey and myself were still friends with her high school sweetheart Will, and he invited us down to his friends dock party.

That “friend” was Mike, so we met at the dock, and we became friends and spent the year sailing and racing together.

In 2012 we started dating officially.

Since then we had been sailing and skiing and spending as much time together as possible!

Tell us about the Proposal…

We were in Florida for a distance sailboat race, the Everglades Challenge.

Due to a last minute injury (cut my ring finger, of all fingers, pretty badly during the boat setup the day before the race), we had to drop out.

So we went on to vacation at the finish in Key Largo.

After a morning of kayaking, Mike asked me if I wanted to go check out a boat that had just finished the race over on the beach by our hotel.

As we walked over, he said, “lets go get some pictures at the end of the dock since we never get any pics” (which is true haha).

We walked out to the end of the dock and he asked our friend Todd to take some photos, after a few normal pics, he said “ok one more pose”, and he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him.

All our fellow competitors were on the beach, as well as all our family who had come down to watch us race (or so I thought).

What do you love about each other?

I love that Mike is so passionate about what he loves and driven to take on new challenges/adventures.

He is also someone that can calm me down in an instant because he’s so level-headed and such a jokester.

Quote from Mike when I asked about what he loves about me: “Your fiesty-ness and ambition”

We collectively love that we have true best friends in each other. No matter what sailing/skiing/life adventure lies before us, we’ll embark on it together.

Tell us about your Wedding Plans…

We want the story for our  Florida wedding to be centred around our love of the water and entertaining.

This was the idea behind our ceremony on the Sky Terrace overlooking the Gulf.

Our cocktail hour on the Belleair terrace was something to tie in our love of the outdoors.

Why did you choose your wedding location?

We love the Clearwater/St. Pete area, and the idea that you have bodies of water on both sides of the land.

We wanted a location where we could take in the beautiful views of the Gulf.

We also wanted to get married in a place where we felt like we could be on vacation and Florida has always been a winter escape for us from Ohio where we could sail and enjoy some time in the sun.
