Our Story

We are celebrating six incredible and joyous years together! Our story began in St. Joseph, MN; We both attended The College of St. Benedict/St. John's University, where we met through mutual friends and started dating our Junior year in 2012. Fast forward five years, we were engaged on 4.8.17 during a quick trip to Colorado. Anthony got down on one knee while at the peak of a hike, surrounded by a few very important people in our lives. We popped a few champagne bottles at the top of the mountain, toasted to the new adventures ahead and hiked back down in newly engaged bliss. It was an absolutely perfect surprise that made an already fantastic outing even more memorable! <3

This upcoming September 22nd our wedding will take place in Nisswa, MN, an area home to some of our greatest times and countless memories. We are so excited for our family and friends to experience a fun filled weekend at Grandview Lodge in the Brainerd Lakes Area. While you are in town, be sure to sneak in a round of golf, drop by the Ye Old Pickle Factory (local bar located in downtown Nisswa) or check out the Nisswa shops for unique must-have items.

Quick shout out to our parents: Thank you for your unconditional love and support from the very beginning leading all the way up to this special day.

We’re looking forward to sharing our once-in-a-lifetime weekend with all our wonderful guests this Fall! We're counting down the days until we are dancing the night away with all our favorite people. Cheers to the fun times ahead!
