Katie and Adam, what a sweet couple these two are. They met back in 2015 at NMU through roommates. It was their first day of college when these two saw each other for the first time. Katie, Adam and their college friends were hanging out in the dorm, having a good time! They soon realized each others moms worked together in Charlevoix and almost immediately, they became great friends. Within a few years, they ditched being ‘just friends’ and made it official.
Adam actually moved out to Colorado so they spent their first year dating hundreds of miles apart. She was able to visit Adam in Colorado until he transferred to Nebraska until June. Not even 2 weeks later, Adam got a new job back in Michigan and came back home. Nothing could keep these two apart.
In August 2020, Katie + Adam decided to do some wine tasting around Petoskey before attending a family cookout. It was their final stop, Boyne Valley Vineyards, where they tasted delicious wine and listened to live music. Adam went to grab another glass of wine just for Katie but he had ‘forgotten’ one for himself. A couple minutes later, the owner came out with a charcuterie board which Katie realized an engagement ring was on the board. Adam hurried back, got down on one knee and asked Katie to marry him. During this moment, the live band announced the proposal. That moment was full of so much cheer for these two (and they also got some free drinks)! Once they finished up, they headed back home to the cookout which turned out to be an engagement party full of friends and family!
These two have known each other for almost six years, though their relationship started slow, they are the bestest of friends and Katie cannot thank him enough for helping her through tough times. A perfect match these two are!
These two are getting married in September at Castle Farms and I couldn’t be more excited! Leading up to the shoot, I was a little nervous because of all the rain Michigan was getting but we went for it and it turned out to be mostly sunny and clear! It was quite the adventure however…we originally planned Petoskey but luckily, Traverse City had a little more sun and better weather! So grateful Katie + Adam were up for a spontaneous adventure!
Katie, girl your smile is contagious!!
