PAW PAW, MI
CONGRATULATIONS DEANNE AND JOSH!! This day was so lovely, laid-back, and fun. Josh and Deanne met in little league baseball, when Josh’s dad was the coach. They didn’t really connect until sophomore year of high school, when they were in the same class. Deanne remembers they made plans to go see Toy Story 3 with a friend who backed out. Josh picked Deanne up at her great grandparents house. He explained they were going to see a movie at Kalamazoo 10, to which grandma replied “Be careful you don’t get shot out in Kalamazoo, it’s dangerous out there!” They both laugh about this now. Halfway through the movie Deanne gave Josh a low-five and as soon as he did she took hold of his hand. They were both nervous the whole movie.
Josh proposed two years ago in Grand Rapids, when they had a day already planned at Frederik Meijer Gardens. They met a friend for dinner and then Josh had asked if there was anywhere nice around Grand Rapids to take pictures for Josh’s mom for Christmas. They ended up at Amway Grand Plaza, with all the decorations up for the season. When they headed up to take a few in front of the large chandelier, Josh got down on one knee and proposed. They have since bought their first house together and have been together for nine years.
Here’s to you both! Many blessings on your new adventures together. Thank you so much for choosing me to document your story.
Enjoy the preview!
