Mike and Monica’s love story started when they were in their first year of university, and Mike had his eye on Monica. Monica did not notice him at all, so he had to work hard to get her attention! It took him about a semester to make the relationship “official” and they haven’t parted ways ever since ♥
The proposal started at Monica’s birthday when she decided she would head over to a friends trailer and celebrate with all her friends. Everything was going amazing, until she realized Mike had forgotten to give her a birthday gift and to top it of had not even wished her a happy birthday! It was the next day, when they were all having breakfast, that Monica decided she could not let it slide, and made a snarky remark about it. All her friends suggested he should take her out to the lake on the boat to make up for it. She was really annoyed and refused at first, but eventually her friends convinced her into going (They were all aware of the plan)
When they were in the middle of the lake, Monica realized Mike hadn’t brought any fishing gear. That’s when she knew there was definitely something something “fishy” going on!
Moments after, Mike found two big rocks and suggested they get out of the boat there. He took out a ring pop (haha!) which was later exchanged with a diamond ring, and asked Monica if she would spend the rest of her life next to him. She said yes and says: “I’ve been the luckiest girl ever since.” After 1.5 years of being engaged her dream winter wonderland wedding took place. She went for white, silver, and blue as her main colors; these made Silver Lakes Golf Club look absolutely amazing. Here are some of her favorite pics:

Some words of widsom from the bride: “I would tell future brides to make sure their wedding party consists of the ladies in their life who make them happy and would do anything for them, because when you have a party full of people who care deeply for you, your stress level is a lot lower during your planning process. My Bridesmaids were amazing, and if I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t exchange any of them.”
