Brianna & Michael's Lake Manatee State Park Wedding



Brianna and Michael are both from Florida and met at a small college in Lamoni, Iowa in 2012. From the moment they met, they knew they would be in this for a long time. They graduated college in 2015 and moved in together in Bradenton, FL in 2016. On one special trip to Silver Falls, Oregon, on April 7, 2019, Michael proposed under the tallest waterfall he could find, masking the ring in a small mitten I had given to him years ago in college. Since then, they have purchased their first home and are now planning on building their family. They can’t wait to see what their future has in store for them.
