When Sarah first emailed me and requested an outdoor engagement session on November 5th or 12, I thought “no way will it still be nice outdoors”. Wrong! Last Saturday was very windy but it was a beautiful sunny mild day. True, many of the trees had already shed their leaves, but there are always a few stragglers with some remaining color. And, this fall season has lasted longer than usual.
So off we went to Alimagnet Park in Burnsville with Sarah and Mike and their dog Kodiak , a beautiful 3 year old golden retriever that they’ve had since ” Kodi” was an 8 week old puppy. Kodi was instrumental in Mike’s proposal: Mike attached the ring box to Kodi’s collar AND Kodi is going to be their ring bearer next year!
Sarah and Mike grew up in lower Michigan and are getting married there next fall. In fact, Mike graduated from Michigan Tech – the same college my husband Mike and I got our bachelors degrees from! Sarah graduated from Northern Michigan University. When they get married next fall, they will have been dating for 9 years! Yes – they started dating in high school 🙂
