That’s right, we got married! We hope this little site will tell you all about the fun we had that special day in September. Check back soon, as we’ll be adding more photos and such!
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone for coming. It was the best day of our lives and being surrounded by you all is part of what made it so special.
If one (or both) of us never got a chance to say hi in person, please rest assured your presence was felt.
Check back soon, as we’ll start turning turning this into a photo/video gallery of all the best moments.
We want to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip to South America next year for our honeymoon, to see Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands! More details can be found over at HoneyFund.
Chad: We met the old fashioned way, at a bar.
It’s true! On Valentine’s Day in 2007, we met at a bar in Richmond, Virginia. After spending quite some time finding the courage, Chad finally approached the bar and talked to Mike. Then, the following exchange happened…
Mike: You should call me sometime.
Chad: Yeah, I think I should.
Calling turned into hanging out all the time. A budding relationship was underway and by that summer it was blossoming into something far more. Fast forward to July 4th (unplanned), and we began officially dating.
In March of 2012, we went on a cruise in the Caribbean. On the second day as we were sitting on our balcony enjoying the cool evening breeze, Chad pulled a little box out of his pocket, got down on one knee, and asked if Mike would spend the rest of their lives together. Mike, holding back a few tears, quickly accepted. The rest of the cruise was fantastic, and the firstÂ people to know were the other folks seated at our dinner table the next evening (minus Chad’s friends who already knew he was going to pop the question).
So, we remained engaged for a little over 5 years until October of last year when we decided it was finally time to move on to the next stage of our life. We’re very excited for the future, and can’t wait to have our friends and family celebrate our nearly 11 years of love & friendship with us!
