Wedding preparations at Chestnut Ridge Resort and Chestnut Spa in Blairsville, PA

 

Becca and Josh met in high school when Josh started playing baseball on a team that her Dad was coaching. At the time they were just friends and later started dating in college.

The proposal:
“Josh brought me flowers and took me out to dinner one evening.  After dinner, he had gifts for me as a “congratulations” for finishing a couple of graduate classes.  Before I opened the final gift, he read me a beautiful speech that he had prepared. Then I opened the last gift, and it was a wedding planner/binder. He took out the ring, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him!”- Becca

I told them to describe each other using three words, here’s what they had to say:

Josh’s response: Becca is loving, sweet, and kind.

Becca’s response: Josh is hard-working, determined, and thoughtful.

I think a hand written note on your wedding day is one of the most absolute best gifts anyone can give. In the day of electronic communications, the art of a hand written note just means so much!
