Josh and Ellynn locked eyes for the first time six years ago at Ellynn’s brothers’ college graduation, just 36 hours before Ellynn was set to depart for a move to Denver, Colorado. They had known of each other throughout the years but never had the pleasure of meeting until that warm night in Davenport, Iowa. It was not an immediate love, but over a few drinks and some great conversation, their curiosity in one another started. The morning of Ellynn’s parting arrived and she was off to Denver without a care in the world.
Josh and Ellynn kept in close contact for four lengthy months but it wasn’t until Ellynn flew to Chicago to visit a friend that they had the opportunity to see each other again. This time when Ellynn locked eyes with Josh she knew she was smitten.
Josh and Ellynn’s love grew from there and they have climbed and conquered every mountain in their way to be together, including moves from Denver, Grand Rapids, Chicago, and back to Michigan.
Josh proposed to Ellynn on a snowy day in January at City Forest, a park in Midland where they frequent with their dogs. They were married at Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club in early September and celebrated with friends and family the following day in Manistee.
Josh and Ellynn reside in Midland with their two wild hunting dogs and are head over heels happy to start the next chapter in their lives together. It was an honor to be present for their beautiful and fun-filled celebration at Manistee National. Cheers to the newly weds!
