After we got engaged, I was obviously pretty eager to set a date. Michael mentioned that September or October would be his ideal time to get married and I've always envisioned a fall wedding, myself, so that worked out perfectly.

With a time frame in mind, our next obstacle was agreeing on where to have the wedding. I have always wanted to get married in my hometown and then have the reception on my Mom and Dad's farm. Michael, on the other hand, wasn't too keen on this idea and wanted to have it in his hometown where we currently live. After some long conversations, Michael finally agreed to have our special day in my hometown which I am ecstatic about! My mom is pretty excited too since she's always wanted to throw a big party at their place.

After calling the local church, we made it official that we would get married on October 7, 2017, which is exactly one year from today! I couldn't be any more excited to marry and build a life with one of the best people I know. It really is a dream come true!

The picture on the left is from the first time Michael and I met back in 2008. Little did I know that I was meeting my future husband! I had gone to my college friend's hometown (hey Jess!) and we went to hang out with some of her high school buddies. Michael and I hit it off and had a flirtatious relationship from the start, but it never really went anywhere. I was having too much fun in college to have a boyfriend! We reconnected a few years later in 2013 when another one of my college friends convinced me to go on a double date with her and her boyfriend (who happened to be Michael's best friend). Michael and I had a great time and have been inseparable ever since! I can't wait to be Mrs. Haines in exactly one year!
