For their wedding day, Beth and Andy had an outdoor garden wedding ceremony at Millennium Garden followed by an indoor reception at Plymouth Creek Center. These two have quite the history- they have known each other since junior high school! Beth had a crush Andy, but he was dating someone else so they were distant friends throughout high school. Ten years later, they reconnected on Facebook while Beth was living in Minnesota with her son and Andy was in Iowa. They started chatting on Facebook a lot which led to many phone call conversations. In December of 2008, they finally met up in person and by February of 2009, they were officially dating. By 2011, Andy moved in with Beth and her son. From there, this couple just continued to do life! They bought a house, adopted a fur baby, and welcomed two daughters. After ten and a half years together, they were more than ready to make it official and tie the knot! Their save the dates and cake topper even included “Finally”! Beth and Andy wanted a more laid back, casual feel for their day but still have some traditional aspects to please their daughters’ fairy tale wedding expectations. The beautiful gardens, Beth’s flowing dress, dancing the night away, and all of the happy laughter certainly sound like the perfect fairy tale day!
For Beth’s birthday, Andy got her a right hand ring she had shown him a month prior. Beth posted on Facebook, “This girl got a ring for her birthday” without attaching a photo of the ring. She turned her phone off for the evening and the couple went to dinner at Murray’s. After, they took a pedal cab to the Stone Arch Bridge. In the cab, Beth asked for Andy’s jacket to cover her legs. Andy hesitated (little did Beth know there was a ring box in the pocket). He finally gave in and handed over his jacket. As they walked over the bridge, Andy commented that he had checked Facebook and about 50 people had congratulated them on Beth’s post, thinking the two had gotten engaged. “My post won’t be so funny when I put up a picture of the ring you got me,” Beth had replied. In the middle of the Stone Arch Bridge at sunset, Andy got down on one knee and said, “Well, I don’t want to make a liar out of you!” Facebook for the win once again with this couple’s love story!
