John & Darlene | The Meeting House Grand Ballroom in Plymouth, Michigan

January 13, 2017

The story always starts somewhere, and I love a good start to a romance.  Even if its a few years before the real adventure begins.

These two met in high school and dated for a year or so before heading off to venture out on to the world. John joined the military and Darlene began her college education.  The romantic relationship ended, but they remained friends. Years later, they reconnected via social media and realized that God had some cool things in store for them.  It was definitely a great celebration of these two lives mingling together.

Fun little fact…they celebrated their reception in the same place they had their high school prom.  Well done, friends & congratulations again!
