Glen Arbor, MI Engagement | Emily + Derek

Some meet their spouses in college, some at work, some in high school, but for Emily & Derek, they met in an 8th grade Spanish class. This particular class brought them together when Derek introduced himself to Emily and started a beautiful, meaningful friendship which they will always cherish. However, through the years, their friendship grew into much more.

Although they have shared many experiences together, one stands out to Derek as a significant point in their relationship. He knew he would marry Emily when he became baptized at her church. Their “relationship changed from being like all of [their] friends’ relationships to a faith based one; it became stronger in a different way.” They had a connection that could not be easily broken. As a result, Derek got to preparing the perfect proposal. Planning to meet for a potential business deal, Derek had his mom and aunt spend time with Emily, wine tasting and laughing the day away. They dropped her off at a beautiful, romantic Inn in Temecula, California on May 1st, 2015. As she entered the building, her eyes laid on Derek. He was dressed to the nines, standing under a pergola overlooking a lake and mountains. It was simply breathtaking and Emily could not help but cry. Finally alone, Derek asked her to become his wife, and she excitedly agreed. The two could not be happier to spend the rest of their lives together and be able to continue their time together, like making elaborate foods for their movie dates. Congratulations Emily & Derek!
