Miranda and Jeff’s love story began their senior year of high school when her bad date lead her to meet the love of her life. She was the basketball statistician and he was lucky #14 who just so happened to be better at shooting free throws than the guy she was dating at the time. Her lighthearted joke about leaving him for #14 was the beginning of their love story.
The couple met in 2008 but their love has flourished since then. On Christmas Eve of 2015, Jeff and Miranda made a surprise trip to see her family. Christmas day they were snowshoeing in the forest of her mother’s backyard. They were cold, wet, and Miranda was complaining to go back inside. Jeff was walking behind her when he called her name out. She turned around to see him buried in the snow, but down on one knee. His hands held the perfect ring as he said “will you be my wife?” Her excitement was uncontainable, she felt the snow stop falling and the world slow down. Her parents had been asked individually by Jeff if he had their blessing and when they returned inside they had champagne awaiting the newly engaged couple. Miranda was thrilled the proposal was in such a meaningful location and so near to her family.
Miranda and Jeff always knew they made for each other, even when they had to overcome their 55 mile separation their first year of being together. She knew he was well worth the drive because he is unlike any other man. She loves his brilliance, kindness, and great sense of humor. Jeff knew Miranda was the one from the beginning, she stood by him through the best and worst of times. He doesn’t know anyone more passionate, caring, or fun to be around. He falls more in love with Miranda everyday and says he can’t wait for that to continue into their married life. They are looking forward to married life, and watching the Green Bay Packers win together!
