HOW WE MET: We went to middle school and high school together but were introduced by some mutual friends our junior year of high school at Floyd Central in 2010, when Michael was on the football team and Jamie was on the volleyball team. Our first date was to Harvest Homecoming, and the rest just fell into place from there. We dated all through high school and college, when Michael went to Purdue University and Jamie attended the University of Indianapolis. We then both pursued our doctorate degrees: Michael obtaining his Doctorate of Pharmacy from Sullivan University, and Jamie earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Indianapolis this past May.
Our wedding was…a weekend we will always remember, thanks to everyone who celebrated with us. From the rehearsal dinner at the Loft on Spring to the picturesque rooftop at the Frazier History Museum. We were surrounded by family and friends who had watched us grow over the last nine years into the couple we are today. Although we worried about rain, the clouds parted after a few sprinkles earlier in the afternoon for an absolutely perfect outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the Ohio River.
Marriage is…a new adventure with your best friend every day. We both spent many years in different cities dating long distance, so getting to finally live in the same city/house makes all the years leading up to this point worth it. It’s falling more in love with the little things each and every day, learning to enjoy the phase of life you are in right now, and overcoming each new challenge together.
