In December of 2014, Jake and Molly attended the Christmas themed Sigma Chi “rooms party.” Molly was talked into the eventful night by her sorority sister, Kathryn, and did not regret it. Jacob is an alumnus of Sigma Chi that was reliving the good ol’ days for the night. The two met over a competitive game of flip cup and quickly parted ways. Molly was drawn to the dimpled faced, santa hatted, 80’s red blazered gentlemen. Throughout the night Molly’s sorority sister and Jake’s fraternity brothers devised a plan to get the two together. They decided to meet for dinner at Sidetrack’s in Ypsilanti, MI. They sat at the window seat on a snowy night and quickly became best friends.
Since 2014 the two have traveled to many places together. Some of there favorite places have been Hawaii, Niagara Falls, D.C., Seattle, and their all-time favorite Frankenmuth! Fun Fact: Jake proposed to Molly on Easter in Frankenmuth on “their” bridge.
Jake and Molly tied the knot with traditional Irish Hand Fasting at Most Holy Trinity Church in Corktown which is one of the oldest churches in Detroit. It’s only fitting that their honeymoon was traveling Ireland.
I’m so excited for you two and thankful to be a part of your big day.

There are two things I learned about Michigan weddings, first is AC/DC’s Thunderstruck is an excuse to drink, and The Village People’s YMCA is an excuse for the groomsmen to undress after said drinks.
