Jeff and Caitie’s story began in August of 2014. They had both decided to give online dating a shot after the traditional ways of dating had not produced the right person for either of them. Jeff messaged Caitie asking one simple question, “If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?” Caitie, being the traveler that she is, was enthralled by this message and eagerly replied. After that, in the words of Caitie, “there was no stopping us.”
This past Christmas, Jeff surprised Caitie with the best present of her life. After they had opened up their Christmas presents, Jeff descended the stairs, saying that there was one present that was too big to wrap in the basement. After a little while, he called Caitie down and when she got there, he was down on one knee with a ring in hand. After the initial moment of surprise, Caitie said yes!
Their wedding took place at the Manhattan Beach Lodge in Crosslake on a beautifully windy day. They said “I do,” beside the lake, and then headed over to Whitefish Lodge & Suites for the reception. Congratulations Jeff and Caitie! Thanks for letting me be part of your special day.
