Our Story
How We Met

Our story began in May 2013 at the Detroit Historical Museum (well, sort of). A close friend of Brittany's spotted a Ryan Gosling look-a-like with his mom and grandparents while setting up for an event that would take place at the museum later that evening. Brittany did not take her friend's invitation to come to the museum to boldly introduce herself to this stranger (aka Jon) but, as fate would have it, he walked into the very same bar as Brittany and her friends a few hours later. We were literally pulled together, exchanged phone numbers, posed for a quick photo, and the rest is history.

Four+ years later, Jon and Brittany are living in Detroit and couldn't be happier to be engaged and getting married in June!

The Proposal

After of a long weekend in April 2017 that included birthday festivities for Jon and a baby shower on Sunday morning, Brittany arrived home Sunday afternoon exhausted. After a run with Jon and a shower, Brittany was ready to put on pajamas and call it a weekend… But it was a beautiful evening and Jon insisted on going for a bike ride. After a few failed attempts to get Jon to go on the bike ride by himself, Brittany conceded. They went on a long bike ride through Corktown and Downtown, across Eastern Market to the Dequindre Cut, and down to the Riverfront. The sun was starting to set and Jon suggested walking up the hill to capture a few photos. It was there, atop the hill overlooking the city, where the bike ride and a place they'd run and biked past so many times before became so much more special for the two of them. Jon proposed and Brittany was ecstatic she decided to go on the bike ride after all!
