Congratulations, Greg and Lisa! After four and a half years of dating, they said “I do” at a rustic, farm wedding in Chaska, MN. A family friend of both Greg’s and Lisa’s owns a farm and they knew it was the perfect spot for their wedding. The couple wanted a relax, laid back atmosphere with chickens, cats, and other farm animals around the farm. They did a few DIY wedding projects including floral, signs, and centerpieces.
These two met while Lisa was attending school in Mankato and Greg had just graduated from Gustavus. Greg was visiting a few friends and they went out to a bar in Mankato. He saw Lisa from across the bar and came over to talk to her. After chatting for a while, Lisa accidentally spilled a beer all over his lap. She thought he’d never talk to her again but by the end of the night, they exchanged numbers. Skip ahead to the couple going to Miami for a Crossfit competition. On the way to the airport to return to Minnesota, they stopped at a beach. While Lisa was staring out into the ocean, Greg got down on one knee! As Lisa recalls, “I was so surprised and cried for about ten minutes! I thought it was going to be at least another year before he asked me, even though I have been ready to say yes after only a year of knowing each other. It was the best moment of my life!”
