In between quizzes over motion, force, and energy Annika and Mike met in Physics class. Hop in your time machine and head back to 1999 where their love story all began. Dating through high school and college, the couple knew they had a strong connection. After parting ways for 10 years, they always kept in touch but the couple found themselves drawn back to each other.
Their proposal mimicked the couple’s simple style. The two were away on a long weekend in Colorado with Annika’s family. While laying in bed and waking up from a nap, Mike got out of bed and turned the lights on. He got down on one knee and asked Annika to spend the rest of her life with him. It was spontaneous, simple, and perfectly suited for the happy couple.
In sunny Sedona, Arizona, the place that rarely gets more than a dusting snow, a snowstorm hit 2 days before the big day. With over 20 inches of snow covering the Sedona Golf Resort, the staff got to work on making sure the couple’s outdoor wedding was still possible. Shoveling snow off the crisp green grass, creating an aisle for the bride to walk down, and somehow prompting mother nature to put the storm to a stop just in time for the outdoor ceremony. Greenery tied to the chairs created a feeling of spring despite the weather leading to two gorgeous arrangements from Sedona Mountain High Flowers acting as an altar for the happy couple.
Annika’s brother officiated their snowy Sedona wedding, which was captured by Brad Livengood Photography. Late night pizza and a tunnel of sparklers sent Annika and Mike on their way to sunny Jamaica to escape the snow. It was a night to remember!
