Paige & Mike
Not all high school sweethearts end up married but these two beat all the odds! Paige and Mike met at Old Mill High School at the end of junior year. On their first date they went to Lucky Garden Buffet which was their favorite restaurant. They use to walk the B&A trail (where they got their engagement pictures taken) all the way to the restaurant!
Paige and Mike dated all throughout college and Mike proposed on a trip that they took to Virginia for Paige’s graduation. He had planned a hike that ended up taking them over 2 hours! While they were taking in the amazing view of Virginia, Mike took a knee on a big rock right at the top and proposed!
Backyard DIY wedding
Paige and Mike were married on a family friend’s property in Harwood, MD which is right outside of Annapolis. It had been so cold, but ended up being the absolute perfect day for an outdoor wedding! Paige paid attention to all the details and was able to do the majority of the decorating herself! I loved seeing how all of the family and friends came together to make the day just perfect!
When they were in high school Mike decorated this box for Paige and they used it to carry their rings! When the bride is doing last minute details and getting ready all at the same time…Paige you’re a super star!!A bride that does it all….doing her bridesmaid’s hair while her hair is getting done.
Paige wrapped her bouquet with lace from Mike’s grandmother’s dress. I love all the personal touches! Now its time to get married!!!Mike teaching the ring bearer what to do right before the ceremony!
