I am so excited to share Grace and Braedon’s wedding at Flora and Field This venue always knocks it out of the park on serving their couples well! And the details? GORGEOUS!! Keep reading to get to know this couple and to learn more about their venue.
HOW THEY MET
Braedon and Grace followed each other on Instagram, seeing as they were both on athletic scholarship to Olivet Nazarene University. Braedon liked a few of Grace’s pictures on her profile to pique her interest, and of course she had to like some of his, too. He direct messaged her on New Years Eve 2017, saying he was excited to meet her and to congratulate her on signing to play basketball. They started talking every single day, eventually FaceTiming. They hit it off immediately. On February 17th, 2018, Braedon drove to Ohio to watch Grace play basketball and spend the weekend with her. The rest is history!
HOW HE PROPOSED
Braedon took Grace to Cataract Falls in Indiana for a “semi-professional photoshoot date.” They dressed up and decided to take nice, scenic pictures of each other at the park which features beautiful trails and waterfalls. About an hour of taking pictures goes by, and they make it to the big waterfall. Braedon sets up his GoPro on a tripod to take some timed pictures of the two of them together. Braedon switched the GoPro into video mode without Grace knowing after pictures. He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Because it was a hot Saturday afternoon, many people were around who applauded and congratulated the newly engaged couple. It was a moment they’ll never forget!
