Michelle & Tim’s Wedding at Rapid Creek Cidery in Iowa City, Iowa

An Unexpected Connection

Little did this prosthodontist and oral surgeon know that when they attended a dental school event they would meet their person. As time went on and their relationship progressed, they both slowly realized they had officially met the one! We love how they are so supportive of one another and how much he makes her laugh.

An Evening Of Surprises

One day, Tim convinced Michelle that they were going to meet up with another couple at one of their favorite local parks for a walk and then get drinks afterwards. When they arrived at the park, Tim checked his phone that said their friends were going to be a few minutes late. As they walked near the river while they were waiting, Tim went up on a small sand bank and asked Michelle to join him. She didn’t want to get sand in her shoes, but eventually he convinced her. Once she did, he told her that their friends were not coming but he had brought her here for another reason. That’s when she saw him pull the ring from his pocket and surprise her!

After he proposed, Michelle looked across the river and saw her brother Eric, whom she hadn’t seen in 6 months, had photographed the whole thing.  Tim had another surprise still up his sleeve when they joined a few other friends and had small cookout to celebrate their engagement and finish up a wonderful day!

Congratulations, Michelle & Tim! It was an honor to plan and design your big day. Thanks for choosing Soirée!
