John and Annie have a story that simply cannot NOT be told.
They met during the summer on Lake Michigamme, in Northern Michigan when they were 13 and 15 years old.
John and his brother heard girl screams from across the lake that they were going skinny-dipping…
That’s how their story beings.
I told you it was a good one.
At the end of each summer they would grudgingly return to their individual lives
in lower Michigan for the next 9 months.
A summer romance, every girl’s dream. (hahaha)
Eventually John proposed on the shores of the lake
and exchanged Forever and Ever Amen, on the same soil.
(their first dance song was Forever and Ever Amen by Randy Travis…
As if my heart wasn’t a sloppy mess already! That song is so special to me as well)
This was Annie’s robe as a child.. it was about to be thrown away,
when her mom rescued it and made it the perfect cozy rain jacket hahaha
THE RAIN!!!! SO ROMANTIC
John’s brother sang the most beaaaaaautiful song!!
It took a little bit to finish the song with all the laughing and crying and cry-laughing, but it was amazing.
