Alexis and Josh’s Oakwood Resort wedding was everything you could ever dream about. They said ‘I do’ on Oakwood’s property overlooking Lake Wawasee. On a beautiful day, while boats passed by, and with the peaceful sound of water, they said their vows and promised a life together filled with lots of laughter and love.
They first met while attending college together. Lake Erie is a very small school, where most of the athletes sort of band together with other teams. It wasn’t until the Spring semester of their senior year that they started spending time together, conveniently……Josh likes to boast that he ‘set the hook’ (Alexis jokes that she would never use this term but he’s very proud of it).
What was meant to be a group gathering, ended up being their first date. A group of their friends was supposed to meet to see the Lego movie together on a $5 Movie Monday– but plans began to fall through for the others and it ended up just being the two of them (it’s still unknown whether Josh had planned it that way or if it really was a coincidence)!
Flash forward 5 years, Josh was ready to propose to his best friend. One day, he planned a day date with Alexis to go on a walk with their dog, Murphy, at a park near a lake. As they approached the lake, Alexis started to notice their pictures tied to trees along the path. Shortly after she saw rose petals that led to Josh and Murphy standing on the highest point, overlooking the water. It was then that Josh got down on one knee, with Murphy’s poop bag in his pocket, and asked her to marry him.
I have loved getting to know these two over the past year, or so! They are funny, genuine, and they love deeply. They have friends and family who absolutely adore them, and know how to have a good time! Even their dog, Murphy, was in the bridal party! I couldn’t think of a more perfect wedding day for two people who are so deserving. Cheers to the new Mr. + Mrs. Hudeck!
