Our Story <3

Neil and Jill met April 2015 at a pharmaceutical dinner at Steak 44 restaurant in Phoenix (thanks Otezla!). Neil was already working as a dermatologist at Skin & Cancer Center of Arizona while Jill was finishing up Physician Assistant school in Mesa. Jill and Neil started dating in July of 2015.
Flash forward to February 2017, two days after Jill's birthday, Neil proposed while we were on vacation at Atlantis resort in Paradise Island, the Bahamas.
We love to spend our time traveling --so far we have been to Iceland, Sweden, Norway, the Bahamas, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands & the UP (upper peninsula of Michigan, ha)! We are foodies who love to try new restaurants and we also enjoy staying in and watching movies with Jill's dog Charlotte and cat Delilah.
We are planning our wedding for July 21, 2018 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We chose Grand Rapids since it is way cooler in summer than Scottsdale (no-one wants to get married in 110+ degrees!) and since Jill used to live in Grand Rapids. We also thought this city would be a good meeting point for our friends and family from the Midwest and East coast! Grand Rapids is nearby Lake Michigan and is gorgeous in the summer! From amazing restaurants to microbreweries and art museums, GR has a lot to offer our incoming guests for our wedding. :)
