A Gift Shop Romance: Mark & Emily

This is such a great story, it needs to be told (and retold).... Mark and Emily crossed many paths at University of Michigan, one of which was at the on campus church where they had mutual friends. They knew each other by site, but never spent any time together. Mark was an engineering major while Emily was also in North Campus studying music. One week before Mark graduated and was moving to Chicago their paths crossed again.... Emily was called in to work at Falling Waters, a gift shop on Main Street on a day she wasn't supposed to work. Mark was one week away from moving to Chicago and on a mission to buy a gift --- for another girl. That day Emily helped find a gift for another girl. Before Mark left the shop he and Emily made plans to get together for breakfast before he left town and that folks is where their story started.

Mark and Emily are to be  married this June on their old turf - St Thomas Catholic Church and the Ann Arbor City Club. Best wishes to you, can't wait to document your big day!

Love, Melanie
