AMANDA HOEHNE and JOSHUA SEDENS
JULY 1, 2016
FROM AMANDA: Josh and I met when we were 10 years old. Our parents were friends, so they made plans for all the kids to play together. I remember my mom asking me if I thought Josh was cute, but of course I just said, “Ew, mom! No!” Fast-forward a few years to 2011 when Josh finally asked me to be his girlfriend after years of emailing and chatting on MSN. I had plans to get a pedicure with Josh’s sister when I heard a knock at the door. When I opened it, my handsome boyfriend—who was supposed to be in California—was standing there with flowers and a big smile on his face. I was so surprised to see him, but I managed to pop out a “yes” to his proposal! As soon as I saw the gold sequined bridesmaids’ dresses online, I knew they were what I wanted. My girls loved their dresses and I thought they looked stunning in them. The gold theme evolved from there with gold detailing on the stationery and the dessert table. Josh loved watching me walk down the aisle toward him. He looked so handsome, I wanted to kiss him as soon as I got close enough. It was such a special moment when we finally locked lips!
