Josh + Hailey’s respective love for baseball and the Detroit Tigers drew them to each other. As they began dating, they spent a lot of time watching + attending games, discussing trades, checking stats, etc… all the while, falling more in love and becoming the best of friends. They both admit they fell fast – within a few months it was clear that they had found their mate. Then after about a year together, just after the Fourth of July, Josh proposed while they were in Detroit attending a home game. Hailey was surprised + elated as Josh got down on his knee outside the stadium. She said, “Yes!” and they attended their first game as an engaged couple (and cheered Verlander + the Tigers on to a 14-5 win against the Dodgers. It was a great day for them, ‘eh?).
When Josh + Hailey started planning their wedding – they joked that they should have their wedding at Comerica Park because they had spent so much time + energy together on the Tigers. It was quickly dismissed as they began researching other venues, locations… but then, they decided to actually look into it. When they realized that it could be a legitimate option, they were ecstatic! They picked a date and began planning their Tigers-themed nuptials!
Josh + Hailey are the kind of people you want to be friends with. Multiple times throughout their wedding day, I heard people say, “Josh + Hailey are two of the nicest people I know.” After getting to know them – I totally agree. These two are kind, funny, and sincere. They are loyal + trustworthy, and care deeply about their family + friends. Jonathan + I have had a blast getting to know these two and celebrating this season of their lives. We were thrilled to share in this day with them and are pumped to share it with you today! Congratulations, Josh + Hailey!!
Josh + Hailey wed at the historic Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on Woodward Avenue.
Cocktail hour took place on the New Amsterdam 416 Bar and dinner + dancing took place inside at the Tiger Club in Comerica Park! Both allowed for beautiful views of the stadium + field throughout the evening!
Instead of consecutive table numbers, every guest was assigned a table that corresponded with one of Josh + Hailey’s favorite players + their numbers!
