Aug 15, 2020 | Joshua and Natalie (Herning) McPheron know firsthand that a strong friendship and religious faith are two strong foundations on which to build a relationship: the couple met during a freshman scholarship program at Bowling Green State University, but deepened their friendship on a missionary trip and afterwards. internship at their campus church. At the end of their sophomore year, the best friends of the time decided to take their relationship to the next level.
On their wedding day, Natalie says one of her favorite memories will always be seeing Josh down the aisle – and his emotional reaction to seeing her. (Looking at the photos, who can blame her? We got hit ourselves.) As the couple skipped a first glance, they made a “first contact,” where the couple held hands while being separated by a corner of a building. “It was so heartwarming and sweet to hold his hand and pray with him before our wedding,” Natalie says.
At the reception, the newlyweds spread the love: they also gave one of their bridesmaids and her husband their first dance, after their May wedding and reception had to be called off in due to COVID.
“It really was the most perfect day,” says Natalie. “Our salespeople were amazing and the staff at Farm at Harvest Hills were the nicest and most accommodating people. … [They] worked so hard to keep everything safe.
