It’s rare to know who your soul mate is when you are in high school, but that is exactly how Mike and Emily met each other, after a school-wide Valentine’s Day questionnaire algorithm calculated each other as their top match. Upperclassman Mike walked down to Emily’s homeroom to introduce himself, and while they did not immediately start dating, they never forgot one another. 10 years later they found each other again and found those long-before calculations to be true.

The pair wanted a laid-back natural day for their wedding and found the perfect venue with the stone chapel at Camp Reveal on Evansville’s far north side. With 120 guests in attendance, they said their vows in front of the quaint stone exterior and surrounding woods. For their reception, guests were shuttled across the street to their house where a backyard reception welcomed them with games such as corn hole and ping pong and activities such as fishing and a bonfire. Under a canopy of twinkle lights, they danced the night away with their match made in algorithm.
