August 1, 2013 brought a very special couple together in marriage. Every wedding day is special, as was this one, but the day was special for more than only the couple being married. It was a special day because it was the first day that this couple could legally be married in the State of Minnesota.

Amy Petrich and Holli Bartelt met a little over two years ago through the website OKCupid.com and became friends immediately. Over time their friendship grew into a relationship which continued to grow stronger. Amy said she knew right away that Holli was the one for her. Amy told her parents from the beginning of the relationship that she was “going to marry Holli” some day.

With Holli living near Des Moines, Iowa and Amy in Wykoff, Minn. the couple were unable to spend a lot of time together but then the situation would change. Holli’s mom, Deb, was on a transplant list and she knew she would need to be in the area to be near her mom and help with things when the time came for her mom’s organ transplant so Holli moved to Decorah, Iowa, which brought Amy and Holli even closer. Holli moved to Wykoff shortly thereafter.

The time came where Holli wanted to propose to Amy but wasn’t sure how to do it. She had already spoken with Amy’s parents and in an old fashioned tradition had asked for their daughters hand in marriage. The couple had a trip to the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. planned for Holli’s birthday on April 24, 2013, so Holli decided she would propose to Amy there. She contacted the Mall of America and explained her plans, and the contact person at the Mall of America helped her make her plans. The two would go have a caricature done together and Holli would propose while sitting for the caricature.

It so happened Amy and Holli were a little early and the caricaturist was not there yet. By this time Holli was nervous and hoping to not have her plan found out so she quickly decided the couple could take a photo together in the photo booth and have a picture of the moment she proposed.

So once the two got into the booth and right before the first set of four photos began, Holli proposed. The photo strip tells the story of the surprise proposal and the happiness of the couple after Amy said yes. The photo strip is a once-in-a-lifetime memory for the couple.

Following the proposal the two had a celebratory dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse called Fo .....
