Amber & Josh

June 25, 2010 at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay

Josh Liesch’s proposal could have ended in disaster if he hadn’t been willing to point out the obvious. After setting up an elaborate scheme that involved Amber’s ring served to her in a glass of white wine, Josh and dozens of onlookers in the restaurant at Stone Harbor Resort in Door County watched in anticipation—and wonder—as Amber took sip after sip without noticing the ring clanging against the glass. Finally, Josh dropped to one knee, and a shocked Amber began to cry. Less than a year later, the couple married at the same Sturgeon Bay resort on a picturesque day that included a beautiful end-of-ceremony dove release, and spectacular photography in a nearby cherry orchard and on a friend’s yacht.
