Wedding: September 29, 2018

Ceremony & Reception: Sugarland, Arena

Honeymoon: Spain

Caroline Grassl and Miles Groeschel met as lab partners at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in a food science class their junior year, and the chemistry was there to stay. Their big day took place at Sugarland Barn, which fit in perfectly with the bride’s romantic vision for her wedding. The couple brought touches from previous generations: Caroline wore her grandmother’s 1940s wedding dress and Miles’ wedding band had belonged to his great grandfather. Everything about their day was perfect, from the gorgeous florals to the spiked apple cider to their unity plant ceremony, in which bride and groom each poured water into a plant (which, in their excitement, they may have overwatered a bit!). It may have been due to alphabetical order that they were paired as lab partners, but it seems to be fate that they ended up paired as life partners joyfully celebrating with “I do.”
