Selena and Josh first met during a PowerHockey tournament in Detroit. For those unfamiliar with the sport, PowerHockey is similar to floor hockey, but all the players play in power wheelchairs. Josh was one of the players, and Selena was an assistant to one of his teammates. When Selena and Josh met, they immediately clicked and shared a lot of laughs.They eventually reconnected a while later, this time for good.

They chose Lowertown Event Center in Saint Paul, MN as their venue because it’s across the street from Mears Park, the same place where they had their first date and where Josh proposed. In Selena’s wedding vows, she even joked that they should have their kids in Mears Park.

They incorporated many personal touches such as some traditional Ojibwe segments in ode to Selena’s Native American heritage. They chose a vintage theme in honor of Mad Men, one of their favorite TV shows. Selena wanted to include her favorite movie, Nightmare Before Christmas, into some of their details. Since the main characters Jack and Sally share the same initials as Josh and Selena, the couple chose to have the cake topper, cufflinks, and champagne flutes represent these two characters and their sweet romance.

Don't miss Josh's killer green tux, the "kissing menu," their taco bar (they both dig tacos!) and cake made with their favorite IPA!
