Haley & Craig in Bloomfield Hills, MI

Haley and Craig were set up by his coworker and Haley's sister. Their first date consisted of sushi, wine, and singing at a piano bar in San Francisco. The fun-loving couple has been inseparable ever since. The Bride Haley, 30, marketing manager The Groom Craig, 34, senior manager The Date August 11 On a typical Saturday in June, they took a morning walk by the Golden Gate Bridge, where Craig surprised Haley with a proposal. She immediately said yes, and they quickly headed home to pack for the next surprise -- a trip to Sonoma. For their wedding, the two headed to Michigan to say their vows in an old stone chapel that Haley had gone to while growing up. With Craig originally hailing from upstate New York, having the wedding in Michigan made it a little more convenient for both families to attend.
