THE BRIDE


Gracie Clark

The pinnacle of a bombshell blonde, Gracie is a lively spirit hailing from Front Royal, Virginia. The eldest of her five siblings, Gracie enjoys long walks on the beach, despite how cliché that sounds. She loves being a mom to her toddler, Olivia, as well as telling you why your opinions on philosophy, politics, and really just about anything are incorrect. She especially loves doing all these activities with her soon-to-be husband.

THE GROOM


Josh Forbes

Handsome. Quick-witted. Talented. These are things that Josh tells himself that he is in order to hide the fact that he is a massive nerd who loves fantasy, Theology, and really anything that screams “geek.” Born and raised in Mesa, Arizona, Josh spends his free time playing board games with his friends, drinking whiskey, smoking cigars, and spending time with his beautiful soon-to-be wife.

Our Story


Josh and Gracie met at Christendom College while they were both freshmen, but they really never became friends until they were sophomores, working together on the Student Activities Council. They felt a connection and it turned into a relationship, but it ended up not working out. Fast forward a year and half and Josh and Gracie began to reconnect over a shared love of coffee, movies, and philosophy (although Josh insists it’s Theology). In June of 2022, they began dating again and they enjoyed the struggles and victories of Senior year together. They both graduated on May 13th, 2023, but before the commencement exercises began, Josh took Gracie to the Chapel of Our Lady and proposed before the Blessed Sacrament; and she said yes!

CHRIST THE KING CHAPEL


The Ceremony

Beginning operation in April of 2023, the Chapel of Christ the King stands tall as a monument to truth, beauty, and goodness on the campus of Christendom College. Josh and Gracie were blessed to watch its construction over the past four years, and it also is the place where he proposed to her!

HISTORIC ROSEMONT SPRINGS


The Reception

Located about a half an hour north of the Christ the King chapel, the Historic Rosemont Springs is an Amish style barn located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Featuring a stone courtyard, a majestic waterfall, and a large fireplace, it is the perfect spot to celebrate Josh and Gracie’s marriage.
