We always love our weddings at Stony Creek, but, we have our memories from each that make it extra special! This happened to be one of the few super hot summer days in Michigan. When we arrived, the fans were blasting in the tent and we saw the bride sitting on a stool in her shorts and t-shirt trying to stay cool before the big moment arrived. The walk to the gazebo is a rather long one . . . but the couple had arranged for a golf cart to provide transportation to the guests who preferred not to walk. However, the cart arrived five minutes before the ceremony was about to begin so we were amused by the driver racing down and back scurrying to get the guest in place. The bride and her dad made the walk down the wood chip path to her waiting groom. All were alittle steamy, but it was worth every degree! May they find happiness and love and “warmth” throughout their marriage!
Apple Mountain Chapel
Almont New Church AssemblyThe last two weekend weddings involved beautiful historic chapels! There is something quaint about Springtime and chapels and, of course, getting to ring the bell in celebration after the newlyweds have been presented as husband and wife! We have performed weddings on several repeat occassions at various old chapels in Michigan and each one is unique!
The first wedding was at 12:00 on 12/12/12 on the boardwalk in Port Huron near the bridges. Our chilly couple shed a few icicle tears, but didn’t let the temperature effect their happiness. Congratulations and may God’s Blessings be on you both! We also received an awesome email from the delighted couple a few days later:
Brian and myself would like to give you our heartfilled thanks for providing us with such a unique ceremony that fit our personalites to a “T”. The day weather wise was perfect, the sun was out, the sounds of the water so perfect. It was more than we could have hoped for. That day, at the same exact time we cried tears of happiness together. We are excited to see pictures so we may look at them daily as a reminder of how beautiful our day was.
You are truly a God send. Groom and Bride 12/12/12″
The second lovely couple decided that the best location for their small wedding was the assisted living home where she worked. How touching and selfless to share their most intimate day with those who would otherwise be unable to attend. The contrast was a warm indoor with the fireplace and Christmas tree, but both weddings were amazingly beautiful! Congratuations and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your 12/12/12 wedding!
The guests were waiting and waiting and waiting . . . was there going to be a wedding??? Somewhere along the route, the limo bus got stuck in 5:00 rush traffic and couldn’t make it to the ceremony location on time. If it had been a gorgeous day . . . no one would’ve minded. This was not one of those days for this outside wedding.
As the late Fall sky darkened, the wedding party finally arrived! Once this ceremony was done, it was like a fire drill as the guest ran to get inside and warmed up. Here is a picture of the happy couple, once they had a chance to thaw out . . .
Congratulations and as they say, “better late than never”.
T’was a rather cool day for September, but nothing could stop this couple from having their dream wedding outside. The wind was blowing and the breeze was less than tropical, however, the bride was beaming as she and her new hubby were pronounced newly married. There was a run by the guests as soon as the couple made their way back down the aisle for warmth and shelter. Despite it all, they got their dream wedding rain or shine!
Every once in a while, it just all comes together to be able to help several couples have their dream weddings all on the same weekend . . . so, here are FOUR that just were perfectly orchestrated time wise to all work out. There was a few tense moments when we encountered a detour, but God worked it out. Each one was as beautiful as the one before and we were so blessed that these couples chose us to share their wedding day with us! Congratulations!!!!!!!
