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!
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
At rehearsal, this lovely bride said that all she wanted for her wedding to be perfect was SNOW! There was alittle on the ground, but not exactly what she hoped for. Wedding day came, not a snowflake in sight . . . until she walked into the chapel to dress and prepare for the ceremony. Almost on cue, big, beautiful snowflakes began falling slowly to the ground and continued throughout the ceremony creating the white blanket of fresh, sparkling snow . . . I think God was smiling at this humble request and decided he would grant that wish. We pray this couple finds happiness and blessings wherever they go in their journey through life.
I wanted to take a moment on this day to thank you and your wife for marrying my husband and I a year ago. This year truly has been amazing for us. I apologize on not getting these photos to you sooner. We actually didn’t get them until about 5 months ago ourselves. We have been blessed to welcome our first child into this world in October so we’ve been pretty busy.
I hope you and your wife are doing well and will enjoy the holiday season. Thank you again and feel free to use these pictures on your website.
