Just got this wonderful picture from a Fall 2016 Bride. I knew the groom had planned a special kiss, but we were all delighted with this most excellently executed dip! One for the memory books at Fern Hill.
This couple decided that the Goodells Chapel was the place for them to tie the knot and have their reception on the grounds of the park. It was a glorious summer day and all was just about perfect . . . except it was a day that an auction was going on in one of the barns by the chapel. Other than the occasional competing against the auctioneer, the vehicles were quite a site filling the area surrounding the chapel. All in all, a most unforgettable, great day! The ringing of the bell is always a hi-lite!
The bride was crying prior to the ceremony that she so much had wanted for her brother, who was in the military, to give her away, but he just didn’t make it in time. Two minutes before the wedding began, in ran her brother! Such joy was on the bride’s face and here is a picture of him giving her away. Needless to say, you have probably gathered that the groom’s last name is Adams . . . what a fitting recessional song for grins and giggles–they had the DJ play the them to “THE ADDAMS FAMILY” and everyone snapped their fingers in unison! A great day had by all!
I am always so happy when I encounter a couple who have gone through the anguish of divorce, and are getting remarried. We say our vows, and we mean them. Sometimes however things happen in life that we think we simply cannot stay together. It is a blessing that these two lovely people are coming back together again with more wisdom, experience, love, and the strength of a marriage that only comes from going through life’s fires and coming out the other side.
The day was gorgeous and we had three weddings to perform! This was the final one of the day in Frankenmuth–just an intimate ceremony by the mill. It could not have been a more beautiful ending to a perfect day! The balloons began ascending right after I pronounced this couple husband and wife. I am sure we will all remember that awesome site!
