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 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!
This couple decided to get married on whatever date we had available. Now that IS flexibility! The wedding was put together in about 2 weeks and Aunt Sue’s lake house seemed like the perfect place to tie the knot. The family dogs were running around excited to be part of all the preparation. The day was alittle chilly, but during the ceremony, the sun came out and warmed the guests and wedding party for us all to enjoy the event!
We met this couple at a bridal show and they told us they were planning on getting married in Ruby, MI over the 4th of July weekend. A few weeks later, they contacted us to discuss their wedding plans and book their date. When we arrived, we walked down a path that opened up into a clearing with a pond in the middle surrounded by campers. It was an annual family gathering that this couple chose to share their wedding day with. With grills cooking and children playing, this wedding took place upon a hill in front of the family and guests. We love all the surprises we get to experience along the way and this was, definitely a very pleasant one! The best to the two of you!
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!
This was quite a day! Not only was the weather about as good as it gets, the setting for this wonderful bride and groom was the backyard of his parents. The ambience of this wedding by the lake was all this couple could have hoped for . . . except for the anticipation of the possibility of a freighter gracing our presence. It looked like we were going to be disappointed on that front, when all of a sudden, this majestic freighter appears out of nowhere it seemed JUST as this happy twosome had been pronounced husband and wife. After the congratulatory presentation, as if on cue, this fine ship gave the Great Lakes Salute with it’s horn. The guest cheered and the couple could not get over the perfect timing of this most unique and special gift. We hope their life is filled with pleasant surprises from this day forth ~
