Impromptu Park Wedding

Through many trials and tribulations, this couple had to postpone their wedding for several months.  They had a celebration last year in the anticipation of being able to legally become husband and wife.  A few calls back and forth determined that they just wanted to get married without any fanfare, so we planned to meet in the park on a chilly March day for them to seal their vows.  We looked around and found a perfect spot by the rushing river where the family gathered around for the ceremony.  Sometimes the most simple of plans can turn out to be extraordinary as it was for this couple.  Bottom line, this could not have been a more beautiful wedding!

Snow White now has Seven Dwarfs!

Gary and Deanne Jan 18 2014 017When this fun loving couple decided to get married . . . it included seven children!  Not only were they awesome, but the seven little ones made the day even brighter. 

They all knew the hierarchy and actually coined themselves the Seven Dwarfs!  Her Prince Charming now shares life with the charm that only that size of a family can bring.  Our best to you and all those delightful dwarfs!Gary and Deanne Jan 18 2014 021Gary and Deanne Jan 18 2014 022

Fire and Ice

ImageImageThis sweet couple chose NovembeImager to begin their life together in the cozy lodge at Waldenwoods.  The three wood fireplaces were aglow to ward off the very chilly day, but the warmth of the wedding as these two exchanged their vows is what made this beautiful setting even more so.  A rustic theme complemented the atmosphere and the newlyweds were even able to run outside for a few nippy photos before retreating to the lodge for their reception.  We hope the very best for these two as they begin the holidays as husband and wife.

UPDATE: 2/2014: We received a message from this couple that they are expecting a baby this summer!

And the winner is . . . . !!!

God Blessed the Broken Road

How truly awe inspiring it is when you hear stories of young love going their separate ways and God bringing them back together after many years apart.  This is what happened to these two.  Life sent them in different directions in marriage and children, but it didn’t work out–as if they were meant to be, their paths crossed again, much older, and wiser and realizing that there still was a chance from that love that was sparked all those years ago.  The bride’s entrance song was “Bless the Broken Road”, which was so perfect for their wedding day.  Now that these soul mates have married, we know their life together will be everything they ever dreamed it would be.  Bless you ~

Best Friends become Brothers-In-Law

This is yet another great story!  A common interest on line brought these two young men to meet in person at a conference in Florida several years ago.  They found out they had a lot in common and eventually became best friends.  On a visit to Canada, he met his friend’s sister . . . sparks flew and the rest is history.  Not only do these two share a friendship, but have now become family!  Our groom not only gained a beautiful bride, but also a brother-in-law as his best friend.  Congratulations to this lovely couple!!!
