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

4 years = 4 ever

Once again, a perfect day at the beach for this young couple starting out their lives as ONE. It took 4 years for them to get here, having met one fateful night 4 years ago at a wedding of mutual friends. Through many moves around the country apart and together, they finally realized that God had a plan for the two of them. Their love survived trials and time zones to bring them to this very special day. No longer would they travel the paths of life alone, but the path through the woods to the beach began their forever.

Congratulations and Blessings!

Good Times at Good Tymes Barn!

Country Weddings 022Country Weddings 009Country Weddings 014What a good time had by all at the Good Tymes Barn wedding. All the wedding party wore cowboy boots to kick up their heels at the reception and I made sure I had my boots on. The sky was menacing prior to the ceremony, but as always, God is good and staved off the rain on this very hot July afternoon. This country scene was perfect for this country couple. May they continue to love, laugh and enjoy each other!

I Guess “On Location” Weddings are in our blood!

This first picture is of Melanie’s great-grandfather who was a minister, travelling to do a wedding in another town that did not have a minister.

This second picture is of Melanie’s great aunt getting married beside their new car.  I guess they had outdoor weddings long before we did! They must’ve been in a hurry to get on with their married lives!

Chapels in the Spring

The 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!

Torrential Rain and Tornado Warnings Didn’t Stop Us!

Wonderful Weekend of Weddings!

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!!!!!!!

Antique and White Lace

What a beautiful May day for a small country chapel wedding! Even though it is on the grounds of a golf course, it seems like a century back in time when you open the huge doors into the bell tower foyer.  The pews and arch windows made it even more elegant. On the platform is a fasinating wooden altar and lecturn fine crafted a long time ago.  This great couple had such a perfect archway of bubbles as they re-entered the chapel for pictures and the attending children were in awe with grown ups blowing bubbles with them!

Future preachers?  Very cute picture, huh?

Congratulations to this lovely couple and may the future be as bright as the day they said I do ~ 

Fashionably Late, but ended up Great!

The wedding was supposed to begin at 6 pm.  At 5:55, no bride-no groom.  The maid of honor and flowergirl were waiting for their dresses to arrive.  The bride’s mom was frantically making phone calls.  Panic was rising in the other attendants . . . . in walks the groom, which we tucked away to keep from seeing the bride.  Minutes later, the bride arrives.  Frenzy in the ladies room as dresses, shoes and flowers were passed out.  Unbelievably, the wedding ceremony began less than 15 minutes later!  After this beautiful bride and her new husband were pronounced — there were smiles all around.  What an amazing blessing from God that all the chaos melted away when the ceremony began.
