When this out of town couple arrived for the rehearsal, they were quite frazzled with the week’s events, only to discover that the event planner was not going to make it. We conducted the rehearsal and assured them that everything would be perfect on their wedding day. As the time neared for their ceremony to begin, Melanie went to check with the event planner on beginning the ceremony. The young girl said this was going to be her first wedding and she did not know what to do . . . thank God, Melanie had been at the rehearsal and stepped right up to make sure this couple got the best wedding despite the disorganization of the staff. The entire wedding party, bride and groom and parents were so grateful we had their backs and made for a flawless entrance and ceremony. it!
This delightful couple planned all Spring and Summer to have their wedding ceremony at the property they had just purchased. With it being a Fall wedding, they wanted to incorporate all the best of the season. A beautiful autumn day smiled upon them for friends and family to gather for the fun. How cute is their “Honeymoon Suite”? Everyone had a wonderful time and we hope this couple will cherish the day that they exchanged their wedding vows.
This vintage duo were so excited to tie the knot! I thought the groom was going to burn himself right out with enthusiasm before these two said “I Do” At the last minute, the couple were going to have their combined grandchildren walk up the aisle before them. Since they did not have any prior coaching, the oldest, who was the leader of the pack started walking in to the left of the guests and all the little ones followed suit! We finally got them on the right path to the front with a lot of smiles and giggles from the guest. Following the wedding, a lady came up to us to say her daughter was in the Freighters restaurant and that I had performed her wedding at the exact same place a few years past!
What a small world.
All in all, it was a beautiful day overlooking the St. Clair River and the twin bridges between the US and Canada . . .
What fun it was for this couple to be ushered from their Almont wedding to the Romeo reception! Pure country at it’s finest. It was yet another beautiful summer day when this couple tied the knot. The organist accidentally started playing, “Here comes the Bride”, as the parents of the couple were being ushered down the aisle and everyone stood up! Melanie gently went in and motioned for everyone to sit down as the father of the bride yelled out–“you don’t stand for us–we’re already married!”. The guests laughed, sat down, and got it right when the bride made her grand entrance. Never know what might happen from one wedding to the next, but that is what makes each and every one so special and unique!
The 4th of July is the bride’s favorite holiday. What better day than to also get married on your favorite day? The couple was planning on surprising everyone at the backyard BBQ with their wedding, but decided to spill the beans (not the baked beans : ) so that all would show up in time to celebrate this joyous occasion with them. The weather was perfect and the couple had known each other when they were younger. As happens, life sent them in different directions, but alas, they found each other again and knew that the fireworks were still there!
