Chapels in the Spring

 

Apple Mountain Chapel

 

Almont New  Church Assembly

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!

Irish Wedding Blessing

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happinessthumbnail
From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

 

Torrential Rain and Tornado Warnings Didn’t Stop Us!

Wedding in the Woods

Last weekend, we arrive at our destination for a home wedding.  It was to be in the gazebo–we didn’t see one anywhere?? The beautiful young bride told us that it was in the woods about an eighth of a mile behind the house.  This is going to be interesting, we thought.  We took the trek out and were awestruck!  This location was incredible.  Even the bugs stayed away while this wonderful couple took their vows in this unforgettable place.  Again, we are so blessed to be used by God for such an occassion as this. 

Congratulations!

The Long and Winding Road . . .

that leads to the wedding . . .

For those of you who have had a chance to visit the relatively new George George Park, you know that it has this beautiful pavillion for wedding ceremonies.  However, it is a rather long walk for the bride when she is making her grand entrance from the parking lot. We witnessed the bride exit the limo and the porocessional began . . . and ended . . .  but, where is the bride?  There is a section where the trees and fountain hide the path–that’s where our bride was making some necessary adjustments to continue her walk down the aisle!  A few curious moments passed, but Rev. assured everyone, there was a bride on the way–and as you can see, she made her meeting with her groom!  Congratulations, you two, and much happiness!!!

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 ~ 

East Meets West

  It isn’t too often we get to do a church wedding, but this gorgeous sanctuary 
 was opened to us for the marriage of two different cultures and denominations.  Despite the differences, this couple blended perfectly together.    It was awesome to see the interaction of the many guests becoming one family with shaking of hands, hugs and smiles all around after the ceremony.
  A bright future and blessings to these newlyweds.
