Once again what a glorious day for a beach wedding! Tawas Bay Beach Resort was the backdrop for the beautiful wedding between this lovely bride and her Army husband. As they exchanged their vows, the ENTIRE beach went silent and the onlookers appeared in awe–young girls were recording with their I-phones dreaming of the day they will say “I Do”. When the newlyweds kissed for the first time, all spectators cheered up and down the beach along with family and friends! What a great day it was for all! Our blessings to this soldier and his sweet bride and their entire wonderful family!
We just love the twists and surprises that go along with weddings! We were preparing for two afternoon weddings already booked when we received a phone call from a potential bride. She explained that her husband to be worked long hours, so they were going to try to get married in a few weeks during the week. As we discussed her plans, Reverend Tab mentioned the area that the two afternoon weddings were going to be held that day. The bride stopped for a minute, then asked, “can you perform our wedding afterwards this evening?” They had already acquired their license and were thrilled with the immediate option! Needless to say, a lovely backyard wedding was put together within hours and the happy couple were able to exchange their vows that very day! What an amazing opportunity and great spontaneity this couple showed. Blessings to both of you as you begin your journey together!
Apple Mountain Chapel
Almont New Church AssemblyThe 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!
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 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.
The guests were waiting and waiting and waiting . . . was there going to be a wedding??? Somewhere along the route, the limo bus got stuck in 5:00 rush traffic and couldn’t make it to the ceremony location on time. If it had been a gorgeous day . . . no one would’ve minded. This was not one of those days for this outside wedding.
As the late Fall sky darkened, the wedding party finally arrived! Once this ceremony was done, it was like a fire drill as the guest ran to get inside and warmed up. Here is a picture of the happy couple, once they had a chance to thaw out . . .
Congratulations and as they say, “better late than never”.

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!!!!!!!
