Five Years Down-Eternity to Go!

Emily and John 8We met this couple on their fifth wedding anniversary. They had rented a house on the beach to renew their vows. Just the two of them and the two of us and the waves lapping the rocks on a beautiful Memorial weekend day.

They cherished the time to reconnect and recommit leaving the world behind for just a few days. A lesson for all to step back and enjoy what God has joined together and keep your love fresh. As you can see, their renewal was a special moment for this special couple. Keep up the good work and continue to nurture your marriage and it will never let you down.

Surprise! We are getting married today!

Memorial Day Weekend weddings 2013 024We 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!

The Verdict Is In!

This couple’s journey began with a school field trip to the Lapeer County Courthouse. They chose this as the location of their wedding several years later. It is a beautiful historic building with the jury box and judge’s chamber behind the judges seat with twin winding stair cases. We can see why this lovely couple wanted to tie the knot here. “All witnesses rise” was for the bride this time instead of the judge! Our best to you both!

M and I wedding

As we love what we do and always have unique opportunities, this couple approached us requesting a wedding ceremony.  The bride spoke little English, but wanted me to perform their wedding nonetheless.  Through an interpreter, we were able to communicate each and every word of the ceremony for her to be able to understand and repeat her vows.  It was an awesome occasion and we are so grateful to be asked to be involved in joining together another man and woman in holy matrimony despite the language barrier!

Stony Creek Style

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJen and Joe at Stoney CreekWe always love our weddings at Stony Creek, but, we have our memories from each that make it extra special!  This happened to be one of the few super hot summer days in Michigan.  When we arrived, the fans were blasting in the tent and we saw the bride sitting on a stool in her shorts and t-shirt trying to stay cool before the big moment arrived.  The walk to the gazebo is a rather long one . . . but the couple had arranged for a golf cart to provide transportation to the guests who preferred not to walk.  However, the cart arrived five minutes before the ceremony was about to begin so we were amused by the driver racing down and back scurrying to get the guest in place.  The bride and her dad made the walk down the wood chip path to her waiting groom.  All were alittle steamy, but it was worth every degree!  May they find happiness and love and “warmth” throughout their marriage!

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!
