WEDDING: Clay and Nelu

Suttons Bay, Michigan

Technically, I shouldn’t be blogging this wedding yet. Clay and Nelu were originally supposed to get married in August in Lansing in a historic inn. Instead, we were celebrating their ceremony at a vineyard which overlooks Suttons Bay in May. Trust me, I’m not complaining. I have a feeling this was exactly the way things were meant to happen. And, with major changes like that, most couples would be stressed beyond measure but for Clay and Nelu, I do believe, the important part was the getting-married part. Even with some super, crazy wind, this was the perfect day to do just that.

May you always face change in your marriage with the same grace. Congratulations!

GLANCE: Justin and Rachel

Charlevoix, Michigan

This past weekend I had the joy of heading to one of my very favorite northern Michigan towns for a wedding.  It was the first time I met the bride and groom so I learned a lot about them as the day progressed. For instance, I found out that Justin has liked Rachel since kindergarten. I know. How sweet is that? The most wonderful thing of all, to me, was not the gorgeous location of the ceremony, nor the big beautiful barn where they celebrated but that everyone talked about how different Rachel and Justin are from each other. These two took those differences to create one amazing love story.
