This weekend I had the privilege of telling the story of Christy and Scott’s Wedding day.  The bride wore a gorgeous Allure Wedding Gown and the bridesmaids were dressed in Bill Levkoff Wedding bridal dresses.

The Wedding Ceremony was located at

Second Byron CRC
7588 Byron Center Avenue SW
Byron Center, Michigan  49315

This church is the bride’s home church and is a very nice Wedding location in Byron Center, Michigan, just south of Grand Rapids, Michigan.  The Wedding went perfectly.  I had my doubts when just 5 minutes until the bride was to walk down the isle the junior bride lost a front tooth!  Yup, and it was a bit touch and go for a moment but she smiled her whole way down the isle.:-)

The Grandma of the bride made an unexpected showing for the Wedding.  She is 95 years young.  She was having a wonderful time laughing at the Wedding.  It was nice to be in the presence of such wisdom.

We had a wonderful day working together.  The sun was out but it was a bit brisk and windy but that didn’t slow us down.

We stopped at a beautiful park right near the Doubletree Hotel where the Wedding reception was being held.  When we first arrived a runner was passing by and mentioned something about the beer that a groomsman was holding.  As it ended up the runner stopped and took a beer from the bride, and headed off with beer in hand.  First time for that happening.
