Rob and Gina 3/18/2011

Here are some pictures from one of our recent weddings.

Gina and Rob 3/18/2011

Gina and Rob, they got engaged at Mackinac Island.  Rob proposed with a Cracker Jack box that he had carefully snuck the ring into!  They wanted to bring some of these elements into their celebration.  So they used postcards for the hydroboats that take you to Mackinac as their guestbook.  A pretty, vintage box held pens and invited guests to give them their good wishes on the postcards.  They then would deposit them in the little mail box.

Their favors were boxes of Cracker Jacks, with a prominent sign "Ring not included!" 

Their ceremony, in the chapel, was designed to incorporate their children and recognize their place in the marriage.  Each child was presented with a medallion commemorating the event.

They chose to have a head table which was a round, with all of their children and the two of them.  Their best man and matron of honor sat close by at rounds with their spouses.  They opted for the basic uplighting--ten uplights around the room in pale green.  The effect was amazing!
Their colors were pale green and chocolate.  Favors were boxes of Mackinac Island fudge.  I always like to see couples that feed each other the wedding cake and do it respectfully and gently.  I think it says something about their relationship as a whole. 
They did an awesome first dance, starting out with a traditional slow song and then busting into a rap that had the crowd howling!
All in all it was a really special wedding!  Lots of thought and preparation paid off in a celebration that was personal to the couple, and very special to their guests.

Congrats you two!  Many happy years together!
