On this Saturday, the sun was shining… the sky was blue… and the Lake was sparkling like the Caribbean. As we drove up north, through quiet lake towns… I reflected on what it as like to go to my grandparents’ cottage on the lake. To spend long weekends there during the summer… with aunts, uncles, and cousins all around… to eat ice cream cones as big as your face… to jump into the Great Lake and stay outside from breakfast until dinner. I’m sure my experience wasn’t exactly the same as Riley’s, but we can definitely agree that there’s something special about spending time at your grandparents’ house… isn’t there? And when your grandparents’ house is on the coast of Lake Huron, you may even dream about getting married there someday… ;)
Rodney + Riley, thank-you for inviting us north – to Grandma’s house on the lake. It was so special to witness the two of you speak your vows + commit your lives to each other in front of family + friends, on the property that’s so dear to you, with Lake Huron as the backdrop. It was a perfect day and we were so honored to celebrate alongside of you. Cheers to many, many years, you two!
There were SO many special details to this day – including the fact that Riley wore her mother’s wedding dress! She had it altered perfectly for her!
Meanwhile, in the cottage next door…
Riley’s grandmother stood beside her as her Matron of Honor! So sweet.
