On August 29th, 2009, Gretchen and Ryan exchanged personal vows in Williamsburg, MI at the Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel.  Gretchen and Ryan come from Pickney, MI and their plans were to hold their ceremony outdoors on Turtle Creek’s balcony.   Due to the uncooperative weather, their ceremony moved indoors and nonetheless, they remained to have a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony.

Gretchen looked absolutely stunning her wedding gown.  It was so simple and elegant and I could tell just fit her personality.  Both sisters were her maid of honor and both shared funny stories of her growing up.  As for both brothers of the Groom and both Best Men, they shared their undying love towards Ryan.  But the tears didn’t well up for me until Gretchen’s dad stood up to speak.   It just melts my heart when I hear a parent express their unconditional love towards their child especially when it’s from a father to her daughter.  Gretchen’s oldest sister later sang for the couple’s first dance.  Might I say, what a talent and so very sentimental!!  She also  sang another song for both parents of the couple.

What an amazing day as well as evening that I had the honor and privilege to be a part of.
