Rachel and Kenâ€™s wedding was beyond amazing. I found myself talking about it with other clients, friends and family for weeks afterward which tells you that it was our very favorite kind – simple, playful, intimate and elegant. The ceremony took place at the Gates of Heaven in James Madison Park – a beautiful little venue. The officiant spoke about marriage in a way I have never heard someone speak before – he said that every day since the day this couple met they have made little promises to stand by one another, to be there when they are needed, and to love one another. Those little promises, the officiant stated, were the vows of their marriage, and that day was just an official stamp to celebrate all they had promised one another.
The couple had just two people in their wedding party and the six of us plus the immediate family headed up the road to a little community garden to take some formal photos and enjoy the beautiful weather. The mood was relaxed and joyous – so much laughter. The reception was picnic-themed with luxurious blankets and pillows, long tables covered in white linen, burlap and tiny vases filled with locally-grown flowers. The food was delicious comfort food – perfect for a picnic: macaroni and cheese, chicken, cheese curds, baby red potato salad and Door County cherry pie. Every part of the day felt natural and every person there seemed so incredibly happy to be able to celebrate with the new Mr. and Mrs. Rachel and Ken Geller. Congratulations; and cheers to many happy years together!
