happy anniversary!

Sixteen Years of Wedded Bliss!

My wonderful husband, Jeff, and I are marking our 16th wedding anniversary, today, September 18.

We were married September 18, 1992, at 7:30 in the evening at Rose Park Baptist Church, here in Holland.

Because our wedding was before the digital photography age, my father-in-law graciously scanned a photo for me to share with you. Our photographer was Nick DeVries, of DeVries Photography. He did a wonderful job and is still in business and highly recommended! A side note...Nick's father took my parents' wedding photos in 1970.

My brother was Jeff's best man; and Jeff's sister, Jennifer, was my MOH. They drove us to the reception in this 1988 Cadillac that belonged to my parents.

Here are more of our details:

Bridal & Bridesmaid Gowns: Grand Village Bridal (a very nice shop that is no longer in business, located in the former Grand Village Mall in Grandville)

Tuxes: Dunhill Tuxedo (available now at September's Bride!)

Reception Location: Sandy Point (lately known as Pigeon Lake Lodge; now sadly closed)

Photographer: DeVries Photography, Holland

Flowers: Floral-A-Fare (since purchased by Eastern Floral); white roses, delphiums, and alstromeria

Color Theme: white, silver, & periwinkle blue; the men wore black tuxes

Wedding Night Suite: Amway Grand Plaza; downtown GR

Honeymoon Destination: Toronto & Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada

My wish for each of you is a long and happy marriage!

September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.

Happy anniversary!! How cool was your honeymoon? We did the same thing only in October. Toronto was a fantastic honeymoon destination and we had so much fun driving there since the trees were changing colors. And the shopping/dining there is so great!
