Crystal + Howard | Wedding September 2nd, 2018 | Broadview Christmas Tree Farm Highland, Michigan

I remember Crystal having her eye on me for a long while, but was having some car trouble so she had to wait, but that never stopped me from keeping in touch with her. I would double (and triple check in) not only to see if things were going alright, but to see if she was ready to book!

When they were ready, we met at a Jungle Java. Usually, I like to meet at Panera but it just so happened that that particular night we both had our sons so we thought, “Why not?” Let’s let the boys play and they have free WiFi!”

So why the boys played, we talked wedding and got to know one another.

This was my first double header wedding and September was still a little warm but I handled both weddings like a champ! The weather was absolutely perfect for their wedding day. I started with Crystal’s details. All her special items from jewelry to shoes to flowers and security badges.

Jars marked “No Ugly Crying” filled with tissues strategically placed around the ceremony area, but that didn’t stop Mom! Howard and Crystal, just a couple fun goofs together ending the night with their sun, knee deep in mud!
