Wedding with Celtic Flair at Academy of the Sacred Heart

Congratulations to Mary and Matthew, married last week at Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills.  The church was beautifully decorated with poinsettias, red tea lights, pinecone and evergreen pew decorations.  Mary wore a vintage style dress while her bridesmaids wore elegant black gowns.  All the ladies carried white bouquets of roses and hydrangeas with embellished with white feathers.  It was a lovely effect.  Mary and Matthew had a couple of special requests for us.  Following a prelude of light classics which included, Claire De Lune, the couple’s mothers were seated to “The Ludlow’s” from the romantic movie, “Legends of the Falls”.  The bridal party processed to a Celtic version of “Be Thou My Vision” while Mary entered to another Celtic favorite, “Give My Your Hand”.   Deacon John Schulte delivered a touching ceremony marked with several personal references to the couple.  Wedding coordinator, Danielle, was a tremendous help both to us and the family.  Jenna, cantor and also bridesmaid, did a lovely job with the responsorial psalm and alleluia.  Following their introduction, the couple recessed to Bittersweet Symphony, which has been very popular this year.  We extend our best wishes to Mary and Matthew as they begin their life together.
