Wedding at Historic Chapel of Greenfield Village Unites a Family

Congratulations to Stacy and Tim who were married recently at the Mary and Martha Chapel of Greenfield Village.  At the head and highest spot in Greenfield Village, Henry Ford built this chapel in 1929. The chapel is one of six non-denominational chapels built around the country as a tribute to Mr. & Mrs. Ford’s mothers, Martha Bryant & Mary Litogot Ford.

Adam Reilly of Beacon Baptist Church officiated the ceremony and did a beautiful job incorporating Tim’s son and daughter into the special day.  The couple chose all contemporary music including Lady Gaga, Coldplay, The Verve, Katy Perry and more.  The families processed to “Candle on the Water”, a song made famous in the Disney movie Pete’s Dragon.  In a touching moment, Stacy and Tim involved their children in the sand unity ceremony while we played “Rainbow Connection”.

It was a beautiful day at the Village made even more so by the creation of a new family.  We wish Stacy, Tim and their children the very best as they begin their lives together.

Beautiful Weather Delivers for Garden Wedding at The Henry Ford

Congratulations to Chelsey and Donnie who were married last week in the Ginger Meyer Garden at Lovett Hall, part of the Henry Ford campus.  It was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding and as always, the staff at Henry Ford does a fantastic job of preparing for an elegant event.  Our thanks go out to them for their help with cues and all the ways they assist us.

Chelsey’s mother, Kim, was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning.  It was obvious that she was delighted with Donnie becoming a part of the family.  The large bridal party walked to Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.  Chelsey, wearing a gorgeous gown, processed to the famous Pachelbel Canon escorted by her two brothers.

Following the ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktails inside Lovett Hall.  We had the pleasure of playing for the cocktail hour and the classical music made an appropriate background to the classic elegance of Lovett Hall. Best wishes to Donnie and Chelsey as they begin their lives together.
