Our lucky 7/7/07 Wedding!!

The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa served as host for the marriage of Laren and David.

We first caught up to our bride and her party at ths salon while finishing touches to hair and make-up were being applied.

Lauren returned to her room to finish getting dressed and then, accompaied by her parents, went to meet David at the Pavillion. The Groom was obvisously taken aback by his beautiful bride. We took this time before the ceremony to take Bride and Groom portraits, as well as family groupings.

It was then time for our couple to return inside and meet with the Rabbi for the signing of the Ketubah. The Ketubah is the marriage contract which is signed by the couple, their parents and the Rabbi. It has standing as a legal document and the couple is now married in the eyes of their faith.

The ceremony was held outside under the pavillion. Even mans best freind was an honored guest. The couple stood under the Chuppah that had been Larens grandmothers. The couple drank from the Kiddish cup to symbolize their joy. The glass was broken and shouts of Mazel Tov and congradulations greeted the couple as the made their way down the asile.

The Michigan Room was transformed into a thing of beauty. The flowers were exquisite. Their florist and designer from Chicago did a masterful job. Lighting, draping and linins all went together to make a very impressine place to celebrate.
