The tent was abuzz with conversation. People were talking about how beautiful the Mass was and how happy they were for Emily and Brock. We also found ourselves lost in conversation with an old friend, Br. Mike, when Brock came to let us know that he and Emily were about to make their rounds of […]

Mr. & Mrs. Drahus

Mr. Carpenter had everyone giggling as he spoke of peacock feathers and pointed out their quickly-passing beauty. Once you get a good look, he said, you’re likely to be less impressed by what once seemed so beautiful. Though this is typically the case, it’s not what happened when he handed Christine, his “peacock feather,” to […]

Mr. and Mrs. Laflamme

The church was dark due to the evening rain. It was the middle of the week, but also so much more. All of us in attendance had woken up that morning expecting a typical Wednesday, but by 7 pm we found ourselves in the pews at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Brighton, Michigan. Deacon Jerry […]

Mr. and Mrs. O’Brien

Champagne bubbled in tall glasses. Family and friends turned their attention first to the matron of honor, then to the best man, then to members of the bride and groom’s family. The room was silent so as to not miss a word from speech givers. The best man and matron of honor often know the […]

Mr. and Mrs. Morie

Lights and candles sparkled throughout the barn. A colorful sunset illuminated the sky beyond the mountains. Friends and family selected their own seats in the beautiful and comfortable space. The evening was filled with so much joy.  Fr. Diego stood with a microphone in one hand and a gift in the other. As he shared […]

Mr. and Mrs. Coli

The church was filled with friends and joy. Abby and Christian sat perpendicular to the congregation, and their love and excitement for each other and marriage was evident. Father Petri’s voice filled the room as he reflected on the most basic and fundamental truths of our faith, and of marriage. Like the first paragraph of […]

Mr. and Mrs. Obuchowski

Amy headed to the hotel lobby with Claire and her bridesmaids. The limo to the church had arrived. Everyone climbed on board. It wouldn’t be long now. Patrick was already at the church waiting for the start of their nuptial Mass. Kyle was there with him. Amy sat with Claire’s mom, Victoria, and as they […]

Mr. and Mrs. Moran

Libby took a seat on a chair in the middle of the dance floor. Stephen stood ten paces across the room. His eyes locked on his new bride. Men from his Catholic fraternity huddled behind him. Libby’s eyes shone with the brightest twinkle as she looked from her husband to his friends. The room was […]

Mr. & Mrs. Racz

The excitement and joy from the nuptial Mass still clung to the air. We hid from the hot sun with Roxio and Alexis on the side of the church. The small strip of shade provided great relief and a moment’s rest. Alexis held in his hands a box. It was a long rectangular box, and […]
