.true love.

this is where we're getting married. isn't it beautiful?

specifically... our ceremony will be in that gorgeous little chapel. henry ford designed it in honor of his mother, martha, and his mother-in-law, mary. hence, it is called the martha mary chapel. it's very simple inside, which is perfect for us. our ceremony will not be a religious one, so we're thankful for the plain interior. plain, but really pretty.

the reception will be in the eagle tavern. this place is so so cool. it's a tavern that was running in michigan in the 1850s. the building still has two working fireplaces, so those will be roaring for the whole night! we're getting an old-timey band to play for a couple hours, with a fiddle and such. it's going to be so great.

it was far too dark on saturday to take any interior pictures of the tavern, and the chapel was locked. but, i have a bunch of photos of both interiors from this summer, if you'd like to see them.

yay or nay?

p.s. that guy in the picture with the tavern? that's eric :)

Isn't it just? I'm so sad we didn't get to renew our membership until now... I'm glad you like it, Carrie!

that was fun!

Corey and I had so much fun, although were a bit exhausted. We will have to go back on a warm day.


Can't wait to see you again in a few weeks.

ps. make the grape pie before it goes bad!

Yay! I'm glad you think so, Carlene. I wish it was sooner. Sort of...

Matt, I'm so glad you guys were there! We were exhausted too, (the wind!!) but it was so worth it. We can take you anytime with our new membership next summer :) I'll make the pie for Xmas when you're in town. It'll be fine for then, I'm sure!
