12 Months of Dates – November: A Longwood Christmas

Our Wedding Album

With joyful hearts we request your presence in….our walk down memory lane! Grab a seat and enjoy the show!
 
Adam and I got married on Friday, August 10, 2012, a little over four years after we started dating. We got married on Mackinac Island, a tiny 8 mile island in the middle of the Great Lakes. Our wedding ceremony and wedding reception took place at the Island House Hotel.

It also helped that I met my future husband on Mackinac Island, as well (so clearly it wasn’t too hard to convince him).
