Mandy & Mike's Fall DIY Walled Lake Wedding
Mandy & Mike. Oh, where do I begin? These sweethearts don't have your typical love story. The pair met at church and have been friends for years. Mike actually prayed for Mandy to become his for 3 years before she finally said "I do" on the property of their Walled Lake church, Lakes Baptist! It's no surprise to those who know Mandy that Mike would wait so long for her. Mandy is an amazing, authentic and beautiful person. When I first met her, I felt like we had been friends for years. I got excited with Mandy as she described how they really desired a wedding that primarily honored Christ, not themselves. I knew this was a wedding that I REALLY wanted to be a part of. The pair can be seen below using the "cord of three strands" illustration during their ceremony to symbolize a marriage based on God! Mandy also spoke so highly of so many friends of theirs who would be involved in all of the set up and decoration process, not to mention their bridal party who would be busy whipping up scrumptious breakfast food for several hundred guests. The bridal party sported aprons custom embroidered by matron of honor Aleah's mom, Dawn! I was blown away by the love Mike and Mandy share and by the happiness that surrounded them! Every last detail of this day was sweet and I am so so glad I was a part of it. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Zielinski! I can't wait to see what God does in and through you as you embark on your life together!
