A Summer Country Club Wedding at Swan Valley Golf and Banquet Center in Saginaw, Michigan
Amy Allen (27 and an elementary school teacher) and David Bachtell (32 and a systems engineer) had their soft summer wedding at Swan Valley Golf and Banquet Center in Saginaw, Michigan. They had their nontraditional wedding ceremony surrounded by closest friends and family. Under a flower-adorned arch, the couple said their vows and placed together a three-part white wooden unity heart. "The outer heart represents the husband, inner heart the wife and the gemstone core represents God, who binds us together in his perfect love," Amy says. Amy found her white sleeveless wedding dress at Perfect Fit Bridal. The intricate lace overlay on the dress brought a gentle atmosphere to the ceremony as she walked down the aisle. Frankenmuth Florist provided pastel pink and white rose bouquets for Amy and her bridesmaids, which beautifully contrasted against the mint green cocktail bridesmaid dresses from David's Bridal. With pink and coral roses, The Gourmet Cupcake Shoppe's four-tier masterpiece wowed the guests with raspberry cheesecake, lemon-drop, and chocolate truffle-flavored cake. A fun element to their reception was the photo booth with fun props. "We even had a duo photographer team capturing guests letting loose and showing off their goofy sides," Amy says. Advice from the bride: "On your wedding day, don't stress and worry about the small, minor details, because in the end, nobody else will remember what went wrong, but will instead be focused on you both and the beautiful day," Amy says.
