Thunder was roaring and rumbling above as they said “I do” yesterday evening. Like the rain I saw the absolute authentic love these two & their families share -the toast microphone was passed like a basket of rolls and tears were on everyone’s cheeks including mine. So refreshing to dive back into wedding season, sore feet and all. ✨ @ Fort Wayne, Indiana

What a crazy-beautiful day! And what a fantastic couple-and amazing photographs!

What a crazy-beautiful day! And what a fantastic couple-and amazing photographs!

OK you all...I need your help! You see this couple has been through so much! Their original wedding date was May 16. The ceremony was obviously cancelled because of Covid. They rescheduled for July 4, 2020! The day was HOT, humid and just kind of miserable....nothing like the outdoor spring wedding they had hoped for.

By the time we got to photos, the clouds came out and there was a slight breeze. It actually was not too bad. BUT, I kept my eye on the sky and the radar and by 4:23, it was raining and raining hard. We decided to postpone the ceremony for 1 hour. The rain started to slow, and we made the emotional decision to just go for it!!

All the guests were AMAZING! They ran outside, wiped down chairs and helped get everything ready. The family and wedding party basically ran down the aisle as the rain started in again. BUT, you guys...EVERYONE was ok with it. EVERYONE was joyful.

It was messy and wet and emotional and JOYFUL and PERFECTLY PERFECT! I know this post is longer and contains more photos than normal...BUT THEY DESERVE IT! Take the time look at their photos and leave them some kind, beautiful words about their day because these two have beautiful souls and let's be honest, we can all use some positive, uplifting things in our lives these days!

I wish God's greatest blessing on you both, Cady Farlow and Grant Wilson! I hope you enjoy this sneak peak as much as I enjoyed sharing it!

The Red Stiletto

Gazebos became popular in the gardens of monasteries, as shrines and places of meditation during the Renaissance.⁠

We thought this was an interesting fact, since now they are often used as places of unity during a wedding.⁠

I've always had a special admiration of gazebos. Something about the hexagonal structure has always seemed so cool. ⁠

Pair it with a lake, and the vibe is laid back, serene, and oh so effortless. ⁠

Using this time to prepare for that glorious time when we can open our doors with no restrictions. With you in mind we have: Had the pond maintenance company begin the first treatment to keep our water algae-free (all the while mindful of ‘Mama and Papa Goose’ and their three adorable babies), Gave the grass it’s first mowing (mindful of the baby bunnies), sanded and painted the outdoor water feature in the courtyard, planning (and waiting impatiently) the flower pots and beds, painting, and.... cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.
We have you covered, health-wise, as we plan for hand-sanitizing stations near food service, masks and gloves for service staff, and keeping a watchful eye on any new ‘best practices’ for food and beverage service.
Stay well! Wear those masks, mind social distancing and stay home if possible. We have a lot of celebrating to do with you!!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

By special request, the Easter Bunny will be making a special visit on Easter Sunday from 4pm- 5pm at The Charles. The Easter Bunny will be located on our front porch waving as you drive through our front parking lot. We would ask that should you want to get a picture with the Easter Bunny that we respect all social distancing requirements at this time and stay at the end of the sidewalk to get your picture. Unfortunately to be sure that all of our children are safe the Easter Bunny will not be handing out candy or hiding eggs. Rain or Shine.

The promise of Spring. ❤️

As sad as we are to do it, we have canceled the Egg Hunt because of the pandemic. We love your ‘little ones’ and, as much joy as they bring us, prefer to keep them from harms way. Happy Easter to you all, hug those babies a little tighter this year! ❤️

Oh gosh, these are amazing! Molly and Daniel were some of the most laid-back people we've met- and so nice!

Stevie Wonder - I Believe (When I Fall In Love)

We were today years old when, having thought we heard every pertinent song for The Processional, we stumbled across this gem from Stevie Wonder.
How did we miss this?!
And who will be our first couple to play this at their wedding?

What a great song ❤️

Amanda was hoping for snow on her wedding day, but Mother Nature wasn't in a snow kind of mood. Even through the rain, the love shined on her and Zach's beautiful day. Blog post coming soon!

Which Charles is the event center named for?
Thank you for having Santa there tonight! It was a nice event and not to busy, we enjoyed it!
Nick & McKinzie's wedding at The Charles last weekend!
I want to thank Michelle, Chris and their entire staff for their part in making my daughter’s wedding day a huge success! Several guests commented on the awesome food and the venue was absolutely beautiful! Michelle made sure the bride and groom were looked after all evening long. Bill the DJ was perfect for our New Years Eve Reception. We are very pleased and happy with the entire staff and venue!
This is a must go be at! Band beyond compare!
