A Mackinac Island Wedding — this one phrase conjures all of the simplistically perfect comfort, hope, and hard work that unites any family. Mackinac Island is unspoiled cars, and its location surrounded by Lake Huron makes it easy to unplug, unwind, and take a deep breath needed to focus your heart and mind on the things in life that truly matter.
The true things in life were never more evidently seen than the union of the Hyndman and Bradley family. Their intimate wedding took place at The Inn at Stonecliffe, a grand bed and breakfast that once hoped to serve as the summer President's House. Located roughly forty minutes (by horse and carriage) from the main area of Mackinac, the Inn set the tone for a wedding of classic elegance.
Those who are fortunate enough to know either Jesica or Peter understand exactly why everyone was so willing to pitch in to help these two prepare for their special day. Both are incredibly kind, compassionate individuals who are giving of themselves, selflessly, every day. They are the kind of people who dedicate their lives to public service and who see the best in each person they meet no mater what circumstances come their way. I am incredibly proud to have been able to be a part of their wedding, and was amazed at how the personalities of both came out in each and every detail of their bicycle themed wedding.
Jesica and Pete chose to tie together a strand to symbolize their love for one another and their devotion to God as the common thread throughout their marriage.
"A strand of three cords is not easily broken." -Ecclesiastes 4:12
The ceremony was sealed with a kiss and the newly weds headed back to the Inn to enjoy a reception, complete with an ice cream sundae bar!
While Pete and Jes are beautiful on their own, they are able to be even more compassionate, able to give more, and able to spread their love together and with the support of those who love them most.
