Sherwood Country Club Wedding with a Marine

Sherwood Country Club Wedding with a Marine… and his Beautiful Bride

Written by Andrea Schmitt:

We all get bogged down with the everyday stresses of life.  The one thing that always puts things into perspective for me is when I read a story, see a show or see photos of people in military uniform.  I have a deep respect for the men and women in the military, so obviously it was an honor to spend an entire day with Marine and his lovely bride.  Julie and Matt got married at  one of our favorite wedding venues, Sherwood Country Club .

Any bride will tell you that planning a wedding is insane!  Now imagine planning a wedding on the short timeframe based on the schedule of an active Marine.  Julie along with coordinators Allison and Heather from Sherwood Country Club, kicked butt putting together this amazing soirée.  It was the sweet, elegant details that I noticed- I mean look at that cake topper! Perfect.

No tux here..Matt wore his Marine formals and looked the part. Marines are trained to handle the most difficult situations and don’t show fear very easily. And his wedding day was no exception.  His nerves were in check and he seemed very excited to marry the love of his life! As for our stunning bride, her entire look, was nothing but gorgeous!  I was going crazy over that veil.

As a father I would imagine giving away your daughter on their wedding must be one of the most emotional days of their life.  Julie’s father’s toast was filled with emotion, but also happiness in knowing that his daughter would be well taken care of by this wonderful man.  For all you fathers out there this is the type of guy you want your daughter to marry!  He even called dad and traditionally asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage.

Julie and Matt may your journey be as beautiful as your wedding day!  And to both of you, thanks for the service and sacrifice for our country.
