You are invited to a picnic in Maine.......SURPRISE it is a wedding!!

What can be more fun that getting invited to a backyard picnic on a lovely day in Maine???   How about a SURPRISE wedding!  That's right, none of the guests would have suspected.  They were so busy trying to decide what they would cook to bring and share, that the thought of a wedding never entered their mind.  How fun is that?

Michelle and Doug wanted to have a wedding with a few of their closest friends and family, they wanted them to be relaxed and they wanted everyone to have a good time.  When the guests arrived, they were enjoying the food and fun, and Rev. Heather just showed up and mingled with the gang as a "friend" of the couple.  At the appointed time, Rev. Heather called the group to come over to a pretty tree, the location that Doug and Michelle had chosen to say their vows.

Once the guests came to the appointed area, they were still bewildered, then all of a sudden, they realized that Heather was a minister, and in fact, there was going to be a wedding! 


Rev. Heather said,"  I went to the appointed place and called everyone to gather around - the Bride's father is half way through his chmeo for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He has always been the support of his family . Her parents lit right up when they found out it was a wedding and the father of the bride cried. (Mother of the bride tries valiantly not to, but was only marginally successful). It was a huge surprise to the guests and the looks on their faces was priceless. A collective jaw drop straight to the grass. Both bride and groom were beaming and everyone was very happy."

Great job keeping the surprise!  I wish the new Mr. & Mrs. Long and their family a lifetime of happiness.
