Local Love

Michelle Book and Woodward Brenton

On a crisp morning last fall, Michelle Book and Woodward Brenton exchanged vows in the Rollins Mansion garden. The garden, complete with one happy red cardinal, provided the perfect backdrop for striking dahlia arrangements by Indie Florals. After the intimate ceremony, family and friends enjoyed a lavish brunch created by Delmonico Catering. As one speaker said at the wedding: “While some people never arrive at true marital bliss, others are fortunate to experience this gift more than once in a lifetime. Woody and Michelle are lucky to have found love together later in life and are grateful for this opportunity.”

Natalie Pearson and Ben Gislason met, became engaged and married at Lutheran Church of Hope. “There is no greater moment in life to vow in front of God and all of your favorite people that you will choose to unconditionally love this person for the rest of your days,” Natalie says. The reception at Sticks Inc. featured Max Wellman and his band, “who were magical,” she says. Other highlights, Natalie adds, included Saley Nong’s floral arrangements and the “mouthwatering menu” created by Taste! To Go.
