May 3, 2014 | Jeff & Susan

Congratulations to our newest BMH bride and groom: Jeff and Susan. They had a beautiful ceremony at Lakeview! For a few minutes, rain poured and the ceremony was slightly delayed.

Head, Sweetheart, or Neither | Table Options for the Bride & Groom

The Nontraditional Bride & Wedding Traditions

Today I want to talk about the nontraditional bride, and specifically, the non-traditional bride and wedding traditions. At first glance, these do not go together.

It seems that every year there are new wedding trends and ideas. Years ago, brides didn’t give a second thought as to what they were wearing to get ready, there was no such thing as a “first look”, and you didn’t have to have a Starbucks cup with “Bride” written on it.  With so many different ideas becoming […]

Area Attractions

Mike Landis Photography We’ve been having quite a few of our brides contact us lately regarding BMH’s surrounding area. With more and more destination weddings occurring, and couples so frequently having a large amount of out-of-town guests, we’ve been hearing the question, “What can my guests do while in town for our wedding?” We’ll admit, […]
