Remember the flood of May 2017? The rain and lake water levels will go down in the history books. For Jenn and Shea, luck would have it that their wedding was scheduled to take place right in the middle of it.
Since their wedding took place in the middle of the heavy rains, the original plan for a lakeside ceremony had to be altered to the backup location that Eganridge offers … the main ballroom. Fortunately for Jenn and Shea, the backup location did the job perfectly. Eganridge’s very accommodating staff rearranged the reception room so that the tables where shuffled to the edges of the room which allowed for plenty of seating for the ceremony. That is one of the benefits of having a wedding at a large facility like Eganridge, couples have a good backup option should the weather not cooperate.
In the case of this wedding, Jenn and Shea prepared for the day’s events at the Dunsford House. The Dunsford House is the original farm house to this property and is conveniently located just a short walk from the main club house. It’s a great location for not just getting ready on the day of the wedding, but Shea told me that the home was fantastic to use the day before for the rehearsal celebrations.
After their ceremony we were fortunate that the rain let up and were able to go outside for the wedding party photos. It was cold and it was windy but we did well considering we were in the middle of “The Flood of 2017”.
An exciting end to the day was Jenn and Shea’s surprise guest. An award winning Elvis impersonator! He sang them their first song and then performed several songs while the guests filled the dance floor. It was a lot of fun and a first for me.
A big thanks for Jenn and Shea for including me in their wedding. Here are a few highlights from their day.
