A Creative Marriage From The Get-Go.

My wife Louise really loved her three very creative sons, Will, Pierce and Mason.

Two Saturdays ago Will had the pleasure of marrying his fiancee, Stacey Doll, in a very unique and creative ceremony in Chester county, Pennsylvania.>

The day was sunny and warm, which I suspect could not be said for the middle of the Brandywine Creek,
where the ceremony took place.

About thirty friends and family members looked down on the bride and groom as they exchanged vows.

And of course posed for photos as they braced themselves against the current. The event and the beautiful environment were overflowing with love and metaphor.

The reception was held a short distance away in a rustic and very historic Inn. I got there early and went wandering up on the second floor. I do lots of sketching in old Inns in South Jersey.

As I heard people gathering in the dinning room below, I could swear I saw fleeting images of guests
enjoying social events in this very inn, many decades in the past?

 Wherever she is, I'm sure Louise was offering her love and best wishes to her son Will, and his new bride.
Welcome to our family, Stacey. You and Louise would have been like two peas in a pod.



  1. congratulations all around to all. may the newlyweds know much gladness always.

  2. Congratulations to the happy couple! That is truly the most unique place I've seen vows being exchanged ; ) Are they avid fishers or is there another story there? And I love what you said about Louise <3

  3. So terrific, Bill! Warmest wishes to the happy, creative couple! I love what they did to begin their married lives together.
