Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
We’re back this week with new Real Wedding Wednesday posts, featuring submissions from our spring/summer 2021 issue (which starts hitting newsstands this week)! This week’s couple wed this February in a vintage Valentine-themed wedding, but their décor included some lovely Christmas trees that fit this week perfectly. Maureen and Lawrence Groezinger are “a Tinder-match romance,” Maureen says.
“Absolutely magical that it snowed just enough to be a true ‘winter wonderland’ outside the large clubhouse windows,” she adds of their wedding day, which she calls “deeply personal and meaningful.” Both musicians, Maureen and Lawrence incorporated live renditions of their favorite songs into their ceremony and reception. The band even learned John Denver’s “Country Roads” to surprise guests from West Virginia, and a Phish cover to surprise Lawrence.
