Long Time Fellow Woody Boater Mark C And His Future Bride Emily H Share Thier Engagement Photos On A CC!
Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Mark C and Emily H for sharing these amazing photos of there official engagement photos. Love is certainly in the air up there in Wisconsin. Emily H is stunning and to top that all off, is into restoring her grandpa’s racing hydro soon! Maybe Emily H stands for Hydro? Mark C, owns a beautiful 1961 24′ Chris Craft Sportsman and other choice Woody’s.. Thanks to photographer Dustin Waller Link Here.
Emily (Hurd) and Mark (Christensen) dated in high school in Rockford, IL We kept in touch for the last 17 years. We started talking again Jaunary of 2013 and Mark moved back to the Midwest from Sag Harbor, NY to be with her. They got engaged last December and are getting married this October in her mom’s woods.
Emily’s grandpa built a racing hydroplane back in the early 1940’s. We JUST pulled it out of the woods last summer and plan to restore that this year. That will be a fun project!!
Now back to those official engagement photos.. Stunning stuff.
Thanks to Mark C and Emily H soon to be Emily C on their CC for sharing these very personal and stunning photos. We all wish you all a very long happy life together.
Love that Hydro. Send Matt update stories as that progresses.
Was the Hydro a modern age Dowery? Looks like Don forgot to cover it.
How good is Emily at sanding and varnishing? Learn the important things first!!
Thanks for sharing this “engaging” moment with us! Emily will be a stunning bride in October. Good luck in restoring the Hydro, it will be a fun project. Be sure to share her progress.
past, present and future…
very, very cool…
just made my day…
Nice hydro . Looking forward to racing against it some day soon.
Congratulations you two. Boating is a nice way to bond. Glad you share it.
Next up, wedding photos please. (if you can’t be near the boat, bring a little model. Your photographer can shoot it in the foreground with you folks in the background. We’ll never know the difference.)
CONGRATULATIONS, Mark & Emily!!
Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! The pictures are wonderful…good planning, Mark! Will both of you be in GL for the Aug. 2 wooden boat show? Hope so!
Here’s my kid JP ogling your cool hydroplane last fall in Lake Geneva…what a fun family hand-me-down! I know you’ll put her back like new, and any future Christensens will love her, too!
Looks like nothing that can’t be fixed with a little duct tape and a few coats of varnish. They should have her back racing in no time.
Beautiful. I’ve taken my boat to two lake weddings so the bride and groom could leave by water, rather than car. And to take photos. Guess which photos they always like the best.
Come to think of it, marriages are a lot like wood boats.
They generally are only built to last a few years, but with general maintenance and care, lots of work, the occasional patching, varnishing over, and rebuilding, more time and money than you would like to acknowledge etc. they can be made to last, or at least kept afloat with the aid of a good bucket.
Hmmmm, but you can’t put your marriage in storage for the winter.
Ugh, I better stop now before my wife’s lawyer calls…
Craig Mac said it perfect. Best Wishes
Congrats Mark & Emily!
A quick shot from the following weekend at his bachelor party. That’s me driving TIVOLI but I dont know if mark was face up at this moment….
In her Green Lake cradle.
