We now have professional woody wedding photos, okay, we have as a family 100’s of them. So I curated the ones for you all the ones that relate to woody boating, and to anyone searching the www for theme weddings, the use of classic boats and a marina or boat yard as a venue, an idea at how it can look. I will add, that this may be the most classic boats used at a wedding. A total of 5 were used. And 1 Model A. Okay and lots of classic people, and some classic weather.
At the dock at home ready for a ride

The Reedville Stack.. oh ya and the happy couple..and a Whicker sister
Special shoes for the Bride and Groom.
The rings are ready. Old family rings.
The Railway is ready. Simple clean Tables and chairs.
We left lots of the texture of a working boatyard in place.
More texture. Lots and lots of texture
Maybe too much texture
The Glenna Faye was being worked on. Built here at the Railway in the late 40’s.
The Moms show up to the Railway. And Wayne photo bombing. Oh we have many Wayne photo bomb shots. I am sensing a new theme here. A Wayne Bomb?

A Huge thanks to Ashley Peterson for doing an amazing job capturing the joy of the moment. Here is a link to her website.
Very nice, thanks for sharing.
Very very nice. You did really good!
Perfection in every detail!
What an amazing setting for a wedding complete with these beautiful memories. After attending a friends wedding this past Memorial Day on Saint Augustine Beach I know how much fun you guys must’ve had.
Congrats Matt. Beautiful wedding.
Congratulations on a beautiful day for you and your families Matt! An amazing setting for a beautiful beginning! Dreams are made of these!
Much better than any of those costly places and you can have so much more fun at yours
It looks like it was a perfect day in a perfect setting! My youngest son is getting married next fall on the dock/deck at a local marina, and the plan is to have the bride arrive in my Continental! With some help of the local Michigan gang, we could go for the 5 boat record and bring up the rest of the bridal party! Lol
Beautiful couple, setting and event! Congratulations to all! Looking at the shoes, I’m wondering if the bride has relatives in Seattle – we have some good friends, last name Nuss – Rodney and Barbara. She used to own the “Miss Thriftway/Century 21” unlimited hydroplane… 🙂
Congratulations to ALL, very nice venue.
Molly-O, G.O.D.(Grand Old Dame) ( a 25 ft CC Red and White) And Champion’s Auto Ferry were the only 3 boats used for our son’s wedding……..so we come in a distance 3rd.
Wow Dick ……as the world turns…… I think I met Barbara at a Clayton NY Race Boat Regatta back in the late 90’s. As I recall she was just in the process of obtaing a/that Hydroplane.
Great post today Matt. It was very timely. I have been thinking about weddings and anniversaries all morning. Today would have been my Mom and Dads 73 anniversary. Dad passed away in 2014 and Mom in 2020. They still got to enjoy 65 years together. May the new Bride and Groom enjoy at least that many years of happy boating, as Bob and Alice did.
Lovely event and happy people!
A beautiful collection of pics and memories for sure. Congrats to both families!
Does tying the boats, railway, dog, and wedding all together get you a write off? Asking for a friend. Actually, asking for all of us.
These are fantastic! Congratulations to the happy couple…wishing for you a future filled with adventures and joy!
So now we know how you convinced the Boatress to agree to buying the railway, all the savings from wedding venue costs!
Thanks for making me feel like part of the family
I’m sure I’m the black sheep
Looks like all had a wonderful time!!!!
Congrats Matt and all the best wishes for the happy couple too!
Our daughter will be doing the same at our marina next year.
Maybe a wedding venue is one more preservation opportunity………..😄
