Megan and Justin are Married!

Congratulations to Megan and Justin!

A little over a week ago I was very happy to have been part of the wedding of Megan and Justin, two lovely young people from Wood County. See, Aren’t they cute?

The wedding was held at the Wisconsin Firefighter Memorial, right on the edge of the Wisconsin River, on the border between Wisconsin Rapids and Nekoosa. This is a marvelous spot for a wedding; it has a lovely gazebo, which is perfect for a fall wedding, as well as several spots for services close to a beautiful view over the water. If that doesn’t catch your attention, the wall of honor for the brave men and women who have given their lives protecting their fellow citizens is not to be missed. If you are in Wisconsin Rapids, take a bit of time and go see it.  Think about the people we seldom know and all depend upon for our safety. Bless every one of them, past, present and future.


Megan and Justin chose to have a ‘paint ceremony’ where they would mix colors on a prepared canvas as a permanent work of art to be hung in their new home. Justin chose a rich red and Megan’s color was a chrome yellow, together they made a glorious mess, swirled and melded together in one happy image!  Sadly, I wasn’t able to get a picture, though. Just as a note to anyone who wants to try that at their own wedding, be sure everything is well protected from any stray breezes—the wind knocked over the canvas and one of the paint vases, but luckily nothing was broken and we were able to go ahead in spite of some spilled paint.

The Brides maids had not only bouquets of roses, and sunflowers, but shielded Megan during her walk to the gazebo using some very pretty lace parasols—what a clever idea!  Justin didn’t see her until she was right in front of him.

The ceremony did start late, since we were told that the DJ originally scheduled was unable to make it; we were a little upset by that.  One of the groomsmen made a few calls to a friend and DJ on the Go sent Brandon, a marvelous young man who was able to patch in the playlist from Megan’s phone. Despite not having been at the rehearsal, this talented young man ran the music, and was able to mute it during the spoken parts of the ceremony as well.  My thanks to him and his company for being there when they were needed and doing such a wonderful job!


For Megan and Justin, we wish every happiness, now and in the future!


Rev. Zita.

PLEASE READ:  On a side note: We later learned that the reason the original DJ was not able to attend the wedding as arranged was a very sad one. There was apparently a multi-car accident on the freeway, and sadly, he was involved in it. We have no idea if he was injured or not, but we all hope he will be well!
