Ann Arbor Bachelor Party Shenanigans

Kyle celebrated one of his last weekends as a free man with some male bonding with his closest friends in Ann Arbor, MI.  Kyle's brothers and groomsman Casey and Kevin hosted the weekend and made sure that party enjoyed all that Ann Arbor had to offer.
A great weekend had by all the men
The highlight of the weekend festivities was the Michigan-Ohio State football game, one of the best college rivalries. Other manly events over the weekend included paint ball warfare,  lots of great food (meat) and tons of sports! The group (surprisingly) was up early to kick off the Saturday tailgate at 8:00am.  Kyle's best friend from his college days, Drew, scored some great tickets and Kyle was able to enjoy a great game in the Big House.

A great weekend had by all, but Patty is confident her and her bridesmaids will blow this man-fest out of the water when they celebrate Patty's last hoorah as a single lady. Its weird Patty would want to celebrate being single when she wanted to marry Kyle the moment she met him, but oh well....have to keep tradition!

Go Blue!

Save the Dates Sent!

We hope you received our summery save the date on this beautiful snowy week before the holidays. Because Empire / Glen Arbor is such a busy place in the summer we wanted to give everyone enough time to secure a room. There are approximately 50 rooms with great  amazing rates we've reserved for everyone. The majority of the rooms will only be held until January so book now

Thanks to Hillary Voight,  Patty's best friend from college for the lovely picture! 

Happy Thanksgiving! The couple is headed home to Grand Rapids to be with family and friends for the holidays. After eating too much turkey, Kyle is then headed to the Michigan - Ohio State football game with a group of his best friends to celebrate his times as a bachelor. Stay tuned for an update on the impending shenanigans!

The Sööts Threw an Engagement Party

On the 4th of July, three weeks after Kyle popped the question, Patty's Aunt Kay + Uncle Mark Sööt and her little sister / maid of honor Julianna were kind enough to host the engagement party celebrating this most joyous time. Surrounded by siblings, cousins, old friends, new friends, aunts + uncles this was the perfect way to kick off what has been the most amazing year.

Engagement Photos

We're thrilled to have our engagement photos to share with everyone. It was great to get in front of the camera to practice our portrait skills for the big day and meet our talented photographer Meg Van Kampen based out of Holland, Michigan. We took the first round of photos at Aquinas Campus in East Grand Rapids then headed to Lake Michigan near Port Sheldon for sunset. Enjoy!

...and of course Farrah our cutest Cavalier King Charles puppy made an appearance. It was Farrah's first time to the beach (she's a Colorado dog after all).

Save the Date

Dear Family,
With full hearts we’re delighted to share we've set a date and location for our wedding! The ceremony will take place Saturday, August 2, 2014 in Empire, Michigan followed by dinner and dancing in beautiful Glen Arbor.

Why the early notice?
We want to give everyone enough time to secure the date on the calendar and a comfy place in Northern Michigan so you can be by our side as we begin this new chapter of our lives.

In a few months we will send out an official save the date to all of our guests with more specific information on a hotel block in Traverse City and lodging suggestion closer to the ceremony.

So much love,

Patty + Kyle
