Amy and Chef Nick wed at the overlook in Frances Park

If you’re studying culinary arts in the Lansing area, you may know Chef Nick. He and his lucky bride, Amy, celebrated a June wedding with family and friends in the overlook area of Frances Park, right next to Nick’s “thinking rock”, his favorite spot in the world to relax and contemplate the future.

Nick’s Best Man, Peppermint Jim, has a section of his website devoted to Nick and his contributions to the local culinary community here.

Nick was the brains behind this wedding. He told me he was planning it all for his bride (who lives in Wisconsin). All she needed to do was choose a dress. I must say, he did an excellent job of pulling everything together for a simple, yet elegant ceremony in his favorite Lansing spot.

Nick was looking for something simple yet meaningful and found it in my basic Christian ceremony. They decided to add a Blending of the Sand ceremony to make it even more personal. When Nick asked if I could hold his Grandmother’s bible during the ceremony, I was honored to do so and tucked the ceremony pages within so the bible could be featured in their wedding photos.

Here’s one of the testimonials they gave me after their ceremony:

Kya Rose was so professional and sweet, right from the initial interview we felt comfortable. She showed up on on time for both the wedding rehearsal and the ceremony. Her service during the ceremony was wonderful. She had also kept a great communication with us right up to the actual wedding, and even after congratulating us.

I would highly recommend Kya, she is such a sweetheart that made us feel less stressed about the details of filing afterwards, as we could head right out on our honeymoon, Kya took care of all the paperwork too.

Kya created a very special moment for Me, when she agreed to use my grandmothers bible during the ceremony in place of her own. It was very important to me that Kya was so willing without a second thought.”

Thanks Nick and Amy. Your ceremony was an absolute joy and I wish you every happiness!
