Welcome. We gather here on God's beautiful beach to celebrate the joyful union of this man, (Groom) and this woman, (Bride) in Holy Matrimony.

Matt Kurtz surprised his wife, Ashley, with renewing their vows even though they were married in a church in January 2016. The couple went to Lowdermilk Park carrying beach chairs to take in the sun. Unbeknownst to Ashley, Phyllis was waiting for them and Matt told her I was going to do a ceremony. She was truly surprised. We picked a quiet spot on the beach for the ceremony. The weather could not have been better with those beautiful blue skies. Ashley is employed as a hairstylist and Matt is a teacher. They have since returned to their home in Rockford, Illinois.
