“I married my babysitter”? That's right, after knowing Missy since she started babysitting for us at 13 years old, I had the opportunity to do something unusual for her…host her small intimate wedding at our bed and breakfast, Prairieside Suites. This is Missy's second marriage and they are in the midst of building a new home. So it was important for her and her new husband Chris to keep the day simple, stress free and about them. They took their wedding vows with their 5 children while a handful of family and friends looked on. Missy looked stunning in her beautiful red dress and Chris had a matching shirt as they recited the vows they had written for each other. After their ceremony the couple signed their wedding license and had a relaxed time sharing wedding cake and our homemade hot cocoa and coffee with their guests.
The wedding couple spent a romantic evening in our "Southern Mansion Suite" and said they loved the deep over sized jacuzzi for two. The married on New Years Day so what an amazing way to start out the new year!
Here is a note from Missy…
We not only got married at Prairieside Suites but also stayed the night of our wedding. Paul and Cheri so graciously opened their home for us so we could get married somewhere beautiful and memorable. It was perfect with the Christmas decorations. They were so hospitable and welcoming and made our wedding day perfect! If that wasn't enough; then we stayed in the most luxurious suite [we've stayed at other B and B's but let me tell you this one takes the cake]. Talk about being pampered, they have a heated toilet seat and yes it was quite amazing. I didn't even know that I would love this! The room felt like we were staying in a little slice of heaven. The hot tub was amazing; so big and spacious. The snacks that were out in the kitchen made the perfect midnight snack. And breakfast the next morning was a great ending to a beautiful weekend! Omelet’s topped with homemade salsa, bakery bread topped with Cheri's homemade rhubarb jam and fresh fruit were delightful. Thank you Paul and Cheri for such a great start in our new life together as husband and wife!! You really went above and beyond anything we ever could of hoped for!! And we look forward to staying again soon. Love, Missy and Chri
