Stacey and Dan married in a Catholic ceremony at St. Francis Xavier Church, in Petoskey. "The church is beautifully ornate," Stacey explains. "It needed very little added adornment." For a bit of extra decor, white ribbon was tied to the banister on the church steps and two floral wreaths were mounted on the front doors.
