Can. Not. Wait! Cory and I are so very excited to see the two of you get married and spend a lifetime growing together. Love you both! ❤️
You both did a wonderful job on putting this wedsite altogether. Marriage is about working together side by side, As long as you are each other's Best Friend nothing will come between you. Don't ever forget that! You two make the perfect couple and it shows every time I see you both together. ( mostly in pictures ;-) ) Luv you both!
Love this!! So excited for both of you!! Hoping we can make it to share your special day with you!
Love this.... you two are so stickin cute together... the perfect match! So happy for you .....
So excited and happy for you two! Can't wait for this day, its going to be one hell of a wedding and a vacation! :)
This is perfect, just as you two are together. I'm so happy you choose my son to spend the rest of your life with. I love you both! Mom
PERFECT!!! Just like you are sweetheart! Luv, Mom
This wedsite is awesome, I cried most of the way thru it! I am so excited about this wedding/cruise. I hope to have all my children, grandchildren and maybe even great grandchildren there. You two will have the forever kind of love.
Love you both,
Congratulations on your wedsite! We are honored to be a part of your special day. Thank you for choosing wedsite.com to share your wedding plans and experiences with your friends and family.
1. If you have not set up a login at Carnivals Site you should. You can make your payment, pay for the Booze package, excursions, basically everything can be done there and it is a wealth of information for any questions you may have. We HIGHLY recommend doing your check in online before you leave. You can print your luggage tags and everything ahead of time. If you can’t laminate your tags you may want to get some plastic sleeves of some sort just to be sure they don’t tear.
2. Final Payment to Carnival is due November 21st, if you do not go online or call your remaining balance will be charged on the card you put your deposit on.
3. Remember to look into the Beverage packages (Carnival calls it CHEERS) to see what will work best for you, the chart pictured can help you decide if it is worth it to you to purchase, if you don’t purchase you will be charged per drink on the cruise. If you have never been on a cruise your TV screen in your room displays a running count of your spending in real time. You will give a card for those charges before you board and your card is charged at the end of the trip. If you wait to purchase the package onboard it costs a little more.
4. You have the option to either pre pay your gratuities or have them just added to your bill on the cruise. If you want to pre pay you would need to call Carnival.
5. We have set up an excursion to the Blue Hole and Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica, anyone is welcome to join. The cost is $60 per person and is paid when we arrive right to the tour guide; cash please, I am sure he likes tips too ;). Details will follow in reference to the wedding schedule. For the Cozumel port we haven’t scheduled anything so if you want an excursion you will need to book that on your own.
6. We have set up a reservation at the Steakhouse onboard our first night at 8PM. There is a cost for this ($35 per person) as it is not included in the package, but it comes highly recommended. All are welcome.
7. There is a room block set up in Miami at the Doubletree for the night before we sale (See our Booking Info page). If you haven’t booked your room you should ASAP to be sure they are available.
8. You are allowed to take one bottle of wine per person as well as a 12 pack of CANS of any pop on board if you so choose, again check out Carnival’s Website it’s a wealth of information.
9. Lastly, Don’t forget SUNSCREEN! It is crazy how much it costs if you have to buy it onboard.
WE CANNOT WAIT TO VACATION WITH EVERYONE!!!! 87 DAYS AND COUNTING!
We have blocked rooms in Miami at a discounted rate for the day/night before we sail as everyone arrives. Please visit the site to reserve your room, referencing group code KFW. We have arranged for shuttles to take us to the port on February 4th; the port is 1 mile from the hotel. Join us for some relaxing pool time before we set sail ;)
Come Celebrate with us!
Our wedding cruise will depart on February 4, 2018 from Miami, FL on a 6 day Western Caribbean adventure! The wedding will take place on February 7th! Contact Isreal our Personal Carnival Planner to book your trip and to ask any questions about pricing, ameneties, or any question at all about the cruise. Isreal has a special booking for our wedding guests and if the price of your cruise lowers at any time after you book the lower price will be honored!
ROOM BLOCK NAME: "Brandon and Brandy Wed"
BOOKING GROUP CODE: 5KN3X4
Home Depot and Menards gift cards for our many projects around the house!
Brandon's niece and Nephew will be our Ring Bearer and Flower Girl. We couldn't ask for 2 more beautiful kids to share in our day. I can't wait to see their little personalities during the ceremony and the moments the photographer will no doubt capture!
My sister Alex is 8 years younger then me so as you can imagine I wasn't very interested in spending time with her when she was little, she was just cramping my teenage style of course.
The older we have gotten the closer we have become. I am so proud of her and her accomplishments in life. She has just recently moved to Colorado and accepted a position in a school system as their Ocupational Therapist.
I couldn't picture anyone else as my maid of honor but my baby sister! I promise not to throw any rocks at your head at our wedding ;)
Cory and I have always been more like brothers than cousins. His father and mine were twin brothers so I guess that makes sense. When Brandy first met Cory she even couldn't believe how much Cory and I not only look alike but act alike! We've been very close our entire lives, from snowmobiling and camping with our fathers when we were younger, boating and tubing down the Au Sable River, to now Brandy and I spending many weekends in Indiana with his wife and 4 beautiful daughters; Kaitlyn, Alyssa, Madison, and Olivia.
Cory works as an Organ Recovery Coordinator for Indiana Donor Network, meaning he flies around the country to recover organs for surgeries. Cory is the defintion of a family man and I hope to someday be as great of a father as he is. He and his wife Nicki are raising 4 amazing little girls that I've had the priviledge of watching grow up. And its just a bonus that Brandy and Cory's wife Nicki have grown to be close friends.
I'm honored for Cory to be my best man and witness me marry the love of my life. Brandy and I aspire to one day have as loving and caring of a family unit as Cory and Nicki have.
It's best that everyone fly in the day before we sail due to any flight delays etc. So please see the "booking Info" page for the room block we have set up in Miami for the night before and make your reservation. We have arranged for shuttles to take everyone to the Port on February 4th. The cruise will return to dock the morning of February 10th so you can have a flight that leaves anytime after 10 AM on the 10th if that is convenient. Please click the RSVP button on this event to confirm.
Because we are having a destination wedding and many of our friends and family won't be able to attend, Brandon and I have decided to change up the traditional wedding shower and have a "send off" party to celebrate! We can't wait to see everyone and let loose! This is an informal event; a time for us to eat, drink and mingle!
A weekend full of shenanigins has been set for the bachelor party. Brandon and his closest friends will be spending the weekend in Silver Lake one of Brandon's favorite places!
If you've received a Save the Date, you can click on the RSVP button above to let us know if you're planning to attend.
Originally designed as a stately Caribbean great house on the coconut tree speckled Petra Plantation, the Grand Old House was built by Boston businessman William Henry Law in 1908.
The foundations are constructed with locally grown ironwood, an exceptionally tough or hardest wood in the world, which helped the house survive the strongest of storms, including a multitude of norwesters, the no name hurricane back in 1932 and Hurricane Ivan in 2004.
When Mr. Law left the Cayman Islands, the Lambert family came to oversee his business and to live in the house. The Lamberts entertained frequently, hosting elegant parties. When the Lambert family left Cayman for Jamaica in 1925, the house remained in the care of Olive Hinds, the family housekeeper, for many years.
During its long history, the Grand Old House has been used as a Sunday school for local children, a hospital for soldiers wounded in World War II, a beauty parlor and a shelter for island residents during storms and hurricanes. Old-time residents even tell the story that a doctor once performed an operation on a dining room table.
In the 1950s, the house passed into the hands of retired U.S. Army Colonel Pirnie. It was in his time of ownership that Cayman’s first Rotary Club was chartered at the house in 1966. Grand Old House was then purchased by Bob and Jeanne Brenton and other partners, who turned it into a restaurant in 1969. At that time, South Sound Road was no more than a dirt track and the restaurant was lit by oil lamps.
Although there were not many tourists in those days, the restaurant became a favourite with residents. For several years in the late 1980’s and early 90’s, Grand Old House was managed by the late Friedman Paul Erhardt, a German who was better known on American television as Chef Tell. Currently, the Grand Old House is owned by a group of Caymanian entrepreneurs who have supported and maintained it in its original form with new additions such as the 5000 square foot, ocean front deck.
Today, Grand Old House remains one of the finest restaurants on Grand Cayman, with an award-winning wine list, impeccable service and sophisticated island charm.
Our Reception will also be held at The Grand Old House. There will be a lunch served as well as cocktails of course! A DJ will lead us in our first dance as a married couple. We can't wait to share this monumental moment with everyone. After we return to the ship after the wedding the fun won't stop, we would love for everyone to continue the celebration aboard!
My Dad......where to start? My Dad was my best friend and the best father anyone could ask for. He is the reason I love the outdoors so much. He took my brother & I camping and on a lot of fun vacations while growing up.
In February 2010, my Dad was diagnosed with leukemia. Within 6 months, my Dad lost his courageous and brave battle and sadly passed away. His absence left a void in my heart and life that can't be expressed enough. Knowing he will be watching down on both Brandy and I as we say "I do" gives me tremendous happiness.
My mom and Wayne have been married for just over 20 years and have gone through a lot together. My mother fought through breast cancer when I was in middle school and has been cancer free for 17 years. Both she and Wayne are very adventurous and always traveling, whether it be a cruise to the Caribbean or to their winter home in Florida.
When Wayne and My mom got married I gained 2 sisters; Lisa and Shelly.
Without either of them, my home that Brandy and I now share would have just been a dream. Their hard work and vision made it possible and I'm forever thankful.
My parents have been together 32 years and married 26 of those! They are a great example of true love and surviving anything life throws at them. An inspiration to Brandon and I. They have always had a way of letting my sister and I make our own mistakes and still be there to help us pick up the pieces. Even though we live far apart now, we are probably closer now than we ever were. Thanks Mom & Dad for all your love and support over the years! I love you.
Brandy has one younger sister Alexander who is her maid of honor. She is 24 years old and is an Occupational Therapist in Texas.
Brandon has 3 siblings; a brother Brett who lives with his Girlfriend Tammi in Saginaw. A step sister Lisa who also lives in the Saginaw area with her husband Tim and their 2 children Jaxson and Jade. Jaxson is our ring bearer <3. Brandon's other step sister Shelly also lives in the area and is planning her own wedding for October of this year!
My grandma has been a constant support in my life and I couldn't imagine life with out her. I couldn't have a family page without mention of her. She is always there for me even if I just need to talk. I love her with all my heart and I am so happy she is able to join us through our wedding adventure!
The proposal is a story in itself and is sure to be a great memory to tell our children.
Mackinac Island was the location I decided on. Our friends Justin and Kristina accompanied us since we often travel to Mackinac City and the island with them and I did not want Brandy to catch on.
I had mentioned I wanted to go to the highest point of the island to an old British fort, Fort Holmes. Well Brandy decided to drink a few mimosas with Kristina, knowing we had to pedal bicycles up to the fort.
The ride up to the fort was filled with laughter, but mostly Brandy yelling about how hard the climb was on the bicycles since she had just drank the mimosas. After a lot of yelling, we made it to the top.
The idea was for Kristina to take a photo of Brandy and I with Lake Huron behind us. After the photo was taken, I began to get down on one knee. Brandy didn't disappoint....she began yelling "What are you doing!" Well it finally clicked in her head that I was proposing. Needless to say, her reaction was priceless as she began apologizing for the attitude on the way there and continued to apologize throughout the rest of the day.
After experiencing that day, I know that our marriage will always keep me on my toes and make our relationship stronger and better as our life long journey together progresses.
Brandon and I first met in 2008 when he applied for a patrol officer position where I worked (Tittabawassee Twp Police), I was actually in another relationship so didn't pay much attention to him as I thought he was just another big headed cop applying for a job ;) Although he had his eye on me from the beginning, so he says.
Brandon has never been anything but a gentleman to me, and to everyone around him for that matter. I never really knew he even liked me and I may not have had an instant interest in him romantically, but I always admired him and his dedication to truly caring about people. And of course I always thought he was adorable ;)
When the relationship I was in ended, Brandon sent me the text message that changed our lives....it went something like "Hey I heard you might be single", uh huh.....he knew and was fishing for information and I knew it! From that day on I knew he was the one, he has done nothing but support me in my transitions both personally and professionally.
I truly know that Brandon is the one for me, I have never been the kind of girl that believed in fairy tales but Brandon changed that for me. He is my Prince Charming and the only regret I have is that I didn't meet him sooner so I could love him longer. I can't wait to be his wife!
I was born in Saginaw and also come from a small town, not as small as Brandy's though. I graduated from St. Charles and pursued a career in Criminal Justice at Delta College. I've been a police officer for 9 years and that is how I met Brandy.
From Day 1 I knew she was the one. Our personalities and traits go hand in hand with each other. Brandy is someone that I can tell anything to and she listens to me, whether its something good or bad. As hard as law enforcement can be, she is always there for me and that speaks volumes.
I'm looking so very forward to spending the rest of our lives together and starting a family. Brandy is perfect to me in every way and for that I'm extremely thankful that I found her.
I was born in Traverse City and grew up in a very small town just outside of Gaylord. So small I had a High School Graduating class of 7! I know, crazy! I attended NMU for a year after high school and then moved to Freeland and attended Delta College.
I received an associates Degree in Business Management at Delta and am currently finishing my Bachelors Degree at SVSU. I currently work for Tittabawassee Township and I love my job; mostly because that's how Brandon and I first met :) (More to come on that story!)
It may sound corny but in my spare time I enjoy doing anything that includes Brandon! I love our adventures together and can't wait to spend the rest of our lives creating lasting memories. Our wedding is a dream come true and will represent everything about us and our personalities, I can't wait to share our wedding adventure with our friends and family!!!
Our invitations had a slight error in the hashtag so we just want everyone to know that the hashtag to use for wedding events is #bcaymanfederspiel. We will of course remind everyone at the Send Off Party!

After much consideration and calling Brandon 3 times I pulled the trigger and put the deposit down on my wedding dress! Thank you to my Grandma and friend Kristina for putting up with my anxiety and indecisiveness all day.
We had an amazing experience at Lamour Bridal in Novi, the girls there are great and I look foward to working with them for my fittings <3
