FLORENCE, Wis. — Hannah Mary Malone and Lindsay Ray Groeneveld were united in marriage on Aug. 11, 2018, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the shore of Fischer Lake behind Maxsell’s Restaurant and Suites in Florence, with the bride’s brother, Maxwell Malone of Kansas, officiating.

Hannah is the daughter of Nick and Celeste Malone of Iron Mountain. She is the granddaughter of John and Mary Calo of Kingsford and Paul and Ele Malone of Iron Mountain. Lindsay is the son of Raphael and Rena Ambrosia of Aurora, Wis. and the late William Groeneveld.

The maid of honor was the bride’s best friend, Rachel Klitzke of Detroit, and the groom’s attendant of honor was his sister, Rachel Christensen of Quinnesec. The bridal party also included the bride’s sister Molly Malone and friends, Taylor Rosenthal, Joshua March and Travis Paquin.

The bride wore a beautiful champagne Maggie Sottero bridal gown found in a Marquette consignment shop. Hannah’s hair, expertly styled by friend Kortnee Fornetti of the Good Earth Salon, was adorned with beads and flowers. Hannah’s bouquet consisted of white roses, blush pink dahlias, pink scabiosa, blue mountain thistle, white astilbe, baby’s breath and eucalyptus, tied with ivory satin ribbon.

Hannah’s bridesmaids donned dusty rose full-length dresses in differing styles and carried bouquets of baby’s breath.

A reception for 165 family and friends followed at the Encore Ballroom in Florence, which Shelly Claycomb and crew of Final Touches Design of Gladstone, transformed into a magical setting.

Stunning photos were taken by Libby March of Buffalo, N.Y., and gorgeous flowers provided by Linnea and Kristine’s of Iron Mountain. Rather than a traditional wedding cake, the bridal couple decided on seven vegan specialty cakes made by Melissa, owner of Dulce Nulla Gourmet Desserts, and Thea Fradette of Iron Mountain. Entertainment was provided by Don Grailer, friend of the bridal couple.

The bride is a 2018 graduate of Northern Michigan University with a degree in clinical laboratory sciences / microbiology. She is employed with the Washington State Department of Health as a microbiologist for their emergency response team in their biowatch and bioterrorism units.

The groom, a 2003 graduate of Florence High School, is employed as a shop technician with CITC Special Effects in Everett, Wash.

The bride and groom have made their home in Seattle.
