Dr. Prigg and Mr. Cortese unite in matrimony October 15

Jennifer Noel Prigg, D.O., given in marriage by her father, became the bride of Jeffrey Joseph Cortese, both originally from Mount Clemens, MI, on October 15, 2005, at Eagle's Flight Park Overlook at Cumberland Cove in Crossville.

The 4:30 p.m. outdoor ceremony was officiated by Rev. Max Mayo, of Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church. In addition to the vows he read, the couple exchanged their own vows.

The bride is the daughter of David H. Prigg, D.O., and Sandra K. Prigg, of Fairfield Glade.

The groom is the son of Patricia Y. English and Darryl T. English of Manistique, MI.

The overlook was decorated with potted fall flowers and white toile with boughs of fall flowers. The seats faced south overlooking the scenery.

As they exchanged their vows, the couple stood beneath an arbor adorned with fall flowers and roses.

Musical selections for the ceremony were performed by two violinists and a flutist from Fairfield Glade who played a variety of classical pieces including “Trumpet Tune” by Purcell as the processional.

After the exchanging of rings, “Amazing Grace” was performed on bagpipe by a musician from Knoxville.

J.S. Bach's “Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring” was played for the recessional.

The bride wore a white, off-the-shoulder, long-sleeve gown made by her mother and grandmother. The gown was embroidered with floral prints along the front and ends of the sleeves by the groom's mother.

A rhinestone tiara and a veil created by the bride's grandmother completed her look.

Her bouquet consisted of roses, chrysanthemums, gerbera daisies, lilies, and other fall flowers and greenery.

Serving as maid of honor was the bride's sister, Erica L. Prigg, of Livingston. Bridesmaids were the bride's best friend, Sarah M. Gargiulo, of Brandon, FL, and the bride's sister-in-law, Cheryl L. Prigg, of Elmhurst, IL.

Karen Gargiulo, daughter to Sarah Gargiulo, was the flower girl.

Each of the attendants wore floor-length gowns, apple red in color, and carried bouquets similar to the bride's.

Serving as best man was the groom's brother, Scott D. Cortese, of Harrison Township, MI. Groomsmen were friends of the groom, David W. Comer, of Utica, MI, and Paul Boland, of Detroit, MI.

A reception followed the ceremony at Legend's, at Druid Hills Country Club in Fairfield Glade.
