This picture was taken on September 19, 2015 on the shore of Teal Lake in Negaunee, Michigan (Upper Peninsula). My daughter’s wedding included this 1930 Woodie Wagon, a 1928 Roadster, a 1930 Sedan and a 1931 Slant window. Bride Kim (Gischia) and Groom (Paul Redding) enjoyed the sunny fall weather and the “A-OOOGAH” parade afterwards. Cars were driven by members of the Superior A’s, Ishpeming, Mi.

1929 Mail Truck owned by Glorrian and Leroy Nau of Kenmore, Washington was used in our daughter's wedding. Each one of their grandchildren have used one of her Model As in their wedding. Our son used the Roadster, her other grandsons used the Roadster and the Coupe. When it came time for our daughter Maryke to select a Model A from her Grandmother, hands down and emphatically she picked the Mail Truck!

Maryke grew up playing in the back of it and didn't bat an eye about it being used in her wedding. It held the wedding gifts during the ceremony and reception, took a place of honor in pictures, and then we unloaded it and her father Tim drove her and her new husband away in it.

I have been a member of MAFCA for quite a few years, and I have been driving our 30 Tudor on tours ever since I got my permit. My husband recently joined the club and is currently restoring a 29 AA tow truck, while I am working on a 30 Tudor. We both enjoy dressing in era fashions at Model A functions and saw our wedding as a prime opportunity to share with our friends and family our favorite hobby.  The wedding picture was taken by a friend, Gina Hayzlette on May 13th 2012, in Portland, OR.

This is one of our daughter's bridal photos with our 1928 Tudor Sedan. We've had the car for 7-8 years now and enjoy it a great deal.

This picture is from my best friend Nico Bredenoord in Holland. His daughter got married this summer in a 1931 S/W Cabriolet formerly owned by me. The weather was perfect on this special day in this special car.

This picture is of my 1931 Deluxe Coupe at our wedding on June 26, 1993. Our wedding was in Sistine's hometown of Durango, Colorado. It was truly a surprise to us after the wedding rehearsal to walk out of the church and see the car that dad and I restored over a five year period! Sistine & I rode in the rumble seat as dad drove us to the rehearsal dinner. The next day, the Coupe was again waiting for us after the ceremony. After Sistine and I settled in our home in Tucson, we went to Raton and hauled the Coupe back with us. It now dons an original 1931 Arizona license plate.

Our daughter, Jill Linden married Greg Sullivan on May 21, 2005. Thanks to our friends, Dick O'Brien and Wayne Champagne, not one, but two Woodie Wagons provided the transportation to the church and reception. The Woodies and the wedding party made for a beautiful site while photos were taken at the picturesque Grist Mill at the Historic Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA.

The top picture shows Jill and Greg enjoying a quick break before leaving the church and the bottom photo shows the kids, Ring bearer Taylor Sullivan, who thought the ride in the "bumpity" car was great fun, and Flower Girls Jordan Linden and Haighley Sullivan.

Attached is a photo of my 1931 Town Sedan showing my wife Samantha, me and my grandfather, longtime MAFCA member G Ballard Simmons Jr. on our wedding day. We originally planned to be taken away in his 1931 Roadster but later decided it would be too tough for my new bride to climb into the rumble seat. The Town Sedan turned out to be a better choice anyway, as the temperature that night in early April of 2005 was still on the chilly side.

This Model A also has a special place in our family as it has been in the family since 1963. I wasn't the first to learn to drive in this car however when my grandfather taught me how to drive at the age of 14 years old I was the last to drive it as that was the last day our beloved family car ran (I overheated it and cracked the block) until 15 years later when it was partially restored in time for the wedding. My grandfather passed away this past December but passed his Model A on to me at a very emotional Thanksgiving 2006. We will always cherish the memories our family has shared in this and other Model As and will continue to share the tradition with the generations to come.

This is a picture of my daughter Rachel, and her new husband Jason Kemper. They were married on July 15th 2006. They wanted to ride in a Model A from the church to the reception. My 1929 Special Coupe has no rumble seat so I chose to drive them in my dad Delbert Riddle's A400 Convertible Sedan. Dad is also a MAFCA member. The newlyweds got lots of whistles, hoops and horn honks on that ride. Those Model A's are always a big hit.

Attached is a picture of my niece Jayme, and her new husband Joel Grezbik. Jayme and Joel were married on April 8, 2006 at Callaway Gardens, Georgia. The Model A, which has been in the family since the mid forties, is a 1931 Standard Coupe. All three of my brother Jim's children have used the Coupe in their weddings. My nephews have made it a tradition to crank start the Coupe for the drive to the reception. They haven't failed yet

[Image]
In the early forties, before my family had a car, my parents would borrow the Coupe from the original owner, a neighbor in Newark, Ohio. My father bought the Coupe upon the neighbor's death and transferred it to my Grandfather. Grandpa drove it for almost 20 years in Hillsboro, Ohio. When Grandpa died, ownership transferred to me. The coupe has passed back and forth over the years but will always remain a family treasure.
