Event Theme

The 4th of July is one of our favorite holidays. Hanging out with friends and family on a lake, with great food and fireworks. What could be better?

Dress Code

We want to have a fancy wedding. We also want a backyard BBQ. And we want you to have fun. If you feel like you want to wear it, wear it!

Feel free to bring a bathing suit if you'd like.

Ladies, you'll be walking on grass so watch out for high heels that will stick in the grass.

Directions

The Schimpkes live on Grey Woods Lane. Take I-75 to Baldwin Road. Head South on Baldwin Road and take a right on Old Baldwin Road. It loops around to Grey Woods Lane.
