Mike Ellis and Laura Vogel met while they were both learning to play hockey as students at the Breakfast Club, a Suburban Hockey Schools program for adults wishing to improve at the sport. The two found more than just a love for hockey while skating during those early morning classes; they fell in love at the same time. On June 28, 2012, the two tied the knot on the sheet of ice where they met at Suburban Ice Farmington Hills. With their friends and teammates looking on, Suburban Sports Group president and lead instructor Lyle Phair presided over their wedding, and the pair made things official…while wearing their skates. Here is our photo gallery from the unique wedding, with more coverage to come (photos by Chris Fleck/Phleck Photos for MiHockeyNow.com).
