Susan & Bill Bielucke

Laughter and Love
Susan and Bill met at Millersville University during their freshman orientation. Susan recalls Bill being able to make a whole room laugh. Bill had a magnetism that drew people him. Susan was charmed by Bill’s lively and upbeat attitude. To this day, he can have Susan rolling on the floor in laughter over the dumbest jokes and stories. Meanwhile, Susan’s smarts and wit was a big seller for Bill. For him, Susan was a big nerd in all the best ways.
Susan and Bill were in the same friend group and became quite close. By Sophomore year they were together officially.
Bill proposed on the annual family vacation in Ocean City, NJ. Every year as a couple they would get a picture taken in the photo booth at Jilly’s Arcade. In 2018, in the midst of their photo booth picture, Bill popped the question. This epic life event is well documented in that picture!
A wedding at Stroudsmoor Country Inn
Susan and Bill loved everything about Stroudsmoor. It was their first venue to tour in person, and their guide warned them that we were going to fall in love. She was right, and they booked the same day! They particularly loved Woodsgate. The woodland chapel definitely spoke to their aesthetic. The wilderness backdrop, a wedding set among the trees. Susan loved the rustic feel of the converted barn for cocktail hour and the reception. The whole venue felt like who they were as a couple, and made it that much easier to choose Stroudsmoor for their wedding.
Planning a wedding in the year 2020 was no easy task, but Stroudsmoor was able to facilitate the event and make Susan and Bill’s wedding day a success. An indoor reception was not in the cards due to COVID-19, but Stroudsmoor was able to pull everything together beautifully with the woodland chapel, SCI Pavilion attached to Woodsgate, and a spacious tent. The leaves were changing, and weather could not have been more perfect.
Susan had some doubts, but it all worked and came together quite beautifully with the décor and setting. The staff was amazing and took care of everything they could have possibly needed.
A truly magical day. Susan and Bill couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Favorite food and favorite moments
The guests are still talking about the sheer amount of appetizers during cocktail hour and how delicious they were. All of the food was excellent but Bill and Susan’s favorite was the stuffed pork.
Susan’s favorite moment was dancing the night away in the Pavilion. Their band Sunshine Symphony was amazing. It was a great feeling to get through the day and just be able to celebrate with friends and family.
