Former Islanders Michael Craig Davis and Christie Anne Utz, of Springfield, Virginia, had a beautiful wedding June 13 in the Niagara University Chapel. The Rev. O' Malley officiated. His Mass was thoughtful and enjoyable. He went out of his way to make it personal by telling the congregation why the bride and groom were so special to each other, using their own words. The bride was gorgeous in her exquisitely appointed dress and the groom was equally splendid. The two young people professed their vows poised on the altar absolutely sure of themselves and each other. The wedding was followed by dinner, drinking and dancing at the Beaver Island Casino. It was a beautiful evening in a great venue with lovely views. Friends and family happily celebrated the newly united husband and wife.
Christie, the daughter of Maureen and Robert Utz, is the nurse manager of Falls Church Pediatrics. Michael, the son of Craig and Sheila Davis, is a digital forensic examiner for the U.S. Department of Justice. They have made themselves a home in Virginia, for now, but their families are ever hopeful that these bright lights will find their way back to Western New York.
