Johnathan Muller & Monika Achtziger were married Aug. 15 in a beautiful ceremony on a Stony Brook beach by a justice of the peace. The day started with an overcast sky, but the sun shone just before the ceremony began. Best man Brian Grattan and maid of honor Malinda Bolton were witnesses to this special moment. Sheila Muller (mother of the groom), Carol and Ron Achtziger (the bride’s parents), brother Ronnie, grandmother Margaret and other family members enjoyed the special ambiance of the occasion.
