John & Meghan's Wedding Day!

Meghan and John have been together since high school and seeing how loved these two were by their families and how well both families blended together was so beautiful. It was like one big family! 

Moments before the ceremony John and Meghan prayed together (making sure not to see each other before the ceremony). His mom was so sweet and teary eyed before, during, and after the ceremony. John's uncle lead the ceremony. After their I do's they, along with their bridal party, headed to downtown Jackson in a trolley bus. The toasts before dinner were hilarious, the dinner fantastic, and the dancing incredible! The bride did such a beautiful job of completely transforming the space (Lumen Christi High School. Where they met!) into a beautiful banquet hall! Meghan added so many beautiful touches to their day, including their bouquets! Their night was so much fun! EVERYONE danced (even grandpa got up and danced with the bride) into the night and the two took off together through sparkling lights to their honeymoon! 

Congratulations Meghan and John! You are a kind and fun couple and it was such an honor to be a part of your day! 

Congratulations John & Meghan!

Sarah & Patrick's Vintage Lake House Wedding

Sarah and Patrick's day was absolutely stunning, but what you must know about these two, is that whatever they do they do whole heartedly! Sarah in my book wins bride of the year for making her own wedding cake (blueberry and thyme cake with lemon curd filling, and butter cream frosting) and sewing dresses for their daughter and all the little flower girls. Together they even home brewed their own pale ale for their guests! This all being done for their Michigan wedding while living in New York! 

These two have been in love for quite some time and as the ceremony began you could already tell how much the two families had already become one.  The girls carried bouquets filled with the lovely scent of sage and the flower girls carried baskets with rosemary and lavender. The weather was perfect and everything looked, felt, and even smelled beautiful!

Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails (created by the bride & groom), hors d'oeuvres, and a family style dinner catered by Katherine's Catering. Everyone enjoyed dancing while the sun set over the lake and the celebration concluded with a large group photo and bouquet toss! It was an absolute pleasure getting to spend the day with this couple and their kind, generous, and sincerely cool family and friends. 

 

Congratulations to you Sarah and Patrick! You two are amazingly talented and you and your family are such beautiful people inside and out!

A huge thank you to Jennifer Buehrer and her team for their incredible coordinating of the ceremony at the Hillsdale Arboretum and complete set up of the lake house reception. You all made the vision come alive!  And a special thanks to my wonderful friend and assistant Erica McIntosh for the beautiful photos you take. And to Jennifer Buehrer again for the untouched reception and cocktail hour shots you were able to sneak in before the party started! You are both so amazing to work with! We make a great team!

Aaron & Angie's Beautiful Backyard Wedding

Aaron and Angie's wedding was so incredibly fun and gorgeous! They spent months preparing their new home for their big day and they did such an amazing job!  There are so many reasons why I absolutely loved their wedding! There was so much laughter, so many awesome details, and everyone had such a great time!

These two truly enjoy each other and I absolutely loved taking pictures for them! They were super excited about collaborating with me to create pictures that fit their personality and we had so many great spots to photograph them in! Aaron is a Lieutenant for the fire department and we were so fortunate to be able to use one of the ladder trucks and one of the homes they recently extinguished. A huge thank you to the Fire Department for accompanying us at burn site! And a super huge thank you to my assistant Jen who took such gorgeous photos and danced the rest of the night with me!

Chris & Shannon's Family Church Wedding

Congratulations to this beautiful new married couple! 

Chris and Shannon's day was celebrated with family and the closest of friends at the bride's home church. Her mom and sisters helped her get ready as she prepared to see Chris for their "First Look".

Their "First Look" was so adorable! Shannon tip toed from behind and could not stop giggling!

Mom was all choked up in her moment with Shannon before her dad walked her down the aisle. Her sister and close family friend played a beautiful instrumental rendition of "Tale As Old As Time" from Shannon's favorite disney movie "Beauty and the Beast". 

Following the ceremony they held a dinner where friends and family together prayed a special blessing on the couple. Shannon and Chris spent time greeting everyone there while a game of He Said She Said was played and everyone took turns snuggling their sweet little baby girl. Dinner was incredible and great friends of theirs set up a spectacular photo-booth with a green screen! 

After dinner we had time for more pictures of the bride and groom!  And although it was pouring rain outside, the beautiful steel doors we had hoped to use were thankfully under a covered porch! Here are just a few favorites of the two of them! 

So happy for you Chris and Shannon! It was an honor to be a part of your day! Your families are so sweet and you have such a precious little girl! God bless you both as you begin this beautiful journey as newlyweds! 

And a special thanks to Ryan for helping out with lighting and to my wonderful assistant Erin! You are amazing!
