Dow Diamond - Midland, MI

Whitney & Jessica created a beautiful winter wonderland backdrop for their wedding celebration.  It may have been chilly and a little blustery outside, but the fireplaces and everyone's' hearts were warm on the inside making it a beautiful day for two beautiful brides.    Love, joy and happiness filled their wedding celebration, and it was wonderful to see their family and so many friends gathered to share their special day with them.    As you scroll through some of my favorite images, I'm sure you will notice all the smiles and even a few happy tears; it's easy to see how much these two love each other and how everyone close to them has embraced their love as well.  There were so many genuine, joy filled moments throughout the day, but I especially loved the very heartfelt vows that shared with each other during their ceremony.

Whitney & Jessica, it was an absolute honor to capture your wedding day memories and we hope you enjoy reliving your incredible day with a few the many, many images we captured.  We wish you all the best as you embark on this journey of life together and create your own happily ever after.

Little Flower Barn, Lake Isabella, Michigan

AJ & Riley's wedding day was just incredible from the beginning to the end and through the sunshine and the rain.   It was full of amazing details that were near and dear to their hearts including their horses and their dog, Grace.  Then there was AJ's vintage pickup truck that Riley drove up in before walking down the aisle...every time I look at the pictures of her in the truck I will always smile remembering her reeving up the engine and seeing the smiles on the faces of the groom and the guests.   After the wedding, like true dairy farmers an ice cream social was enjoyed by their guests before the the reception.   AJ & Riley had an abundance of friends and family that came to celebrate with them...and celebrate they did.  Fritz from Revolution Entertainment did an amazing job playing tunes that the crowd loved and Riley even got 97% of her guests to make a big circle around the whole venue for the "Chicken Dance."   They truly made their day unique and special in so many ways, but most importantly it was a beautiful celebration of their love and commitement to each other.  It's a day I'm sure they and their guests will always look back on with fond memories. 

AJ & Riley it was truly an honor to capture this special moment in your lives.   Thank you so much for entrusting us with your wedding day memories.  We hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through a few of our favorite images highlighting your day and we wish you both the very best as you begin this season of life as husband and wife.

Ithaca, MI

Logan & Gabby's beautiful fall wedding in the pines was full of friends, family and festivity; yet complete with intimate moments especially for the two of them.   They were both so relaxed throughout the day and the joy they felt about marrying each other was evident by the look on their faces.  As you scroll through a few of my favorites from their wedding day you'll notice the love and kindness they share with each other and with everyone around them.  It filled their day from beginning to end and I truly felt blessed to capture it in these images.   Their wedding day could not have been more perfect, from the venue, to the support of friends and family to the beautiful weather Mother-Nature delivered; I'm sure it's everything they dreamed it would be and more!  

Logan & Gabby, I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through these images for years to come.  Enjoy this season in life as newlyweds and may you always look back on it with the fondest of memories.

October 3, 2020

Ludington, Michigan

Tyler and Brooke’s intimate Ludington beach wedding was an incredible celebration of their love for one another.  When they couldn’t get married at their original venue because of the pandemic restrictions, they decided they definitely didn’t want to put off getting married even if the big celebration with friends and family had to wait.   It may have been a chilly and drizzly October day, but it sure didn’t put a damper on the joy and love they showed for one another and the setting was just as beautiful as their love.  After the ceremony when the drizzle turned to down pour we made the best of it and captured some unique wedding memories out on the pier.

Tyler and Brooke, I was so happy to capture your wedding day memories for you.   I hope you truly enjoy this time as newlyweds as you look forward to October 2, 2021 to celebrate your one year anniversary in the biggest way with all your family and friends present.  I certainly wish you both the very best in this new season in life as husband and wife.

Adam & Lacie were just recently engaged and were planning a February 2021 wedding, however when Lacie's Dad was diagnosed with cancer they decided to move their wedding date to February 2020 and planned their celebration of their love in just two short weeks.  Their day could not have been more perfect, from the family and close friends who came together for this special occasion on short notice, to the incredible February day Mother Nature provided.  It was certainly a privilege to capture this special and intimate occasion for them.

Adam and Lacie, you launched right into married life without question that it was the right thing to do and with so much grace.  If you handle all of life's challenges with as much thoughtfulness as you did in planning your wedding, you're sure to have a long and happy marriage.  I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day as you scroll through a few of my favorite images.  I wish you both the very best as you begin this new season in life as husband and wife!

December 14, 2019

Alma, Michigan

What dreams are made of is the best way to describe Logan and Morgan's wedding day.  These two did an incredible job planning their big day filled with lots cozy winter details.  The color palette of dusty pink and navy mixed with lots of greenery made for a quintessential yet non-traditional December wedding and all the elements came together beautifully.  Lots of special moments were planned throughout their day, from their first look at the pines, to sharing letters not only with each other but also their parents.  Then there was Morgan's first look with her dad, writing and sharing their own vows and roasting a s'more in lieu of cutting a cake.   As you scroll through their photos and you take in glimpse of all these special aspects of their day that you also notice the love, happiness and joy in the faces of Logan and Morgan and all the friends and family that were a witness of their celebration of love and commitment to one another. 

Logan and Morgan, it was certainly a special treat to not only be the Mother of the Groom, but to also capture (with the help of my good friend, Marvin Hall) these special memories for you.  It has been a pleasure to watch your relationship blossom and mature over these past two years.  Your deep connection is evdident in so many facets of your lives and I look forward to watching your relationship continue to develop as husband and wife.   I certainly hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through these images for many years to come.  Enjoy this season in life as newlyweds and may you always look back on it with the fondest of memories.

Thomas and Megan's wedding day was stunning from beginning to end.  Mother Nature tried to throw us a curve ball by adding a  splash of winter into their fall wedding day, but Megan was laid back and easy going and it never seemed to phase her a bit...plus she and the rest of the bridal party get kudos for tolerating the extra chilly temps for outdoor portraits.   It's always special to watch families come together to celebrate with the bride and groom as they commit their lives to one another and Thomas and Megan's day was no exception.   Their day was filled with loving kindness from beginning to end with lots of laughs sandwiched inbetween, which is the perfect recipe for happiness.

Thomas and Megan, I hope you thoroughly enjoy this sampling of memories from your wedding day!   These are memories that you can treasure for lifetime and that your children and grandchildren can cherish for theirs.  Thomas and Megan, make sure you relish in this new season in life as newlyweds and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together

October 19, 2019

Petoskey, Michigan

WOW!  It was truly an incredible day in northern Michigan and it helped make Corey and Allie's wedding day picture perfect from beginning to end.   Every single wedding day is a beautiful day in my book, but when Mother Nature cooperates so fully, it's definitely a little extra special.    The color pallete of teal and navy with splashes of raspberry and orange was perfect with the fall color that was beginning to pop and equally as stunning against the backdrop of the Little Traverse Bay.    Corey and Allie's wedding day was just as sweet as they are.   God was the center of their day, just as I am sure it will be the center of their marriage.  It was truly a blessing to be a witness to the love and devotion that they have to each other and a God centered life and their commitment to be encouragers to each other.   As you browse through their wedding day memories, you can't help but notice the tender love they have for each other and Corey's uncanny ability to make Allie smile and laugh.   It's a beautiful connection when you can love deeply and thoroughly enjoy one another's company, whether it's over a third cup of coffee or a run in the woods.  Stay focused on that joy and simple pleasures in your lives together and always treasure what you share.

Corey & Allie, I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through these images.  You have some beautiful memories here that will last a lifetime and beyond.  You made it a priority to have a solid footing in your marriage, don't forget to work just as vigilantly as you begin to build the foundation as a family.  Enjoy this time together as newlyweds and may you always look back at this season in life with fond memories.

Bucks Run Golf Club - Mt. Pleasant, Michigan

Chase & Erin's wedding day was a beautiful celebration of their love.   Erin did an incredible job planning all the details for the occasion and the color pallet of navy, blush and rose gold definitely set the tone for a romantic and dreamy wedding day.  The day was a blustery (alright downright WINDY) and chilly for an outdoor wedding and then there was a power outage at the venue and few other minor hiccups along the way that are inevitably a part of every wedding day. However, Chase and Erin kept their eyes on the prize (each other) and didn't let those minor little things take away from the big picture that it was their WEDDING DAY!  They were both excited for this day; the day they would begin building their future together as husband and wife and they didn't let anything take away from that joy.  As you scroll through their wedding day photos you can clearly see the extraordinary love they have for each other.  You can see it in the smiles on their faces and with the intensity that they gaze at one another.  

Chase and Erin, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day and for entrusting me to capture such a special time in your life.  It has truly been a pleasure to get to know as you planned for your big day.   Cherish this time you have as newlyweds and I hope enjoy looking back at it with fond memories.  I wish you all the best as you begin this new season in life as Mr. & Mrs. Roberts.

Saint Louis, Michigan

It was a perfect October day for Brock and Jessica's fall themed wedding.   Their celebration was filled with beautiful moments from beginning to end.  Jessica radiated joy throughout the day with her fun loving spirit, and Brock clearly adores Jessica with all his heart.   One thing, I especially loved about their wedding was Jessica's brother, Lane, was her "Man of Honor" and it was a privilege to witness the evidence of their close relationship throughout the day in lots of special moments.  Lane never missed beat on his duties when it was time to fluff the train or hold Jessica's bouquet.  As you are scrolling through their wedding day memories take note of those wonderful moments and you will surely also notice the happiness that was evident throughout the entire day...not only from the bride and groom, but among all their friends and family as well. 

Brock and Jessica, it was an honor to witness and photograph your celebration of your love for each other and to capture your special memories.  I hope you enjoy reliving these moments each time you look through the images from your wedding day.  I certainly wish you all the best as you begin this new season in your life as husband and wife.

Trinity Lutheran Church ~ Conklin, Michigan 

The Harris Building ~ Grand Rapids, Michigan

 

Cody and Nicole had the Christmas wedding of their dreams at the historic church Nicole attended while growing up.  This was made extra special because the pastor officiating their wedding had also married her parents and Cody and Nicole's wedding marked his 100th wedding!  Everything about the day was absolutely stunning from the bride's wedding dress, to the real Christmas tree in the church sanctuary, to the lovely holiday florals.  The only missing detail from the picture perfect Christmas wedding was the snow, but you can't sweat details you have no control over and the bride certainly didn't let it dampen the spirits of the day.  Most important was the excitement in the air as Cody and Nicole prepared their hearts to marry one another.   As you stroll through some of my favorite of images from their special day you'll undoubtedly notice their anticipation and joy.  It's not every day you get to marry your best friend and these two enjoyed every minute of it.

Cody & Nicole, it was such an honor to photograph your wedding day and to capture your special memories.  I hope you enjoy reliving these moments each time you look through the images from your incredible day.  I wish you all the best as you begin this new season in your life as husband and wife as the best is truly yet to come.

Doig Chapel & Conference Center - Masonic Pathways

Alma, Michigan

Vinnie & Kelsey's wedding day was a beautiful celebration of their love.   It may have been a drizzly fall day, but it certainly did not dampen any spirits on this special occasion.   As you'll see as you scroll through some of my favorite images, the day was thoroughly enjoyed by the bride and groom and their guests.  Kelsey is a beautifully expressive bride who absolutely radiated the joy of her wedding day.  They had an elegant fall themed wedding with a twist of rustic mixed in.  The fall theme carried over to wedding guest treats as well, including caramel apples from Uncle John's Cider Mill (personal favorite) and pumpkin, apple & pecan pies from the Hearthstone Oven.  It truly was an amazing day. 

Vinnie & Kelsey, it was such an honor to photograph your wedding day and to capture your special memories.  I hope you enjoy reliving these moments each time you look through the images from your incredible day.  I certainly wish you all the best as you begin this new season in your life as husband and wife.

The H - Midland, Michigan

Matthew and Denna had a brisk but beautiful fall day for their wedding at The H in Midland.  We've had several days of wet, dreary weather in Mid-Michigan, but Mother Nature was certainly cooperative for their special day.  The wedding had an elegant black and wedding theme with splashes of silver and everything came together perfectly.  You could feel the love of the family and friends that surrounded them on their wedding day.  It always amazes me that you can actually feel how special that is even as an outsider looking in.  It's such a privilege to capture these beautiful moments in time and my hope is that each time a couple browses through their wedding day images that they will remember not only that deep love they have for each other, but also of the love of others that are also so dear.

Matthew and Denna, it was a pleasure to photograph your wedding day!  Thank you so much for entrusting me with your memories.  Enjoy the little stroll down memory lane as you relive your incredible day through these images.  I wish you all the best as you begin your new adventure as husband and wife!

August 25, 2018 - Charlevoix, Michigan

Rain or shine, Northern Michigan never disappoints with it's beauty.  It was drizzly much of the day leading up to the time of Colton & Kalyssa's ceremony it was successfully held under the willow tree at Dunmaglas Golf Club in Charlevoix, Michigan and in between drizzles and showers we successfully captured some beautiful photographs for them to cherish for years to come.    The vintage themed reception, complete with antique dishes and fish fry was a huge success.  Colton & Kalyssa are expecting a baby in January and one of the highlights from the day was their gender reveal grand entrance to the reception.  The looks on their faces when they found out they are having a baby boy are priceless.  It was a double celebration of love for friends and family to enjoy with the couple.

Colton & Kalyssa, thank you for entrusting me with your wedding memories.  I'm so excited to share your images with you so you can relive your special day.  I thoroughly enjoyed capturing the love you have for each other and for your sweet baby boy.  I wish you all the best as you begin this new season in life as husband and wife and as you add to your little family in a few short months.

August 11, 2018 - Caro, Michigan

Michael and Kendra had a perfect summer day for a wedding.  Sage green and navy adorned their wedding in Michigan's thumb and splashes of white and gold were perfect accents.  The girls began their day at an incredible venue called the Vacation House in Caro  while the guys were at the family farm.  Their lovely wedding was held at Saint Christopher Parish in Caro followed by a reception celebrating their love back at the farm. 

The bride and groom met on the campus of Michigan State University while they were both students there and it's the place where their love story got it roots.   It was very fitting that they celebrated this this new chapter of life as husband and wife at the family farm where they will make their home and build a life together.  

Michael and Kendra, my wish for you as you begin this new season in life is that your love will blossom into something even more incredible than either one of you could ever imagine.  Kendra you have the most beautiful, heartfelt expressions in so many of these images and Michael is holding on to you like he's never letting go; they tell the story of your love for each other and the joy in your hearts incredibly well.   Enjoy the stroll through your wedding day memories while you relive all the wonderful moments from your special day.
