MARYSSA + COLIN // LATE SEPTEMBER WEDDING AT STARRY NIGHT BARN // SUTTONS BAY, MICHIGAN

 

What a day. As the weather has shifted decidedly towards Fall, those crisp sunny days are some of my absolute favorites and that’s exactly what Colin and Maryssa got on their wedding day. The subtle change in tree color, the quality of light changing earlier in the evening, the warmth standing in the sun, but the chill in the shadows. All of these elements coming together set the stage for this wedding. Maryssa and Colin put so much thought into each detail from handmade vow booklets, to handmade pie, and it showed. Not only in those details, but in the words that were spoken last Saturday. We witnessed lots of watery eyes during the ceremony. Lots of laughter playing lawn games, and listening to toasts. And of course the pure joy and love between M&C. What a great celebration - it was such a privilege to be a part of! #weirbettertogether

JACQUELYN & DOUGLAS // TRAVERSE CITY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // OLD MISSION PENINSULA & THE CATHEDRAL BARN

 

Jacquelyn & Doug.  Oh where to start.  We truly adore these two.  From my first meeting with Jacquelyn and her parents, to photographing their engagement session in California, to the planning phone calls, and then of course their wedding - the entire process has been fun because these two are just wonderful.  We've had so many laughs with them.  It's not everyday that one of the bride's main requests is as follows: "Jacquelyn and her friends with their pizza friendship necklace.  This is a photo we take at each person's wedding and it's imperative to capture".  And then we joked about her use of the word imperative multiple times during the week leading up to the wedding.  Pizza-themed necklace aside, Jacquelyn and Doug placed a high priority on food and wine in their wedding plans.  It is a huge part of how their relationship has developed and grown, including where they have lived and their plans for the future.  Capturing that aspect of their wedding day was a real treat - literally.  The Boathouse did a fabulous job.  This day was full.  This day was full of love.  Full of food.  Full of wine.  Full of family.  Full of friends.  Full of the good stuff.
