I don't think Michael and I have ever laughed as much on a wedding day as we did with Claire and Garrett. Their wedding weekend mantra was simply about having fun with their guests and truly enjoying the experience. They wanted to eat great food, drink great wine and whiskey, and spend as much time with their friends and family as possible. It was mission accomplished for these two awesome humans. Somehow the combination of completely boisterous and unbelievably elegant morphed into a truly beautiful day that left us grinning from ear to ear. As an example of this, Claire gave me explicit permission to share that the two of them let out a couple of farts during their evening portrait session which, in my opinion, resulted in some of the most magically genuine moments I have captured in a long time. Like I said - hysterical laughter all around. When you combine that energy with an amazing venue, phenomenal flowers, and the work of Rachel and her team to keep everything on point, Claire and Garrett's wedding really was over the top.
Coldest engagement session completed so far goes to Claire and Garrett! Despite an epic blizzard the day before, and brutal temperatures, we were still able to take photos around the wonderful Traverse City Commons and I'm so glad we did.
