CHELSEA & SCOTT // AN INTIMATE WINERY WEDDING AT AURORA CELLARS // LEELANAU WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

 

Imagine an intimate wedding in Italy.  A winery tucked among the hills and fields.  A day so warm the bride has to dip her feet in the water.  An uncomplicated ceremony.  Friends and family laughing, eating delicious small bites, drinking wine.  Dozens of adorable babies giggling and toddlers running around playing.  Tables simply set with lace runners, candles and red roses.  Tiramisu for dessert.  Golden light hitting the grape vines.

That was Chelsea and Scott's wedding.  Minus one small detail: the location.  Surprise, surprise we weren't in Italy last weekend, but the vibe was on point.  Cheers you two!  What a day!

FRITZ AND SHAHAR MARRIED IN DETROIT

The conservatory on Belle Isle is such a perfect spot for a small wedding.  Our dear friends, Fritz and Shahar, were married there last week.  We had such an incredible time documenting their day.  The ceremony was emotional and meaningful, we sipped on cocktails at Two James, and we finished the evening with an incredible meal at Ottava Via and homemade carrot cake.  Cheers to two amazing people - we love you!

 
 

KAREN & ROD // WEDDING PREVIEW // BAY HARBOR

Standing on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan photographing a small intimate wedding with just eight people in attendance (including myself and the officiant) is something pretty special.  It is a true privilege to capture such important memories, but there is a unique difference when you are witnessing such a private ceremony.  It is kind of hard to explain, but it somehow feels more casual and more significant at the same time.  Karen and Rod, it was a true pleasure meeting you and witnessing this moment.
