rainy day wedding

LISA & GREG // A SUMMER WEDDING AT SONSHINE BARN IN GAYLORD MICHIGAN

 

It might rain on your wedding day, and if it does, I hope that you react with as much grace as Lisa and Greg did. Rain is not what anyone plans or hopes for, but it’s a lot like life. Things are thrown at you and you figure out how to make magical things happen anyway. You make the best of it - and let me tell you - Lisa and Greg truly made the best of it. I also don’t want the lasting memories of this day to be about the weather. Because this day was about SO MUCH MORE than the weather. The day was about this amazing couple. Their commitment to each other, and their friends and family who all gathered together in a beautiful barn to celebrate them. After the storm had passed, and they were officially married, they walked together into the fields on this beautiful property and took it all in. It was their best day ever. And I know for sure because at the end of the night after toasts and dancing and laughing, Lisa told me that it was. Cheers you guys!

MARGARET & KEVIN // ANN ARBOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY // PREVIEW

A little rain can't stop true love and I'm glad that's true because this year we have had a lot of it. Even with rain, Margaret and Kevin's wedding day was absolutely gorgeous.  UMMA was gracious enough to let us take photos inside and the Michigan League never disappoints.  We are so happy to have been a part of this celebration.  Cheers to Margaret & Kevin!
