REBECCA & JON // SOJOURN LAKESIDE RESORT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY // GAYLORD, MI

 

At the beginning of the day Jon's mom gave Becky a mercury dime from 1944 to put in her shoe.  The dime had belonged to Jon's grandfather.  Later during the reception, Jon's parents told them that September 16th was actually the same day that his grandparents were married in 1944, which they hadn't realized before!  I just loved this sweet element of their day.  These little things that make everyone's wedding day truly unique.  AND, who would have guessed that we'd have a stretch of 80 degree weather in September?!  I certainly hadn't expected it, but it turned out beautifully.  Sojourn is one of those magical places with an up north - woodsy - summer camp - vibe that can still be as elegant or as rustic as you choose.  It's a stunning location and a perfect place to spend one of the last warm weekends of the year.  Cheers to Becky & Jon!

MARIBETH & JOSH // ANN ARBOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // MICHIGAN STADIUM

Michael and I met at the University of Michigan.  We went to school together there and spent the first few years of our relationship together in Ann Arbor.  I went to high school across the street from the stadium.  My mom and uncle were both athletes at U of M and watching Michigan football on Saturdays has been a family tradition since I can remember.  That all sounds super sappy, but let me just tell you that Michael and I geeked out a little bit as we walked onto the field at The Big House for Maribeth and Josh's wedding.  These two have been together for over 10 years, Josh is a former U of M football player, and Maribeth's parents have had season tickets for so long that she has only missed 4 home games since the age of two.  So to say they are fans is probably a giant understatement.  Don't get me wrong, we are more than happy to photograph the weddings of fans from other schools (in fact we have actually documented a wedding where Sparty walked the groom down the aisle!), but I must say, this wedding was particularly special for us.  GO BLUE!

PUBLISHED IN MYNORTH WEDDING MAGAZINE 2016 // JULIE & DANI

Happy New Year!  We took a couple weeks off around the holidays and New Years which was absolutely fantastic.  We traveled to Santa Fe and Boulder so we have some fun photos to share from our trip in the coming weeks as well.  But I am so excited to share the 2016 issue of MyNorth Wedding Magazine which features Julie & Dani's wedding from this past summer!  This was such a fun day and it feels amazing to see it in a print publication alongside other amazing Northern Michigan weddings & vendors.  Hooray!

KELLY & MATT // WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PREVIEW // ANN ARBOR

I don't know what to write to express how special Kelly & Matt's wedding was.  These two have a very genuine bond which was very apparent in their laugh out loud funny ceremony.  But their day was also the perfect mix of funny and beautifully emotional.  I don't think there was a dry eye in the house during Kelly's dad's toast.  Congrats you two, we wish you only the best.

 
 

LINDSAY & RYAN // WEDDING VIDEO PREVIEW // TRAVERSE CITY

Lindsay and Ryan were married on a gorgeous sunny day, at Ciccone Vineyard & Winery.  The party followed them to the Hagerty Center, for an awesome celebration that lasted late into the night overlooking the lights on Grand Traverse Bay.  The video will do a much better job of showing off this stunning wedding, so I will let it speak for itself!

 
 

Shout out to Allison and the Events North team - thank you!  And it was a pleasure working alongside Jamie & Sarah.
