Fireworks For This Fourth of July Couple

The 4th of July is the bride’s favorite holiday.  What better day than to also get married on your favorite day?  The couple was planning on surprising everyone at the backyard BBQ with their wedding, but decided to spill the beans (not the baked beans : ) so that all would show up in time to celebrate this joyous occasion with them.  The weather was perfect and the couple had known each other when they were younger.  As happens, life sent them in different directions, but alas, they found each other again and knew that the fireworks were still there!

Princess Processional for a Princess Bride

On this beautiful day in May at Boulder Pointe,  each one of the bridesmaids walked the aisle to a different Disney Princess theme song.  It was so unique and special as it ushered in the bride who truly looked like the ultimate Princess!  The couple chose to put together the Unity Cross to seal their commitment to God and to each other.  As this Princess married her Prince — may they live their fairytale happily ever after . . .

Passing Up/Down the Wedding Gown!

Dan and Tracy in Lindon July 5th 2014 009As I went to talk to the bride and was admiring her wedding gown, her daughter told me that her mom was wearing her wedding gown.  That was a new twist!  How great it was the mom was able to fit into her daughter’s gown and get another wearing for it.  Maybe, when the granddaughter grows up, she can be part of the tradition and wear it also! Dan and Tracy in Lindon July 5th 2014 004 This fun backyard wedding involved a bonfire, music and fun guests and was a most perfect day for the newlyweds!

Let’s Hit The Road!

It is summertime. He has a daughter, she has a daughter.  What better way to start a family vacation, than a pre-trip wedding!  The girls knew they were going on vacation, but they didn’t know their parents were going to marry the morning they were leaving.  With the van packed, they all headed up north for a much needed and perfectly planned Honeymoon/Vacation Fun Trip!Little weddding 004

Five Times to Get IT Right!

Castle Wedding And Uris 041 (1)It’s not what you think–this is not the fifth time this couple have been married, but it is the fifth time they were married to each other!  It started as a joke, but then, it became a fun tradition.  They got married in Vegas by an Elvis impersonator–twice at the Renaissance Festival and once by “Friar Tuck” at a costume party!  It was such fun to pronounce them truly and legally married in the fifth and final ceremony!  Since you two decided to tie the knot five times, I would say that you are going to make it last.  Looking forward to their vow renewals in the future!Party (1)

Calypso, Clouds and Geese?

This couple had a beautiful day for their Greystone wedding and a Steel Drum Band played while the family and friends were seated and the processional began. 

A cool breeze and sunny skies had all the makings of a perfect wedding, almost . . . that is until a gaggle of geese decided to fly directly over the ceremony honking like crazy!  Of course, having to stop the ceremony until they past was not the worst fear–thank God they did not decide to leave any “deposits” on the anxious guests!!

Castle Wedding in Northern Michigan

Main HouseChapel Path (2)Center stage (2)perfect (2)Signing (2)Who knew there was a castle in Deckerville, MI??  This amazing place, Inner Circle Estates is in the middle of the woods.  It is a castle in every respect, both inside and out.  We were so excited when this couple asked us to do their wedding ceremony there!  Everywhere you looked, was a romantic and photographic opportunity.  The wedding took place in an outdoor chapel that replicated a covered bridge! The bride was concerned that it was going to rain on her otherwise perfect day, but God smiled once again and allowed a dry and comfortable ceremony for us all to enjoy!

Beautiful Bay City Day

Casey and Jess Bay City Country Club 014What a gorgeous June day for this wedding at the Bay City Country Club for this Veteran and his bride.  Adverse times in their life brought them together at a support group and, as they say, the rest is history.  Their blended family were a part of the sand ceremony and the bride cried when she saw how many guests had turned out to share in the ceremony!  It was an honor and privilege to be a part of the moment that united them as one . . husband and wife!

Love on Lake Huron

This beautiful couple rented a beach house on the lake for their nuptials.  Down the long staircase walked the bride with the sun behind her which was stunning. Salvatore Wedding 004 An ATV was designated as the “limo” to bring the guests down who could not navigate the stairs–then the 3 little flower girls did what wedding pictures are made for! Salvatore Wedding 007 How incredibly perfect is this picture of them dipping their toes in the water following the wedding! 

It was an absolutely picturesque day for a beach wedding and we were so honored to be apart of it/  Salvatore Wedding 016
