The Barthas | Modern Country Wedding, The Medalist in Marshall MI

 Riley and Ryon's Medalist wedding in Marshall, Michigan made my photographer side twitch in joy!  One of my favorite parts of the weddings I photograph is to see how my couples make their weddings personal and unique- I absolutely loved the cool eco-flowers for the bouquets (www.ecoflowers.com) that smelled gorgeous and looked so sweet. 

As always, the Medalist knocked it out of the park.  They offer an awesome setting for the best pictures, and I am stoked to always get the most vivid sunset pictures out there.  Check out the end of the post for nature's light show at the end of the night! 

A huge congrats to Riley and Ryon on their marriage!  Cheers to them!

Dani + Adam | Bowens Mills Summer Barn Wedding, Michigan

Okay.  This wedding... there's a plethora of things I could talk about when it comes to this uber special, intimate, personal wedding.  I'll try to let the images speak for themselves in terms of the amazing bond this couple has not only with each other, but with every. single. person. they have in their lives. 

Adam and Dani are utterly, undeniably, ahhhh-mazing.  They are passionate people and their caring is infectious!  Adam spoke so eloquently about his connection to deaf-culture- he's an awesome sign language interpreter and they carried many facets of this into their wedding (waving napkins instead of clinking glasses, sign language interpreters for the ceremony, and even a surprise speech by Adam's beautiful mother in sign...).  Dani is equally infectious- her laugh and personality make you feel like you are enveloped in love.  It was easy for me to share parts of my own life with these two throughout our time together, which is not something I easily do!  :) 

Bowens Mills was the perfect backdrop for Adam and Dani's rustic modern vibe- from the cool red mill, to the victorian house, to the sizeable reception hall... enjoy feasting your eyes on these lush images full of emotion and personal touches.

Whitney & Aaron | Bay Pointe Inn Wedding, Michigan

Whitney and Aaron's romantic Bay Pointe Inn wedding last August was a blisteringly hot day- and not just because of the weather!  A group of people on fire for each other, the day began with a flurry of activity setting up everything under the pavilion and at the ceremony area so it would be just right.  And they knocked it out of the park! 

The navy accents and gorgeous florals complimented the beautiful lakeside venue and all the special personal details were breathtaking.  I LOVE their Michigan shaped guest book wood sign, and who wouldn't swoon over a slice of heavenly Crane's bakery pie?! 

When I first met Whitney she came across as someone I had known forever- it was like talking to an old friend!  This level of comfort helped me know what to shoot for at the wedding and created a gorgeous, intimate look into their wedding day.  Lots of hugs, lots of tears (of joy, of COURSE!), and lots of cheers!

Congratulations to Aaron and Whitney!

Steven and Carolyn : MSU Foodie Chic Wedding

When I first talked to Carolyn and Steven, my heart was on fire for them.  They had such a passion for each other, and were both so alight about their wedding plans.  Nothing is more exciting to me than couples who enjoy one another and eat up the process of planning their unique wedding! 

They described their wedding as a feast of epic proportions- a real foodie-inspired reception (oh man, did Red Haven knock it out of the park!) and an intimate musically rich ceremony.  I've never heard such amazing music/worship during a ceremony!

Enjoy these emotional, meaningful Michigan wedding images that span from the steps of Michigan State University to the patio of Red Haven.
