Northern Michigan has a special place in my heart and as I made the drive up to Mission Table to shoot Amy and Cody's wedding the drive was along the beach the entire way from my hotel and it took my breath away. I sat in the car in almost tears before I walked in it truly sunk in how blessed I am to have such an incredible job. Amy and Cody entrusted me to capture one of the most important days of their lives and I imagined all of the beautiful photos I was going to capture that I hope they would treasure forever.
Amy was a bit nervous as most brides are on their wedding day, and insisted she had to hold her groom's hand before the wedding to calm her nerves and her and Cody's hands touched Amy began to cry. All of their hard work planning this wedding had come together, and it was time for her to walk down the aisle. Everyone was in tears as she walked down this was it the moment every bride and groom dream of. It was incredible to witness how much they loved each.
Afterwards a beautiful candlelit dinner followed with some amazing food and toasts. We then all made our way to this beautiful house Amy and Cody rented for everyone to hang out and dance in. I may have gotten lost trying to find it but when I finally did it did not disappoint.
It was decorated adorable and cozy with tons of candles and Amy and Cody did their first dance surrounded by friends and family with sparklers lit. Amy and her brother danced together since her dad has passed and I began to cry trying not to sob it was such a powerful moment. After the dances everyone did a shot in Amy's dad's honor they had carried the latern with his photo on it throughout the day. It was such a beautiful way to incorporate his memory.
Amy and Cody thank you for choosing us and we wish you many happy years to come!
