John & Meghan's Wedding Day!

Meghan and John have been together since high school and seeing how loved these two were by their families and how well both families blended together was so beautiful. It was like one big family! 

Moments before the ceremony John and Meghan prayed together (making sure not to see each other before the ceremony). His mom was so sweet and teary eyed before, during, and after the ceremony. John's uncle lead the ceremony. After their I do's they, along with their bridal party, headed to downtown Jackson in a trolley bus. The toasts before dinner were hilarious, the dinner fantastic, and the dancing incredible! The bride did such a beautiful job of completely transforming the space (Lumen Christi High School. Where they met!) into a beautiful banquet hall! Meghan added so many beautiful touches to their day, including their bouquets! Their night was so much fun! EVERYONE danced (even grandpa got up and danced with the bride) into the night and the two took off together through sparkling lights to their honeymoon! 

Congratulations Meghan and John! You are a kind and fun couple and it was such an honor to be a part of your day! 

Congratulations John & Meghan!

Anna's Horse Show 2017

A couple of years back I had the honor of taking pictures for Anna and her horse Tinkerbell and it was so much fun! Since then she has continued to ride and has grown into such a beautiful young lady. This past weekend she took her horse Max to an open competition and it was so beautiful to see her riding so gracefully with him. Anna I'm so proud of you! You are a true sweetheart!  Enjoy your summer and I hope to bring our boys out to see you ride again soon! 

They grow so fast! Hard to believe these pictures from her first photo shoot were just two years ago! 

Keith & Krista's Wedding Day

Congratulations to newlyweds Keith and Krista! This adorable couple were celebrated with their family and friends at The Silo in Allegan, MI under a beautiful country blue spring sky!  

Before guests arrived the two met together under the balcony for a "first look" and some alone time together (with a few cameras present ;) ). The rustic wagon, and covered porch were the perfect setting for their country styled wedding. These two were so sweet on each other that picture perfect moments were a breeze to capture!

It was beautiful to see just how much this day meant for the two of them. Together with written vows, communion together, and the tying of a three stranded cord they solidified their commitment to one another. 

After dinner the two slipped out to practice their dance and wowed everyone with their beautiful waltz and choreographed garter dance! Everyone filled the dance floor and some watched from the balcony as the two took a walk at sunset. After dancing all night the two headed off onto their honeymoon with a sparkler sendoff! 

Krista and Keith, I'm so happy for you both. It is a wonderful thing to share life with your best friend. I hope you continue to grow strong in your bond with one another and with God as your center. Congratulations! 

And last but not least a huge thank you to the wonderful staff at The Silo and a huge thank you to the amazing Jennifer Buehrer for assisting all day. Jennifer your perspective and timing are beautiful! I cannot imagine the day and the drive without your fun company!

Alex and Alexandra's Wedding Day

Spring peaked just in time for Alex and Alexandra's beautiful Michigan wedding! These two have traveled from Michigan to Texas and back again to be with each other and could not wait for this amazing day to come! 

While an intimate group of friends and family gathered in the sanctuary, Alexandra's father waited to see her in her wedding dress. His expression was priceless!

After a beautiful ceremony, family hugs, and pictures we headed to downtown Jackson for pictures of just the two of them.

There were so many beautiful touches to their day including the beautiful bouquets that Alexandra made with a bracelet in memory of her brother.
