Congrats J&R {Michigan Wedding Photographer}

Recently I had the pleasure of travelling to Rockford Michigan to photograph J&R's wedding. You will remember them and their fun engagement session :) "J" was an absolutely stunning bride. We didn't let the down pouring rain ruin our day, although we had to make adjustments along the way, in the end everything worked out fine and the outdoor wedding took place.

Here are a few before shots...
Here is her gorgeous dress!!



I loved the bouquets, simply beautiful...


I can't tell ya why I love this one so much. I think it was because I was there for so much of the "before hand" worries of whether to go through with the wedding outdoors or not. But I knew in my heart that the bride wanted her wedding outdoors and I was so glad the rain stopped when it did and held off for it all to happen. This is the first shot I took when they both arrived up front to take their places and I guess the look on the brides face just says it all for me. It's like it was all worth it, we're here together and that's all that matter. I don't know...I just love this one.
And I am SO glad you got your outdoor wedding :)

We did a lot of pictures on this bridge as it was 1 of the only dry places in the park :)


Another fave of mine. This was the last shot I took of them together before we left the park. I remember "R" always kissing "J's" forehead during the engagement session, so we had to have 1 from the wedding as well :)




Possibly my very favorite one :)


And some fun ones of the wedding party!!


And 1 from the reception, the first dance :)

Congrats J&R...thank you for letting me be apart of this time in your life. I've so very much enjoyed getting to know you both!!
Hope you enjoyed your sneak peek :)

BEAUTIFUL! I just adore the image of the couple kissing on the bridge. If that were my wedding, I'd blow that portrait up BIG and display proudly in my home.
