Dona and Randy joined their families on the beach at The Homestead in Glen Arbor. We had a little rain but that was a completely acceptable trade off for what the sky offered us. Look at those rays!!
Oh my goodness! This family! Everybody came together for a vacation up north with the most precious little doll. This may be the happiest child I have seen in a while. The entire time was nothing but smiles and giggles!
It was so nice to see the Drake family back this year. I think we figured out that it’s been 6 years since we did family photos last time. Little miss Harper is now a lovely young lady and has a little brother who keeps her on her toes. I can’t wait to see how big these wonderful kids will be next time! It always surprises me how fast time goes!
Nate and Kathleen will be getting married next fall in Traverse City. Tessa, their Golden Retriever, joined us for engagement photos and was a super good girl. Yes, that is miss Tessa dog rocking out a Michigan State team jersey!
These two lovely ladies shared their vows in the vines of Shady Lane Cellars among their closest family and friends. The ceremony was read in both English and French and Bene’s family joined us all the way from her homeland of France. Their wedding party joined us for a champagne toast up the road at L.Mawby and we took a quick trip to Suttons Bay Ciders. The joy among these two was so fun to witness!
The Wyatt family all came together as a family at their summer home in Northport. There are three little people in this growing group, two of whom know how to steal the show! These cousins may be ones to watch as they grow up; cousins are always your first best friends.
Shane will be graduating high school this coming year. He runs cross country, enjoys spending time at the family lake house, and it’s pretty apparent that he loves his dog. Here is a fine example of a young person who will go far in the world and make good things happen for his future!
Kelley and Chris hosted their friends and family from near and far at Castle Farms in Charlevoix Michigan, for their wedding. It was a great day of laughter, happy tears, and some pretty comical dinner toasts.
These two actually surprised me. I often see people exchange gifts or letters behind doors or a wall without seeing each other, but I’ve not seen people exchange private vows before the ceremony. And it was wonderful! The heartfelt messages of truth, hope, and love, shared only between themselves and us little birds, was just wonderful to witness.
Stacey and Troy had a beautiful summer day for a wedding in Charlevoix. We started out at each of their rental homes in town with their families and then went for the ceremony at St. Mary’s Church. Everybody had good fun on the trolley cruising around downtown and to the beach. They had the East Garden Room at Castle farms decorated with beautiful details for the reception.
Ashley and Logan had a full day of fun for their wedding in at Visions at Centerpoint in Traverse City. The color scheme of blues and corals coordinated so well with the marina and barn locations.
