Ashleigh & Dan | Wedding | August 23, 2015

Ashleigh and Dan (and Jaxson, too) were married at the top of the mountain at The Homestead Resort in Glen Arbor.  The day began with wet, ominous skies, and as the ceremony time rolled around, the sun came out and greeted us with a beautiful day.  I think the best part was Jaxson’s three barks at the first kiss when everyone clapped and cheered!

Into the evening we had a chance to play with a new idea.  The Homestead does not allow sparklers to be used on site, so we tried glow sticks.  I actually really like the smoothness to the look of the glow sticks!  And then there was my pond idea.  I’ve been stewing on this one for a while and just waiting for the right time to try it out.  Success!  And after looking at the final product, I felt the moon would be a great addition.  Oh, the things I see in my head!  Do you think they’d let me put a boat in the pond . . . .

Sally & Chad | Wedding | July 25, 2015

Some days are just epically perfect!  This was one of those days.  Just the right combination of summer sun, fun personalities, a loving connection between all in attendance, and really great homemade details.  Oh, AND a puppy-dog, wedding-libs, sunflowers, and a killer sunset to top it all off, too.

Ryan & Lauren | Wedding | July 18, 2015

Lauren and Ryan were the winners of the 2014 Castle Farms Grand Bridal Expo Grand Wedding Give-Away.  This lucky couple opted for a barn wedding and then a Castle reception.  They had the most fantastic details both in the barn and at the reception.  The big sunflowers in cowboy boots and barbed-wire hurricane globes for table centerpieces were just lovely!

Haley & Chris | Wedding | July 11, 2015

Haley and Chris had an absolutely perfect day for a Castle Wedding!  The way these two interacted with each other, a light touch or a glance of the eye, was wonderful to watch.  Their families were close in themselves and so accepting of each other.  It’s great to see a truly easy and stress-free day where everybody is there 100% for the happy union of the bride and groom!
