I’ve had this one waiting in the wings, and I’m so excited to share it with you on this Thanksgiving Day. MaryBeth & Nick’s Cornman Farms wedding in late October was filled to the brim with incredible details, friends from afar and the. most. perfect. fall day on the farm.  It was nearly 70 degrees on their wedding day, we had sunshine, the richest fall colors, goats and even a piñata filled with libations.

MaryBeth & Nick both got ready on the farm that morning before heading downstairs for their first look and strolling the grounds with their wedding party. These two are very laid back and we spent most of our time visiting with some of their closest, enjoying Nicks favorite donuts, sipping on wine and anticipating the arrival of family & friends from around the globe.  Needless to say, every detail of their wedding day was incredible.  My dear friend Jen House Design put together one of the most stunning palettes in a bouquet that I’ve seen all season (can you say protea??), and the flowers truly set the stage for this fall wedding.  Their reception was held in the tent on the grounds and was dripping in the prettiest pops of red, gold and glass.  Sometimes, when I shoot weddings like this I hope my images even begin to translate just how pretty it was in person. Ok, so maybe I’ll just stop trying to describe it and let their images tell the story.

I secretly wish every blog post would start with confetti.  Like this one! I can imagine when Rachel and Mike started to plan their Inn at St. John’s wedding, they pictured perfect weather, family, friends and lots of live music and dancing.  It was so much fun bringing their vision to life on their wedding day!  And what a beautiful day they had.  I was in love with the colors Rachel chose for her maids.  Simply smitten with the rich blues, varied textures and just that tiny splash of peach to punch it up.  It was honestly sheer perfection and I loved shooting it.  All the details were well thought out, and the entire day pulled together beautifully.  And because I know you guys don’t come here to read all my sappy writing … let’s be honest you come here for the pretty pictures! Here’s a look at Rachel & Mike’s Inn at St. John’s wedding.

Wyndgate Country Club

August feels like an eternity from today, but I bet it doesn’t for Sara & Marc who tied the knot for their beautiful Wyndgate Country Club wedding.  In just spending a few days with these two for their Ann Arbor engagement and wedding day, I know that they’re still reveling in the emotions that were running through their wedding day.  I nearly fell over when I saw Sara in her pink wedding dress by Madison James. Honestly, she took everyone’s great away especially Marc’s when she came floating down the aisle wth her dad at her side. It wasn’t an ordinary August wedding day with blue skies and such.  No, it was rathe one of those early fall days that Mother Natures throws out every once in awhile mixed with blue skies, angry clouds and raindrops. And this is exactly what happened to Sara & Marc on their wedding day. The kids were a beautiful blue for most of the day, then these big rain clouds moved in, teasing us with pops of sunshine too.  And jus as Sara & her dad stepped outside, we saw the rainclouds let loose, as I watched my second Hannah hand over her umbrella to them.  Laughter at the irony of the day filled the moments s we saw a concerned Marc up at the front wonderful if she was ok with all of this. It was certainly a memorable day for me as a wedding photographer! Marc took the umbrella from her dad and right there under the magic of this temperamental August sky, they exchanged vows.  And (I am not kidding) the moment they were leading up to that fist kiss … the sun made it’s appearance once again.  It was indeed magical. What an awesome moment for everyone leading right up to the celebration and dancing into the night amongst some of the prettiest details compliments of Bellisario Flowers and the staff at the Wyndgate.  Not a dry eye in the house when Sara & her dad took the floor for their father daughter dance. Here’s a few of my favorite moments and details of their day.

Sara & Marc … truly.  What a pleasure getting to know the two of you and being there to capture all of the expected and unexpected moments of your wedding day.  Watching the two of you fall deeper in love by the minute was incredible to watch and I’m humbled to have been even a small part of it all.  Wishing you both the very best, and so many adventures to come. xoxo, Mishelle
