Cristin and Mike were married this past spring, in a beautifully simple Michigan wedding. The bride is a DIY enthusiast and made all of the decor (including the adorable centerpieces) as well as her own invitations. One of her friends even made the gorgeous cake! Lovely aesthetics and color palette aside, I think it’s fabulous that Cristin’s brother stood up as her “bride’s man” versus being a groomsmen. I always love it when couples make a wedding truly their own!
This adorable couple and their courthouse elopement is so refreshingly simple. I love that the images are just about the two of them – it’s all so timeless and…romantic! Jenny and Jeff knew that they didn’t want a large wedding, so they followed their instincts and opted for a small private ceremony at their local courthouse. They followed the ceremony with an intimate reception at Jeff’s parents home that evening. Such a great reminder to be true to yourselves and plan the day you really want! Huge thanks to Nicole Firestone of Sunshine Charlie for these gorgeous photos.
I always live it when a bride commits to a bold color palette, so Kerri & Jason’s orange and pink color combination was an instant favorite! The couple originally wanted to be married at the World’s Fair Pavilion, but when the venue was booked they incorporated the vibe they wanted to achieve into a new space. During the reception Kerri’s was surprised by a phone call from her sister, who was at home on bed rest and about to have a baby. The DJ put the call on speaker phone and by the time the conversation was through there wasn’t a dry eye in the house – such a sweet moment!
