I try not to get to wordy on a blog post, after all I am a photographer and not a novelist. But I feel the need to tell just a touch of backstory. For those that know CJ you can skip right over too the photos – for if you know him then there is nothing I can say that you don’t already know. The three of us met earlier in the year to do engagement photos and I knew we all would have an amazing wedding day together. As I arrived at Boyne Mountain for the get ready photos the day of the wedding CJ pulls me aside and says “keep quiet, check out this Suit!” In a few images you will see a hot pink suit. Turns out the ever sweet and patient Danielle says to CJ months before “get whatever kind of suit you want”. So to her surprise (as he cascades down the Boyne Mountain slope on the chairlift for their “first look”) he is in the hot pink get up. Needless to say we had a few great moments with all surprises on Danielle. As we wander to get a few photos of the said suit and Danielle in her stunning wedding dress we turn the corner and what in the world awaits us but a Hot Pink and White ’55 Ford Sunliner. Forgive my cursing but as we turned and looked “Holy S***” were not the only words out of our mouths. We met the couple who’s car it was and they were happy to have us take photos with it.
Not to worry, the rest of the wedding Cj wore his “Normal” wedding day suit and the guests were non the wiser 🙂

Thanks to Ryan for the big help on this day!
Caitlin & Steve were married up in the Traverse City area up on the Leland Peninsula. A Ciccone Vineyards wedding is magical. I love photographing at Ciccone Winery for weddings. The light, the time of day and the guests make for an exciting day no matter what time of year.
Congrats Caitlin & Steve!

Photographing a wedding in Traverse City is pure joy. Photographing a reception at Bowers Harbor at the Peninsula Room is pure awesome. Photographing the wedding of Libby & Alex was magic. Working alongside of the fabulous Kris from Merry Makers in Traverse City is always fantastic and getting to see the artwork of floral arraignments from Amy at Amy Kate Designs is pure bliss. The wedding ceremony was actually in Elk Rapids and the wedding guests stayed at the lovely Grand Traverse Resort. The get ready photos were at the Grand Traverse Resort as well.
Congrats Libby and Alex!!
