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 🙂

The fabulous Kris form Merry Makers http://merrymkr.com did all the amazing planning!

Amy from Amy Kate Designs http://amykatedesigns.com did all the awesome floral and designs!

Jedi Mind Trip played the fantastic music! https://www.facebook.com/JediMindTrip/

The wedding and reception itself was held on the grounds of The Charlevoix Country Club http://www.chxcountryclub.com at Shanahan’s Barn

On to the photos!

Thanks to Ryan for the big help on this day!

As I blog these photos in the middle of this January blizzard, I can’t remember if this was the hottest day of the summer or not. But looking back on the photos I do remember it being very hot. I could go for that right now 🙂 Its officially -6 degrees as I type.

Cass & Ernie were married at Laketown Conference Center in Saugutuck this past summer.

Its January in Michigan and that typically involves snowy slushy roads, blizzards and terms on the evening news forecast like wind chill and snow advisories. But on their wedding date Jacklyn and Adam brought us good luck with the driving temperatures and even the possibility of taking a wedding party outdoors here in Grand Rapids.

As usual the Public Museum of Grand Rapids was a magnificent setting  for the out of town guests, the local friends and family and the bridal party.  Her Disney themed wedding was a smash. Their party rocked and of course the wedding pictures on the carousel were absolutely a blast!

Abby and I had a great day photographing and documenting for you both! We hope you enjoy 🙂

Sara & Craig were married at Bridge Street Wedding Chapel in Grand Ledge, a fantastic place to get married in. All the details are terrific. The owners are photographers and put the thought into what furniture and details may be in the background of the photographs. After the wedding we made a pit stop to see Sparty on the campus of Michigan State University. What Spartan would not want to see Sparty on wedding day? The reception was at Eagle Eye in Bath Michigan. Thanks Sara & Craig, Abby and I had such a blast with you all!
