It’s not very often that I get the chance to leave the island and experience a mainland Northern Michigan wedding… I was stoked to photograph Katie and Eric’s wedding at the Boyne Country Club.
Katie and Eric have had quite a busy year… when we first met (via phone) they were living in Chicago then as the year went on they moved to Denver. So not only did they plan an amazing wedding but they moved across the country. Their wedding was so personal. You can tell these two love the outdoors and nature yet have a sense of class and elegance. Their wedding was a perfect mix.. kind of like Chicago meets Denver with a Northern Michigan twist.
So this is what I knew about these two going in: they love hiking, climbing, all things outdoorsy and cool… the ties with their family and friends are strong and touching (as with each speech reactions ranged from hearty laughs to teary eyes) … that this wedding was going to be incredibly personal and full of fun meaningful details (from the hand made arch, to the mini trees)… every little detail of this wedding was purposeful and heartfelt. What I was not expecting was the crazy dance party that ensued… Katie and Eric can GET DOWN!! They were rockstars on that dance floor!! It took everything I had not to join in myself… (okay.. so maybe I did a little dance move or two in the corner… shhhh)!
Katie & Eric, It was so much fun to be a part of your day! You two truly know how to have fun and enjoy each other. Your personalities blend so well together I can see how you can support and push each other as you climb mountains! May you two continue to climb every mountain and explore the world with the same joy and groove as your beautiful day!!
I have to give a shout out to my awesome assistant for the day Kim Buchanan… a very dear friend who has her own photography business in Texas…
