Don't you just love it when your plans all just seem to fall into place? Who doesn't, right? Well, this shoot did just that. From the amazing and beautiful couple to the fantastic dream crew of vendors, this shoot was destined to rock!
The first time I spoke with Katelyn I knew that I would adore her - she is super sweet and kind, easy-going and stunning, as you can see! Before I met them both in-person, Katelyn told me that Kyle had a beard. I knew at that moment that I would adore him just as much. Watching them interact with one another had us all on cloud nine!
I knew that Katelyn and Kyle were going to be celebrating their 5-year wedding anniversary this summer, so it was very fitting that I was able to give them anniversary photos for the occasion. However, I later found out that they never actually had professional wedding photos taken on their wedding day, just some snap shots here and there. When I heard this, my heart melted and I immediately felt a huge sense of gratitude for this experience and for being able to finally give Katelyn and Kyle their wedding photos. And although, I wasn't able to be their on their actual wedding day, 5 years ago, the images speak volumes to the beautiful couple they have become over this time.
Our amazing wedding planner worked her planner-magic to find the beautiful Birchview Outdoor Wedding and Event Center. With it's rustic feel and delicate details, it was an ideal setting. The venue sits right beside Mueller's Orchard in Fenton, MI, so it's removed from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding cities, which is one of the reasons I love it. The open land and star-lit nights create a perfect marriage between romantic and carefree.
Putting it All Together
I feel so blessed to have been able to work with such an amazing group of creatives to make this dream not only a reality, but to create images for Katelyn and Kyle that they will cherish forever. From the beautiful gown by Detroit Bridal House to the hand-made jewelry by Pebble and Stone (who I later found out is practically my neighbor) and all the wonderful details in between - I am sure this gallery will have you dreaming about your big day! Here are just a few of my absolute favorites.
