To kick off my wedding season for 2017, I was privileged to begin with Lauren and Will’s beautiful northern Michigan wedding. I met Lauren and Will last fall when I took their engagement pictures at Michigan State University’s campus. They both were student athletes at MSU and wanted to incorporate that significant place in their pictures. And one thing I have learned, MSU is a large part of their families history and tradition.
But their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous. The weather was warm and sunny with a bit of a breeze. Their wedding ceremony was at one of the most stunning catholic cathedrals in the heart of downtown Petoskey, Michigan. They rode a boat across Walloon Lake, a cherished family landmark to their wedding reception. And they let the sun go down with cherished family members and friends while celebrating the first day of their lives as husband and wife. It was pretty awesome.
I loved watching your families and guests interact, tell stories, laugh and dance the night away. I was honored to be able to hear some of those stories and meet some pretty amazing people throughout the day too. And of course, I ended the night to dozens of Michigan State alumni and current students chanting the fight song and gathering on the dance floor for a group picture. It was a pretty incredible day with a pretty incredible couple. Thank you so much Lauren and Will for letting me share that with you! Congratulations you two!
