WEDDING: Andy and Katie

Charlevoix, Michigan

Andy and Katie have known each other for years. That’s because Andy’s brother and Katie’s sister are married. Yep, it was McLaughlin and Mingay nuptials 2.0. Two families already well-woven together so much so that Katie wore two special necklaces — her grandmother’s and Andy’s grandmother’s. Their two-year-old daughter was part of the whole day from getting ready to finally falling asleep on the dance floor. They were married in a place owned by Katie’s family at one time and the walls of the barn reception were decorated with quilts made by the bride’s grandmother and her sisters. When I first talked to Katie on the phone she told me she wanted her wedding to feel like “a fun party with lots of laughter.” I do believe you succeeded.

WEDDING: Justin and Rachel

Charlevoix, Michigan

Justin and Rachel came from Brooklyn so they could get married in Charlevoix — a town and place where Rachel spent so much time with her family. And because Justin and Rachel were high school sweethearts, (actually Justin has liked Rachel since kindergarten!) the place has become special for him, too. I didn’t get the opportunity to meet Justin and Rachel before their wedding day, but it was a joy to hear how these two people, that have extremely different personalities, have an intense respect, love and appreciation for one another.

Here are some other things that I loved: Rachel wore a hair comb that was made from her grandmother’s headpiece and their wedding rings were designed by Rachel’s cousin. I LOVE that Rachel and Justin are full of emotion — there was so much hugging, laughter and crying. The trumpet player deserves a medal for the best live version of Hava Nagila I’ve ever heard. There was an amazing sunset. My husband, Jon, was not only my chaperone but also shot some of these amazing images.¬†Oh, and the best part…the surprise flash mob that the couple’s friends and family orchestrated! How fun is that?!

Justin and Rachel, may your love continue to surprise you.
