Wow! I haven’t done a wedding blog post in so long I actually had to refer back to make sure I was doing the formatting correctly. Well, it’s spring now so you know what that means? Lots of wedding posts to come!
We kicked off our season this year with Cara and Michael’s wedding. They were married in late April, and were blessed with the most beautiful day! Considering Michigan’s track record, it could have been anywhere from freezing with snow to scorching hot but their day landed at a comfortable temperature right in between.
I am grateful that this wedding was our first of the year because it started us off on an awesome foot. We loved shooting this wedding! Cara and Michael are so easy going, and their families were so organized and helpful, it really made this day a joy for us.
Aside from the ease of the day, my favorite moment was pre ceremony pictures. When we first arrived at the location, we drove around to scope out potential photo locations so we were prepared when we took all of the portraits. We shot the bridesmaids and groomsmen in the places we picked out previously, but when it came to Cara and Michael, since they saw each other before the ceremony, we had enough time to improvise. When we rounded one side of the building across the street, we came upon the most unexpected setting. There was lush grass, large trees, and dandelion fluff floating through the air. It was gorgeous! It’s so inspiring and exciting to stumble upon these little oasis’ when shooting a wedding.
I hope you all enjoy recap of their day! Congratulations Cara and Michael!

Unexpected, sweet surprise.
With one hello, I’ll never be the same.”
