sandwiched between grey days on friday and sunday, i had the privilege this past saturday to make my way over to the lakeshore for ashleigh and alex's country club wedding. i've shot at spring lake country club before, but the ceremony location right on the water is always as stunning as ever. under the picturesque hanging branches of a giant willow tree, these two got married with friends and family looking on with love and support.

saturday had all sorts of fun including a little wedding party getaway after the ceremony on the boat alex helps charter out of grand haven. these two love their boats, and love to fish, and we tried to incorporate that theme of classic nautical accents throughout the day. after their engagement session in the fall, i knew they would be wonderful to work with, and the wedding day was no different. its always great when the 'work' melts into just having fun with the wedding party!

a&a, you two looked fabulous on your wedding day and i am so excited to watch you grow closer together over the years. thank you for the honor of joining in the celebration and God's blessings on you two as you jump into the deep end of such a rich and rewarding endeavor as being husband and wife!

love you guys*
