james + laura | wedding | bay harbor, mi

all things bright and beautiful!

another wedding for the books this past saturday...with enchanting views, inviting waters, awesome vendors, and of course, a bride and groom ready for their magazine cover!

let's talk about james and laura. these two were fabulous, with such a great blend of laid back easy going, with true class and sophistication...i mean, i guess i should have expected it..with james just becoming a doctor and laura well on her way too. although we hadn't met in person prior to their big day up in bay harbor, phone calls, emails, and of course instagram helped introduce us and prepare me for what would turn out to be a gorgeous summer day in northern michigan!

with a nautical theme throughout the day, the backdrop of the Bay Harbor Village Hotel marina was absolutley perfect! a stunning cake by simply sweet by jessica & flowers from the exquisite BLOOM floral and design were radiant and made my job of photographing details very exciting!! we even headed out on the lake for a quick wedding party excursion following the ceremony, how appropriate and awesome, right!?

i also have the privilege of spending the day working next to mindy and lane of vintage story books - a husband and wife creative duo who's film of the wedding i can't wait to see! all in all, it was pretty epic..from the classic groomsmen pose of 'scare the bear!' to a brief but very wet and loud thunderstorm during the reception, it was a day to remember*

oh yeah...and there was a delorean. great scott! 

thank you j&l, for your trust throughout the whole day, for your generosity and warmth, and for the privilege of capturing images that hopefully will bring you back to june 28th, 2014 for years to come!

blessings,
