tyler + alia | wedding | crystal mountain, mi

lets just say there were a lot of tears shed this past saturday...the best kind of tears*

alia and tyler truly wear their hearts on their sleeves...and to watch them take in their wedding day, moment by moment, was really quite beautiful. when i first met these two for their engagement session up in manistee, right away i knew they would be a blast to work with! and the transition from hired hand to friend seemed to me as seamless as ever....and that made for a really spectacular day, really!

i know i might say it a lot, but northern michigan absolutely put on a show with a forecast of perfection, from start to finish.  the bluest of skies, the nearest of family, the dearest of friends, the stunning beauty of the crystal mountain resort and spa made for a day to remember!

t&a, thank you for being completely and wholly yourselves on your wedding day. for embracing the emotions of the day and allowing me to capture those moments that hopefully will remain close to your heart and in your head for years to come.  your gracious words were so very encouraging and i am so thankful for the opportunity i had to witness your wedding.

all the very best!
