Jake and Jessica Wedding! | Hastings Michigan


Awwww Jake and Jessica!!!
I found myself saying, “SO cute so cute so cute…” The entire time I edited. Because they are so so so cute!

There are a lot of details! So stroll (or scroll) with me….

A backyard wedding! A beautiful family estate with high grasses and a variety of mature trees.  Love the covered hay bails.

Special moment for brides maids. The girls didn’t know what the dressed looked like. What a sweet surprise for them!
storyboard008First look in the field!  Loved!!  They are so so so cute!!!  While they took a moment to embrace… the clouds started to roll in.   Thunder in the background and a cool breeze followed.  No rain at this point though.. it really added to the beauty of this nature themed wedding.storyboard009 storyboard010 storyboard011 storyboard012 storyboard013 storyboard014 storyboard015 storyboard016 storyboard017 storyboard018

A photographers dream! I was given nearly two hours to play with this group! Let me inspire you to do the same:

It started to rain a little bit… we took shelter in a barn in Charlton Park.  We took advantage of the beautiful light!  storyboard022 storyboard023 storyboard024

So cute so cute!! You are saying it too!

This is one of my favorite alternatives to the unity candle! I wish I had done this when I got married!  One of my most favorite parts of the ceremony was when wedding guests came up to bless Jake and Jessica together! Emotional!

storyboard035Lots of details at the reception that was held in a pavilion in a park! Almost every detail has a story! storyboard038 storyboard036 storyboard039

The bouquet toss! The single ladies got little handmade flags with their names on it to put on the lawn… the flowers will land next to the winning flag! And… slingshot bouquets are a must!
