Andrea and Matt’s reception was quite a party, and it ended with a spectacular glow stick dance off!
The wedding party was so much fun to shoot. The girls were beautiful and the guys were…well you will see they were hilarious. Even though it was a very hot day, the energy and the laughter made you forget about the heat, and everyone’s personality really sparkled!
I was thrilled when Andrea and Matt asked me to take photos of their (second) wedding day. While they had planned a large summer wedding in Andrea’s hometown, unforeseen family circumstances gave them the chance to marry months earlier in the presence of all of their close family members. The second celebration was an amazing day filled with the joy of love (and quite a party!). I am so grateful I was there to be a part of it. Andrea and Matt have an infectious enthusiasm, and you cannot help but smile when with them. I will be uploading more photos from their day, but here are some shots of the reception set up and Andrea getting ready!
Since I am in a nostalgic mood, I have been thinking back to some of my favorite places and Vermont immediately came to mind. While living in Connecticut, my favorite sunny Saturday morning activity was driving north to Vermont and exploring the lush greenery, spectacular waterfalls, old covered bridges, and rolling hills. I loved crossing over the border, losing cell phone reception, and basking in the quiet beauty. Often I became so swept up in taking photos that when I finally looked up and turned on the GPS, I realized I was five or six hours from home! In Vermont, every nook seemed like a personal gift, and I always looked forward to the next sunny Saturday.
After looking through Crystal and Jeff’s Engagement and Wedding photos, I have been longing for everything Michigan. Last summer we were able to spend a few amazing days in the upper peninsula. It is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. One look at Lake Superior and the Pictured Rocks and you are transported to a magical land that seems very far away from the midwest.
