South Haven, Michigan Wedding
When Erin contacted me last year to photograph her wedding, I was so honored. I photographed her sister’s wedding seven years earlier, and the best compliment to me is when clients come back….especially for weddings like this. It was so fun to go into their gorgeous family beach home in South Haven again for the getting ready part of the day. So much love, smiles and even some nerves of anticipation from Erin so eager to meet her groom, Joe.
Erin and Joe….I hope you love these images as your “sneak peak”…I will be in touch soon with all the images for you to fall in love with too!!
How he proposed….
We love to do weekend trips to the ocean, camp, walk our dog, Madi. We love hanging out with family, especially our nieces and nephews.
The best part for me (Erin) was exchanging our wedding vows. It was a grounding moment and a reminder of why everyone was there to support us. It was a moment when I realized Joe might know me better than I know myself. Joe – Vows, toasts, chatting, and dancing!
The wind 🙂 In my heart, the day was perfect. I definitely wish I hadn’t gotten so nervous, but I think that comes with the territory. Joe – More siestas!
For the bride – take moments to be alone. There are so many people around all the time, that you may forget that this day is more than a big party, but its a day for commitment to a person you will spend the rest of your days together. Joe – Plan “enough”and expect minor changes.
We’re heading to Indonesia! We plan on continuing our adventure lifestyle by sailing, diving, snorkeling, and hiking in Bali.
Creating a new life in Davis together. We didn’t know anyone and were far from family and friends. It taught it that we need to rely on each other, but also find ways to be independent.
For my 32 birthday , Joe and I sat at our kitchen table and rolled all of the change in the house so we could afford to go to Hamilton in San Francisco. It’s one thing I love about us – we adventure together whether is a date to the city to see a musical, or a last minute ticket to Paris for Thanksgiving.
Build community & family Be excellent to each other Listen and keep each other ‘young’.
I love this image of Joe with the kids….love the fidget spinner making an appearance!!
Instead of a wedding cake….they had an ice cream sandwich/sundae buffet! SO yummy, and with the famous South Haven, Michigan Sherman Ice Cream!!
I love Joe’s adventurous spirit, his selfless giving, his goofy personality, and his commitment to family, friends, and us.I love Erin’s big heart.
There is a cute story with this….proud of Erin for being brave and getting in that canoe! 😉
Some sweet intimate photographs as the sun was sneaking away into the horizon!
