This August I was privileged to shoot a wedding for my sweet friend Alli and her Sam. These two are the sweetest couple and their love just SHINES. Their vows were some of the most beautiful words I’ve heard exchanged in a ceremony, and Sam’s reaction when Alli came down the isle was priceless. I had tears in my eyes and that doesn’t often happen. We see a lot of weddings and this one was just full of real, raw emotion.

They were married at Stafford’s Bay View Inn in Petoskey. It is the sweetest little venue, just steps from the water.

Sam and Alli built and moved into their new home three days before their wedding. I don’t know how they did all the planning and new home fun at the same time- but they did it! They’re now married and loving life in their new home and I couldn’t be happier for this new chapter for them!

I’m so happy for you friends. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this day and to document it for you. We know you’ll love on these photos and video for years and years to come.
