I had the pleasure of going back out to Michigan in October for Jennifer & David’s wedding. I had a blast and I am so happy for these two. They are one of the sweetest couples I’ve met and I am so glad they found each other. Grab your tissues, you WILL need them!
We started out at Profiles Hair Design & Tanning on US-23 in Oscoda, MI. You all did a fabulous job!
Jennifer and her sister Danielle getting their hair done.
They did their own makeup, and they did fabulous. The book on the bottom is a book they had at the salon. One of the bridesmaids wasn’t sure how she wanted her hair, we recommended she do the “shells in the hair” look but ultimately, she went with that lovely bun on the left (and no shells).
Why yes you are adorable!
Front and back view of their hair, love it!
We then headed over to the church to get ready. The ceremony was held at Sacred Heart Church in Oscoda, MI.
I borrowed Jen’s shoes and the rings for some shots in the church.
The guys got there so while the girls got dressed, I got some shots with them.
David and his best man. These are the kinds of shots we got. I love when the guys are totally chill.
Let’s do this!
That’s David with his aunt. She is a huge part of his life, so of course she had the honor of pinning on the boutonniere.
And then I headed back to the ladies’ room to get some shots before the ceremony.
So much love in this family!!!
Ok…this is the first Wedding I’ve been to with so much emotion. There were A LOT of tears, but they were happy tears (the best kind!). I did not cry (I was surprised since I tend to cry, especially during the first dances). But you could feel all the love in this church, the priest even said “Wow, that was awesome”. Such an amazing couple!
After communion (it was a Catholic ceremony), they went over to the other side to pray and I got this shot.
First married kiss!
Seriously you two? ADORABLE.
I love that 1)They were willing to do a “YAY!” shot with the marriage certificate and 2) David gave Jen bunny ears while she signed.
Looking awesome ladies!
Oh yes, THIS HAPPENED. (They love football).
And of course you have to have a jumping shot!
And yes David wanted to do this shot too!
I like this one, sunglasses plus shoes and flowers.
Candid shot but I LOVE it.
Ok you two, stop being so amazing!
Seriously, they are naturals.
They had beautiful flowers as well.
Fun bridal parties=the best weddings.
Again, the guys got some serious air!
After we got some shots on the beach, we headed down to Au Gres for the reception!
The fall colors were so pretty! Awesome timing. The reception was held at Huron Breeze Golf Club in Au Gres, MI.
Such a beautiful bride, Jen!
The bride and her bridesmaids.
Bridal party go!
Love the setting, so colorful and gorgeous.
This was in the hallway in honor of David’s dad who had passed away several years ago. Such a beautiful way to honor him and I’m sure everyone know he was there in spirit.
I loved the decorations, especially the paper latterns!
They finally made their big entrance (after checking on the game which was showing on the TV in the lobby, I’m teasing you guys !)
This was at the start of the toasts. He congratulated them and then said how happy David’s dad would be and how he would have been there and this was a really touching moment as you can see from the photos. Beautiful.
I’ll assume this took the cake as the best Wedding present ever. One of David’s friends worked some magic and got his favorite player from the Detroit Red Wings to sign a jersey for them. How awesome is that?!
I’m trying to make it my thing to take a picture with the bride & groom so here you go…silly people unite!
This was during a part of the reception where the DJ essentially told Jennifer & David’s love story and it was such a cute story. They’ve actually known each other since grade school!
Their first dance, so cute.
Jen dancing with her dad. I love the father/daughter dance and these kinds of shots are exactly why.
David danced with his aunt, so touching as she has always been there for him and is a huge part of his life.
I love that Jen watched them dance from the side.
Jen did a fun twist on the bouquet toss. She attached a gift card to Victoria’s Secret to it!
David loves hockey and proposed to Jen at a hockey game, so he had to do the garter toss with hockey gear. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
He attached the garter to a football with a Cabella’s gift card, how fun!
They also did a candy toss for the kids!
After all that fun, the dancing got underway! They were a fun bunch.
They wanted a group shot, so we called everyone out to the dance floor. Thank you so much Jen & David for being awesome and having me at your Wedding, you’re an amazing couple and I wish you all the best!!
