Traverse City Wedding Photography - Alex & Lauren

One of the most picturesque michigan wedding ceremonies I have ever seen. Alex and Lauren had their wedding and reception at their private residence in East Traverse Bay. It was a beautiful clear blue sky day with a lake michigan breeze (to add that dreamy blowy romantic look to the dress and veil) and plenty of apple cider and donuts. Alex and Lauren decided to have a more intimate wedding with just their closest family and friends there and it pared down the stress and amplified the love. In the relational sense Everyone knew each other and it felt like a family reunion meets a wedding day. Just perfect for enjoying all the people you most love. I can't speak highly enough of the graciousness of this couple and their family but I'm sure you can see the love and kindness of the people here in all the images. Enjoy the photographs and Thanks again guys: you are just the sweetest kindest people. Coordiation: A Day in May Awesome Coordation Rentals: American Rentals

I just love headshot portraits...

Alex doing a little pre wedding work.

The first look. Meet Hank (the huge bernard). THE most loving huge dog you will ever meet. He is the best dog you could ever ask for. He can stay at my house if you guys every get tired of him:)

They had an old type writer at the reception so guests could write messages.

The most amazing dream view of Traverse Bay.

Brother of the Father of the bride. Just like this shot of him. He just fits this environment perfectly with his sweater, and gaze, and red neckstrap by the sea.

Alex wanted me to get a shot of Lauren in her vegetable garden so we harvested some of their best.

Shot a little Fuji 400h on a contax 645 with 80 f/2.0 lens. Sorry for the geeky Camera stuff! Someone out there cares I hope! :)

They had the best cheeses!

Pierogies and Flank steak. What else could you want. :)

This looks like trouble!

This is what happens when you get too close to the bride and groom when they are cutting the cake.

Love these during the father daughter dance. Lauren really enjoyed herself.
