Diana + Jonathan are Married!

When I heard from Diana that her wedding would be at her parent’s house, I was envisioning beautiful personal touches and a gorgeous backyard ceremony. I got alllll that and then some! When we arrived at Diana’s childhood home, it was outfitted with big white tents and gorgeous landscaping. Not to mention the resort style pond/pool in the back yard. It was over 95 degrees that day and I was just 7 weeks pregnant…I thought about shooting most of the ceremony from in the water. But….I didn’t. I’m so, so, so thankful for my Michigan partner-in-crime Karen of Studio K2. (Karen also shot my wedding!!) Thank you for helping me capture this day, you are the best. Please enjoy a few of my favorites from Diana and Jonathan’s beautiful day.

These are two of my favorite Dress photographs I’ve ever taken…ever.

If you are a bride considering your wedding photography coverage, I always suggest having your photographer there in time to catch a few images of you with your girlfriends getting ready among the makeup, eyelashes, hairspray, excitement and laughter. They will be a few of your favorite photos.

Diana, I love this photograph of you. I know you wish you were smiling…but I’m glad you aren’t. You look BEAUTY-full and the emotion behind this image is telling.

I loved the groomsmen’s suits!!! You guys looked so handsome!!!

And soon…it was time to get married.

Tears!!! I love Jonathan’s sweet and happy smile seeing his beautiful bride for the first time.

MARRIED!!!!

BEST wedding party!!! Talk about all around hotties.

Y’all did good!

Two more of my faaaaves!!!

I emailed Diana with a few questions about her day for their blog post. I asked what Jonathon’s favorite thing about Diana was (in his words) and this is what I got: “she loves me unconditionally, even when I don’t deserve it.” Ummm…I teared up.

Diana: Same question: “Jonathan is a pretty serious guy to the rest of the world (which I love of course because he’s genuine, charismatic, and intelligent) but I get the unique opportunity to see his playful, adolescent and vulnerable side come out around me, his family and his closest friends.” Perfection, friends.

And then…it was time to party.

I love this black and white image SO MUCH!! It was almost your sneak peek. 😉

EVERYONE danced!! And I mean everyone. I LOVE weddings like this!!

The rain was coming down when Karen and I left the party. We snapped this from our car!

Congrats you two on a simply BEAUTIFUL wedding day. The love in your families is admirable and I can’t wait to see where life takes you. xoxo
