josh&anna | bay city, michigan wedding

Well, let the jury note that even in the bitter cold of January, it is still possible to have the best time ever at your wedding. :)

This delightfully chill and completely lovely wedding day simultaneously marked the end of our wedding season until the spring while also acting as our first wedding of 2016! Something about feeling like you’re closing one chapter while starting another is really exciting… especially when the sun is shining (on a day that called for all clouds all day!) and the couple you’re celebrating is the BEST and will even let you take them outside for photos ;) (J&A – you rule.) And can I just say that I love downtown Bay City? It’s full of fantastic colors and every block feels like a throwback to the 60s. Excited to go back and explore a little bit more when it’s not a hundred degrees of cold.

Josh&Anna – you two are wonderful. I always say that a wedding day celebration 100% takes on the flavor of the couple at hand (and often, their families too!), so this day was a true testament to you guys and how well you love the people around you. (Including us! :)) You are such a duo worth celebrating, and it was totally our joy. Thanks for having us along! Enjoy a peek into your sunshiny and not even a little bit chilly day ;)

All our love,

Alyssa&Drew

blake&marissa | muskegon, michigan wedding

There are so many lovely things I could say about this day… the silk flower secretly planted in her bouquet by her adoring mother from her own bouquet years ago… a celebratory walk back down the aisle to his parent’s wedding song ‘When I’m Sixty-Four’ (with a dad who is sixty-four :))… the perfect amount of fog that wrapped this already beautiful pair in that much more loveliness… it was all so wonderful.

And if you need more proof, just take note of how these two look at each other and laugh together while holding hands or dancing or just standing side by side. It’s always such a joy for me to witness, amidst the beautiful flurry of things that happen on a wedding day, a bride and groom who seem to totally just exhale and laugh and stare and obviously revel in what it’s all about and what’s happening. That’s the stuff right there. And I hope someday, should they have the joy of reaching sixty-four together, they can do a silly little dance to that fantastic song and remember it all over again like it was yesterday.

Blake&Marissa – thank you so much for having us be a part of your wonderful day! Your families and friends were so good to us, and that Hearthstone dinner was whoa dang amazing. You’re lovely, special people, and obviously totally perfect together. We’re so happy for you both! Enjoy a little peek into your foggy December day :)

All our love,

Alyssa&Drew
