Jake & Kaylea | The Milestone Barn

We headed to Michigan for Jake & Kaylea's beautiful country wedding at the gorgeous Milestone Barn in Bannister, MI. Only 50 minutes from Lansing, MI and about an hour and half from Grand Rapids, MI! We never shot at this barn before and absolutely fell in love with it! 

I met Jake and Kaylea a year ago in Grand Rapids when I photographed their engagement session. These two are awesome in front of the camera and were so great to work with! Check out their engagement session here and learn more about Jake and Kaylea! 

These two had planned to get married in the fall to avoid the heat but being that the weather sometimes seems to play games with us, it was the HOTTEST day of the year. Pushing nearly 100! Despite the blazing temps, Jake and Kaylea's day was so beautiful. The Milestone Barn was a perfect backdrop for their pure Michigan country wedding! Check out their wedding day slideshow here!

Alex & Chloe {Niles, MI}

Alex & Chloe's special day was just about perfect! They decided to get married on Chloe's parent's property in Niles, Michigan along the river that Chloe spent a lot of her childhood. This beautiful outdoor wedding  was filled with love, smiles, and sweet moments. These two were so wonderful to work with and their love for each other is so special and sweet! We are so thankful we were able to capture their amazing day!

Stonegate Manor {Styled Wedding} Benton Harbor, Michigan

Back in October, my sister and I teamed up with some very incredible, very talented venders in the area and had our first styled shoot! And as most REAL wedding days go, nothing went quite as we planned it ...

It rained. From start to finish. And not a light rain. It was a torrential downpour! And while that would normally have caused us a few heart palpitations, we decided that this was just another chance to challenge ourselves. Isn't that how it goes ... When you have an idea of how something should go, it always goes a completely different way. And sometimes better than what you imagined when you had it all planned out!

Grateful for the amazing team of people we had the privilege to work with, and if you are a bride to be, we encourage you to check out these AMAZING vendors!! Not only are they incredibly talented, they are so darn kind, and so wonderful to work with! So go on! Check em' out!
