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!

Seth & Fei {The Veranda @ The Whitcomb | St. Joesph, Michigan}

We met Seth and Fei in 2015 for their engagement session at Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana. {You can view their engagement session here.} Seth and Fei both went to Culver and also met there and fell in love! They are true high school sweethearts!

When we first met them we saw right away the love they shared. They were so sweet and playful with each other and they are so natural in front of the camera. We roamed around Culver, hearing their sweet stories about their time there. After spending time with them, we just knew their wedding was going to be awesome! 

This past July, after 7 years of being together, they tied the knot!  Although it was scorcher, it was such a sweet and beautiful day! A lot of Fei's family came all the way from China to be there. How wonderful they could all be together for such a joyous occasion! 

Before Fei walked down the isle, she had a surprise for her soon to be husband. In Chinese tradition, the groom and his groomsmen have to play door games before the groom is allowed to see his soon to be bride. Seth and the majority of the guests had no idea! It was pretty hilarious and so unique to any wedding we have photographed! 

The rest of the the evening was filled with love, laughter, and lots and lots of dancing! This crowd was so fun and everyone was so very sweet! Such a beautiful day with such a beautiful and sweet couple!!

And can we give Fei some mad props for creating ALL of the details including the amazing cake! Say what? The girl is talented!!
