Rachel + Nick // Michigan Orchard Wedding

These people are near and dear to my heart. Rachel is my husband’s cousin, so I was excited to capture her wedding celebration with Nick. They eloped earlier this year and had the “big wedding” in May at a beautiful orchard in Michigan. The weather was perfect–blue skies with wispy clouds for days and as the sunset was truly vibrant. I started out with the bride and her bridesmaids while they did hair and makeup before heading to the venue to put on dresses. The whole day was filled with emotion as the joining of the two families was celebrated. The couple wrote their own vows, and Rachel could barely get through hers–I was able to catch a fleeting moment as Nick wiped a tear from her cheek. Using vintage and personal touches to the decor made this a perfect barn wedding. There were tons of adorable kids doing cute and hilarious photo-worthy things. A favorite surprise was at the end of Rachel and Nick’s first dance, the wedding party came out and attacked them with silly string. Nick was covered head to toe. These two are obviously so in love, and they are going to be welcoming a sweet baby boy later this fall. Our whole family is ecstatic for them! Congratulations xoxo
