Lindsey & Sean - Castle Wedding in Charlevoix - October 20th

Tale as old as time...

Sean and Lindsey met as kids at age ten on their first day of fifth grade elementary. But wait, it gets better; They both clearly remember one another as their first crush. While they possessed all the foundations of a great love during their early years, the strength and tenacity of that love was soon to be fortified in the wake of a tragic event that would change their lives forever. On a June day in 2012, the day before Lindsey's graduation open house, she and Sean were in a major car accident. The aftermath of this event left Lindsey especially with serious health trauma and a long, difficult road to recovery ahead. During those years fighting to return to normalcy, Sean remained by Lindsey's side as her rock and her biggest supporter. As with all great stories, the hard times gave way to a brighter future, and two stronger hearts ready to face it.

Their lives and identities had long been indelibly intertwined, but in 2016, Sean decided it was time to embark on the next chapter of their story. That November, on a much anticipated trip to the Happiest Place on Earth with their two best friends, Sean proposed to Lindsey in a picture-perfect moment in front of Disney's Cinderella Castle. For the next year, anticipation built to a crescendo as they planned for the big day that would mark the beginning of this new chapter in their lives. Majestic Castle Farms was the setting for the celebration, and the autumn day was an unseasonably warm one with sun bathed trees in full-colored splendor. Lindsey and Sean welcomed their friends and family to a lively celebration full of thoughtful little touches in homage to their mutual love for all things Disney. And as the saying goes, the prince and the princess "lived happily ever after."

Katie & Greg - The Peninsula Room - September 16, 2017

Chicago natives Katie & Greg are the quintessential power couple. With all the congeniality and good taste you'd expect of a couple of die-hard Chicago sports fans, and a deep and genuine connection between them that irresistibly draws others in.

Katie met Greg on Thanksgiving six years ago in one of their favorite Chicago haunts. Their personalities made it easy to strike up a conversation, and their many commonalities have kept that conversation going since. They began their journey as best friends, and their friendship is the core of who they are together. As Katie so simply put it, "We are the best part of each other's day". 

The two made their vows to each other on a warm summer afternoon along the water of Grand Traverse Bay, surrounded by dear family and friends. The day marked an idyllic beginning to a beautiful chapter in their lives.

Ceremony & Reception: The Peninsula Room, Traverse City, Michigan

Susanna & Jared - Greenville, Michigan, September 9

Down to earth by nature and both wonderfully congenial people, Susanna and Jared were destined to fit together as effortlessly as peanut butter and chocolate. It was in 2013 that their paths first crossed in an unexpected way. Susanna was a banker at Chase, and Jared was filling out a deposit slip in her branch when she saw him for the first time. Jared came in many times after that, never speaking to Susanna but always making a point to smile at her as he walked past. One day, following his usual routine, Jared got as far as the front of the bank before stopping and turning around to walk straight up to Susanna's desk. Visibly shaking, he at last mustered the courage to ask her out.

4 years later, they remain head-over-heels for each other. The two share an infectious sense of humor, a love for their pups, a strong bond with their families, and an adoration for beautiful Wabasis Lake, where Jared grew up and where their beautiful home is located on the water's edge. It only seemed fitting to start this new chapter together on the shores of this special place.

September 9th was bright and cloudless but perfectly cool as Susanna and Jared exchanged their vows by the shimmering water. The celebration that followed was as relaxed and welcoming as the bride and groom themselves: savory BBQ dinner, lawn games and bonfires, a lively dance floor, and a boat ride to the sand bar in the late evening light.

Lindsay & Ben - Bohemian Backyard Wedding in Traverse City, MI

Lindsay and Benjamin share an uncommon bond. Their love story is one of deep commitment to each other, a strong foundation of support and faith from their families, and a testament to the faithfulness of God. 

As children, Lindsay and Benjamin grew up as acquaintances in the same circle of families. But it wasn't until later into adulthood that their friendship would develop into something deeper. Both of them entered careers as firefighters, working in separate departments, and eventually rekindling their friendship over their shared profession. Benjamin left home for 3 and a half years on active duty with the Marines, and when he returned, they began dating. Eight months after that, Benjamin was on one knee in the snow at the top of a ski hill, asking Lindsay to be his wife.

Their August wedding day was, by contrast, warm and golden-hued. Lindsay and her girls wore ethereal gown and flower crowns, and the family home was thoughtfully decorated with little terrariums, generous blooms, gold-tipped feathers, and an abundance of magical twinkle lights.

Kathleen & Paul - Wedding on the Isle of Anglesey, Wales

Once upon a time, on an Isle in the Irish Sea, there lived a lovely and spirited Welsh princess with a heart made of gold. Her little daughter was her whole world, and they lived contentedly with their family and animals among the rolling green hills of their kingdom. Then one day, she caught the eye of a dashing suitor from the south with two little princesses of his own. With the eloquent prose and persuasion of a poet, he crafted the words that would be his first introduction to the woman of his dreams: “Hey there”.

From their wit and humor to their generous spirits, Kathleen and Paul were destined to be the perfect match. Add to the mix their three precious daughters with giant personalities of their own, and you have a recipe for one seriously wonderful blended family. All 7 of us met for the first time the evening before the wedding day. Though we’d been long-distance friends for about a year, it felt like we’d just picked up where we left of on a lifetime friendship. The weekend’s festivities included preparations at the family cottage, a magical ceremony at “The Church in the Sea”, 12th century wonder St Cwyfans, and revelry in tents on the lawn, glowing with warm lights late into the night.

Bouquets grown locally and designed by Emmy's Flowers. Floral displays for ceremony and reception by Helen Starley.

Olivia & Craig - A Chateau Wedding in South France

A radiant London lady and a sandy-haired gent from Loch Lomond. With nearly 500 miles between them, their chances of meeting certainly weren't betting odds. Yet it wasn't until they had both simultaneously jetted 5,000 miles from home on the same week in summer 2013, that they found themselves staring at one another across a buffet table in Cancun, Mexico. Olivia and Craig would spend the rest of that pivotal day together, and by evening, Craig says he knew beyond a doubt that she was the girl for him. 

4 years of (substantially more picturesque) dates later, the two of them have secured a house in London and built a life together that they are absolutely enamored with. To celebrate the beginning of their marriage, they and their closest friends and family gathered at Chateau la Gauterie for the wedding week. Just the right amount secluded and every bit elegant, the chateau in Southwest France's rolling countryside made for the perfect backdrop for Olivia and Craig's intimate and exquisite affair. Where the days are bright and wine is plentiful, they began a happy new chapter in their lives together.

Naomi & Jody - Wedding in Honor, Michigan

The Scene: 

A little red brick playhouse in small-town Northern Michigan, situated at a cross street in view of the shimmering bay. It's 2013, and the newly assembled cast of Les Misérables is beginning to get acquainted before rehearsals. In the midst of an introductory exercise, Jody decides to confidently approach Naomi, takes a blurry selfie with her, and initiates a conversation that would continue for the rest of their lives.

During those months of production, Naomi and Jody would become inseparable, drawn in by the other's courageous openness and warmth. When Les Misérables wrapped up, the love story was just beginning. Years later and closer than ever, these two hold each other up with determination and respect, and the friendship they share is perhaps the most apparent thing about them. They effortlessly draw those around them into that friendship, and it's easy to fall in love with these two! What an honor to share such an important day in their story!

Caitlin & Joe - Wedding in Nyon, Switzerland

A pair of lovers in a world gone mad, a nation composed only of themselves—a nation of two.

Kurt Vonnegut's poetic words hold a special significance in Caitlin and Joe's shared story. It all began in a picturesque little town in Switzerland overlooking Lake Geneva and surrounded by rolling vineyards. Here in Nyon, the two met in high school and were soon to become totally inseparable. For over a decade since, across distances, through great loss and hard fought victory, they have immersed themselves in the tremendous pursuit of loving one another well. When we first had the chance to meet Caitlin & Joe, taking a drive through the Swiss countryside, I asked what they most enjoyed doing together. Joe's thoughtful response was, "we love just existing in each other's company". To anyone who has observed these two, the truth of this is evident: Their love for one another is effortless, and their admiration for each other is tangible.

The first of July came warm and golden-hued. Energy and excitement was in the air as we arrived at the lovely chateau covered in ivy. What a perfect day to celebrate the love of two incredible people!

Heather & Brett - Wedding at Aurora Cellars, Leelanau Peninsula

"Do I know you?" These were Brett's first words to the woman who would turn out to be the girl of his dreams, who would consequently change his entire life in ways nobody thought possible. His next words were to ask this girl to dance, and fortuitously, she did. Heather had just made the move to Northern Michigan for a new job, and Brett was returning to the same town for his third season working aboard the Tall Ship Manitou. This chance meeting was in May of 2012, and over the course of the following summer, Heather and Brett spent every spare moment together. They explored the area's wineries, enjoyed the beaches together, and became quite taken with one another. When fall came around that year, the time Brett would usually have left Michigan until next season, he stayed to be near Heather. 

It wasn't until June of 2016, on a surprise getaway to upstate New York, that Brett proposed to Heather with a beautiful family heirloom diamond. Exactly a year after that night on the balcony of empty Bolt Castle, an excited crowd of friends and family gathered on the sunny lawn of Leelanau's Aurora Cellars to witness the two lovers give their vows to each other.  Brett and Heather had the entire group wiping away tears along with them as they read their heartfelt vows to one another in the shade of a giant willow tree. What a perfect day for a beautiful beginning!

Natalie & Ian - Loch Lomond, Scotland

There are few settings on earth that compare with the majesty and lore of Scotland's famed Loch Lomond. This place exists in its own ongoing fairytale. On a uniquely warm and bright spring day, we had the incredible opportunity to step into the magic for the glorious wedding celebration of Natalie & Ian. Here on the bonnie banks, at the illustrious Cameron House estate, the two "tied the knot" in true Gaelic tradition. 

Vibrant and witty and a true generous heart, Natalie was born and raised in her beloved native Scotland. She moved to the States 11 years ago to pursue her passion for field hockey. In December of 2011, while visiting friends in Virginia, she was introduced to a certain Ian Holder, who caught her attention with his warmth, humor, and thoughtfulness. Their first date was at a little wine bar called Press 626 in Norfolk, and both felt an instant deep connection between them. They maintained a growing relationship long distance over the next two years, until Natalie received a lucky job offer in Norfolk in 2013. Two more years of shared adventures, traveling, and investing in each other led to one Autumn evening in 2015. On a bridge in Norfolk overlooking the shimmering water of Elizabeth River, Ian got down on one knee and asked Natalie for forever together.

Cameron House was the natural choice to begin their married lives together, since it has been one of Natalie's favorite places for as long as she can remember. On Ian's first visit to Scotland, Natalie introduced him to the lovely estate and grounds at the edge of Lomond's shimmering banks, and he instantly became equally taken with the spot. Grand Cameron House, with its rich history and unprecedented elegance, was bathed in sunlight and abuzz with excited energy on the morning of the 26th of May when we arrived for the festivities. It was to be the day of a lifetime!
