When and immoveable object meets an unstoppable force, a love like Michelle and Paul’s is born.
OK, no I really don’t write that well. This was taken from a beautiful poem read at their ceremony. To know Michelle and Paul is to know what friendship, laughter and passion means. Together they embody a quiet, confident love that let me snap away all day during private moments and all the fun.
The Bridge Wedding Chapel has an amazing chandelier and beautiful light throughout.
Michelle handmade the flower girl’s dresses. There is nothing like a little tulle to make a little girl feel like a princess.
Love this moment captured during the first look.
Michelle opted to dance down the aisle, LOVE! Paul was happy to show off his moves as well.
I’m a firm believer in black and white for the key intimate moments. It just works so well.

After the ceremony, we headed to Cooley Gardens in Lansing for bridal party portraits. Cooley is such a hidden gem. I was going crazy with all the possibilities. The entire grounds looks like a scene out of the Secret Garden, one of my favorite books as a child.
Michelle is so gorgeous I can’t even handle it!
And Paul is not too bad himself.
Michelle also handmade all the centerpieces and flowers. The soft light inside the Grand Loft made for great detail shots.
How much do you love this cake? Or should I say mini cakes. Paul is a chef and the food and dessert did not disappoint. Basically the best food I’ve ever eaten at a wedding. Hands down.
Smooth moves on the dance floor. I think it’s pretty fair to say that Paul sweeps Michelle off her feet. Dance moves and all.
Michelle and Paul, I can’t thank you enough. Your love reminds me why I became a photographer. And that is one of the best gifts any client could give. Much appreciation, and have fun in Hawaii!
