Meet Kristen and Joe
Kristen and Joe are two of the nicest people. They love each other but in addition to that, they have so much more love to give. Their friends and family have such incredible relationship. In a world of disconnectedness, Kristen and Joe are a model of how to keep friendships locked in iron clad bonds.
Kristen and Joe
Kristen and Joe got married on the West side of Michigan. I had been waiting for this wedding for a long time. Kristen and I met at a restaurant last year mid-distance between Lansing and St. Joseph and since then our ideas had been ruminating. She had an awesome vision about this wedding and I couldn’t wait to photograph the couple with Lake Michigan as a backdrop.They stayed at The Boulevard Inn & Bistro in St. Joseph, their ceremony was at St Paul’s Lutheran in Stevensville, MI, and their reception was at Shadowland Ballroom in St. Joseph. Meanwhile, I got to sneak away with the bride, groom, and the wedding party to take photos along Lake Michigan. Of course, Kristen was wearing her wedding dress and got VIP treatment wherever we went; including a police escort through a closed section of the beach. These are just some of the perks of being a beautiful bride and groom.
This whole day was an incredible representation of both their personalities and style. It was a pleasure to photograph their story and I hope you enjoy looking through these moments as much as we enjoyed photographing them.
