Michigan State University Wedding | Liz & Marty’s Winter Wedding

Marty and Liz are such a fun couple!  I knew their Michigan State University wedding day would be full of laughter and so much love after their engagement session this fall, but I had no idea how many tears of joy, hugs and true smiles would be shared.  It surely was a day to be celebrated!

We started the day getting ready at the Marriott in Lansing and shortly after moved to the Michigan State University Alumni Chapel for finishing touches and their ceremony.  The day was absolutely gorgeous with sunshine and perfect December weather.  You seriously couldn’t ask for anything better.  Even if it wasn’t as perfect as it was, I know these two would have been just as happy.  They were becoming husband and wife that day after all!!

Here are some (ok….many) of my favorites from all the activities that the day held.  I hope it brings you right back to their day!

I’m SO in love with her dress!!

And these flowers….holy smokes!  These are stunning.

Isn’t this the cutest thing?!  Ring bearer’s and his dad’s shoes…

First look with Liz’s dad.  Such a sweet moment.

These bridal portraits are so pretty with this light.

Time to get married!


We walked straight outside to grab some portraits before the sun went down.

Ahhh….these flowers!

All of their portraits were taken during the golden hour….gorgeous!

I know the photo on bottom-right isn’t in focus….but I think it is just gorgeous anyway!

These pops of red from the roses are SO pretty!

While I was at the reception taking photos of the beautiful decor, Kristi was with the wedding party taking a quick stop at the capitol in Lansing.  Isn’t it so pretty lit up at night?!

What an amazing day!
