Southern Michigan Wedding Photographer // Paul & Isabel – Married at Fernwood Botanical Gardens!
Paul and Isabel planned a gorgeous winter wedding in Southern Michigan….but then Michigan does what it tends to do….and the weather changed last minute. The entire state was hit with a heat wave and all of our snow melted, leaving us with zero white frosted pine trees to use as a beautiful backdrop for their portraits. Thankfully, these two were just about as laid back as could be and just couldn’t wait to be Mr & Mrs! That made my job about a thousand times easier!
Isabel has been working with us on our photo team for several years now so this day was such a special one. 2018 is shaping up to be a hard year to beat!
Enjoy these photos of the happiest couple ever!
I loved Isabel’s dress. The plunging neckline and delicate lace. So pretty!
Time for the first look!
I think Paul approves.
So, so gorgeous Isabel.
They seriously laughed all day. What a perfect start to a marriage.
Purple socks and cowboy boots.
The flowers were so pretty….arranged by Isabel’s aunt.
Time to get married!
They were such troopers sticking it out in the cold weather for photos. Hopefully you can’t see Isabel’s goosebumps in the photos 😉
Pretty birch details.
And the two very last photos of the day….Isabel and Paul snapped photos of one another. It only made sense… Congratulations you two! We love you guys and are beyond happy for you!
