Clare and Bryce’s Bare Knuckle Farm Wedding 29.09.2014

Surely this super sweet wedding will make your day.

Clare and Bryce live in New York, but got engaged on North Manitou Island so they knew they wanted to return to Northern Michigan for a Northport wedding.

They decided to wed and hold their reception at the charming Bare Knuckle Farm in Northport.

Dan and Melissa Photography captured their wedding and tell us, “My oh my, this wedding was amazing. Meet the incredibly sweet, lovely, beautiful couple, Bryce and Clare. They were truly meant for each other and madly in love. Adoration was written all over their faces and you could see they adored their family and friends as well. This entire group had an enormous bond of love.

The weather was just right and the happy couple enjoyed every second of their wedding surrounded by those they care so deeply for. Clare said they ‘love to dance party’ and she was right. I don’t think we have ever seen anyone enjoy a dance party more than these people [and] it was fantastic to watch. You couldn’t help but want to join in the fun. We had a blast getting to know Bryce and Clare.”

Shelly and Randy’s Arizona Wedding 22.09.2014

This wedding has a modern charm to it that’s simply irresistible.

The love-happy couple behind the wedding live in Phoenix and met two years ago via Match.com. Randy is a Phoenix fire fighter and Shelly is a real estate agent.

They tied the knot and held their modern wedding reception at The Clayton on the Park in Arizona.

Gretchen Wakeman Photography captured their day and tells us, “I wheeled my camera bag up to the bridal suite. Before I knocked, I was approached by the Groom who was also entering the bridal suite. I was confused. Did I have the wrong room number? The Groom. In the bridal suite? They were getting ready for their wedding together, in the same room. I smiled. I already liked them. Shelly and Randy did things their own way. I was led downstairs by the Bride to set up in the room where she would be having her make up done. The Groom began getting ready upstairs. The relaxed feel of the room made it clear that [their wedding] was a celebration.”

Kelsey and James Whistler Wedding 15.09.2014

After seeing the first couple of photos from this winter wedding we were hooked.

Kelsey and James recently tied the knot at beautiful Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Center in Whistler, British Columbia.

Instead of letting the cold deter them, they embraced the chilly weather and the gorgeous little village of Whistler.

The bride tells us why they picked the location, “Jimmy and I are both incredibly social people with tight family bonds and long-time friendships. When it came time to make decisions on where to host our big day, Whistler Village felt like the perfect place that would allow for quality time with our favourite people even in the thick of hosting a wedding. We really treasure the amazing sense of community the village naturally creates, and anytime we went anywhere we ran into our guests. We saw friends and family while tubing at the tube park, on our many trips to Purebread bakery (reason enough to visit Whistler) and while drinking beers at apres-ski. It didn’t hurt that for most of our loved ones it was an excuse for a mini-vacation from nearby Seattle to one of the most beautiful snow-capped mountain backdrops the world has to offer.”

Kelsey goes on to say, “This same feeling of community was important for us to create at the wedding. There definitely wasn’t a theme, but more a vision to have it feel like we were having everyone over for a family style dinner with lots of great candlelight and rustic yummy bites. Little touches like our guests standing in a close circle around us for the ceremony, oysters on the half-shell during cocktail hour, and cafe lights strung behind the head table made it just that much more special.”
