Joe and Caroline’s wedding was the kind of day that photographers dream about. Thoughtful details, heartfelt ceremony, welcoming family and friends, adorable kids, breathtaking locations, dramatic skies, a warm glowing sunset, an adventurous couple, and of course so much love!! I know that this day meant so much to Joe and Caroline, and their families as well. It was beautiful to not only see a couple come together, but a family also now that Joe’s lovely daughters can officially call Caroline their step-mom!
When Joe and Caroline explained their vision to me I was hooked. They wanted to have a super intimate party where they could spend quality time with their loved ones while watching their girls and other kiddos play. They wanted some amazing handcrafted details and personal touches. I guess maybe if I had to put a name on it I’d call it “Campfire Chic.” Maybe I just made that up. 🙂 But either way, it turned out exactly like they described.
The details were indeed incredibly personal. The bunting was sewn by her mother. The flowers were purchased an arranged by a vendor at a local farmers’ market. Even the fabric for the table runners will be used by her mother to make a quilt for Joe and Caroline to have in their home.
It was also wonderful to have so much time to capture the beauty of the locations Joe and Caroline chose. We started at the amazing home they rented on Lake Michigan where Joe and Caroline shared a private first-look on the beach before we headed over to the park for their ceremony and party. The day was magic and I simply love how their story unfolded. Thank you for allowing me the honor of telling that story Joe & Caroline! Wishing you a lifetime of love!
