Jenn & Brent, Wedding.september, 2016.

Jenn is one of my dearest friends and a strong supporter of my photography. I am so thankful to Jenn and Brent for giving me the opportunity to photograph their wedding in Michigan. Since they are both from Michigan, having the wedding in their home state was a no-brainer. Jenn and Brent are well traveled and love the Netherlands so this beautiful venue in Holland, Michigan was the perfect setting for their big day! They also had a beautiful travel-themed reception. All throughout their wedding day, I simply could not stop smiling at their love. Everything was beautiful from the hand written vows, to the sunset, to the parts of the day unique to this couple. Perhaps my favorite part was when the groom’s family gathered together to sing a song and stamp their feet welcoming the bride into their family, their “stamp of approval.” It was all so fun! These two just jive so well together and I love continuing to see them grow together through life’s adventures.

Here is a suggested song to listen to as you peruse this post that was also played during Jenn & Brent’s first dance.
