Will & Michelle: Springtime Wedding in Houghton Lake (Mid Michigan Wedding Photographer)

May 3, 2014

The first wedding of the season! Hooray! I love wedding season so much and was super excited to kick it off with Will and Michelle in Houghton Lake. I've photographed two other weddings in this location and it's always something new. The 'new' this time around was rain. Sad, but we made the most of it. Will and Michelle were surrounded by friends and family and they had an amazing day despite the weather. Plus, we had multiple double rainbows show up between rain squalls, and there's nothing like a little luck on your wedding day.

Now that wedding season has started, I'm thrilled to be back doing what  love most. Thanks to Will ad Michelle for helping me kick off the season with such a great day and a fun party. Here's to 2014!
