Marty & Kayla: The Perfect Summer Wedding (Mid Michigan Wedding Photographer)

August 19, 2017

Wow, it has been so busy this month, but I'm keeping up as best I can on wedding editing. They are so nicely spaced out this year, it's not too bad, but with limited time to edit (two kids are no joke!), it's a little tricky. This wedding was up in Mt. Pleasant back in August and everything was just perfect! The place the ladies got ready at was adorable and had so many wonderful spots for photos. The ceremony was lovely and we were able to take a ton of group photos too. Though the bus stopped working at a gas station, it didn't hold the reception up much at all. It was at Marty's family's property and was just perfect. Lots of cute little details and fun things for guests to do.

Marty and Kayla are very focused on their faith and they included Marty's son Kaleb in everything to do with the wedding. Kayla even had vows to him as well. They gave him his own set of dog tags (Marty was in the military) and the look on his face was priceless. He wore them for the rest of the day! It was a beautiful day filled with happy, amazing people and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it.

And now, time for some photos!
