Roy & Brooke (Ontonagon, MI Wedding)

 

They’re married!!!

So much happiness for Roy and Brooke and their little family! It was the most joyful and beautiful day on Saturday to celebrate their lifetime commitment to each other! It might have been their big day but their kids Ryan and Paisley had so many important roles and were included in everything. I loved seeing the relationship between Brooke & Paisley and Roy & Ryan. The getting ready images are the sweetest with the kids included!

Everyone hung out together all morning and got ready at the same location. It gave the day such a relaxed feel!

I’ll always love first looks! It’s so special for the couple to be able to share a real moment together without everyone watching and gives time for tons of portrait options!

The house was right on the beach and it was a GORGEOUS day! The waves were big and it was pretty windy making my posing directions kind of difficult to hear! haha! Picture me yelling across the beach with hair blowing in my face “ok now kiss!!” haha!! But it was so worth it!

Time to get married!

After the ceremony we made our way to Houghton for the reception. We stopped for a few portraits on the side of the road and I’m so glad we did! The colors were JUST starting to peek out and it was fun to include some in photos!

The Bonfire Steakhouse at the Magnuson Franklin Square Inn hosted the reception. Bonfire always has the most delicious food and it didn’t disappoint!

Brooke’s nephew Ollie happened to be turning one on the same day! They had everyone sing to him and he even got his own cupcake with a candle! So precious!

Little miss Paisley was the star of the dance floor! She would walk up to whoever was dancing and put her arms up! How could you resist that little face!

Taylored Weddings did the reception and they kept the dance floor hopping all night! Kaylene was the DJ and she had the best energy! Paisley loved her too!

Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your special day!
