That’s Joe. Hey girl…friendly, outgoing, and as we learned, a man of incredible strength and perseverance.
Katie. She’s funny, she’s sweet, and you can’t help but love her immediately.
When we first met them in Chicago for their engagement pictures, we had a great time, even though it was a short time. We were excited for their wedding day and to meet their friends and family. We rolled up to Katie’s mom’s home in Ludington where the girls were getting ready. Sadly, Dan had to leave to join the boys at the Mitten Bar for lunch and a micro-brew. I had to hang out with some energetic and fun girls during the hair & makeup time. Fun for both of us!
After a sweet ceremony and a couple of “i-dos” (you only need two), some introductions as a new man & wife, we whisked the wedding party away to some beautiful locations around Ludington, including the beautiful lakeshore, where the guys performed their traditional beer shotgun. As rain started to come down, we packed up and headed to Jamesport Brewery, where Katie and Joe had their very first date. A round, a toast, and then it was off to the reception…..but not before a stop where my brave bride jumped out in the rain for me for some lovely umbrella-covered pictures on a dock. Totally swoon-worthy.
Just before the downpour hit and thunder and lightning crashed, we got a few pics of Joe & his boys on the golf course – golf is a big deal for this guy – it’s his profession!
The reception was full of Katie’s details – she really poured herself into the yellow & grey theme in all the details of this reception. It was absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed a tasty dinner with them, lots of fun dancing, and Katie and I finally got to wobble together!
It was a fabulous day. Katie and Joe, we loved every minute of it and look forward to when we can celebrate with you again!
Lots of love – Lynell & Dan
