E & S Get Married!

{Michigan Wedding Photographer|Michigan Destination Wedding Photographer|Florida Wedding Photography}

I was a very blessed girl in the last week of December.  I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to help photograph a beautiful outdoor wedding with the talented Allison of Allison Hilyer Photography.

We were blessed with a gorgeous, warm December day, with just enough breeze so that it wasn’t too hot, and just enough clouds to filter out the harsh light, but leave us with a gorgeous late afternoon sky.  The wedding party was a lot of fun, the setting beautiful, the children delightful, the reception one heck of a party.  E & S were so sweet, and so utterly in love, it was a sight to behold to see them together as a married couple at last.

Congratulations and best wishes to the wonderful couple!  It was an honor to share your day with you.

After the wedding I had the very, very, very rare chance to spend a day completely free from responsibility, cold, and little ankle-biters.  Call me obnoxious for posting constant instagram check-ins describing all my self pampering, but seriously, it had been for-EVAH since I’d last traveled without a young child.  6 – almost 7 – years to be exact!
