Michigan Wedding Photographer | Melanie and Benjamin

I am in love with this wedding! Sunshine, light breeze and a wonderful couple in love to photograph. Benjamin and Melanie were married at his family’s Centennial Farm in Southwest Michigan. Benjamin and Melanie spent months planning each detail of their beautiful DIY wedding. This wedding was handmade with love, from the upcycled china, lace doilies, pom-pons strung on the trees and even the delicious chocolate cupcakes.

A time to pray and hug the nerves away…and a time for beautiful portraits. westmichiganweddingphotographer-34westmichiganweddingphotographer-35
