Riverwalk Place Wedding

There are two things you can count on in Michigan during the month of October; pretty fall colors and rain (or even possibly snow). We made our way from Traverse City to Gladwin, MI to the Riverwalk Place for Erin & Brandon’s wedding. It rained the entire way and was downpouring as we arrived. Then something magical happened while Erin and Brandon were getting ready–the rain nearly stopped! It was perfect timing.

As soon as Brandon and Erin were done prepping for their wedding they made their way outdoors, along the river, for their first look. Tears welled up in both their eyes as they first saw each other. It was such a special moment to be able to capture. We loved that they embraced the sprinkles that were still occasionally coming down during their portraits. They also made the call to move forward with having an outdoor ceremony, hoping that the rain would hold off long enough.

Sure enough, the rain held off the entire ceremony! And a beautiful ceremony it was! Erin’s mom married them as their guest enjoyed the sound of the river and beautiful fall colors. Afterwards, everyone made their way back inside to warm up with the coffee bar they had set up for their brunch wedding reception. Then the food came out and oh my gosh it was amazing (trust me, breakfast is my favorite meal).

We want to say thank you again to Erin & Brandon for all the fun that day and for allowing us the opportunity to capture it. We were truly honored! Enjoy!

We loved this ducky couple paddling along the river near their ceremony location.

This was a request from Erin and I’m SO happy that she did request it. It’s her, moms, and grandmother’s rings. So beautiful!
