Jenna and Josh | Castle Farms Wedding Charlevoix, Michigan

What a perfect day to marry the love of your life, in a castle no less! It’s been a few years since I was up at the lovely Castle Farms in Charlevoix but it was just as beautiful as I left it. Every detail of Jenna and Josh’s wedding was perfectly planned. Even the weather that was perfect, still need to figure out how they did that. This couple and their families were such a joy to work with. So much love, laughter, a few tears, and a boatload of fun! Here are a few of my favorites from their day. It was so hard to trim it down to these! Especially the dance floor shots, oh man was that an epic dance floor.

Congrats Jenna and Josh! I can’t wait to share you whole gallery with you!!
