Liz and Tyler | Vicksburg Lakeside Wedding

What a wonderful day of laughter and love this past weekend was at Liz and Tyler’s wedding.  A close group of family and friends traveled from all over the world to celebrate this happy couple. We started the day in Kalamazoo and had a bit of rain but it cleared up just in time for everyone to enjoy the beautiful lakeside property in Vicksburg where the bride spent her summers. A few favorite moments…Liz watching the girls get ready with the sweetest smile on her face, the joy of watching all those months of planning pay off. The mother-son dance which was a pretty epic version of Simple Man sung by the groom. And the last few shots of the night when the couple was just having a wonderful time dancing and loving on each other in the late sunlight. This day was the tops and I’m so thrilled to share some of the images of the day. I hope you love your preview guys! Many more to come!


These tracks are a special memory of growing up at these cottages. It was fun to see them all so excited to be there again.

Food truck dinner? Yes please!

Thank you so much Liz and Tyler for having me out to document your day! I wish you both all the love and happiness in your travels together on this globe.
