Lizz & Ryan | Downtown Market Wedding

Lizz and Ryan’s day was a beautiful winter day, only it was in April. Luckily Michigan weather couldn’t damper this super chill and amazing couple who rolled with it like it was NBD. The couple had a very relaxed day at my favorite place, The Downtown Market, and enjoyed coffee, tacos, and ice cream. In the middle of this they joined together and became husband and wife. Seeing Lizz light up at every part of the day and watching the way Ryan looks at her, it was such a perfect day. Here are a few of my favorite images we captured from their day.

Congrats Lizz and Ryan! I’m so thrilled you found each other and also found me so I could be there for your day.
