Lollipops and little ones, what could be sweeter!  Shannon, along with Todd from The Sweet Tooth in Marine City, partnered together to raise money for the Marine City Maritime Days.  Together their efforts raised $200 and were able to purchase two bikes for the fund!  AND…. we had a sticky fun time!  A win, win if you ask me!!!

Next up was our very own makeup artist extraordinaire’s  beautiful two year old daughter. We couldn’t decide who was sweeter, her or that yummy lollipop from Sweet Tooth.

How amazing are her little baby blues??

After a brief down pour and a few handfuls of the most delicious gummy bears I’ve had in a LONG time, it was time for another group of sisters.  They were eager to have their treats and put on their sweetest smiles.

One of Shannon’s previous couples was the next to call us about this fun session, and although they were off finally enjoying their well deserved honeymoon, we got to enjoy their adorable daughter and her super cute outfit made by her momma:)

How precious is she??

Next was the not very happy, but always extremely cute, Miss Hannah.  She wasn’t so sure about getting her pictures taken, however she was sure about one thing……. She LOVED her lollipop!!

Although she was a bit young to enjoy anything from Sweet Tooth, little Sophia was cute as ever and couldn’t wait to join in the photo shoot fun!

And last but certainly not least, my personal favorites (okay I am a little biased) my beautiful girls, Ahnaleza and Andee.  They were SO excited to come out to Miss Shannon’s house for their pictures, they were even more excited when they saw they also got lollipops!!

When the day was done, and faces were all wiped, and hands were washed, it was an amazingly fun day.  Thanks again to Shannon of course, but also to Todd from the Sweet Tooth for his amazing confections as well as to all the parents for allowing us to capture all the sweetness your munchkins had to offer!

It was a beautiful summer day.  The sun was shining and everyone was in a flurry of excitement when I arrived at Sarah’s parents that morning.  After over a year of planning their Michigan wedding from where Sarah and Jarrett were living in Georgia, everything had fallen into place and their wedding was absolutely beautiful, filled with love and lots of pretty and personal details.

Sarah’s Grandmother was the first baptism to take place at St. Gertrude and Sarah & Jarrett are the last couple to get married here.  Truly a lot of family history in this church and making the ceremony even more personal, Sarah’s cousin Father Scott, flew in from California to marry them.

Everyone was always asking them when we were going to get married, but they knew they wanted their dream wedding so they waited and saved.  Six years later, surrounded by gorgeous trees and the love of their family and friends, over looking Bower’s Harbor on the Mission Peninsula, Kelly & Tyler’s wedding was truly a dream. Their love for Michigan and the outdoors shined through in every little detail.    The day was perfect and the sunshine was welcomed after a lot of rain the previous day and everyone was filled with laughter and joy.

Bottles of homemade wine were given to guests.  Tyler’s parents make their own wine on their property in Northern Michigan and I’m telling you, it was delishious!  :-)

Today I’m excited to share one of Kevin’s recent weddings!  Nicole and Jeff have been a couple for over 12 years and in June during a beautiful ceremony at Beacon Hill Golf Club they committed to be a couple forever.

Stacy woke one morning to a dozen pink roses in her bathroom and knew that Mike was buttering her up for something, but was not expecting to come home from work to a new puppy.  As she knelt to read the name tag, so did Mike.  On the new puppy’s name tag Stacey found another surprise when instead of his name it read, “Stacy, will you marry me?”  She turned to find Mike on one knee asking for her hand… On a beautiful day in June, Stacy and Mike stood before their most loved family and friends where they pledged to love each other forever…

The day took place at the Concord Inn in Clinton Township where Stacy and her girls got ready in the wedding suite.
