This Fourth of July weekend we had the honor of capturing service woman and veteran, Abigail & Chris, on their wedding day in Southwest Michigan at Marion Magnolia Farms.
The day started out at Abigail's childhood home in Granger, IN. She was surrounded by family and friends from near and far. Abigail, a captain in the Army had friends from around the states. It was an honor to be a part of her day and meet many of her fellow female comrades.
Abby's makeup was done by Lips and Lashes by Crazy Aimee. While her hair was styled by Andrea Ludlow.
Mr. & Mrs. Toth's backyard was a luscious green garden which made a perfect backdrop for our bridal portraits.
Chris, a veteran Navy SEAL, was joined by his brothers and former brother in arms. They spent the morning rock climbing and relaxing.
Chris and Abby's ceremony was at St. Therese The Little Flower Church in South Bend, IN. The light coming in from the skylight allowed for natural light, creating a radiant ambiance.
After the ceremony the bridal party and guests headed to Marion Magnolia Farms for the cocktail hour and reception.
Upon arrival, we snuck away to capture some portraits of the new couple. Their chemistry was natural and made capturing their love fun and joyful. Abby chose a stunning color palette for her florals which were magnificently crafted by Country Florists and Gifts out of South Bend.
Dinner and toasts were had before the kids and their guests took to the dance floor. Everone was entertained as Chris and his brothers performed many different creative and fun dance moves.
It rained on and off all day. Fortunately, it always seemed to stop right when we needed it to. We were able to sneak away for some gorgeous sunset shots.
The night was full of fun dancing and laughs. I cannot wait to share more.
