amber and brian pulled together their closest family and friends to stand up for them in their wedding and it was such a great group of people to hang out with all day. most of them were family due to them both coming from large families, especially amber who had her four sisters stand up for her along with her new sister in law. brian inherited a tractor from his grandfather that made its debut in their engagement photos and of course he had to trailer it up to bellaire, michigan and have it be apart of the wedding day. he truly loves that tractor. after a beautiful ceremony we thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with this fun wedding party and on our hay ride back, the rain drops started to fall. we seriously got the best weather/timing throughout this whole day. thank goodness.
their reception was nothing short of how amazing their whole entire day had gone. i highly recommend a live band, drop 35 was awesome and everyone had such a great time dancing the night away and then of course taking breaks outside after the rain had stopped and enjoying the beautiful view of lake bellaire from the pavilion outside. once again, loved her peonies and burlap … totally up my alley. everything about this wedding i just loved. again, congrats brian + amber. you both have a special place in my heart after being a part of such a special, amazing day.

trying for a serious face …
brother ruined it …
LOVED her different colored bridesmaid dresses with the different styles as well. the color palette is perfection.
first lmp cutting cake incident. they had the knife upside down for the first run and brian’s finger took the hit. not going to lie, it was kind of funny once we realized brian was going to make it and someone got him a super cool band-aide.
