Brad & Sydney | Carp River Gardens Wedding

From the first moment Sydney contacted me about two years ago and told me she had been a long time fan and it was important to her that I shot her wedding (and she'd even change her date for me) - I knew I was about to shoot one seriously awesome wedding. Brad and Sydney are two loving souls who traveled up from Virginia to exchange vows in Michigan at the Carp River Gardens. Sydney added her own artistic touches into the day, like the handmade invitations, RSVPs and programs. Rocking a custom designed wedding ring, a custom dress and jelly shoes (yes, good ol jelly shoes!), the bride marched her way down the grassy aisle to her groom and the witnessing families. A reception at the Landmark Inn ended the night on a classy note, filled with X's and O's. 

P.S. I love animal photo bombs and this wedding does not disappoint! Keep your eyes out for the wet dog who got off his leash!
