Like many couples this year, Kayla and Kyle were victims of multiple plan changes for their wedding. Venue changes, guest list cuts, vendor changes and safety precautions all came into play for them. The end result though was the most amazing intimate backyard wedding and the perfect setting for them to say “I Do”. Their day was filled with joy, intimacy and moments of pure happiness and that was all that mattered.
Michigan Summers are mostly beautiful with a touch of humid and this day did not disappoint. The sun was shining and there was tons of love in the air. The setting took place at Kyle’s parents house and provided a spacious place for their backyard wedding to take place in.
They had thought of all the details! Snacks and masks on the tables as party gifts, the cutest bridesmaid robes while getting ready, comfy walking down the isle tennis shoes (with rhinestones) for the bride and picture frames on the trees as you walk from the house filled with their childhood photos. ADORABLE!
Both Kayla and Kyle got ready in separate spaces in the house until it was time for their first look. They wrote their own vows and took this opportunity to read them to each other after their first look. We scoped out a location near the house and found the perfect spot for them to have some private moments.
Operating a camera with eyes filled with happy tears is definitely a new skill I have acquired.
Everything went according to timeline and just fell into place to give them a beautiful day to remember forever. Covid may have changed their guest list, and their plans but it did not take their spirit or their love away. If anything, going through this together has made them stronger and proved their marriage can overcome obstacles.
