Have you ever met a couple who just radiates love and joy? That is what I see in Derek and Alexis. They are a constant beam of joy. In a world filled with darkness, they're love is a bright beacon! I met Derek and Alexis through a past bride whose wedding I photographed. I'm so glad they came to me and allowed me to photograph their wedding! 

It was one of the hottest and most humid days of the year in Lansing, Michigan. It was over 90 degrees and the wedding ceremony was outside. Thankfully, when it was time for the ceremony, the sun was getting low in the sky, providing shade and cooling things down a bit. The wedding and reception were both held at Walnut Hills in East Lansing. This is a gorgeous venue with plenty of room both inside and out for laughing, dancing and making memories. The ceremony location was on a hillside beneath two large pine trees. 

Everything was perfect on this day. The couple, the wedding party, the rings, the dress, the flowers... It all just came together for a beautiful celebration. It's fun to shoot weddings where I can tell that the friends and family are all extremely close with each other. Congratulations Alexis and Derek!
