This day. Oh my heart. This day felt like a little piece of heaven on earth.
Jonathan + I arrived at Barothy Lodge in the afternoon. It had been a rainy morning driving north, but we were crossing our fingers that the rain wouldn’t last. Fortunately, the rain subsided shortly after lunch, giving us a mild, overcast May day. It was wonderful. When we arrived, we were were greeted by beautiful faces, laughter and a sense of calmness. Bob + Ruth rented out a large cabin in the woods where his kids, her kids, and all their grandchildren spent the weekend… building bonfires, grilling, chasing the ducks and making memories. On that Saturday evening, Bob + Ruth wed – along the banks of the Pere Marquette river, with just their children + grandchildren present. It was an intimate, beautiful ceremony, followed by hors d’oevres + champagne, more chasing of the ducks, and then a nice sit-down dinner after the kids went to bed.
Witnessing these two step into marriage together was such a joy… and an even greater joy to watch their families come together and celebrate with one another. I’m thankful for the opportunity to capture this day. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into their wedding story. Congratulations, Bob + Ruth!
When just family is at the party, you better take some time to take lots of family photos!
