A Michigan Wedding in the Country

Adrienne’s mom and mine have always been good friends, so her entire family has always been around in my life. So it was no surprise that when Adrienne got engaged, we both had our eyes on each other! There was no way I was going to miss this Michigan wedding in the country! Adrienne and Joe got married at a Catholic church half a mile away from my home growing up on a gloriously cloudy day. Her mom has always been an artist, and it was clear Adrienne got some artistic talent as well, as she had so many beautiful spots picked out for portraits throughout the day!
