Romantic Mid-Michigan Spring Wedding | Kylie + John | Lansing, Michigan

Beautiful Lavender Spring Wedding | Modern Bride | Laurenda Marie Photography | Michigan Weddings


What a pleasure it was to photograph the nuptials of Kylie & John! We met last year at Ferris State University for their engagement session and I was taken aback by just how down to earth and sweet they both were. Ferris happened to be the same place Kylie & John met, and in the same program, so it was fitting to meet there for their session!

Their May 2018 wedding in Lansing, Michigan was my FIRST of the year, and it didn't disappoint! I loved her use of lavender and the meaningful items she had sprinkled into the day, like her Great Great Grandmother's ring which she had tied to her bouquet, and photos of passed Grandparents inside the grooms jacket. It's small gestures like this that really bring meaning and joy to an already very joyous day. 

With a threat of rain, we were relieved to have avoided it during all our bridal portraits! And if I'm being honest, those rain clouds above gave us a great sun shade to get our job done quickly without having to search for that ever so helpful shade. We took a limo pre-ceremony to a nearby park for most of our bridal party portraits, and wrapped up pre-reception outside the Crowne Plaza. We found some beautiful budding trees and I wasn't about to pass those beauties up!

Everything came together seamlessly for their day, and huge thanks to all the vendors (credited at bottom) and family for their helping hand. 

Congratulations, Kylie & John!
