Terry and Courtney’s Houghton wedding

Terry and Courtney’s Fall wedding in the Copper Country was a beautiful one.   It was nice and familiar since I’ve photographed a family wedding of theirs previously.   The ceremony took place in Courtney’s home church in L’Anse.

Bret + Michelle { Houghton MTU wedding }

Bret and Michelle are one of the sweetest couples I have worked with yet.   When I met them for the
first time I instantly loved them (and their families).   I knew their wedding
was going to be fun and a very happy occasion.

The number of their guests who traveled hours and hours to come to their
U.P. wedding is a testament to how awesome these families are 🙂

Bret and Michelle planned a very chic and simple wedding on MTU’s campus.  They met at
MTU so it’s such a neat part of their story that they were able to be
married here also!  They had a beautiful short and sweet ceremony in the
bright and sunny Rosza lobby and their reception followed in the Memorial Union Ballroom.

Rhian was on hand to provide make up.  She always does such a beautiful job.Bret and Michelle had the inside of their rings engraved.  I love this!   All of you future brides and grooms take note…lol.. The beautiful flowers were provided by The Blue Iris in Houghton.An instruction manual for the pocket squares.. Mom to the rescue 😉 Continue reading “Bret + Michelle { Houghton MTU wedding }”
