“We both love to run and we love food and we love furry animals. We’re football season ticket holders, and we’re in East Lansing almost every weekend for the games!
Brandon took me to the place of our first trip away: Glen Arbor, Michigan. He proposed at Sleeping Bear Dunes!”
This post features my favorites from Alicia and Brandon’s fall MSU wedding
at the Saint Gerard Church and Hawk Hollow Banquet in Lansing, MI
As Christine worked her magic on Alicia’s wedding day hairdo, I couldn’t help but watch the sunlight filter through the fall leaves and smile. Michigan blesses us with beauty, especially in fall. <3
Alicia wanted to surprise her ladies and she their reaction- so after a helping hand getting dressed from her mother and sister, we brought in the other ladies…
Meanwhile, my second shooter Ryan recorded the guy from the perspective of the guys…
As the time for the wedding ceremony at St. Gerards drew close, family and friends gathered.
And, away we go! Off to MSU for the bridal party photographs!
Lynn and the rest of the team at W.E.D. did an amazing job (as usual) incorporating fall colors and items into the decor pallette!
During dinner, we snuck away to steal some sunset light- nighttime and sunset portraits are a favorite of mine (and of Alicia and Brandon)!
The Michigan / Michigan State game is a BIG DEAL- wedding or not! Once the news of the Spartan’s miracle play (and win!) reached us, it was time for a little MSU Fight Song!! 😉
But we Spartans are a fair bunch. 😉 Michigan / Michigan State cups were put out- any contribution to either would trigger a switch to the Fight Song of the giver’s team. Not to be outdone, Michigan quickly took the evening…
…and the fight raged on!!
As the dance floor opened, the glow sticks came out in force!! 😀
Congratulations again, Alicia and Brandon!!!
Thank you to all the amazing vendors who added to the beauty of the day! Special thanks to my second shooter, Ryan! Some of the above shots were from him. <3
