Kirkland and Samantha | Outdoor wedding at the Stonebridge Golf Club

Once upon another time; Kirkland picked Samantha up to watch a Plymouth Whalers game against the Windsor Spitfires. Before the game, they stopped in Historic Plymouth for a walk. When under the gazebo, Kirkland knelt down and asked Samantha to join him in his adventure. With the ring on, they sealed the deal with root beer floats at the local root beer brewery. They then went to the Whalers game, where Kirkland had rented a box, filled with close family and friends.

The girls kept an eye on the rainclouds out the window as they began to get ready…

Kirk and Sam couldn’t wait to see each other! We arranged to meet up in gorgeous Northville- and despite the soft sprinkles of rain, it couldn’t have been a happier, more serene moment.

Instead of a unity candle, Sam and Kirk opted for a much more appropriate option: a unity root beer float!! 😀

As I was packing up my car to leave, the night winding to an end- I spotted Kirk and some friends out in the parking lot.

I learned that they have the long-standing tradition of sharing a late-night beer after each wedding they attend. I couldn’t help myself- I had to stop for a few final shots…

…and I got the opportunity to make a little magic happen to close out the story of the day. <3
