Rainy day wedding photography

Emily + Steve

The wedding of Emily and Steve was held at Bay Point Inn on Gun Lake, which I have frequented many, many times! Fun fact: I grew up in Wayland, MI (near Bay Point) and I graduated with Steve and most of his groomsmen! Just before the ceremony it started to downpour, which made most of the guests travel into the ceremony under umbrellas. Before the reception, we took a short trip to the small village of Shelbyville for some bridal party photos. I captured some awesome photographs in front of the old Building that my grandparents used to own many years ago. It was called the Fontona where they would play classical music. It was great to catch up with old friends and go back to familiar places while capturing their wedding!

Ethan and Lauren had one of my favorite first-looks of all time! It was down-pouring rain on the Kent-trails and WOW was it a beautiful site to see. It's a good thing we all share something in common, we all enjoy playing in the rain. I think rainy day weddings mean good luck and also adds tons of character to your photographs!
