…Seven hundred and ten miles later…
I (Jon) had the absolute privilege of joining this couple for a really special weekend celebration in Michigan. Mark and Sarah chose a setting that thoughtfully reflected their love for nature (as well as their very first date!) The weekend events took place in Middleville, MI, tucked away into the woods, and surrounded by love ones who had flown in from all over the country.
Here’s a few of my favorite frames from their Friday evening rehearsal dinner. Picking my #1 favorite image would be impossible; but definitely note the little rebel eating out of the Cheez-it box, and the shooting star image. S’mores, vegetarian mexican dinner, shooting stars, energetic children at play, and a whole lot of love… what more could a photographer ask for? Enjoy!

A few months after meeting Deena & Dieter at another Michigander wedding this past January (the bride was Dieter’s sister), they got in touch with me (Jon) and invited me to document their big wedding day on July 9th.
Fast forward to this past Monday. Nothing says unique like a wedding day filled with friends & family hailing from all over the world just to celebrate this wonderful couple’s marriage covenant.
Their wedding ceremony took place at AACRC, with readings + songs in both English and beautiful Malayalam. During the evening cocktail hour, Deena and Dieter brilliantly planned some very unique activities for their guests– games! From beanbag tosses to slacklining (and a whole lot more), this certainly is the coolest cocktail hour I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. The rest of the evening was spent honoring family & friends with, among other things, table games, speeches, toasts, and a humorous duet by the bride & groom themselves (if only I had a video camera…).
Below are some of my favorite images from their wedding day. Stay tuned for more images to come, and be sure to check us out on Facebook! Enjoy.
