Jordan & Claudia's Petoskey Wedding // Perry Hotel

One year ago I met Claudia and Jordan for their first client meeting at one of the most memorable and epic meeting locations to date. Main stage at Blissfest! The fact that we were all going to be at Bliss on the same day and they were willing to meet there to chat about their wedding communicated 2 things to me. That they are kindred spirits and that their wedding was going to be a blast. 

As Debbie, Jake, and I pack our bags for Blissfest 2018 I couldn't think of a more fitting evening to go live with their wedding blog post. Cheers and we'll see you there! 

Venue: Stafford's Perry Hotel // Florals: Monarch Garden & Floral Design // Hair and makeup: Vogue Salon // Ceremony: Petoskey Bayfront Park // Chuppah: Rustic Breeze Creations // Band: Mainstreet Soul // Cake: Bella e Dolce // Dress: Sottero & Midgley // Brides shoes: Vince Camuto and Converse Chuck Taylor All Star // Suit: Freemans Sporting Club (NYC) // Grooms shoes: Calzados Correa // Transportation: Northern Michigan Trolley 

Petoskey Bayfront Park and the Perry Hotel couldn't have been a more fitting place for these two to invite their friends and family to celebrate their wedding in a party of epic proportions.  

2017 // A Year in Review

Every year I look back and am greeted with the welcome reminder that the only constant in this world is change. Each wedding is a departure into new territory and every individual that finds themselves in front of my lens is wildly unique. For this, I couldn't be more grateful. Big ups to all of you folks for opening up, being yourself, and letting me to capture those moments in-between. Cheers to 2018!! 

From weddings to elopements, backyards to summer homes, Sleeping Bear to Beaver Island, Hawaii to Bay Harbor, Traverse City to Timbuktu and everywhere in between... thank you for bringing us along on your adventures.
