Brianna & Ryan | Eagle Eye Golf Course | East Lansing, MI
One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is having the honor of witnessing first-hand the memories my brides and grooms will share with each other for a lifetime. I do everything I can to protect and preserve these memories, and to be sure when my couples look back on their wedding day years later, they remember a day full of love for each other, the love of their families, the dancing, the laughter, and fun! While photographing Ryan and Brianna's special day I was feeling especially sentimental, for my husband and I celebrated our own marriage at the same beautiful venue.
Ryan and Brianna or "Brezee," as she's lovingly called by her friends and family, started their day waking up and getting ready in separate hotel rooms surrounded by their friends and family. When I first walked into Brezee's room, her friend and talented make-up artist, Carleana DeLaCruz, was working hard making Bri absolutely stunning. Spirits were high, and the girls were smiling and giggling all morning! As we walked into St. Gerads church in downtown East Lansing, the significance of the day was just starting to sink in.
After Ryan and Brezee vowed their love to one another, the party really got started! We stopped at a local bar called, SideBar, where the wedding party got to enjoy the air-conditioning and take a little break from pictures. They all had a quick drink, or two, followed by tequila shots. From there we headed to Eagle Eye, where everyone stood and posed in the hot sun. The reception and party was everything they could have hoped for. The food was incredible, including my personal favorite, chocolate covered wedding doughnuts. An evening of dancing and laughter followed, and I hope I captured moments Ryan and Brezee can remember for years.
