Katie + Adam
A Castle Farms Wedding in Charlevoix, Michigan


Saying this wedding was a dream is an understatement. The neutral colors, unique elements, fun loving people, and the gorgeous venue…so obsessed!

The day started off sunny and peaceful, a lovely beginning to the Michaud celebration. These two shared such a sweet intimate moment together before they said I Do and it’s becoming quite the popular trend with my couples, I love it oh so much! When they finally saw each other, they were more than ready to take on the ceremony together. Adam was full of smiles every time he saw Katie; especially during their first look and as she walked down the aisle.

Their wedding day was such a sweet one. Katie even shared a first look with her father, included their three cats in her wedding necklace, and exchanged love notes with Adam. And topping it off, their ceremony was one of my favorites. They boxed two separate wines they both had gotten when they were engaged. In a year, they’ll open it up and celebrate their anniversary!

Katie + Adam’s reception a was a legit party! The guys walked in throwing money over each other and the girls danced while taking shots. It instantly hyped the crowd for Mr + Mrs Michaud especially as the couple made their way around the reception hall clinking drinks with the guests. The night ended with everyone on the dance floor…including Katie’s dad who honestly stole the show and became the main character for just a moment, I think we all loved it quite honestly.

Katie + Adam,

What an honor it was to photograph your sweet memories! You two have such kind souls and share such a beautiful love for one another. Thank you so much for having me on your beautiful day, it was definitely one to remember and I will forever smile looking back on these images. Congrats friends!! All the big hugs!
