I’ve photographed several theme weddings – especially in the last couple of years. None of them, however, have been more unique than Cassie and Tony’s wedding at Holly, Michigan’s Red Riding Hood Stables.
Originally, the plan was for the ceremony to be in the rolling green fields on the property. Inclement weather, however, forced us inside the nearby horse stable. Yes, you read that correctly – the ceremony was literally in a horse stable – and it was beautiful!
Set against a backdrop of grassy hills and horse pens, Cassie and Tony recited their personalized vows. They were emotional, touching, funny, and heartfelt. At the reception that followed, it was very obvious that Cassie and Tony’s circle of friends is a very close-knit group that truly loves to enjoy each other’s company. They laughed, danced, danced more, and laughed AT dancing.
Both Cassie and Tony are easy-going and fun-loving – which made for some delightfully silly photos.
If you think about it; in 50 years, the couple will be able to look back at their life together and literally say that they had a “stable” marriage from the very beginning (that joke is why I’m a photographer, not a stand-up comedian).
