I may be partial, but Heather and Mark are my favorite couple I’ve photographed all year! Admittedly, that may be because they are my beautiful daughter and my wonderful son (in-law).
Heather and Mark actually got married in July in Huntington Beach, California. Because they both have a lot of family and friends here, however, we wanted to throw a Michigan reception.
The couple lives in Austin, Texas where summers get HOT and winters are very mild. The thing they miss the most about Michigan is the change of seasons. Specifically, they love autumn, the changes of colors on the trees, cider mills and apple orchards. So they wanted to do the reception in a “family reunion fall theme”.
The occasion was in a beautiful area named Twin Chimneys inside Independence Oaks County Park. The event was “magazine ready” with beautiful fall-themed details everywhere. Friends and family dined in an intimate setting and then went out into the beautiful September day to play Cornhole, ladder ball, bocce ball and to watch an old-fashioned sack race.
The day was the perfect way for the couple to meet and mingle with extended family and old friends and to begin their lives together. Congratulations Heather and Mark. We love you!
