Mia & Donald

Mia & Donald

Mia and Donald’s wedding was incredibly special - not only was it the wedding of a close friend of mine, but it was a “destination wedding” (Michigan!), I got to reunite with old friends, and even dance the "Cupid Shuffle" at the reception (camera in hand, of course)! Definitely a wedding to remember!

I met Mia over ten years ago. And back then, during our memories of sleepovers and birthday parties, I never knew I would have the joy of photographing her wedding! But when I first saw Mia and Donald together, I knew they were perfect for each other. Gentleness, kindness, and joy shine through both of them. But these characteristics are made even greater and Christ's love is even more clearly on display when they are together! Eden, one of Mia’s best friends (who was also the very first TEP bride!!), was one of the first to see this and realize that these two would be an amazing couple. She had grown up with Mia and when she got married and moved to Michigan, met Donald through a Bible study. She set them up, they became good friends, and the rest is history!

Over the course of Mia and Donald’s wedding weekend, we took time to reminisce about childhood memories and hilarious moments we’ve shared. And these memories continued to play through my mind as I watched them say their vows, spend time with their friends and family, and celebrate at their reception at Dawn Farm. Along with these old memories, now we were capturing new memories on their wedding day that Mia and Donald will be able to look back on for years to come!
