Samantha & Mike, September 9, 2017, Old Daley on Crooked Lake
Samantha and Mike both got ready at Old Daley on Crooked Lake. It was fun to hop between both bride and groom suites to capture their prep. They decided on a first look and it was a beautiful day outside, so we headed to the stone walk way and had Sam walk up behind Mike and tap him on the shoulder. Sam’s gown was unique and had such a gorgeous back. She had to turn around to show it off to her groom. The sun was shining and we began walking around the grounds for the couple’s photos and even ventured to some new spots close by for a variety of backgrounds. The wedding party was a great mix of fun loving individuals who made our day with cracking their own jokes and getting everyone laughing. The couple were married outdoors by the lake in front of around 190 guests. Near the end of cocktail hour, we captured a little sliver of the sun going down and even asked both Sam and Mike to take off their shoes and roll up their pants to step into the stream (which was lower than usual). The reception was definitely a party and DJ Vinny Vin had all of the guests on the dance floor celebrating the newly wedded couple. We even spied good vendor friend, Melissa Orth from Poppytree floral and her entire family cutting loose on the dance floor, as the Bride was her cousin. It was such a great day.
We loved spending the day with you two, Sam and Mike. We wish you love and happiness ever after!
