I cannot begin to explain how STUNNING this beautiful couples wedding at The Barn at Hamner Ridge was. Before Tayler and Michael’s day, I had never shot a wedding here before. It was a bit of a drive from Michigan to Indiana, where this venue was located.. However, believe me when I say that it was 100% worth it! From the rustic details and beautiful florals, to the incredible ceremony site with stunning arches, every single moment of Tayler and Michaels wedding day took my breath away, and I genuinely had so much fun with this sweet couple and their pup Waylon. Their wedding day at The Barn at Hamner Ridge is one that I will never forget!
I first met Tayler and Michael last fall in Kalamazoo, Michigan when I was lucky enough to capture their engagement photos. It was evident to me from the moment that I met these two, that their love for eachother was so genuine, and they truly were meant for one another. One of the most beautiful parts of my job is being able to capture my couples unique love story, and Tayler and Michael were the perfect fit! I had been counting down the days until their wedding, and they did not disappoint!
From the moment I met these two, I knew that we were going to get along. I was lucky enough to also meet their sweet pup Waylon during their engagement session, and I was SO excited that their best friend played such a large role in their love story. I’m definitely a huge dog person, and I loved their adorable pup with all my heart. It was so special to me that they gave Waylon his own adorable place in their engagement photos and their wedding day, and he definitely stole my heart. Waylon was arguably the star of the show, and he definitely had just as amazing of a day as his loving parents!
Tayler and Michael were so incredibly intentional with every single detail of their special day, something I absolutely loved about them. You could really tell that every moment was so incredibly thoughtful and meaningful to them. It was clear that every single person involved in their day loved and supported them unconditionally! Tayler had the sweetest group of bridesmaids, and they definitely created memories to last a lifetime. Every single person braved the Indiana heat (literally like 90 degrees!) and stood beside Tayler and Michael as they promised to spend forever together.
Once the sun went down and the temperature finally cooled, I was able to capture some beautiful moments of these lovers during sunset. Chasing these two around and laughing with them as we soaked up that just married feelin’ was such an incredible way to end the day, and I could not have asked for a more wonderful couple (or a cuter pup!). I left their wedding day with a full heart and the biggest smile on my face. Their beautiful and intentional wedding day at The Barn at Hamner Ridge will always be remembered as one of my favorite days ever, and I hope you love these photos just as much as I do!
