Wedding Michigander Style

I think everyone should have the opportunity to celebrate their wedding twice.

Having another excuse to put on your wedding dress is pretty awesome.

Add in not having any wedding day stress and just being able to sit back and celebrate with friends and family, and you have the ingredients for a great party.

My brother and his new wife celebrated their marriage at a reception in Michigan over the weekend.

Troy flew in us just in time for the party. Blake was ecstatic to be reunited with his dad after two long weeks apart.

I was pretty happy to see him too.

The boys were thoroughly entertained by my sweet cousins.

…and the hotel ATM machine.

I caught Blake sneaking cookies under the table on occasion as well.

Another perk of wedding celebration #2: It is more acceptable to smash cake in each other’s faces.

Since this reception took place in my hometown, I knew every single person in attendance. It was so much fun to have so many people I hold dear together in one place. I was supposed to be on photography duty, but I kept getting distracted catching up with friends and family that I haven’t seen in years. It always shocks me to see how much my cousins have grown. These girls were flower girls at my Michigan reception 6 years ago, in the very same room!

My Uncle Jim is another obvious go-to for our boys. He entertains them to no end.

It turns out Uncle Jim is also a budding artist. I love this rend-ed-ition.

Of course Jorden was on A/V duty at his own wedding.

And insisted on getting a few of his own shots.

Dancing was the best part of the night.

It took three people to hold Nash still long enough to tie his shoe.

Check out that concentration in the front to catch the bouquet.

No one else even had a chance. These are some more of my flower girls, all grown up.

And with that, I think we’ve had enough wedding festivities to last us for a good long while. Even Nash, my boy with endless energy, crashed at the end.

    It looks like it turned out great! The flowers and cake and everything are so pretty! Love the first picture! And how weird to see your flower girls all grown up!

    Can't wait for tomorrow!

    Great photos– you really captured the emotion of the event. So fun to see it all! I like their cake topper.
