There is so much to say about Sheena and Adam’s October wedding at 12 Corners Vineyard in Benton Harbor, MI. Picking the pictures to put on this blog post was hard to say the least; every moment was something special during their wedding.
The day started with the girls getting ready at a waterfront rental in St. Joseph, not too far from the wedding venue. For the end of October in Michigan you couldn’t ask for better weather for a wedding. The sun was out all day, and it was relatively warm for the end of fall. The day went on without a hitch, starting with a first look, bridal party portraits and a little bit of downtime before the ceremony. Their ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful; being at a vineyard it was only fitting that they do a wine unity ceremony.
The reception started with the cake cutting, but with a little twist. Sheena had emailed me prior to the wedding day about gifting their cake topper to the next couple getting married. This was such a unique idea, and completely a surprise to everyone. During the speeches, Sheena’s sister and matron of honor surprised us by singing clips from songs edited to represent Sheena and Adam. After dinner was where the fun began, Adam has some pretty great dance moves. (and telling by Sheena’s reaction, it’s pretty normal) The highlight of the night was Adam’s guy friends coming out in these old jackets and just having a blast to Bon Jovi’s Living On A Prayer. I honestly don’t think I’ve laughed that hard at a wedding before, it was so much fun!
Sheena and Adam, I am so beyond happy that I got to be there to witness the beginning of your big adventure together. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible; your joy is contagious and I absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to many years of love and happiness!
Thanks again to Ryan of Ryan Inman for being my second shooter!
