Michigan Weddings | Jamie May Photographer

By Jamie May Photography: Michigan Weddings, Real weddings by experienced wedding photographer Jamie May.

I have known Lisa and Jeff, parents of the groom for some time, they were trusting, open-minded people that trusted a girl, young in her 20s to sell their home.  They are so uplifting and kind, and I was thrilled when Erica, the bride, reached out to me to photograph their  wedding.  It is always nice to have referrals from friends and family; really it is the only way that you can be sure you are doing a good job for people.

To me, referrals are one of the kindest acts shown to me with being self-employed, because you then know people care about you, too.  That being said, the day was like hanging out with family, I love all the familiar faces and catching up with them all.  Erica has been the most ambitious bride I have seen yet. She was savvy in her wedding planning. She found a wonderful spot for all the lodging and the wedding and reception to take place, with beautiful views of Lake Michigan.

I also am a big fan of these three things:

1. White tent weddings

2. Weddings and Receptions at the same location

3. And beautiful flowers.

All the above were true of this wedding.  These curly things you see in the wedding flowers….. yeah, those are real. It is called curled ferns. So cool.  Wishing you both many more happy years, I am so excited for the both of you!!! xoxoxo

Do it Yourself Weddings

If your going to do a lot of the wedding details and props yourself make sure you have a good team. The last thing you want to be doing on your wedding day is worrying about every little detail.  Erica was a amazing with the details and had a lot of clever game ideas and props.  She made all the flower boxes herself, too.
