Jon and Laura had a gorgeous sunny day for their outdoor fall wedding at Laketown Golf and Conference Center last month! In Michigan it can be a little brave to hold and outdoor wedding, but that didn’t deter Jon and Laura from planning their outdoor ceremony! In the past we have had outdoor weddings that ranged from 40 degrees to 98 degrees. I don’t know what the actual temperature was, but it didn’t seem too hot or too cold!
Laura started her day at her parents home in Holland with hair and makeup. Laura and her bridesmaids enjoyed spending time together getting ready as Jon went out to lunch with his groomsmen. After they both arrived at Laketown and finished their preparations, they had a special first meeting outdoors near the golf course.
The sun was shinning, the temperature was perfect for an outdoor fall day, and love was in the air. After the first meeting, we spent some time photographing the bride and groom, wedding party, and family.
The ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect. The sun getting low in the sky as they celebrated the Lord’s supper with their children for the first time as a family during the wedding ceremony. It was a touching show of their dedication to Jesus and their family. They also showed a little fun for their sporting interests… with a little Ohio State and Michigan rival reference. Agree to disagree with this divided house of loyalties!
After the ceremony we all headed inside Laketown Golf and Conference Center for the evening celebrations. The food was wonderful. The music and dancing was spectacular. Jon and Laura danced the night away.
It was an honor and a privilege to be able to share with Jon and Laura on their wedding day. We captured some amazing pictures! If you would like to see more of them, make sure you watch their slide show here. Congratulations to Jon and Laura and to their families as you start your new life together!
