Kate + Ben : : Preview Gallery

Saturday, September 6, 2008

It was a perfect day, the sky blue and the air starting to lose it's humidity for Kate and Ben's wedding this past Saturday. Angie and I arrived at the Bayou House in Douglas, MI to meet Kate, her sisters and bridesmaids, and her family. This house was gorgeous! The doors, the lawn, made the perfect backdrop to family pictures and detail shots.

Kate and Ben's wedding was a destination wedding of sorts, with friends and family in from Chicago, the East Coast, and other various parts of the country. Kate and Ben themselves reside in Chicago but loved this side of the Lake and so planned their wedding here with the reception held under a big white tent at Ox-Bow in Saugatuck, MI.

The details, the food, and the ambiance were all perfect and true to this sweet couple. I wish them both all the happiness in the world!

Kate, you are a very chic bride!


After the church ceremony we came back to the Bayou House for the family pictures. These two had the right idea, taking a rest on the chairs behind this beautiful house.

Sushi! My kind of cocktail hour treat.
And any reception that allows you to bring your dog is totally good by me.

The details...amazing!

Kate and Ben - You both planned the perfect day. I hope your honeymoon to Mackinaw Island was a perfect one. Congratulations again!
