Katie + Charlie ~ Michigan Shores Club Wedding Photography

I truly don’t even know where to begin with these two and their families!! From the very first inquiry I had a feeling this wedding was going to be something special because of the people involved in it. I met with Katie’s parents as well as she and Charlie for our first meeting and I left in the absolutely BEST mood because they felt like old friends and family within moments of meeting them. Their warmth and kindness were apparent immediately. Needless to say, we were SO excited when they decided they wanted us to be a part of this incredibly special day uniting these two families!

Their wedding day lived up to all my expectations… laid back, fun, heartfelt, emotional, joyful, beautiful – ALL of it! We had the best day with their entire crew and are just so incredibly grateful to have been invited into this special day in all of their lives.

Katie & Charlie (Martha, Tom, Cari & Scott) – Thank you so very much for opening your hearts and homes to us! Thank you for welcoming us in with open arms and for trusting us wholeheartedly. Your kindness, generosity, and humility did not go unnoticed. We know the future will be a beautiful one for you and both your families and we wish you nothing but the absolute best!! XOXO ~ Christy & James
