You know those people who you meet who seem to always be communicating with one another without actually saying a word? Mike and Kristina are some of those people; there love is evident and one of those things you can’t describe as anything less than perfect. Kristina adores Mike, and Mike would rope the moon for her in return.
Their wedding day was just as perfect as their love story– it was a warm, summery Michigan day. A slight breeze from the water floated through the trees and up to the cabins where they were getting ready. As Kristina slipped into her dress and fastened the clasps of her jewelry, Mike adjusted his tie and tucked photos of his mother and uncle into his suit pocket. Bridesmaids fluffed layers of tulle and elsewhere the guys took a celebratory shot and laughed at inside jokes. Neither could wait to see the other. This was it– the first day of forever. Later, they would meet by the lake on a mountain and share the desires of the heart with their friends and family; their desire to love and cherish the other for the rest of time.
Mike and Kristina’s day was a celebration on so many levels– celebrating their love, celebrating the merging of two wonderful families and celebrating the memory of loved ones who watched them say their vows to each other from the heaven’s. Kristina gained new friends, and Mike was welcomed into an enormous family. The end of the night was magical, as everyone gathered on the shore to release lanterns into the sky.
We were honored to be a part of this wedding and want to extend a huge congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Lawson! We cannot wait to see them blossom in their marriage! Here are some of my favorites from their day!
