Lake Michigan Beach Weddings | Jamie May Photography

By Jamie May Photography:   I was so happy the day finally came for Tracy and Scott’s wedding. I have known Tracy for a long time, and she always said when she got married,  I was going to photograph her wedding!!  The setting was just beautiful along the beaches of Lake Michigan.  All the details were so well done and the food was amazing. It was such a wonderful wedding with a lot of my dear friends there to witness the special moments between Scott and Tracy.   We also took several pictures of the car that Scott restored. It is a beauty.  Scott surprised us all with fireworks at dusk.  All the kids LOVED that!!   I know you will have MANY more happy years together!!! So happy for the both of you.

Blue Dress Barn | Jamie May Photography

By Jamie May Photography:  I didn’t realize how far behind I am on my blog postings!! I stopped at this one because it totally stole my heart with all the details and the beautiful setting.  There were so many neat details!! The Blue Dress Barn’s owner is an interior designer. So even the bathroom has amazing details!  The ceilings in the bride’s room are lined with old barn wood and doors.  Then Alisa went over and beyond with her details. The flowers were gorgeous and her veil and gown.  I loved her apple table and the apple centerpieces.  The fabrics and the old vintage style birdcages and drawers.  The party favors of Smores that could be roasted at the outdoor fire pit.  Sparty paying a visit to surprise the groom. That was really awesome and a total party motivator for all Spartan fans.  The ceremony location is so beautiful with the ivy and the old barn wood. The groom hand made the lemonade stand!! How cute is that?  Complimented with big oversized balloons.  Alisa and Evan are a beautiful couple inside and out.  They are very sweet to work with and I will remember their wedding forever!  I also have to mention that the live band was awesome. That is such a great way to have music.  There is something about live music that really makes the dance setting unique and fun. I highly, highly, recommend.  Congratulations you two! I wanted to stay and dance the night away with you guys!!  Best wishes to you both!!!

Fremont, Michigan Weddings | Jamie May Photography

By Jamie May Photography:  We had crazy wedding weather for this beautiful Fremont Wedding with James and Emmy Bacon.  The first part of the day we thought we would sweat to death because of the terrible humidity, but it was sunny and that was what we were happy about. But soon as we were ready to take pictures the rain started to ruin my streak of weddings with no rain!  The good thing was that the rain was just a drizzle and nothing that could stop of from having a outdoor ceremony!  After the ceremony was over, the rain finished and we were able to grab the rest of the outdoor photos.  Emmy had a bunch of cute ideas throughout her wedding ceremony and reception.  James and Emmy are so easy to work with. They are so sweet and thoughtful.  We had a great time with the both of them!!!  Wishing them many more years of happiness!!

Grand Haven Weddings | Jamie May Photography

By Jamie May Photography:  Alissa and Wayne are such a nice couple. When I met Alissa and her mom, we immediately connected. I was so excited that they hired me to do their wedding.  They both have such great hospitality and were so welcoming.  I am first giving you a preview of the engagement session. We had an amazing day with the clouds at the beach!

Alissa and Wayne got married at the First Presbyterian Church of Grand Haven.  I love the outdoors of this church. It is so pretty!  We headed to Central Park to take  few pictures too.  I love when couples see each other before the wedding! It makes the day more relaxed and we are able to capture so many more pictures then we would otherwise.  They also hired the cleanest party bus that I have ever been in. I am going to have to find out the name for referrals!  They had their reception at the Trillium in Spring Lake.  I love all the dancing that was taking place. Everyone was having so much fun! Her sister gave an hilarious speech that had the whole crowd laughing.

I am so happy for the both of them. I know they will have many years of happiness due to their genuine love for each other and their strong Christian faith.

Destination Wedding Photographer | Jamie May Photography

By Jamie May Photography:  Grand Haven, Michigan is a hot spot for people to get married. I get calls from all over the United States of people getting married in our beautiful town.  The beaches of Lake Michigan are one of my favorite places to spend my time.  This lovely couple, Megan and Blake, had a perfect summer day.   They got ready at the Holiday Inn in Spring Lake and then headed over to North Shore Beach for a wedding with My Barefoot Weddings.  They do an excellent job setting up the scene and also will officiate your wedding.  They are always smiling and willing to help.   Megan and Blake are such a beautiful couple. They were so easy to take pictures of and we had lots of laughs because Blake is a funny guy that is full of surprises.  We ended the day at Desserts by Design, which has a small reception room if you are having  very small out of town wedding and are keeping it simple.  So thankful to be a part of this wonderful day!! list-5133 list-5104 list-2396 list-2393 list-2430 list-2445 destination weddingslist-3001 destination weddings destination weddings destination weddings destination weddings destination weddings destination weddings destination weddings destination weddings destination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddingsdestination weddings

Crane Orchard, Fennville | Jamie May Photography

by Jamie May Photography:  This was my first time doing a wedding at Crane’s Orchard. It is such a beautiful place to have a wedding.  We did not even get to the half of all the photo opportunities there!!  Nathanial (Red) and Sara are such a sweet couple. I have never been around a couple that show such more outward love towards each other! They are always looking at each other, smiling, kissing. They are so adorable together.  I am so happy for the both of them.  We appreciate their family and friends for welcoming us in every situation.  I loved all the details. Red stamped all the guest on those little logs. I love that!!  They had a wonderful planner Elegant Events.   Some other great vendors involved (taken off her organized list) were

Destination Weddings | Grand Haven Beachs | Jamie May Photography

By Jamie May Photography:  We had a wonderful time with Jessica and Barry. We pulled up to the adorable cottage they rented in Muskegon by Pere Marquette.  This is where they were getting ready and having the dinner party after.  We then headed to North Shore Beach where Barefoot Weddings had their ceremony site set up.  It was a beautiful day!  We spent some time on the beach taking pictures after and enjoyed a trolley ride back to the cottage.  Jessica had such cute details. I loved the mugs that you could write your names on.  The cake was awesome and tasted awesome which was done by Cakes by Design in Grand Haven.  They had it catered in by The Station Grill.  Wow! Those were some great burgers.  Jessica also had a little photo boot set up outside.  I love that we got to spend so much time with Barry and Jessica taking pictures. After dinner we headed back to the beach to take some pictures on the pier.   It is rare that we have such a chill day!  They had such hospitality we felt like we were sitting among friends and family.

Best Wishes to you both!!!

Fruitport Golf Course Reception | Grand Haven Weddings | Jamie May Photography

 

By Jamie May:  Another sweet couple, Lauren and Thomas, are high school sweethearts.  It has been a pleasure to get to know these two. The wedding day was so beautiful.  I loved during the father speech when he mentioned that he couldn’t imagine Thomas not being a part of his life because he feels like he helped raise him. I thought that was so nice and also pretty neat to have known your future son in law so well that you helped shape and mold him! :)   We had a gorgeous day.  Lauren is very organized and that helped everything to run smoothly.  There was always someone that knew what was going to happen next and preparing.  I loved the shoe game, that is always a riot and everyone has fun watching the two try to match their guesses.  We ended the night with a breath-taking sunset.  So happy to be a part of this day with these two wonderful people. Wishing you many more years of happiness!!
