Heather and Aaron were married in a beautiful ceremony in Ada, Michigan. A fun, warm, welcoming reception followed at their home. Everything about their wedding was homegrown, organic, and meaningful. They had friends and family helping out with everything, and it was just perfect! My friend and wonderful photographer, Christina, shot this beautiful wedding with me. Head on over to her blog for even more pics, from a different point of view :)

After the girls were ready and bouquets were made, we headed off to Reeds Lake for pictures with the guys and families. It was fun to be the

The flower girls were absolutely adorable. Twins with blonde curls, little dresses with ribbon sashes… they couldn’t have been cuter!

After all the formals, they headed into Rose’s – the couple’s favorite restaurant – for a breather and a quick glass of wine!

Heather lost the flower from her hair, but it was nothing her girls couldn’t fix using flowers from the table!

Ready to walk down the aisle…

The flower girls decided they didn’t want to walk down the aisle after all, but with a little encouragement from the groom, they happily went down, tossing green leaves on their way.

  • { Published! } Heather + Aaron’s Elegantly Earthy Wedding » k. holly photography :: the blog - [...] Heather and Aaron were one of the first few weddings I ever photographed. The 4th one to be exact!  They hadn’t seen a ton of my work at the time they booked me, but they believed in me and trusted my vision.  I can’t thank them enough for that. Christina from Closer to the Heart worked along side me, and we had a wonderful day with them.  Their wedding was the start of something amazing for me and my work – they showed me how personal a wedding is, how important all the details are, and mostly, how blessed I am to be able to join families in celebrating and capturing such an intimate and momentous part of their lives. I’ve never forgotten it, and it’s a huge part of the way I work.  As much as I love creating those fierce wedding portraits (holla!), I’m always capturing little moments, details, smiles, hugs, tears and laughter all along the way.  The real stuff. The good stuff. [...]
