Giffin and Kyle Wedding :: Preparation and Portraits

This is part one of Giffin and Kyle’s New Year’s Eve wedding – details, preparation and romantic outdoor portraits!  When we first met with these two, and chatted about wedding-day plans and ideas for pictures, we never would have guessed that we’d have green grass and temps in the 40’s! We had visions of wintery winds and snowflakes. But, Michigan always surprises us! We LOVED the warmer weather, and took advantage of the nicer day by doing lots of outdoor pictures. I loved everything about Giffin’s look, from her perfectly beaded trumpet gown and vintage jewelry to her classic black & white details.

The girls and guys started at the Radisson in Lansing, and from there we headed over to the State Capitol building for portraits. It was the perfect backdrop for Kyle, Giffin, and their fabulously dressed-in-black bridal party.

The veil: the moment a girl becomes a bride!

First Look on the Capitol steps:

Are they a good-looking couple, or what? And so sweetly blissfully happy 🙂

Pink boots and black peekaboo lace!

So, so so romantic…

… ceremony, reception, and New Year’s Eve celebration to come!
