Addie & Nick: Timberlee Hills Wedding | Traverse City, Northern Michigan

Bride and Groom kissing during Timberlee Hills Wedding in Traverse City, Northern Michigan

Addie & Nick’s gorgeous Timberlee Hills wedding was one of my absolute favorite weddings of 2019 and I’m not even close to being over how perfect their day was. From start to finish, I don’t think I’ve ever laugh/cried more behind my camera on a wedding day.

From Addie’s stunning, one-of-a-kind dress, to her oh-so-sweet first look with her dad, an even sweeter first look with Nick, to a surprise Taylor Swift flash mob put together by her sisters/maids of honor, every single moment of Nick and Addie’s wedding day felt extra special. You could feel it in the air and in the love that surrounded them from their family and friends. And I feel so honored and privileged to have been able to document and preserve such a special day for them.

“he knew 3 months into it that she was the one and that he wanted to marry her”

One of my favorite parts of Addie and Nick’s Timberlee Hills wedding was the speech that Addie’s sisters gave before they surprised her and Nick with the flash mob they’d secretly prepared. They talked about the evolution of Addie and Nick’s relationship and how he knew 3 months into it that she was the one and that he wanted to marry her. Of course, this scared Addie off but she quickly realized that she’d made a mistake and they’ve been together ever since.

Their story actually reminds me a little bit of me and Zach. We both knew right away that this was it. And three months into our relationship, Zach gave me a promise ring. He knew I wanted to get my degree before I got married, but he wanted to let me know this was it for him. He was in it for the long run. So I love it when my couples tell me that they just knew it was meant to be.

“Pickles also stole the show, just a little bit”

Undoubtedly another one of my other favorite parts of Addie and Nick’s Timberlee Hills wedding was Pickles. If you know me, you know that I absolutely love it when my couples include their sweet pups on their wedding days. Weddings and dogs are two of my favorite things ever! So when you combine the two, I just love it 😍. I loved meeting Pickles and taking pictures of the 3 of them on this special day! She definitely stole the show, just a little bit.

Finally, I absolutely loved the way that Addie and Nick looked at each other on their wedding day. Nobody seeing them could doubt in any way how much they adore each other. Just take a look at these pictures from their wedding day below to see what I mean!

Congratulations, Addie and Nick! May you always be as happy and in love as you were on your wedding day! ❤️
