Carolyn & Kyle: A Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn Summer Wedding

Carolyn and Kyle’s Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn summer wedding was this past weekend, and may just be one of my favorite weddings this year so far. I’m still not sure I completely have the words for how beautiful their day was. But I’ll try, lol!

A Grey and Blush Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn Summer Wedding with Gorgeous, Romantic Florals

I’ve been looking forward to their Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn summer wedding ever since Carolyn and Kyle first booked, but even more so after I got to meet them at their engagement session and they both immediately felt like old friends!

My sister was in town from Florida when I did their engagement session and she decided to tag along after asking how long their session would be. I told her about an hour like my engagement sessions usually are. She said she would just read a book in the car while I did their session. Once I got back to my car, she said to me, “You realize that was like 2 and a half hours, right!?” OOPS! I think we ended up chatting for at least an hour after their engagement session about our love of history and the places we want to travel and all the many things we have in common! 

Their sun-drenched wedding day was everything a summer wedding in Michigan could hope to be and more

After that, I knew their wedding day would be beautiful and I couldn’t wait to photograph them again! When it finally arrived, we couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous summer day! Their sun-drenched wedding day was everything a summer wedding in Michigan could hope to be and more! From their First Look all the way to the last ray of sunshine, you couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

These two are seriously two of the most beautiful souls you could hope to meet, and nobody who sees them together could ever doubt for a second that they’re each other’s whole worlds. Whenever they’re together, they just melt into each other’s arms and it’s obvious that it’s where they’re supposed to be. Congratulations again, Carolyn and Kyle!

Here are just some highlights from their gorgeous, gorgeous wedding day! ❤️

 

 

Their first look was the absolute sweetest!

One of my favorite things about first looks is how much time we get to make gorgeous portraits like these for you to cherish and enjoy forever. Plus you get to spend so much more time together on your wedding day. Which makes sense, why not spend as much time on your wedding day with the other person that it’s all about?

Their whole ceremony was just gorgeous! I absolutely loved Kyle’s reaction to seeing Carolyn walk down the aisle towards him. It just goes to show that having a first look doesn’t ruin the excitement of knowing you’re about to join your lives together.

 

 

I’m still obsessed with all the florals and little gorgeous details that Carolyn and Kyle had at their wedding. When Carolyn told me that her aunt, Cathy Moon, had done all of the florals for their wedding I was blown away. How talented is she?
