Gabriella & Matthew: A September Castle Farms Wedding | Charlevoix, MI

What can I say about Gabriella & Matthew’s September Castle Farms wedding? Other than being absolutely gorgeous all around, Gabriella & Matthew are two of the sweetest humans ever and the kind of beautiful souls that you instantly want to be great friends with. I’m so glad I got to be a part of their special day and got to capture all of their sweet memories.

 

 

All the way from getting ready, to an awesome party on the dance floor, Gabriella & Matthew’s day was full of so many sweet moments. Their bridal party was a blast, Gabriella shared the sweetest first look with her parents followed by an absolutely adorable first look with Matthew. I honestly don’t think there was a person involved in this beautiful September Castle Farms wedding that didn’t cry at some point throughout the day because they were just so genuinely happy for this sweet couple on their special day.

I’m so excited to share some more from their day here on the blog! Make sure to scroll through the blog to see all the gorgeousness that was their wedding day ❤️

Congratulations again, Gabriella & Matthew!

I always try to sneak the bride and groom away for some sunset photos, but at Castle Farms you absolutely have to have sunset photos. There are just so many gorgeous spots to take pictures, you definitely want extra photo time! Plus these two cuties got to spend more time and just wrap up in each other on their special day!
