I moved away from my hometown fairly fresh out of high school, so I have missed many of my good friends’ weddings over the years. Not this time! I had the absolute pleasure and honor to photograph the wedding of my dear friend Audra and her (now hubby!) Jim. It was a perfect Michigan summer day, gorgeous weather, incredible details, and a stunning new location. It took place at Hydrangea Blu Barn
in Rockford, a place that is sure to become a favorite venue. The decor was gorgeously arranged in a rustic style, which allowed for a comfortable and festive atmosphere that included lawn games (giant Jenga!), karaoke, DJ, and just plain fun under the stars and the sparkling chandeliers in the barn. There are farm animals on site that seem to get as giddy with the day as the guests, happily obliging for photos. It was a stunning affair, and the love was freely flowing between the newly wedded as well as throughout the camaraderie of old friends.
Congratulations, Audra and Jim! Here’s to your happily ever after! Enjoy your slideshow sneak peek!
