While the rest of the world swirls around them, Joe and Michelle have a quiet love that seems to stop time and drown out the chaos. Watching the way that they finish each others sentences and hearing the stories of how they have support each other for the last 14 years, you understand how their relationship just makes sense to everyone around them. Kyle and I were blessed and honored to be able to be apart of their special day that has been years in the making. With all of their family there, Joe & Michelle had a beautiful wedding at the Beaver Island Clubhouse that was full of laughter, fun and lots of dancing.
Michelle got ready at the the Grand Island Holiday Inn and girlfriend got the biggest suite I have ever seen! We could have done cartwheels in one of the rooms it was so big! Michelle's Maggie Sottero from Bridal Chateau, was simply stunning and the perfect choice for her.
Joe & Michelle were super creative when planning their wedding and chose to have the horticultural club from South Park High School do their flowers. They were really stunning!
Another one of my brides that brought the hair artist to her. Jackie was amazing!
It was wonderful to meet so many of Michelle's family before the wedding while they were getting ready. It really felt like a family affair and I loved the excitement in the room as Michelle got dressed.
Michelle, you seriously looked stunning on your wedding day!
Kyle met Joe and his brother Jim, at his parents house. And then it was off to Beaver Island for the First Look.
I loved every single moment of Joe & Michelle's First Look. It was beautiful!
And check out this awesome wedding party. They were giving it in every photo!
Despite the rain, the location was beautiful and the ceremony completely heartfelt.
The inside of the clubhouse is just as beautiful as the outside. And I have to give props to them for the fantastic food. Seriously, I have never eaten such good food at a wedding - it was delicious! The reception started out with some really sweet toasts from Michelle's sister and Joe's brother, that made everyone cry AND laugh.
Michelle and Joe's wedding cake from Sweet Beginnings was amazing in every detail and the grooms cake (made to look like a hostess cupcake!) was made by Michelle's mom...just for Joe in honor of his slight addiction:)
Michelle & Joe surprised everyone (even us) with a really kick ass choreographed first dance. They looked like pros!
It was so nice - Michelle danced with both her dad and her mom. Her and her mom are super close so it was a very sweet moment.
After dinner, things got a little crazy. The Hitmen kept the dance floor HOPPING - they were fantastic! Michelle's brother David was a hit with his version of "I'm too Sexy for my shirt". He did keep his shirt on but some money may have been thrown at him at some point!
Michelle & Joe, I cannot thank you enough for allowing us to be apart of your day! It was great to meet all your family and friends who were so welcoming and fantastic. Kyle and I both wish you many blessings for your marriage and your continued life together.
