Michael & Lynn are made for each other. Their retro, downtown, outdoor, sundae social wedding was adorable - just like the two of them! Here's a snapshot of their day. Click the photos to enlarge them.
Lynn got ready at her parents house - her aunt did a great job on her hair and make-up! Her dress was beautiful - lots of intricate details!
Michael & Lynn were married downtown Flint - the heart of the city they live in, work in, and love. Although rain threatened to pour all day, we only had to endure a slight sprinkle. They were married by a friend of theirs in Riverbank park - an outdoor auditorium next to the Flint river.
During the ceremony, Lynn & Michael signed their marriage license, which I thought was pretty cool. They also shed happy tears, which their adorable ring bearer (Lynn's cousin) couldn't understand. He was so distraught at seeing Lynn cry that she took a moment to console him. He was a bit happier after that! Lynn & Michael had the benefit of hiring a second shooter - two vantage points of a very important kiss!
After the wedding, we went to take bridal party portraits around Flint. It started to rain a bit, but it tapered off and we took the opportunity to take some reflective puddle portraits.
Michael & Lynn held their reception in the Alfred P. Sloan Museum. They had an ice cream sundae bar: giant jars of maraschino cherries, bowls of whipped cream and all of the toppings you could ever want! Each guest had their share of Coke in the classic glass bottle (complete with adorable paper straw!). Instead of dancing, guests engaged in heated Pictionary battles, waged war in Risk and faced stiff competition in Uno! The maid of honor and best man gave wonderful speeches (who knew Michael had to face a bear while camping?!).
After the reception was over, we walked outside and realized we had some gorgeous light! It was pretty easy to convince Michel & Lynn to take a couple more portraits. We were even able to take the awesome homemade banner that graced the head table and turn it into a prop!
