Little known fact about Michigan- except to maybe the race fans- is that every year, just twice a year, Brooklyn, Michigan becomes the second most populated town (over 100,000 people plus!) in Michigan for the weekend. Race weekend. Brooklyn, Michigan is home to the Michigan International Speedway where NASCAR races happen. Jeff Gordon even holds a record there, and MIS has more than 8,000 campsites making it the largest registered campground in Michigan. The tiny town is beautiful- but WAY overcrowded when it's a race weekend. Before y'all think I'm super smart, I'm not a walking encyclopedia- I looked up most of that! But I wanted you all to get the gist of how thankful I was that it wasn't a race weekend when Harmony and Devin got married! XD
It was a blistering hot day in the middle of summer when we attended Devin and Harmony's wedding as their Brooklyn Wedding Photographers! I remember my feet literally baking on the pavement in the parking lot as everyone was tossing lavender at them after their ceremony- I was hopping from foot to foot, no joke. It. Was. HOT. Harmony is a quiet beauty, super kind-hearted and smart, and Devin is a soulful jokester who is also a creative musician. They told us one of their favorite things to do together is attend music festivals. If you saw their engagement session on the blog (here) you'll see a couple shots with all their festival wristbands. I won't want to say much else, I'll let the photos speak, but we had a blast with them and their wedding party, one of our favorite days.
Harmony and Devin opted to go a more traditional route and not see each other prior to the ceremony, BUT Harmony did a Reveal with her dad right before the ceremony, and it was seriously SO SWEET.
And Devin's reaction to seeing Harmony was super cute, too.
Then it was time for the lavender send off, bus trip, golf cart antics and portraits.
I'm going to put all the reception images in a slideshow here, trying to conserve vertical space!
The party was still going when we left.
