Amanda + Tyler // Boho Porcupine Mountains Wedding // Ontonagon, MI

Howling ghosts they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lionheart.
And as the world comes to an end
I'll be here to hold your hand
'Cause you're my king and I'm your lionheart

Amanda and Tyler got hitched on a gorgeous spring day surrounded by their closest friends and family. They love hiking and camping so obviously the Porcupine Mountains made the perfect location. And they’re huuuuge Star Wars fans (what up what up fellow nerds!!!) so it’s pretty convenient that they will get to celebrate their anniversary on May the Fourth for the rest of their lives. This wedding seriously had everything good. Star Wars, donuts, gorgeous decor, tacos (Did you hear me?! TACOS!), best dressed wedding party, light sabers, a cozy fire at the end of the night, and laid back vibes. Take notes guys. THIS is how you do a wedding.

Amanda and Tyler’s day was so laid back and the timeline gave us lots of time for portraits which means we got a ton of badass pictures. It also helped that these guys were dressed to the nines and couldn’t stop dancing and laughing with each other the whole time.

Georgia Wedding at The R-Ranch in the Mountains // Chelsea + Donny //

We just got hit with another snow storm here in Central Wisco. So I'm just looking back through all my favorite happy warm wedding pictures. Le sigh. 

In September I went to Georgia to photograph Chelsea and Donny's mountain wedding. It was my first time really hanging out in the south and I don't think it could have been any better. My first night there I hung out at Chelsea and Donny's house with them and their friends. We sat on the deck and drank beer and ate pizza and I laughed until I had a headache. The next day at breakfast I ate the best biscuits and gravy (courtesy of Dakota's plate. Whoops.) in the world. Amen. Seriously though guys. Like I will travel for food.
The rest of the weekend was basically like adult camp. Everyone stayed in cabins at the R-Ranch. I rode on the back of a motorcycle and tried moonshine and it was perfect. I honestly have never felt more welcomed by a wedding party in my life. It was like I knew them my whole life and I might have even shed a couple tears when I got on the plane to come home. Anyway. Enough about that. 
Did I mention we were in the mountains guys?!?! And this wedding was so freaking beautiful?!

Brides. Take note. This is how you do cowboy boots on your wedding day. Mmmk?

But did I tell you about the mountains yet? Sorry. I'm from Central Wisconsin and it's all flat here.

For the record I 100% support shotgunning beer on your wedding day...

I CAN'T!!! This ceremony. I cried. I cried when I watched Donny see Chelsea for the first time. I cried when both of her Dads kissed her before giving her away. I cried when Donny told her that her beauty rivaled the Georgia mountains and streams. Whatever. Don't judge me.

It's always a good idea to take a break from dancing and get some sunset pictures and time alone together... Especially when this is the backdrop...
