Grass Lake, MI
Congratulations to Tori and Michael! What a beautiful day!
They met through a mutual friend, one that Tori had been friends with since high school and Mike was in a band with. They were invited one Memorial Day a few years back to celebrate with fireworks and the town. They ended up spending every weekend hanging out with these friends in the band. Then, Tori and Mike's relationship turned romantic a few months later and they slapped a label on it after a month of dating.
The proposal was pretty amazing. They were able to get tickets to see Erick Baker, an artist they love who sings their song, "Unbroken Promise". Mike contacted Erick and told him they were traveling to the show, and that he planned on proposing. Erick was happy to help. He saved their song for last and dedicated it to them. Tori was already floored by this, but then he turned to Mike and asked "Do you have something you want to ask?" Mike stood up, then knelt down. Perfect. Erick's wife recorded it for them too.
I loved that the getting ready part was fun and I felt like I was with friends and family, talking about girly stuff and laughing. Tori has this laugh that is infectious. She throws her head back, mouth open wide, and laughs with her whole upper half. I love it. Mike is just as sweet as sweet can be. I loved that Tori's son walked her down the aisle. I loved the that Tori crocheted her bouquet and the boutonniere. I loved that grandma got on the swing and looked like a five year old girl. I loved that the day was intimate and free. I loved this wedding.
The farm was amazing and gorgeous! It belongs to a friend and was just perfect. (I was amazed that no one got whacked by the falling walnuts-especially me. But hey- just a perfect day).
These guys were so fun, laid-back, and just happy!! They are a beautiful family of five and I wish them many more adventures to come.
Enjoy the preview!
