DawnMarie + Franco = Perfect Wedding Day + Wonderful Life Together

I could write paragraphs upon paragraphs about the wonderfulness of yesterday. Everything was amazing. It was truly an honor to photograph the wedding of a dear friend of mine, Dawn Marie. DM (as she's known) is an amazing person. She's as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She's funny and smart, and can grab the attention of room full of people and keep them entertained and engaged for hours upon hours. Good thing she's a facilitator for Dale Carnegie Training!!! But, most importantly, she's truly a good, good person. Kind, generous, and caring. She's kind of person who drops a card in the mail just because. And when you open the card, it's filled with beautiful, bright words. The meaning of the words are bright and beautiful, but they're also visually bright and beautiful - carefully written and created with bright and vivid markers and pens. DM- I hope I'm not embarrassing you!

So, when she she told me a few months back that she was getting married to Franco, I was so incredibly excited for her! He's the perfect match for her. And the highlight of the day was the ceremony, standing on the rocks overlooking Lake Michigan. With the warm sun on our shoulders, and warm feelings in our hearts, DM and Franco shared their promises for their life to come in a way that was, well, totally them. Perfect.

This is just a small collection of moments and details of the day.
