A wedding in Gaylord, Michigan?! (top of the mitten!) YOU BETCHYA!
01_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14A tip from Scott… if you’ve never tied a bowtie before… and you’re planning on wearing one on the day of your wedding… learn how to tie it before your wedding day. 🙂 I’m paraphrasing of course… but you get the idea. 🙂02_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_1403_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14Mandy you have a TINY waist! Color me jealous…04_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14It. Was. Freeeeezinnnnng!  I cannot tell a lie… I shot all of the wedding party pics LIKE A BOSS! …like a fast boss… 😉 This wedding party handled it like CHAMPS!  (well, the ARE from northern MI…)05_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14Accompanying the wind chill in the 20’s was some hit and miss rain all day… so they moved their ceremony and their arch to under a tent.06_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14HUDLER!!!!! Side note: Mandy, you were the definition of radiant that day. 07_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14
MARRIED!!!!08_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_1409_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14This pile of logs was at Mandy’s mom’s home… isn’t it cool?!10_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_1411_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14Have I mentioned how envious I am of Mandy’s tiny waist?!  AHHHH!!!! 12_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14And this spot!? Mike and I found it the morning of their wedding when taking a wrong turn to their ceremony and reception site. So they hopped in our Jeep after their ceremony and made it happen. 🙂13_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14I mean… AAAARE YOU KIDDING ME?! How could I resist?! My favorite ❗14_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14A caricature artist at the reception… we’ve seen this twice this year and both times it was quite the hit.15_BobbiMike_Wed_msw_14I heard that Mandy was a fan of Britney Spears… I made a special request of the DJ. You guys know I LOVE ME SOME BRITNEY!!!! Side note: To my wedding photographer friends… I’ve been wearing the exact same shoes since 2008… I buy a new pair every April. They’re kind of ugly but they’re SUPER comfortable!

 [br]What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Mandy:  Waking up early to get coffee and doughnuts with Scott- it was just us. And dancing with my Dad and watching every grown man in my family cry. Good stuff.

Scott: Seeing her come down the aisle. The sheer panic I had with only a couple minutes until the wedding and still trying to tie my bowtie!

[br] Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Mandy:  Just relax. Enjoy every moment, and carve out time for you and your spouse to be alone for a bit.

Scott: You won’t have time for everything, so enjoy what you can.

 [br]Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Mandy:  There were SO many: any moment dancing! We had fantastic guests (and photographers) helping us destroy that dance floor! My older brothers skinny-dipping in the (almost frozen) lake, or having pie fights after the reception ended, or forgetting the rings in my room before the ceremony!

Scott: Probably forgetting the rings.

 [br]If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Mandy:  The only thing I would change would be hiring a videographer. We didn’t, and I regret it.

 [br]Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We spent one week in Australia and one week in New Zealand!
