Where to begin with this day,¬†with Ally + Brandon… and their son, Timmy- Who, ladies, is still single. ūüėČ

With an intimate outdoor ceremony at Frutig Farms: The Valley in Ann Arbor, all the details hand created by the Bride, groom and their families… laughter and tears, and man, were there tears.

Tears of joy, of new beginnings, of new chapters, and tears of joy for the memories that trailed behind them.

Tears of missing someone who should have been there, as his memory was made evident through the laughter that filled every space of that barn.

The grooms father, Randy, unexpectedly passed away a few short months before their wedding.

“We’re going to celebrate the new, and celebrate hard, because we know that’s what he would want” Ally said.

And celebrate they did. With friends, family, and loved ones at their gorgeous Michigan Barn Wedding at  The Valley of Frutig Farms.

As they joined hands as Mr & Mrs, and made a new commitment as a family, with son, Timmy by their side, others gathered, rejoiced & celebrated old chapters & new. Welcomed laughter, and a day that seemed to had been dialed from the Heavens.

Ally + Brandon (and Timmy) wishing you nothing but the best life has to offer.

blessings, dayna

Vintage to Vogue: A Cottonwood Barn Styled Shoot

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

In the fall, I was given an incredible opportunity¬†to work along side some of the most ¬†inspiring creative professionals in the industry. This styled shoot was ¬†dreamed up, designed, and orchestrated by Kaeli Garcia of Luna Soiree Events. The Venue, Cottonwood barn, is a barn in Dexter, that was recently restored to a absolute breathtaking venue for weddings and events. Hence, the name & vision casted ¬†for the styled shoot: Vintage to Vogue. From the jaw dropping 2 ton chandler hanging over the barn’s rafters, to the pond painted with colored leaves, Cottonwood Barn is the Peanut butter and Jelly to today’s vintage chic bride!

Shooting with Melanie, of Melanie Reyes Photography, our goal was to capture every detail that lied within the vision for the day. Capturing the ambiance of a Fall wedding at Cottonwood barn was a whimsical experience. I am so happy for this local venue, (with the sweetest owners, I must add!) and all the creative professionals who had a hand in bringing this vision to life, to display a glimpse of Cottonwood Barn’s beauty!¬†

blessings, dayna
