I was introduced to Christian and Meagan a little over a year ago when I stayed the night with my childhood friend, Tony, because of an overnight layover at LAX. Tony took me to one of their soccer team’s game and as he explained who was who, I realized how close to Hollywood I was sitting. Between the members of their team, there were actors, producers, and special effects artists; it seemed like we had cast and crew all right there!
A few months passed by before I received an email from Christian and Meagan asking if I would photograph their wedding out in Michigan. I jumped at the opportunity to work with this amazing couple and Tony who was set to officiate their wedding.
I had never been to Northern Michigan, but after this trip, I understand why a couple from Santa Monica chose Boyne for their wedding venue. The days I was with their crew, there were always activities: playing golf (both with balls and discs); enjoying the lake on jet skis, fishing, and sailing; babies and kids all around having amounts of fun only their smiles can communicate; and of course, people were always heading out to run!
Christian and Meagan put their wedding together themselves and nailed it! They not only brought out nearly everything from their home including a homemade photo booth complete with props, but also infused their own outrageous flavor into events like their rehearsal dinner-complete with wigs. A local florist, DJ, and the assistance of Boyne Mountain helped keep their celebration seamless. From the start of the week to the end of their reception, everyone who attended was filled with sincere joy. Congrats Christian and Meagan and thanks for everything!
