Katy + Ryan had the most beautiful day for their wedding at Black Star Farms in Traverse City. Katy + Ryan's love is so effortless. They are in love and it is obvious, which makes my job easy. From photographing them all day, I felt like they were truly soaking up and enjoying every second of their wedding day; whenever I looked at them there were happy tears or huge smiles on their faces. My favorite part of the day was at the end of the reception when Katy surprised Ryan with having the DJ play one of his favorite songs, "American Pie" and all of their guests surrounded them as they danced in the center and everyone sang the entire song; it gave me goosebumps... it was so beautiful. In that moment you could see how much all of their guests adored this couple. It was truly a joy to be a part of such a genuine day of love. Congratulations Katy + Ryan! I hope you are able to relive your wedding day over and over again with these images.
