Jeremiah and Kelsey’s love story is a special one: they are high school sweethearts whose crushes in English class turned into a flourishing relationship. Homecoming, prom, graduation, college, and beyond, Kelsey and Jeremiah’s list of memories is long. Being in their presence is like stepping into a candy shop: you are overcome with sweetness. They both put each other’s happiness first and have been for many, many years. They would celebrate their Twin Lakes Golf Club Wedding.
Jeremiah and Kelsey got married at the beautiful Twin Lakes Golf and Swim Club in Rochester, Michigan. It offers many scenic backdrops to photograph a wedding. Most weddings, it is the bride who tends to be more emotional. Today, it was the groom who showed his emotions. As the bride walked down the staircase and aisle, Jeremiah could hardly look at her without fighting back tears. During their vows, his voice cracked as his words held years worth of meaning. Finally, in one of my favorite moments of the day, the bride and groom walked down the aisle after getting married and had a moment alone. Jeremiah broke into weeping tears after kissing his wife for the first time. While Jeremiah cried, Kelsey was elated. Years of their relationship just matured and a new phase just begun. They celebrated and partied the night away at their Twin Lakes Golf Club Wedding.
In between the ceremony and reception, also held at Twin Lakes Golf and Swim Club, we walked and photographed the bride and groom against the plush greenery of the venue. Before heading back, Jeremiah and Kelsey shared a quiet moment. As I escorted them back to their reception, I asked Jeremiah, “What happened at the end of the ceremony when it was just the two of you?” In true Jeremiah fashion, he responded “Allergies are terrible out here!” only to later admit that he was just taken with the moment and what happened. “All of those years of dating, the dreams, the talks…just came to be. And now she is my wife.”
At the end of the night, I wanted to give the two of them one last moment to let everything come together underneath a canopy of stars. It was the perfect ending to their Twin Lakes Golf Club Wedding.
