do you believe in magic?

i do!

what fun we had traveling to the magic capital of the world...colon, michigan to photograph my dear friend's daughter's wedding!  i enjoyed photographing this wedding with my mentor and "second momma," lynne and my daughter, deztanie, future photog! the wedding took place on october 15 and the venue was a cozy craftsman styled resort nestled along side sturgeon lake, the retreat at miller's landing.  the couple's engagement photos were taken a week before the wedding in downtown indianapolis...and after spending the day with erin and todd, i couldn't help but believe in the magic of love.

love, love, love the sense of humor these two share!

the wedding celebrations began early that morning - the "boys" gathered for a huge breakfast at a diner in downtown colon while the girls were primped and pampered at a local salon...in between photographs, we were able to take in a bit of colon's magical attractions too.

erin & todd not only share a love for each other, but also for the chicago bears - evident in the blue and orange chosen for the wedding colors...

the groom shared the significance of this coin...the bride's father gave it to him before the wedding and explained that it was the coin he had in his pocket the day he married her mother.  and yes, we were all choked up by this story...

this is one happy groom...literally jumping for joy!

this was not only the joining of two hearts...but rather seven - the kids were as much a part of this ceremony as the bride and groom with a sand ceremony and gifting of family necklaces from the parents. so touching...

lynne's awesome photos...the couple had us cracking up - all day long the two would tell each other, "you're so sexy - no, YOU'RE so sexy..." love 'em!

erin & todd kicked off the reception's dance party with a dance serenade to michael jackson's "the way you make me feel" - so much fun!

wishing this happy couple & family many, many more years of magic...congratulations again!
