Laura and Edgar’s casual, intimate, bohemian wedding was submitted by Nicole Leanne Photography from our Perfect Wedding Guide Detroit market and it really tells the story of this sweet couple.
This is love. This is reality. This is authentic beauty.
These two met while traveling in Scotland and it wasn’t long until their friendship grew into a passionate love.
I was honored to document their day. To see the joy on their faces as they spoke, to witness their commitment to one another, and to feel the excitement as they embarked on a new adventure.
As I took a look back at their day, tears filled my eyes as the beautiful love between them is evident in every photograph.
This Auburn Hills, Michigan backyard wedding suited these two perfectly.
Laura dreamed of a casual, cozy feel for her wedding, drawing in vibrant colors to set the celebratory mood. Their intimate July ceremony was performed by a wonderful Minister of the Peace.
They shared their promises to one another beneath the setting sun.
Following, guests enjoyed Spanish inspired food made by friends that accompanied with a locally sourced cake deliciously made by Love and Buttercream in Birmingham.
As we waded through the overgrown summer grass, Laura and Edgar held each other tight. They shared their first dance alone in the grass as the warm sun kissed their skin.
The night ended with a bonfire surrounded by friends and family. And while the party is over, that flame is still burning bright.
As said by her brother at the wedding, “Eat like an Italian, drink like a Spaniard, live somewhere as beautiful as Scotland, and be as free as an American.”
Thanks so much for submitting this beautiful intimate wedding.
