“Danielle (maid of honor) and I met in the fall of 2014 when we were both attending Northern Michigan University and became close during the school year. Although we went to the same high school in Alpena, we had never spoken until Dani was the CA of my apartment floor at Northern. We joked about me dating her brother Kaleb even though I had never met him. She always said we’d be perfect for each other. I ended up moving back to Alpena while Dani was still in Marquette, and we kept in touch. She ended up studying abroad in Germany and we made plans to catch up once she was back in the states. On August 28, 2016, Dani invited me over to her parents for dinner and that’s where I met Kaleb. He struck me as one of the most genuine men I had come to meet and he says it was love at first sight. He told his coworkers the next day he found the girl he wanted to marry, and it turns out he was right! He invited me over to his house the next weekend to have a bonfire with his family and we had our first date soon after that. In mid-October of 2016, he asked if I’d be his official girlfriend while we were standing in my dad’s workshop at my parent’s house. “ - Megan, bride
Megan and Kaleb’s wedding day began on that kind of gloomy September day where the looming storm clouds made everything in color richer in vibrance. The ladies met us in quaint downtown Alpena. Can we talk about how freaking gorgeous the bouquets from Falls Creek Produce and Flowers were!? Soooo much richness!
Lake Huron made for the perfect windswept portraits:
I don’t know if you noticed a couple photos up, but Megan was so excited she accidentally put the ring on Kaleb’s right hand, haha! I hadn’t noticed while photographing, but Megan told me after :)
