Frankenmuth Wedding | Bavarian Inn & Lodge | Alayna + Andrew
A beautiful and elegant wedding at the Bavarian Inn & Lodge in Frankenmuth, MI.
Andrew & Alayna found Eric and myself just days after we rebranded our photography website and we could not have been more excited! Frankenmuth? Wooden bridges? Red Dresses? Two people in love? What more could we ask for!
After they saw our work that cold January morning they immediately booked one of our complementary Skype Consults. Later that evening agreements were signed and we were BOOKED for their wedding day! What turned into months of textes, pinterest board building, and wedding planning had finally turned into their big day. Andrew & Alayna’s wedding day!
Their day took place on a rainy day in July. The couple however had no need of fear as their ceremony would be taking place inside their beautiful Frankenmuth wedding venue Bavarian Inn & Lodge. It was a very elegant location and not to mention the natural light that day was AMAZING! Rainy days should never mess with your wedding day and natural light adds to the occasions and even more the images.
The day started with the Groom giving last minute 101 classes for his groomsmen. Teaching them on how to put on their ties, fold their handkerchiefs, and use their cufflinks for their rented suit shirts. To be honest we died laughing, but it made for the BEST journalistic photo opportunities! After the guys were all dressed and ready we then quickly took some handsome photos of the groom with all his attire prior to heading to see the girls.
Once we arrived in Frankenmuth we quickly found the Bride and her Bridesmaids in their bridal suite and started the “hustle” or as what we like to call the “60 minute crunch.” Running around the room with our ninja like reflex’s grabbing rings, shoes, dresses, and all the bridal accessories for those stunning detailed shots. We snuck out and allowed our bride to get ready while we finished up those last details just prior to her bridal shots.
Once we got back to the room, everyone was ready and the bride was a stunning vision in her beautiful off-white partial see through gown. She was beautiful and elegant and was ready to head downstairs to marry the man of her dreams and the man of her heart.
Once the ceremony began their was not a dry eye in the house. Even the groom was having to wipe his eyes while his “soon to be” read her vows aloud. Both of them smiled and cried while longing to hold and comfort each other, while both doing their best to wait until those final words were spoken: “You may now kiss your bride.”
Their wedding day at the Bavarian Inn & Lodge in Frankenmuth was simply stunning and elegant and to have had the chance to photograph their love and wedding was a day we will always look back on and treasure.
