We love this sunny, summer, Traverse City wedding from Dan Stewart Photography! The pale lavender dresses, the dusty pink roses, the creamy white lace, it's all good in our book. The joy and excitement just radiates from this beautiful couple.
From Dan Stewart: If you look up the word "joy" in a dictionary, some of the synonyms that you will find include: delight, jubilation, glee, exhilaration, exuberance, elation, bliss... The list goes on and on. When I think of Megan & Dan's wedding, it's hard to sum it up on just one word. But I think that list comes pretty close.
Megan & Dan's special day was one of true joy and anticipation. It was a day of celebration in the present that brought together the most important people from Megan & Dan's pasts to mark the beginning of a new and exciting future together. And that, in and of itself, is beautiful.
From the early afternoon activities and preparations among close friends to the moment that Dan turned around to lay eyes on his beautiful bride, it took no time to realize that this day was going to be a special one (and a fun one!). The way they look at each other. The way they laugh together. Love is a powerful and beautiful thing, and there's no denying it when you watch these two interact. After exchanging thoughtful and heartfelt gifts with each other, Megan & Dan were soon joined by their bridal party for a few photos before heading to the ceremony.
The ceremony. The flower petals. The vintage automobile. Megan & Dan were soon on their way to the beautiful Historic Barn Park where they would soon be joined by their family and friends for a night of celebration. The combination of Megan's eye for detail and vintage touch with Dan's love for live music and having a good time made for a wedding reception that was truly one to remember. As guests filled the barn, many laughs were had, hugs shared, and dance moves busted as day turned into night and the sun sank below the horizon.
Megan & Dan, you two are truly special people. You love for life is contagious, and your love for each other is inspiring. I wish you nothing but the absolute best. May God bless your marriage!
