Katie and Matt have been together for ten years, and you can just tell they are so comfortable being themselves together. 50 days out from the wedding, Katie wrote a thought each day in a journal about their relationship to give to Matt on the wedding day. It was filled with adorable little stories as well as some fun lists like how many superhero movies have been released since they’ve been dating.
We had such a blast filming Katie and Matthew’s northern Michigan wedding in Glen Arbor this weekend! It was worth the long drive to be a part of this beautiful event. A Day In May Events built this event literally from the ground up on Katie’s family property on the beach, and the transparent tent was truly stunning! We had a great time shooting alongside Jennifer and Gabe from Hillebrand Photography, and we also go to see one of our past couples Amanda and Daniel!
I think my favorite part about doing a same day edit is getting to see the couple and their family react to their wedding film firsthand. It reminds me that we’re in the business of creating priceless memories for our couples, even though they occurred only hours before! About halfway through their Same Day Edit, Katie started to tear up, and when it had finished she said “I think it just finally hit me that I’m married!!” It was really awesome to be a part of that realization
