Mr. and Mrs. Glidden | Romantic Lake Wedding | Union Lake | Commerce Township, Michigan

FILED IN: Wedding

Imagine this: there are 7.5 billion people in the world and you’re making your way through life trying to the find the ONE. The one person who makes you laugh until your belly hurts. The one who loves you through your flaws while also inspiring you to be a better version of yourself. The one who knows just what you need to feel safe and supported even when you may not know it yourself.

Now imagine that you’ve found that person against all statistical odds. You’ve found this person and you’ve been blessed beyond measure with a beautiful & soul nourishing relationship {and also put in the very difficult work–relationships aren’t easy!}. You’ve grown your family by welcoming a sweet and compassionate little boy into the world to guide and nurture. You’re surrounded by the most kind, supportive and inviting friends and family that you could ever ask for. And now you’re ready to make this shit legal!

You’ve done all the planning and created the vision for your perfect wedding day. This is happening and you can’t wait! But…then…the dream comes crashing down around you. You have two choices. You can pick up the pieces and create a new vision together OR you wait.

If you’re Andrew and Erica, you’re done waiting. You have everything you’ve ever dreamed of and you know deep down in the belly of your being that everything that will matter to you when you look back at your wedding day is already here.

Three venue changes and countless altered expectations later and here we are, looking back at AJ and Erica’s perfect day, and I don’t say that with any hesitation. You see, perfection in this context meant 3 things:

  1. Rain or shine {there was definitely rain} there was an incredibly romantic and sentimental outdoor ceremony.
  2. Being surrounded by the love and support of friends and family.
  3. Having Shauna {that’s me!} there to document all of the joyful and tender moments.

I may have added that last one just for me 😉

AJ and Erica,

I was brought to tears so many times as I witnessed your loved ones swept up in such emotion and overcome with their love for the two of you. It was so evident that you have found your soul mates in each other and I couldn’t have been more honored to play a role in your journey. You will always have my love and support!
