Megan & Matthew // Lake Leelanau, Michigan

Autumn Chic Aurora Cellars Wedding

Megan & Matthew got married under the iconic Willow Tree of Aurora Cellars in September and while I love recapping a wedding experience in my own words, I think the quotable moments from this one sum it up even better.
“This is a first class event. It should be in The Knot.” – officiant & wife

“Stacy, epic” – videographer after getting drone footage of the sunset ride in a vintage mustang (and if Montage Media says “epic”, it’s next level)

“Oh my gosh, we did it!” – Amber from Tonic & Lime bartending after making a 10′ table of signature cocktails appear in stealth mode between the time Megan walked down the aisle with her dad to the time she walked back with a husband.

“This was amazing. We had the best time.” – assorted versions of this line from sweat-drenched groomsmen after dancing their hearts out for hours.

“Top 10 dance floors in my 6 years of being a photographer” – Steph Photo Co (and we can readily agree with her on this rating).

“This was a special one” – Kristy from Island Thyme Catering, who also noted that the whole vendor team brought their A-game. We heartily agree on both points.

“If I could sum up all of my best expectations for this day, they have been exceeded, every one of them.” – The Bride. We love that quote the most.

This one had soul and true to the character of 2023, the experience goes beyond words so enjoy this photo and video recap from the pros.
