Blair and I went to Alma College together and remained Facebook friends after graduation. When I saw she had posted about her engagement, I was thrilled to talk with her about photographing her wedding and to meet her fiancé, Cody.
As with all weddings in 2020, COVID had a real impact on their original wedding plans. Their large wedding morphed into an intimate wedding outside at the beautiful Treetops Resort in Gaylord with a gorgeous outdoor dinner afterwards to celebrate at Bennethum’s Northern Inn. If you’ve never been to Bennethum’s, you should go because their food is incredible.
This wedding was an absolute pleasure to capture. These two are so naturally happy together and their friends and family were so supportive; the day was filled with joy, laughter and their handsome-as-heck dog, Kai. Both families treated me as one of their own and it was such a nice day to be a part of.
The weather was everything we could have dreamed it would be and we were blessed with the most gorgeous sunset I’ve seen all year. I’m so happy for the new Mr. and Mrs. Ankenbrandt — I wish you many, many happy years together in your new married life.
