KAY AND JOSEPH'S WEDDING | ROSEWOOD INN LANSING, MI

It's not often I get the chance to photograph a wedding for a family I love as much as this one.  I've known Kay and her family for almost a decade - though it truthfully feels like a lifetime.  They introduced me to the delicacies of Skyline Chili and Graeter's Ice Cream, and even if that was the extent of our friendship, I'd be eternally grateful.  
I count each of them friends, and I'm so thrilled for Kay and Joseph.  Someone at the reception described their first impression of Kay as a "nerdy music student."  In reality, she and Joseph are both ridiculously talented musicians (www.bellaruse.com), and are - in every way - a perfect match.  
I couldn't wait to share a few images from their wedding, so here are just a few of my favorites.  If you'd like to see the entire gallery when it's ready - simply click here.
