Oakhurst Country Club Wedding in Clarkston, Michigan provided by Kari Dawson, top-rated Clarkston, Michigan wedding photographer, and her team.
Katie was first drawn to Bryan because of his smile, tattoos, and his beautiful eyes that are two different colors! She gathered up her courage and walked across the gym and opened the conversation with ‘you listen to metal music right?’ The answer was yes. After several months of getting to know each other, they began dating officially. The last eight years have really connected and strengthened them as they have navigated some really tough circumstances and choices together. Their families are equally as important. And playing the role of aunt and uncle is definitely a favorite.
Though their wedding day was on the chilly side we were graced with gorgeous sunshine. Katie and Bryan’s color palette of cranberry, grey, and pops of other fall colors could not have come together more perfectly. Katie’s dress was the perfect silhouette and her bridesmaids wore the prettiest wine colored floor length dresses. One of the gals was brilliant enough to wear leggings under her dress. So if you are about to be a bridesmaid in the chilly months, don’t forget to try on leggings under your dress for warmth! All the guys wore classic grey tuxedos and cranberry colored bowties. The contrast of colors in their photos below is stunning. Wait until you scroll to their portraits in the pine trees. One of my favorite, favorite spaces in the area for portraits.
Katie and Bryan I wish you both a lifetime of HEALTH and HAPPINESS!!! I have enjoyed every second of getting to know you both. I am so glad your day was everything you imagined and more!! Hugs – Kari
