Michigan Summer Wedding

The sun was warm, but a cool breeze blew across the fields through Black Sheep Shelter as their closest friends and family prepared for Ashley and Jeremiah's wedding day. Their wedding day was one of the most personal we've photographed. From each vendor they chose to the smallest details like the mugs that lined the reception tables, they made the deliberate choice to surround themselves with people they know and love for every moment on their wedding day.

In both of their getting ready rooms, nothing but joy filled the room. As we talked with each friend they asked to stand with them, we could tell how significant their friendships are in their life—the kind that are so much deeper than a good time together—friends who pray for one another and walk with each other through the best times and the hardest.

As their ceremony began, Jeremiah hugged his mom as tears filled her eyes, her support and love for Jeremiah so visible. Ashley and her dad walked down the aisle arm in arm, her dad carrying a photograph of her mom to honor her role in raising Ashley to become the beautiful woman she is today. And during prayers and speeches, we were overwhelmed by the stories their parents and friends told about who they are and how they love each other. Ashley's bridesmaids and maid of honor talked about her contagious joy and servant's heart, her resilience and quiet strength. Jeremiah's best man told a story Jeremiah never heard during his toast, a surprising twist in their love story that had them laughing together at the head table. He talked about Jeremiah's discipline in his faith, the way his friends value him for his listening ear and his contagious energy.

Ashley and Jeremiah, we were so honored to photograph your wedding day. Thank you for trusting us with some of your most sacred stories, and to capture one of your best days. We wish you the best as you begin your marriage and continue making waves in the world by being you. Love and hugs, Becky & Kaleb.

Becky Dean

I'm a co-founder and lead photographer at Pen and Lens.

Wedding photography is my heartbeat. I love capturing the interactions between the bride and her tribe as they get ready together, the look on a groom’s face when he FINALLY sees his bride for the first time, and the way a dad wraps his arms around his baby girl on her wedding day. Bride and groom portraits make my heart jump and I cry on almost every wedding day.
