The big day is here and Kristen and Michael tied the knot in a beautiful Saginaw wedding ceremony at Horizons Conference Center. I love my sweet laid back couples, and Kristen and Michael are the epitome of that. I teased Michael at one point for making me feel so old. Every time I asked them to do something he’d say “yes ma’am”. Now of course I didn’t take offense, he said it was just a natural instinct for him. But it was just a funny piece of who they are. So willing and trustworthy when I’m bossing them around.

They spent their day surrounded by a small group of their closest family and friends. I got to watch them introduce each other to their relatives in their receiving line. Everyone was smiling and exciting for these two to begin their journey together. Kristen had a few friends that came from further away. That hadn’t been able to meet Michael yet, and watching them welcome him into her life was amazing and sweet.

Special touches dotted the room, from adorable favor bags, to a memorial table to celebrate those that couldn’t be with us, but were watching over the newlyweds. Kristen had a beautiful bouquet made of wooden flowers that was just so unique. The hall sprinkled with beautiful shades or red and navy.

Horizons Conference Center has a set of beautiful and HUGE gates in the front door that made for some unique photos at the end of our day.

After the ceremony, we cut into a cake, did speeches and the guests were fed a delicious meal. Families came together from all over to meet and enjoy each other’s company.

We snuck outside for just a few portraits of the beautiful couple. The grounds of the conference center were sounded by grassy areas. But I fell in love with the wooden wall that the local Menards had on display for us. It sounds so weird, but it was a fun way to break up the greenery all around us. It’s nothing more than a blurry background but it made a unique backdrop for me.

I can’t wait to share Kristen and Michaels big Saginaw wedding day with you at Horizons Conference Center.
