When Jolie and Stu contacted me about photographing their intimate wedding surrounded by their closest friends and family...at a $10 million dollar mansion surrounded by lush garden and with private tunnel access to Lake Michigan, I was obviously intrigued. I mean, really? Sounds like a photographer's dream.
And, they weren't exaggerating. Lush foliage surrounded the windy streets leading up to the secluded estate and hydrangeas and weeping willows grew freely. The bride looked stunning in a Victoria Sdoukos couture gown and pearl drop earrings. Her gorgeous bouquet included pink, peach and soft-colored roses and hydrangeas.
The sweetest little flower girls and ring bearer danced carelessly around the garden overlooking Lake Michigan like a vision out of a dream. The intimate wedding took place on the private beach area and was followed by a BBQ style dinner cooked by their favorite chef. After dinner, a gorgeous cake by Amy Beck Cakes and lots of champagne, the couple danced their first dance in the garden surrounded by beautiful purple, blue and orange sunset colors.
Congratulations Jolie + Stu! I wish you all the happiness in the world and am honored to have been a part of your dreamy day. Enjoy the sneak peek!
