Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor Wedding: Evan & Ariel

After their paths crossed for the second time, Evan and Ariel discovered that maybe it was more than a coincidence.  Four years later, with graduate school, world travels, renovating a home behind them, they said "I do." With endless more adventures to conquer, they now take them on as husband and wife. 

One learns a lot about a couple in a short about of time while photographing them. It's impossible to overlook not only the love that Evan and Ariel share, but also how much they simply enjoy one another. She looks at him and you immediately see the strong respect and admiration she cares for him, and he reciprocates as he glances back at her.  I just loved being able to photograph these two and all of the special elements of their day that so strongly represented their beliefs and heritage. 

Special thanks to Rachel from Purple Clover EventsPot & Box Florists, and the staff at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.

Before the numerous traditions of the day took place, Evan and Ariel took a moment to themselves...and the smiles and reactions of seeing one another for the first time are priceless.
