From the Photographer… Laura and Zack were married in the stunning Leelanau Peninsula at the oh-so-gorgeous Starry night Barn & Studios. From the first time that Laura reached out to me, we hit it off because of how much we have in common. Both of our husband’s names are Zack, we both love dogs and have two fur babies, love Star Wars and Laura’s a Spanish teacher (I’m a 3rd culture kid who grew up in Latin America)! The similarities didn’t end there though. On their wedding day, I found out that both Zack and Laura also have Scottish ancestry so they did a tartan handfasting during their wedding ceremony and actually used the tartan that’s been used in their family for several generations. The rug at their ceremony site was also Laura’s Grandmothers and held special meaning for them.


Laura’s brother read a poem in German and one of her bridesmaids, Greer, then read the poem in English for the guests. After the poem, Laura and Zack exchanged handwritten vows (featured in their film). At their reception, the couple shared a choreographed first dance as well as a sparkler exit that all of their friends and family took part in.
