Justin & Emily | Waldenwoods Wedding | Howell Michigan
Waldenwoods is a wedding venue dream + Justin and Emily’s wedding is a story that needed to have the perfect location. Before you get to drooling over Justin and Emily’s gorgeous wedding day, you have to know their story. Take a few minutes and read Emily’s account of their path here. I promise it’s with the read.
I know, that was a lot, but they have so much to be thankful for, to celebrate, and so much more to look forward to. Since I found out the news after their accident, I know that this day would be magic, and it was everything they could have asked for–right down to the sunset. There were beautiful soft florals, gorgeous clouds over the entire ceremony, a killer group shot of everyone that attended the affair, a crazy-good sunset visible from the dining room, and SMORES! I thought about a favorite moment, but it’s so hard. Over the year as I kept up with their story and healing, I imagined the two marching back down the aisle married. So, I had to pick, those few minutes were absolutely triumphant and possibly some of the most meaningful moments of the day. But there were many others that were a close second.
Congratulations, Justin and Emily!
