Michael & Jillian

July 27, 2022

Jill and Mike planned a December wedding at the H Hotel that spoke to the hearts of all of us winter lovers. From the choice of the bridesmaid’s dresses to the greenery in the decore , it was a winter wonderland.  And I don’t know if I could use that description without bragging that we got the most delicate snow flurries and then later that afternoon Santa arrived on the scene in downtown Midland.  The day was just as much fun as it looked. Some of my favorite moments include Jill and her dad’s first look, the vows (since if you laugh so hard you cry…can anything be more joyful), and of course, finding Santa not TOO busy to capture a few portraits. These two make the perfect pair beautiful inside and out.  We ended the evening with a stunning night portrait just outside of the hotel.

Congratulations, Mike and Jill!
