Sarah and Michael’s Indianwood Golf Club wedding was just the most perfect day for the nicest couple. These two are truly genuinely the sweetest, both to each other and to me! Their wedding day at Indianwood Golf Club was truly magical.
We started the day with getting ready photos at the venue. The guys were downstairs and the ladies were upstairs. I know getting ready photos aren’t for everyone, but I think they add context to the day in telling the story of the day. I really love the photos of Sarah and her mom and sister in the getting ready space.
Getting married in a church was important to these two and they ended up using the space at St. Paul Community Lutheran Church in Pontiac. Before the ceremony, they did a first touch moment around a door. They had written letters to each other and read them privately. I really recommend including moments like this in your day if you can – it just makes it all the more special.
After a beautiful ceremony – yay they’re married – we did a few portraits at the church before heading back to Indianwood Golf Club for the majority of the portraits. This wedding party was super kind and cooperative – which is always appreciated when the timeline is a little tight!
We got the MOST amazing sunset for this Indianwood Golf Club wedding. I don’t know what it is about golf clubs but they usually have the most amazing spots for sunset photos. Indianwood was no different! I loved the quick sunset session we got in. There’s never any pressure from me to do sunset photos, but I do think it’s nice to step out for a hot second and just take a break together.
My favorite part of the reception was the Greek and Polish dancing that happened right before I left, honoring both Mike and Sarah’s heritage. Seeing their friends and family join in was super fun! I am Polish and I wish I could polka like Sarah and her mom!
