Bride and groom kissing for wedding photos after wedding in MI

Wow! Sam and Stevan’s fall wedding in Michigan was so stunning and an absolute favorite of mine! They chose Revival Wedding Barn as their venue and it was perfect for them! These two are so cute together and I actually recently had a cozy in-home photo session with them which you can check out here! Sam and Stevan have been together for a decade now, but they are still undeniably in love. Just the way they look at each other is so beautiful! Come see more of this stunning wedding day below!!

Sam + Stevan’s Love Story | A Fall Wedding In Michigan

The Martinez’s first met when they both attended Sam’s Filipino church which Stevan had started attending because one of his family friends attended. At first, Sam and Stevan were actually frenemies, but as time went on they started to take interest in one another! Stevan was actually Sam’s first boyfriend, first kiss, and even first breakup (but only for a year!) They obviously got back together which I’m so thankful for because if not, we wouldn’t be reading about this love story which was so obviously meant to be! Sam and Stevan are so different from one another, but you know what they say about how opposites attract, right?! These two just can’t stay away from one another! Once they got back together after their brief breakup, Stevan proposed on their trip to Disney World! Talk about a truly magical marriage proposal.

Intimate First Touches & Flashy Sparkler Send-Offs!

Sam and Stevan incorporated so many unique things into their wedding! Sam did a first look with her bridesmaids and their reactions were so cute! The Martinez’s also did a first touch, but before the first touch they had a fake first touch where the groom’s friend pretended to be Sam. It was so funny! I think the laughs helped calm the nerves a bit! Afterward, Sam and Stevan did their real first touch before walking down the aisle. They even prayed together which was so precious!

Sam and Stevan had a champagne tower at their wedding which always makes for some amazing photos! Sam had a separate reception dress which she changed into after their champagne tower and she was STUNNING! The Martinezs and their wedding guests definitely know how to party it up and their dance floor was full the entire night! We were able to do some flash photos right before their sparkler send off and it was so much fun!
