Holly Micro-wedding: Emmaleigh & Zachary

The anticipation was palpable.

You could have heard a pin drop.

Emmaleigh smiled and started to walk towards Zachary, her fiancé, as she told him to turn around.

He turned around to see his beautiful bride walking towards him.

It was just them in this perfectly intimate and beautiful moment.

They embraced, tearfully, and there was a new air of relaxation. Their shoulders relaxed and they could breathe.

Seeing each other had relieved so much of that “wedding day tension.”


Emmaleigh and Zachary, the new Mr. & Mrs. Marin, were married in the stunningly beautiful Holly Vault Chapel in Holly, MI surrounded by only their family members. These two have been through the wringer in planning their wedding. Venues closing, global pandemics, plans changing seemingly hundreds of time. It was not an easy journey to get to this day.


Emmaleigh and Zachary,

Thank you for letting us be a small part of your wedding day. It was truly such a beautiful ceremony and we were honored to witness it.

You two have shown so much strength, patience, and determination in planning your wedding. Those character traits will serve you well in your marriage as you learn every day how to love and serve each other. Much like the journey to your wedding day, it won’t always be easy. Plans will change, life will be crazy, but you two will do it together.

We are so excited to celebrate again with you next summer and to see what life holds for you as you start your life as a married couple!

Much love,

Sarah & Ryan
