Zak & Michaela Bondy's 2-Day Wedding Celebration | Westgate Chapel in Toledo, OH & Family Home in South Rockwood, MI
When your cousin from Michigan reaches out to see if you would be willing to photograph his wedding, you say an emphatic yes. Zak and Michaela met earlier this year online. Very early on, it was evident that they would be wanting to spend the rest of their life together. That is, after Michaela was not scared away by Zak’s super direct questions and answers. (Still would like to hear how the question on the Holy Spirit is going, you two!) We started to hear word from my dad’s family in Michigan that we should set aside some time for a trip out that way sometime this fall for a wedding. So when the text came, we started working quickly to find the time to do it and were so glad we were able to make it work. Getting to meet Michaela over zoom and then talk all things wedding in the next months were a fun way to get to know the couple before the big day. I had to remind myself while meeting her in person that it was the first time I had met her in person – I’m grateful that relationships can be formed over zoom these days!
Zak and Michaela chose to split their wedding day into a wedding weekend. The ceremony was at Westgate Chapel in Toledo, Ohio, where Michaela grew up, and then the reception was the next day at Zak’s childhood home in South Rockwood, Michigan. It was a fun way to show the uniqueness of the couple coming together as one. When you think about these two, you can see how unbelievably loved they are by those around them. They had so many friends and family members coming together to help them on their big day.
Zak and Michaela, congrats you two! It’s already been almost a month since you said, “I do!” Continue to each day remind yourself that you do in the coming ups and downs of life. Continue to choose each other for better and worse, sickness and health. Continue to lean on Christ as your foundation. Love love!
