Malinda & Chkuhmoen – Pokagan Wedding

Malinda & Chkuhmoen (Chik) had one amazing wedding. I got the chance to visit a beautiful piece of land on the Pokagan band property as well as spend the day with some great people. Their wedding day was beautiful with barely a cloud in the sky. The water there was so clean, clear and pure… It was amazingly gorgeous.

We started off the day at a cabin on the tribal property where everyone was finishing up their breakfast and preparing for the day. Malinda was upstairs getting her hair & makeup done while Chik was downstairs hanging out with the guys getting prepped for the day.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and a brand new experience to me. It was inspiring with the amount of love and respect for the nature around them to embrace them both on their journey together. It was moving.

With the ceremonies over and rings placed upon their fingers, it was time for family photos, drone shots from above and a ride to the reception in an old school Bentley.

The reception took place at “Pop’s” place in Buchanan. It’s a wonderful piece of land and a home that is as impressive as it is filled with fond memories. Malinda & Chik pulled up in the Bentley and was announced into their wedding reception.

As the reception began, speeches were had, dinner was served and cake was shoved into faces. It was awesome. Malinda and Chik have a great sense of appreciation for each other and the playful love they have for one another is inspiring. Having gotten the chance to photograph one of the biggest days of their lives together, you could instantly tell these two will have no problems growing old together.

Congrats you two and thank you SO much for allowing me to be apart of your wedding day. <3
