I am so excited to share the images from Emily and Jordan’s amazing wedding day because their whole celebration from their first look to the decor was out of this world gorgeous! Not only are Emily and Jordan just laid-back, funny, and kind, but they are both very adventurous! You see, their wedding day started off with sunshine and clear skies, but shortly after they shared their First Look, some dark clouds rolled in and it started to pour! . . .Read More
Sometimes when you meet a person, you just instantly know you're going to like them. That's exactly how I felt when I met Allie for the first time at our initial meeting! And then we proceeded to talk about her wedding, the love of her life, Jason, my photography style, the fun things both her and Jason love to do together, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the Walking Dead . . . for almost 3 HOURS!! . . .Read More
Marita and Kirt's wedding day was so relaxed and laid-back and all their family and friends in attendance could not stop smiling the entire day because of the amount of joy and love surrounding these two individuals! To top it off, Marita and Kirt had a truly magnificent fall-colored backdrop at the Solitude Links Golf Course & Banquet Center in Port Huron, MI where they held their reception! . . .Read More
On the morning of Alana and Kyle's fall wedding day at Waldenwoods Resort in Hartland, MI, Alana was all smiles as she stepped into her vintage lace wedding gown with the help of her sisters, bridesmaids, and her mom. All the girls were laughing and joking as they helped Alana with her earrings, out of her quirky, cat-in-outer-space socks and into her Badgley Mischka shoes, and even spritzing her perfume before she walked across the property to share a first look with her groom-to-be Kyle! . . .Read More
Throughout the majority of Lindsay and Corbin's wedding day at The Valley in Ann Arbor, MI we were dodging rain clouds! Thankfully for Lindsay and Corbin, these little bursts of rain seemed to last about ten minutes at a time every half hour. So for those thirty minutes between showers, the sky became this amazing overcast texture and was rain-free for them! . . .Read More
As I walked into the bridal suite at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center the stormy clouds that had been dominating the morning sky had finally started to dissipate. Lindsay breathed a sigh of relief at the news of a rain-free wedding day and she finished up with her hair and make-up styling. The Detroit skyline and river were the backdrop on this dreamy day, with elements of the city finding it's way onto the invitations and reception decor.Read More
On a chilly December afternoon in Frankenmuth, Katie and Jerry strolled amongst families and holiday shoppers perusing the shops for Christmas gifts and enjoying the festive cheer in the air. And as if out of a fairytale, they came upon some horse-drawn carriages. Much to Katie's shock and surprise Jerry insisted that they go for a ride. It was then, as the horse hooves clopped over cobble stone streets and as they rode past the Bavarian inspired village, that Jerry proposed to Katie.
Jerry is such a guy's guy, who loves to fish, work on cars, and has some pretty awesome one-liners in his repertoire. Katie is so sweet and is the type of girl who, as a child, spent many Sunday afternoons in her grandmother's basement listening to old records and polka dancing. On their wedding day, in downtown Detroit at the Masonic Temple, Katie prepared in a medieval bridal suite which was complete with suits of armor and big, beautiful, dramatic windows. As her bridesmaids helped her into her wedding gown, the most anticipated moment of the day had finally come; when Katie's father would walk her down the aisle to Jerry.
Tears sneaked out of their parents eyes and laughter burst forth from Katie and Jerry as they said their marriage vows in the very European inspired chapel. With her burnt orange, red, and yellow flower bouquet in hand Katie and Jerry made a truly unique and show-stopping exit in Jerry's red corvette!
We traveled to Katie's family farm outside of the city and captured some romantic bride and groom photos beneath a vast blue sky. Katie and Jerry's guests cheered at their arrival at the Romulus Progressive Club for their reception, where Katie's parents had held their wedding reception about 40 years prior (how cute!) and everyone danced the night away.
Katie and Jerry, I hope you are having so much fun in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and Savannah, and it was such an honor and a joy to be a part of your wedding day. I with you nothing but adventure and happiness together!
