We wandered amongst the apple trees and Claire and Ken picked apples as we went along. These two really love the dramatic arts and so when I voiced to them that I felt like the trees might come alive any minute, like in the Wizard of Oz, they got my reference right away! . . .Read More
I am freaking out over here, friends!! Katie and Josh’s wedding day was so amazing and Katie made SUCH a gorgeous bride!

Katie and Josh were my last CCP Couple to get married this year and I loved all the thoughtful and personal details they incorporated into their church wedding and river front reception. . .Read More
During our initial meeting, Emily had me at the words, "Our wedding will be rustic with a vintage flair!" Emily and Jordan also told me how they are planning a wedding day that gives their guests an experience - think caramel apple and s'more bar, lawn games, and more! I love how much these two love their families and that everything about their wedding day next year screams fall. (Which is also my favorite season!) . . .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
As a tall, beautiful, young woman walked into the room with her brown wavy hair falling softly around her face, framing her green eyes, Brent thought to himself, "Oh yeah, she's in my league," speaking of Sam and not long after that they shared their first kiss in the basement of the Theta Chi fraternity basement. Sam is one of the warmest, most lovable people I have ever known and I think Brent, who is funny, kind, and laid-back, is lucky to call my Chi Omega sister his wife.
The day Sam and Brent exchanged vows was a perfect September day in the fall at the Concorde Inn in Charter Township of Clinton, Michigan. Sam was surrounded by her closest friends and family as she prepared for the ceremony with the movie "Animal House" playing in the background on the TV - so fitting for this greek bride and groom I think! - as her cheeks were swiped with blush and her lips blotted. Brent started the day off at home with his groomsmen and family and while tying his bow tie and figuring out the complexity that is cuff links, the family's cute Brittnay Spaniel danced around everyone in excitement for the upcoming vows.
Although Brent loves it when Sam wears flats, on your wedding day, shoes are almost as important as the dress and Sam wore Anne Klein heels, customized by the bride herself with a little shout out to her Chi Omega sisters. Sam walked down the aisle with her father to "Can't Help Falling in Love" and happy tears were shared by all as this couple took their marriage vows and exchanged their bling. Then the celebration really began as guests, all family and close friends, danced the night away enjoying the personalized M&Ms and shot glass favors, got silly in the photo booth, tossed bean bags in games of corn hole, and as laughter and an out pouring of love permeated the air.
Sam and Brent...you are two of the nicest, most kind, and lovely people I've had the chance to work with and call friends. Your families are amazing and I can't thank you enough for allowing me to document your love. The love you share makes those around you better. I wish you nothing but the best together...and enjoy Jamaica!
