During our initial meeting, I could tell Kara and Kevin were going to be so much fun to work with because they both love to laugh and they aren't afraid to be a little silly! On the morning of their wedding, Kara stepped into her vintage-inspired fit and flare wedding dress with the help of her mom and bridesmaids. Every part of Kara's dress was gorgeous and it had just a bit of glam, but I especially loved the back details and her long, elegant train! She looked absolutely stunning as she met her dad at the church's aisle, and Kevin's face lit up with so many emotions at the sight of his future wife as she walked towards him at St. Anne's Chapel in Grosse, Ile. . .Read More

On Sunday mornings, a lot of people like to sleep in, make each other breakfast, go for a walk with the dog(s), sip coffee, and read the newspaper (although I guess most people do that on their smart phones now). On one such Sunday morning, however, Kyle woke up at 6 AM because he just couldn't stay asleep any longer; he was just too excited. After taking Jen's dog, Nala, for a walk and watching the minutes tick by to 7 o'clock, Kyle couldn't stand it any longer! Enough was enough! . . .Read More

Both Jen and Nick share a common love for golfing, and Nick even proposed to Jen on the golf course! It only made sense that they would get married outside on the green and overlooking the course at Great Oaks Country Club! . . .Read More

There is something so honest and wonderful about the way Steve looks at Rachel. . . and when they looked at each other as Rachel walked down the aisle in the intimate St. Anne Chapel in Grosse, Ile, MI, they were instantly connected.

In the past couple of weeks, the importance of family has become paramount to me. Both of my parents recently were hospitalized, at the same time, for potential life-threatening illnesses, and every day I am EVEN MORE thankful for the blessing of my family. This is one reason, amongst so many others, why I loved spending Jenny and Pat's wedding day with them; it was all about family and being together! . . .Read More
I was sitting at my desk, back in March, and working my way through my Monday when I received an email in the afternoon from my college friend, Shannon. As I read the email for a moment I thought, "Oh my gosh! Did I miss her getting engaged on Facebook?!?", but as I read farther Shannon explained that her and Thomas weren't even officially engaged (the ring hadn't arrived yet!) BUT that they were starting to plan their wedding and were curious about my availability between July and September! . . .Read More
Leah and her bridesmaids blotted their lips and curled their hair. Albert and his groomsmen had a few celebratory toasts and fashioned their pocket squares after some helpful guidance from YouTube. As the cloudy day at the Midland Convention Center progressed, the anticipation and excitement heighten as family began to fill into the ceremony seats.
Leah's grandmother had a perfect view at the front as her granddaughter glided up the aisle towards Albert, and she couldn't contain a look of awe and love as Leah walked forward.
Laughter and tears cracked through the friends and family in attendance as the couple each exchanged personal vows which were then sealed with a kiss. Words of hope and long-forgotten stories were shared during the reception toasts and crazy fun dance moves were heavily encouraged throughout the night.
Leah and Albert I wish you so much happiness and success in your new life together as Mr. and Mrs.!
