The Carriage House at Pine Knob: Kathryn & Joe

10.9.19 - weddings by Kristin G.

I asked Kathryn if she was as calm on the inside as she appeared on the outside; she smiled. When she slipped on her gown in the bridal room of The Carriage House at Pine Knob, she looked absolutely classically beautiful. Once she was ready, we slipped outdoors for some portraits, being careful to not run into a very handsome groom. Outside, Kathryn saw her father and brothers for sweet first look moment and her Dad then gave the ceremony site a once over, as his own Milarch Nursery provided all of the gorgeous plants and flowers for the occasion.

Following the ceremony it was time to head inside to celebrate this beautiful couple. I have to say, I’ve heard a lot of toasts in my day, but I was truly belly laughing at the Maid of Honor’s poem dedicated to the story of Kathryn+Joe. The room was decorated beautifully and I was thrilled that these two were game to pop outside at the end of dinner for some dreamy sunset portraits.

It was a wonderful day and I wish these two nothing but a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!

The Dearborn Inn: Amy & Nick

10.9.19 - weddings by Courtney

I absolutely loved everything about Nick and Amy’s wedding. From Amy’s gorgeous mermaid gown with off the shoulder straps, to Nick’s blue suit to the “keep it spicy” hot sauce favors. This day was perfection.

The getting ready happened at The Dearborn Inn where each room was buzzing with excitement for the happy couple. Amy and Nick had such a sweet first look moment near the front entrance where they were able to privately read their vows to each other. (I loved this intimate moment so much)

We were then able to go over to The Henry Ford for bridal party photos. I could have stayed there all day especially in the gorgeous clock tower room, the chandeliers are incredible! It was, in fact, Amy & Nick’s wedding day so we made our way back to the Dearborn Inn for a beautiful outdoor ceremony with gorgeous flower arrangements by Thrifty Florist .

The reception hall looked fabulous with dramatic lighting and navy and white accents that carried throughout the room. It looked completely elegant. The dance floor was filled with smiling guests throughout the night in wonderful celebration of the happy couple.

Congrats to you both. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your special day.

Downtown Detroit engagement session: Shannon & Markus

10.2.19 - engagements by Kristen Taylor

It's always a joy to photograph and gorgeous couple who is down for anything and has great ideas of their own, which was the case with Shannon and Markus! It was a lovely day in downtown Detroit with stops at the Detroit Institute of Art and at this gorgeous mural in the west village. I absolutely love how they look at one another and I know their wedding at Planterra next year is going to be amazing!

Congrats, you two!

Palazzo Grande wedding: Eva & Allen

10.1.19 - weddings by Kristin G.

If I could describe this day with only one word it would be: FAMILY. What a gorgeous and heart-felt affair! I began my day at Eva’s family’s home that was filled to the brim with loved ones as she got ready for the day she had been planning for so very long. She is absolutely stunning and truly transformed into a queen before my eyes as she donned her incredible gown and cathedral length veil. As soon as she was ready, the music and dancing began and did not stop until reception ended in the early hours of the next morning.

Her family began the celebration with her and, before long, the groom’s family came, danced, sang and swept her away to head to the church for their ceremony. Allen looked so very handsome standing at the end of the aisle waiting for his bride in the beautiful Our Lady of Redemption Melkite Catholic Church. Following the ceremony, it was time for portraits with this super fun and uber glamorous wedding party! The sunlight was perfect and I’m glad we made the trek up to the open field to wrap up Eva+Allen’s portraits because they are STUNNING!

The reception at The Palazzo Grande was transformed by Elegante Productions into glowy goodness with candles, incredible florals, and gold accents every where you turned. It was truly magical. The couple was again greeted with love, cheering and dancing by all of their friends and family as they made their grand entrance and the celebrations did not stop! I had the best time with this wonderful duo and wish them nothing but happiness!

Congratulations, you two! xo

The community House Birmingham wedding: Katie & Matt

10.1.19 - weddings by Stephanie

I had such a fabulous time photographing Katie and Matt’s lovely wedding! This particular couple is just so, so sweet and down to earth. And, every detail of their day was completely perfect.

Katie was an absolute dream in her beautiful gown, and Matt didn’t look too shabby himself. LOL! The obvious love and affection the two share for one other was palpable, and only enhanced their outward loveliness.

The couple chose to hold their ceremony at the Ss. Peter & Paul Jesuit Church . This was my second wedding in a row that took place there, and I couldn’t have been happier. With its gorgeous architecture and historical prevalence, it is the perfect location for couples to say “I do”.

We then headed to The Community House Birminghamham for the reception which was decorated elegantly with purple accents and floral centerpieces by Breath of Spring Florist. We were able to sneak in a few last minute photos of the bride and groom in the gorgeous backlit courtyard of The Community House. The couple then celebrated the beginning of their life together with their closet family and friends, and everyone danced late into the night thanks to the band Cancel Monday.

It was the perfect ending to a perfect day, and I couldn’t be happier for Katie and Matt!
