stone Chalet Inn wedding: Lisa & Anvit

8.15.19 - weddings by Courtney

This family sure had a lot to celebrate the week of Lisa and Anvit's wedding. Not only was there an amazing wedding but Lisa’s sister’s second baby made an early arrival into the world just two days before. So, what do you do when your sister can’t make it? You Facetime her into the ceremony. Just a wonderful reminder that whether people are near or far their love is always present.

For the ceremony and reception, Lisa and Anvit chose the Stone Chalet Bed and Breakfast Inn. It was such a great choice! There were so many cool little spots to find for photos and the home-like atmosphere was perfect for their smaller intimate wedding.

Lisa looked stunning in her beaded gown, an elegant updo, and classic red lips and Anvit handsome in his suit. It was so sweet how he looked after his bride all day and Anvit was exceptionally helpful as we staged a surprise appearance from Lisa’s 18-month-old nephew who snuck away from new big brother duties to give hugs to the bride and groom.

The reception was decorated with beautiful floral arrangements by Brighton Florist. However, my favorite detail of Lisa and Anvit’s wedding had to be the food. Chef Raunaq Savur outdid himself big time. All the food was amazing and I think every plate in the house was licked clean!

The entire day was wonderful and I am so thrilled to have been able to capture their day. Lisa and Anvit congratulations and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Los Willows Estate wedding: Kino & Greg

8.7.19 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

Kino and Greg are SO sweet! And they were incredibly laid back on their wedding day - it was clear that they weren't stressed at all and were just excited to enjoy the day together with their family and friends at their intimate wedding at Los Willos Estate.

In addition to being sweet and laid back, Kino and Greg are also hilarious. Kino made her groomsman wear a flower crown (he was a champ about it) and Greg arrived to the ceremony on a little motorized car and made hilarious gestures as he came down the aisle to greet his beautiful bride. And Kino really did look so beautiful!

I really loved the style of this wedding from the soft, muted florals by Little Hill Floral Designs to the adorably rustic cake by Cakes to Celebrate!. Lauren at Events by Pure Lavish did an incredible job with the planning, and it was a pleasure to work alongside Paul of Paul Kwak Films.

Congrats to this wonderful couple!!!

Villa Penna wedding: Lea & David

8.2.19 - weddings by Stephanie

I have been looking forward to Lea and David’s wedding day ever since I spent a beautiful fall evening photographing their engagement session.

The two of them are absolutely adorable, and are naturals in front of the camera! They made our jobs as photographers easy, and their entire event was sheer perfection.

The couple started the day getting ready at The Royal Park Hotel in Rochester. This venue is one of my favorites for a number of reasons- one being how much photographic potential all the rooms have. With the bridesmaids donning their matching robes, we were able to capture some lovely images right off the bat!

I love what a giving heart Lea clearly has. She is such a kind person and presented everyone with special gifts as a “thank you” for being a part of her and David’s day. I must admit, I may have shed a few joyful tears at her thoughtfulness.

Lea and David looked smashing in their attire, and their ceremony and reception at Villa Penna perfectly matched the couple’s quiet elegance. All of the details of their day were beyond perfect from the florals by Floral Designs by Lori and a dessert table that would give the best bakeries a run for their money!

I am so happy to have been chosen to capture Lea and David’s big day, and wish them all the best in their future together!

Detroit athletic club wedding: Abby & Robbie

7.30.19 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

Abby and Robbie are a super fun couple and they got married at one of my favorite Detroit venues, The Detroit Athletic Club! I started the day with photos of the ladies getting ready at Abby's parent's beautiful Grosse Pointe home, and from the very start, the vibe was all smiles and happiness.

I absolutely loved Robbie's reaction to Abby during their first look moment... so sweet! They're such an adorable couple and they both looked stunning.

I loved everything about the styling of their wedding, from the blush bridesmaids dresses, the lovely white florals with subtle pops of pink by Viviano flower shop . The couples ornately beautiful cake and elegant invitations completed this timeless look. And it's always great working with Evis from Visi Productions.

Abby and Robbie's families and everyone there were so nice and so fun... it was an all-around perfect day! Congrats to a great couple!

San Francisco Engagement Session: Morgan & Mike

7.24.19 - engagements by Kristen Taylor

Morgan and Mike are getting married in Michigan however, since they're currently living in San Francisco they really wanted to have their engagement session photographed there so we made that happen!

They're an ADORABLE couple, incredibly nice, and it was a lovely afternoon with them. I always love photographing in new locations, and Morgan selected such great spots within the city to shoot (Lands End and Baker Beach). It was a super foggy day (not uncommon in San Francisco) and I was worried that there would be literally no background in the photos since the fog was so thick, but by the time I got over to the coast it was a bit more clear. I would have loved a bit more sunshine in the photos but at least the light was nice and soft, and this couple is so gorgeous, so it was all pretty perfect.

Congrats to this awesome couple! I can't wait to photograph their wedding!
