Royal Oak Engagement Session: Amy & Nick

12.5.18 - weddings by Courtney

Amy and Nick had an amazing engagement session. What made it extra special was that they not only picked out super cool locations but I actually got to spend a little “Sunday Funday” with them. We literally did a shortened version of how they spend a day date together. We met at The Detroit Zoo where they often bike to. We visited the butterflies and penguins and then stopped off at Royal Oak Brewing Company. The décor inside the brewery was so cool we could have spent the entire day there but they had even more goodness planned out. Our last location was at their home where they introduced me to their cute kitty’s. So not only did Amy and Nick pick the perfect set of locations but they are such a kind, fun loving (can you say best rainy-day photos ever?) and gorgeous couple. I truly enjoyed every moment and am looking forward to your wedding day. Congrats!

The Henry ford museum wedding: Alexa & Nolan

11.29.18 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

I love sweet couples such as Alexa and Nolan. L.O.V.E! The threat of bad weather loomed all day, but ultimately it all worked out. They got ready at The Henry Hotel , where Alexa transformed into an absolutely stunning bride, before heading to their ceremony at The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, which is one of my favorite churches in Detroit because of it’s black and white checkered floors and great lighting. It was a beautiful ceremony that was then followed by a long bar stop for the bridal party (what a lucky bridal party, and perfect that it was the day of the Michigan vs. State football game) while I photographed Alexa and Nolan around Greenfield Village. Alexa’s parents got married at the chapel in Greenfield Village, so we were sure to stop there for a few photos. The Henry Ford Museum never disappoints because it has so many great spots for photos, and it was fun to wander around photographing this couple. Alexa and Nolan’s parents coincidentally danced to the same song on each of their weddings days years ago, so Alexa and Nolan chose that song for their first dance as well. I just love that. And Alexa and her dad were hilarious during their first dance when they changed into custom converse. Their Detroit-themed decor was all incredible, their flowers by Lashee Floral and Events were elegant, and it was fun that they opted for ice cream pops rather than a wedding cake. It was all-around a lovely day for a lovely couple and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it!

Aloft Detroit Hotel Wedding: Beth & Eric

11.29.18 - weddings by Kristin G.

I’m just going to gloat here for a moment and say that this may very well be the only wedding held in an insanely fabulous room at the Aloft Detroit at The David Whitney and it was nothing short of spectacular! In fact, that was the vibe the entire day. Not only are Beth+Eric gorgeous, but they are equally as wonderful people and I was so happy to be a part of their day. Beth donned her gown at the Aloft Hotel and I knew today was going to be incredible as I shot a few bridal portraits inside those marble hallways before we went to meet her groom. The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament held their heartfelt ceremony and there was pure joy on everyone’s faces as Beth’s father escorted her down the aisle to meet her very dapper groom. After that it was off to the DIA for some portraits with their super fun wedding party, with a pit stop at The Belt for a few more shots prior to heading back to The David Whitney Building. This industrial black and white room was completely transformed with all of the greenery and florals by Jen House Design, golden touches and glowing candlelight. I loved their cake by The Epicurean Group, and Purple Clover Events did a wonderful job at keeping everything on schedule. Not one detail was overlooked and it was so great working alongside the Killer Creations video team. I wish these two nothing but a real-life happily ever after. Congratulations! xo

Grosse Pointe Engagement Session: Eva & Allen

11.27.18 - engagements by Kristin G.

Eva+Allen are not only super fun, but they are super sweet, too. I met them at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House for their engagement shoot and I absolutely LOVED how they dressed the part. Eva looked incredible in her form-fitting black dress and Allen so dapper in his blue sport coat. We walked around the property and I simply could not get enough of how photogenic they are! My fave part of our evening was when Allen popped the bubbly and smiles+toasts ensued. Plus, they even thought to bring me a glass — isn’t that the sweetest ever? This is going to be one heckuva wedding and I am so, so excited! Congratulations! xo

Detroit Historical Museum Wedding: Emily & Joe

11.20.18 - weddings by Courtney

If you love Detroit you will L-O-V-E this wedding. It was an absolute dream to photograph at a ton of my favorite downtown spots but mostly because of how wonderful a couple Emily and Joe are. Laid Back, happy and kind as can be. These two made my job so dreamy. We started with getting ready photos at the Detroit Marriot at the Renaissance Center. The view from the room and everything in it was amazing. Emily had added a bit to the design of her dress which absolutely made it perfect and she was beautiful. Emily and Joe had their first look out on the River walk and with the wind blowing in their hair they couldn’t have looked happier. We drove off to a whirlwind of Detroit locations for pics with the first spot at the Joe Louis Fist.... where Joe proposed. Their ceremony was in the Guardian Building where they were surrounded by family and friends and they had the sweetest way to remember loved ones who have passed into their ceremony. They personally handed out white lily's representing each person and you could just feel the room filled with love. 
The reception was at the Detroit Historical Museum and was seriously the coolest. The strolling dinner was amazing! Everywhere you turned there was something super delicious to eat. Sliders with their initials grilled in the buns, mini grilled cheese, Faygo floats for dessert and their beautiful wedding cake by Love & Buttercream were just some of my favorites. The reception room looked gorgeous with Flowers by Twigs & Branches Floral, and Jennie of Beautiful Day Planning kept the day running smoothly. As our coverage ended we packed up with huge smiles on our faces while the dance floor, under a replica Tiger Stadium, rocked on! This was seriously one of the best weddings with a serious nod to the best of Detroit. Congrats to you both.
