Lovett Hall wedding: Amanda & John

8.20.19 - weddings by Kristin G.

This lovely day began at The Henry where both Amanda + John were getting ready the morning of their wedding. Amanda looked beautiful in her gown and I loved the sweet first look with her dad, where he proudly showed us the cufflinks, tie clip and socks that Amanda gifted him for this special day.

We then made our way over to Lovett Hall at the Henry Ford for the bride+groom’s first look in the incredible library, which is always one of my favorite locations! We then walked over to Greenfield Village for portraits with this super fun wedding party and then these two love birds hopped into the Model T for some images of just the two of them. I have to say, Amanda + John were troopers as it was dang near 100 degrees outside! You never know what Mother Nature is going to give you in the summer in the mitten, but they rocked their portraits effortlessly!

Before long we were back at Lovett Hall where they lovingly said their vows and pledged forever. Upstairs, the reception room looked so elegant with flowers designed by MI Honeybee Flowers. Everyone danced the night away with the rocking music from the always incredible Collision Six.

Thank you both for choosing me to be a part of your day! I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations! xo

The Inn at st. john's wedding: Emily & Thomas

8.15.19 - weddings by Courtney

Emily and Tom wedding at The Inn at St. John's in Plymouth was so elegant. I absolutely loved how their colors complimented each other. Lee Floral Design did an amazing job with the flowers! The white roses mixed with blue Hydrangeas looked fantastic with the ladies blue dresses and guys navy suits.

As I entered the room where Emily was getting ready I was so happily surprised to find one of my past brides getting her hair done. She was a bridesmaid in Emily's wedding and Emily was in hers. It is such a huge compliment to have a past bridesmaid book me for their own wedding, not to mention so lovely to visit with past couples of mine.

Emily looked absolutely stunning, her gown was simple, sophisticated, and fit her perfectly. I loved the shoulder straps that draped over her shoulders. And Tom looked equally as great in his Navy suit and bow tie. After a super sweet moment with the first look we headed to the gardens of the Inn for bridal party and family photos. We took breaks from the heat but seriously everyone did amazing and it felt so nice to continue with some extra portraits in the beautiful halls of the Inn.

After a lovely ceremony, it was onto the reception. The room was the perfect choice for their continued sophisticated look. The atmosphere of the room was amaizing. I loved all the flowers, candlelight and the beautiful cake by For The Love Sugar was absolutly stunning! in the perfect shade of blue with gold accents. Absolute perfection.

Their reception was a blast from the moment Emily and Tom were announced! The dance floor quickly filled with happy smiling guests celebrating the perfect day for the happy couple. Lorio Ross Events & Entertainment kept the dance floor going all night.

Emily and Tom I was honored to be able to capture your big day. Congrats to both of you and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.

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!
