Grosse Pointe Wedding: Sarah & David

11.6.19

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when I'm contacted to shoot the wedding of a sister of a previous client because it means they fully trust me, which makes such a huge difference. And when Sarah contacted me I was extra excited because her family is SO incredibly nice, hilarious, and awesome. The day was a bit of a deja vu because she looks so much like her sister, she got ready in their same childhood house, and held their reception at the same beautiful venue, Lochmoor Country Club. Also like her sister Sarah's wedding style was impeccable, she was totally awesome to work with, and she married an awesome guy. This family has it GOING ON!

Sarah and David's ceremony at St. Paul on the Lake was lovely, and they got lucky with perfectly amazing weather. It was a joy to photograph them and their bridal party outside of the church, along the water in Grosse Pointe, and at their country club. Their toasts before dinner make me crack up, and it was undeniable how gorgeous their reception room looked. The champagne and blush decor by Bellisario Florist was amazing, their cake by Elegance in Sugar was simply elegant, their band, Your Generation, kept the dance floor packed, and it's always awesome working alongside Lee Thomas Films Videography.

Congratulations to this awesome couple, I'm so happy for this entire family!

The Townsend Hotel : Jamie & Sam

10.9.19

I absolutely LOVED photographing Jamie and Sam's wedding! First, they're the sweetest people on the entire planet. And they're adorable, I mean, just look at them! Jamie is super detail-oriented (a girl after my own heart who knows that love is in the details!), and she just HAD to have those pink "bride" balloons... and I'm so glad she did because I love them for photos! Her gown, shoes, and well, EVERYTHING was perfect, and Sam looked so dapper.

Jamie and Sam had a sweet little first look moment and then we headed around downtown Birmingham for photos before returning to The Townsend Hotel for their beautiful ceremony. I loved their flowers in white with hints of pink by Breath of Spring Florist, their cake by Home Bakery was perfection, and their reception was such a blast, especially when their band The Brian Alexander Band pulled Jamie up on stage for a fabulous performance. Pat from Party Assurance is always a great planner who kept everything running perfect, and it was great working alongside Visi Productions who did the video.

Congratulations to this amazing couple!!!

Birmingham wedding: Natalie & Scott

8.22.19

Natalie was completely cool, calm, and collected when I arrived, and throughout the whole day actually. It's obvious that she's stunning, but what I loved most was how excited she was to be marrying Scott and how much she clearly loved being surrounded by family and friends for the special day.

Natalie and Scott were married at the beautiful Christ Church Cranbrook, and it was adorable that Natalie's son walked her down the aisle. It was a hot day - like epically record-breaking hot - and yet Natalie and Scott were troopers while we took photos outside.

The reception at Big Rock Chophouse was intimate and sweet. Their close friend Ken of This Beautiful Life handled the planning and coordination, and did a spectacular job. Everyting about this wedding was perfect from the summery white and yellow flowers to the elegant cake made by Big Rock.

I'm so happy for these two and for the joining of their little family. Congrats, Natalie and Scott!

Los Willows Estate wedding: Kino & Greg

8.7.19

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!!!

Detroit athletic club wedding: Abby & Robbie

7.30.19

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!
