the inn at st. john's wedding: amanda & kevin


Well this couple made my job super easy because they’re so beautiful! Amanda has a model-like body and wore her dress like a rockstar, and Kevin looked super awesome too. It was a lovely day at The Inn at St. John's , and it always makes things a little easier when everything is all in once place. Their ceremony was beautiful and their reception in the atrium was stunning. I loved the pale tones of the greenery in the gorgeous flowers that were done by Uniquely Yours , and all of the decor choices were fantastic. And I have to say that I super loved the use of rose gold in their stunning invitations by Wedding Paper Divas . It really was a perfect day for a perfect couple!

lovett hall wedding: meghan & ricky


I say this often but I promise I mean it EVERY single time: I have the nicest clients, and Meghan and Ricky were among the nicest ever! They were so easy to work with, and throughout the day they probably went out of their way to say “thank you” to me at least five separate times (which is wild because it was ME who was honored to be there!). They all began the day by getting ready at The Dearborn Inn, which is where Meghan and Ricky had their “first look” moment. Meghan was a trooper about heading outside for photos even though it was a bit cold, and we were ecstatic to find gorgeous pink cherry blossoms on some trees nearby to use for photos. After that, their wedding officially began at Lovett Hall, where they did both their ceremony and reception, with some photos inside of The Henry Ford Museum. Their ceremony under the beautiful chuppah by Ruby Slipper Designs was sweet, and their reception room was absolutely stunning with a gorgeous cake by Holiday market. Their parents all sat at the same dinner table, which I thought was extra outstanding considering that some of the parents are divorced and remarried and yet they all seemed to get along like great friends (bravo!!). I’m always extra happy when I see that Chateau is the band because I know it’ll be an awesome dance floor… and it was! Ashley from Festoons and Flourishes did an incredible job with the planning and coordination on the wedding day and I could tell that Meghan and Ricky loved working with her (I did too!). Congrats to this awesome couple!!!

the inn at st. johns: jennie & cody


New Year's Eve weddings are LONG days, and if you're going to shoot a NYE wedding you want to really like the couple... and I ADORED this couple and was so thrilled to photograph their lovely New Year's Eve wedding! Jennie and Cody are such incredible people, very thoughtful in all that they do, and not to mention that they're also adorable and so easy to photograph. It was a cold day but they were willing to take photos outside, at least up to the point when Jennie was starting to turn blue. I always feel so badly for the brides who freeze outside for winter outdoor photos while I'm wearing a warm coat and gloves as I photograph them, but those outdoor photos really are worth it! Their ceremony and reception at The Inn at St. Johns was really beautiful, with numerous heartfelt tributes to Cody's dad who had recently passed. Their decor was outstanding and I loved all of the pink blush tones and gold accents. Kudos to Irish Rose, the maker of the beautiful floral arrangements, and I LOVED the floral design on their lovely cake made by Cakes by Stephanie. Their guests clearly had an awesome time and it really was a perfect wedding! Thanks, Jennie and Cody, for choosing me to be a part of your big day! Congrats!!!

colony club wedding: lindsay & hendrik


I LOOOVED everything about this wedding! Not only are Lindsay and Hendrik awesome and sweet people, but their style is just outstanding! Seriously, Lindsay's dress was quite possibly my favorite dress of all time, and her shoes were incredible too, and she looked absolutely stunning. I was also in love with the beaded bridesmaid dresses, and Hendrik looked so dapper in his bow tie - it was all just so perfect! Their ceremony at Old St. Mary's was really beautiful (Detroit has so many gorgeous old churches!). The DIA and the mural on Grand Blvd were ideal locations for photos of this gorgeous wedding party, and the Colony Club was a great venue for their classy wedding. I was super impressed by the flowers done by Emerald City Designs. The tones they chose blended perfectly with the style of everything else. Their cake was outstanding, and I loved their invitations by Wedding Paper Divas. It really was the perfect day for such a sweet couple and I'm thrilled for them!

the inn at st. john's wedding: charlene & quang


Oh my gosh, I loved everything about Charlene and Quang's wedding! Everything was super convenient since it was all at The Inn at St. John's, and it was an unusually beautiful late fall day with a mild temp and beautiful sunshine. Charlene looked so gorgeous and in her gown (and I especially loved the extensively beaded shoulder coverlet that she added to it) and Quang looked very dapper. They had a lovely ceremony with various cultural traditions, after which we headed outside to chase the bit of remaining sunlight with their super fun bridal party (I LOVED the pink/lavender tone of the bridesmaids dresses). Their reception decor was gorgeous! It was awesome to see their cake done in a copper tone (which was made by Bella e Dolce), and their invitations were also outstanding. And OH MAN can these two DANCE!!! Their first dance was a choreographed masterpiece and then the dance floor filled with so many outstanding dancers that I couldn't even believe it. What a fun night for such a sweet couple! Congratulations, you two!!!
