meadow brook hall wedding: christina & john


Christina and John are super detail-oriented and driven to make things exactly how they want them to be… the very definition of a “Pinterest couple” (and I definitely mean this all as a compliment!) There were personalized hangers, a custom-made outdoor sitting area made just for photos, balloons that said “love”, specific straws, etc. Literally, not one detail wasn’t thoroughly thought through by this stylish couple. They chose for their ceremony at one of my favorite churches in Detroit, The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament (I’m a sucker for checkerboard floors!). It was a beautiful ceremony, and then we headed out to Meadow Brook . They had a huge bridal party, which was super fun and they were actually far more compliant with photos than I was expecting from this big party crew. Christina and John live in New York, and I felt like they brought a sleek, sophisticated NY vibe into their reception style. I LOVE bold and contrasty black and white, so I was super excited to see how amazingly well the black tables and chairs contrasted against the billowy white draping of Meadow Brook’s tent. Their bold and angular black and white cake by Holiday Market was awesome, the all-white flowers by Viviano's were perfection, their invitations by Katie Dixon Design perfectly represented their style, and their band, Eclipse totally rocked the house. Congrats to this gorgeous, super fun, and high-energy couple! It was an amazing day and you’re clearly very loved by lots of people!

detroit athletic club wedding: erin & christopher


Erin and Chris are super chill, which always makes photographing people a bit easier, and it also helps that they both look like models and together they’re a knockout couple. Their wedding was at two of my favorite Detroit locations, The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament (I mean, those awesome black and white checkered floors!!!) and the Detroit Athletic Club (which is pure historic perfection). The day started with the getting ready at the DAC and a beautiful prayer circle among the bridesmaids. Their ceremony was lovely, and then we headed off to the Detroit Institute of Arts for some photos. Even though the DIA was under construction we were able to squeeze in among it to still get some awesome shots, and then we took a few more inside of the DAC and up on their rooftop. Blush pink is THE color of the season, but I will NEVER tire of it, so that’s ok with me! The flowers by Viviano's were perfectly tied into the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses, and I love the muted color of the greenery in the bouquets (one of these days I will commit to learning the name of those leaves because I love them so much). It’s really impossible to not have a stunning reception at the DAC, and I loved all of the different marzipan layers of their gorgeous cake. The formal dances were sweet and the Simone Vitale Band kept the party rocking. It was a perfect day all around!

Townsend Hotel Wedding: Laila & Dustin


There’s always something so elegant about weddings at The Townsend Hotel, and Laila and Dustin’s wedding was no exception! Laila looked SO gorgeous and I especially loved her super long veil, and Dustin looked completely dapper. It was a lovely day with a threat of rain that never happened - perfect weather for such a perfect couple. After their sweet first look moment, we bounced around downtown Birmingham for photos with the bridal party and then it was back to the Townsend for their beautiful ceremony. Laila and Dustin’s gold and white decor theme was gorgeous and perfectly executed by Natalie Trycieky. Their all-white flowers by Emerald City Designs made quite a statement, their cake by The Townsend Hotel was stunning, and Lee's Specialty Invitations did an incredible job on their sophisticated invitations. Congrats to this great couple - may the rest of their life together be as perfect as their big day!

meadow brook hall wedding: emily & eric


I will literally NEVER tire of photographing weddings at Meadow Brook Mansion. We do a lot of weddings there and we LOVE IT! Emily and Eric’s lovely wedding did not disappoint (not that I thought it would). Their day began with getting ready at The Royal Park Hotel followed by their beautiful ceremony at St. Irenaeus Church. I was dazzled when we arrived to Meadow Brook and I saw how perfectly decorated it was. The lace linens were exquisite and they perfectly matched the sweet invitation and their adorable vintage cake topper. Speaking of the cake, Sweet Heather Anne's worked on arranging the flowers on it for literally 45 minutes before the guests arrived, making sure that every single flower was in the perfect spot. I loved watching this cake artist in action! And the rest of the floral decor by New Creations was perfect too… especially Emily’s insanely gorgeous bouquet. This is one stunning, sweet, and intelligent couple and I am SO happy for them! Congrats, you two!

planterra wedding: jessie & matt


This wedding was at one of my very favorite venues, Planterra , with the world’s sweetest couple. To say that Jessie looked beautiful on her wedding day is an understatement - this girl’s skin literally glows and she is SO pretty! And Matt looked dapper and is her perfect match. The day was flawlessly planned so that nobody was stressed (or if they were they surely didn’t show it at all), and Matt’s mom really stepped up and did an incredible job. Planterra always does an outstanding job with the flowers, but these pops of pink were absolute perfection. The cake by Jefferson Bakery was adorable, the guests had a blast, and two perfect people have now become one. Congratulations, you two!
