pine knob carriage house wedding: katie & matt


It seemed as though Mother Nature could not make up her mind on Katie+Matt’s wedding day, but when it came time to finally get serious, the rain held off and these two had a beautiful, heart-felt ceremony under the pavilion at the Pine Knob Carriage House. Katie looked gorgeous as she was so elegant in her gown and I always think it's so sweet when my brides (and grooms!) get a bit nervous prior to seeing each other or heading down the aisle. A very handsome Matt waited patiently for his bride to come and tap him on the shoulder so he could turn around and see her for their first look and I’m certain that this private moment will always be one of my favorites of the day. Once these two said their vows, we snuck in our portraits and then it was time to get the party started inside the carriage house. The room looked gorgeous, with flowers by Jen House Designs. A Moment In Time did a wonderful job planning the day. The toasts had everyone smiling and the dance floor was full when our time there had come to an end. Congratulations to this super sweet couple! x

oakland hills country club wedding: sarah & ben


I’m going to begin by saying that the fathers of Sarah+Ben are so proud of their children. Not only for the people they have become, but for the people they have chosen to spend the rest of their lives with. That was totally apparent during their heart-felt toasts and it’s easy to see why their families have so many reasons to be proud. I began the day by meeting Sarah and the girls in the locker room at Oakland Hills Country Club and Sarah is as kind and genuine as she is stunning (and as you’ll see, that means a lot!). Her gorgeous gown fit her perfectly and I adored her jeweled Badgley Mischka flats. After we were done getting ready, it was off to the always stunning Saint Hugo where Sarah+Ben said their sweet vows. We arrived back at The Club for some portraits and, like always, the doors on the veranda and wrap around porch of Oakland Hills provided a beautiful backdrop for this stunning couple. Inside the room was decorated with a classic elegance including flowers by Breath of Spring, gorgeous invitations by Lee's Specialty, and the party rocked on with the killer Chicagoan band Sorry For Partying . It was truly a spectacular day and I wish nothing but the best for this wonderful couple! Congratulations! xo

the inn at st. john's wedding: christine & Brenden


There are so many incredible details about this day at The Inn at St. John's that I do not know where to begin. First, Christine is gorgeous and not only did she look absolutely incredible in her sleek, form-fitting gown with a breathtaking cathedral veil, she took it a step further and added a gorgeous, full tulle skirt over her gown for the ceremony. She told me it was because Brenden was not overly enthusiastic about doing a first look and this was her way to change things up a bit. This was such a super fun idea as that meant the first look and portraits were done in her gown, she then donned the fantastic skirt for the ceremony and then took it off for the reception where the rest of the guests would see her gorgeous gown for the first time. SO SMART. These two are such a handsome couple and I know I tend to say this often, but I could have photographed their portraits for hours! Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony and then we were off to the atrium to truly celebrate the day. I’ve shot at The Inn many times and the atrium looked absolutely incredible thanks to the talents of The Gala House. One of my favorite aspects of the room were the thrones brought in as the seating for the bride+groom, which I found out was a detail chosen by Brenden himself. I loved the intricate gold invitations by Jen's Invites. The cake by Patisserie Parmentier was gorgeous and the room was decorated with flowers by Yasmeena's Floral -no detail was overlooked. A huge congratulations goes out to this sweet couple! xo

community house wedding: katie & nick


I had been looking forward to shooting Katie+Nick’s wedding for months and my gut reaction was spot on because it was one killer day! Katie got ready with her sweet parents and best girls at a beautiful suite at the Townsend and while I always love the getting ready portion of the day, the detail I loved most was the delicate lace purse that both her mother and grandmother carried before her. All of Katie’s design choices were divine, but I have to give a shout out to the bedazzled sneakers that she purchased to dance the night away at the reception! Before we knew it we were on our way to Holy Name Catholic Church where an emotional groom waited to greet his bride. Following the ceremony, we headed into downtown Birmingham for some portraits with their rockstar wedding party and I simply could not get enough portraits of this stunning bride+groom. Nick looked so handsome and Katie was a classic beauty. We then made our way over to the Birmingham Community House for their grand entrance. Not surprisingly, the reception room was decorated beautifully with a delicous cake from Mannino's Bakery and gorgeous floral centerpieces. We also loved the invitations by Festivities Studio. I could barely hold it together as Katie’s dad toasted to his daughter and new son (oh my gosh, the tears!) and I’m sure I had the biggest smile on my face as all of their Marquette friends packed the front steps of the Community House for a portrait. You both deserve nothing but a lifetime of happiness! A huge congrats to the new Mr.+Mrs.! xo

lovett hall wedding: alex & blair


Alex+Blair. I truly cannot think of anything that was not absolutely perfect about their wedding day, including the adorable couple themselves. I mean, even their names fit perfectly together! Not only are they both striking, they are the most kind-hearted people and that was very apparent when I saw how much they are adored by their family and friends. These two decided to say their vows over the Fourth of July weekend and the day certainly started out with a bang when we chose the ideal space for their emotional first look. Alex was absolutely stunning (her hair!) and Blair looked so dapper in his suit and bowtie. This glorious day continued as we began portraits at Greenfield Village where the bride+groom were escorted to our various destinations in a Model T with their super-fun wedding party close behind in horse-drawn carriages. Before we knew it, it was time to say their vows and then the party really got started at Lovett Hall, which never disappoints. The reception looked gorgeous with flowers by Flourish Inspired Environments , and delicious cake by Jefferson Market . We also loved working with A Touch Of Elegance , who did a great job at bringing everything together. I wish you two a lifetime of happiness and hope you’re enjoying your well-deserved honeymoon. Congratulations! xo
