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

boulder point golf club: jennifer & stan


The first look for this couple was at the groom’s parent’s farm and when I pulled up and saw it for the first time, I had the biggest smile on my face. The first thing I saw was the shaded wrap-around porch and with a flag flying above the front entryway, this sweet home screamed Americana. LOVE (!). The guys were banished to the barn while the ladies donned their dresses inside the house and before we knew it, it was time for for Jen + Stan to see each other for the first time. Following the emotional first look (I’m not sure Stan could stand another minute without seeing his soon-to-be bride!), we headed to the church and this was incredibly special as it was also the place that these two had first met. The words spoken during the service were fiercely heart warming and before we knew it, these two were husband + wife and we were off to Boulder Pointe to celebrate! I loved their classic white cake with frosted flowers by Mannino's Bakery, and pink and white flowers by Ideal Creation Flowers . The happiness that these two exude is contagious and everyone enjoyed every second of the evening. A huge congrats to this sweet, deserving couple! xo

colony club wedding: lauren & nick


I can't even help it. I think "first looks" are the best thing that's happened to modern day weddings. Everyone holds their own opinion on this, and it truly is a personal decision, but one of my reasons why I'm such an advocate for it was proven again when Nick was waiting to see his bride. He mentioned he had been anxious all morning as we waited outside the DAC for Lauren to come tap him on the shoulder. I told him all that will go away in just a few moments. And after their intimate moment together passed, I asked him how he felt and he said all that was now gone and we can rock on with our day. And we certainly did. The forecast originally looked shoddy, but in true Michigan form, it turned out to be a perfect day for outdoor portraits. Lauren was beyond stunning in her fitted gown and gorgeous waterfall curls. The navy suits for the gents were on point and the wedding party looked incredible. The bride+groom built in ample time for portraits, so I was ecstatic that we were able to galavant around the city prior to their elegant wedding at the Colony Club. The room looked exquisite with floral arrangements by Petit Fleur, and sweets by Love and Buttercream. Blue Water Kings kept the dance floor packed all night. It was such a wonderful day and I wish all the best to the newlyweds! xo

planterra wedding: katie & steve


When a beautiful day happens for a beautiful couple, it makes my heart so full. Katie+Steve are such a sweet duo and it is obvious how excited they are to spend the rest of their lives together. They chose an absolutely stunning venue, and as per usual, Planterra did not disappoint. Katie's Type-A personality speaks to my soul, as it was clear how much thought went into every detail of their day, including every song played at their reception (and clearly she's good at what she does because the dance floor was packed all night!)! One of my favorite moments of their day was the wine capsule during their heart-felt ceremony. In addition to a bottle of wine, they each wrote a love letter to the other and placed it in the box. The reason I loved this so much was that it was meant to be opened if they needed some encouragement during the ebb and flow of their marriage. I felt myself smiling behind the camera during this moment; such a sweet sentiment! I loved all of the reception details including flowers by Planterra and cake by sweet dreams bakery. The party quickly got underway following the ceremony! I already mentioned that the dance floor was packed and Katie was in the center of it all. I love when the bride+groom truly enjoy their day. It was a perfect evening! A big congrats to the new Mr.+Mrs.! xo

planterra wedding: stephanie & jason


I'm fairly certain that if you follow this blog you're well aware that Planterra is one of my absolute fave venues. I've been fortunate enough to shoot many elegant affairs under this glass and let me tell you, Stephanie + Jason's selections were nothing short of extraordinary. I loved arriving just before the bride and watching her take in all of the breathtaking details as she entered the conservatory. It makes me beyond happy when someone as sweet Stephanie is over-the-moon and Jason is her perfect compliment with his kind, funny and outgoing nature. Emotions flowed freely all day beginning with their first look, then during their vows and absolutely during the toasts, where I'm not sure there was a dry eye in the house (including my own!). Their reception details were beautiful, including a white wedding cake by Sweet Heather Anne's adorned with pink and white flowers by Planterra. While I enjoyed so many elements of their wedding day, my favorite aspect was when Jason escorted Stephanie down the aisle and I love that they made their ceremony their own. This day was nothing short of perfect and these two are SO deserving! I was simply honored to be a part of it. A huge congrats to the bride+groom! xo
