Colony Club Wedding: Samantha & Terrance

1.29.20 - weddings by Stephanie

I just adore New Year’s Eve Weddings! And, Samantha and Terrance’s big day was the absolute perfect way to round out a successful and fun year with Kristen Taylor & Co. This couple is just so sweet and adorable, and the entire event was absolute perfection! The duo began their day at one of my absolute favorite Detroit venues to photograph- The Detroit Foundation Hotel. This Motown gem is gorgeous and full of Detroit flavor- making it the perfect spot for brides and groom sto prepare for their big day!

After a touching first look, and various bridals at The Foundation Hotel, we headed to the Colony Club to finish up our formal photos. The cold and wind made posing outdoors rough. But, the interior of this couple’s reception venue was a wonderful weather backup! The two then held their nuptials at the intimate United Church of Christ. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house as Samantha and Terrance recited their personalized vows to one another. And, no New Year’s Eve wedding is complete without a resplendent party! After a fabulous dinner and drinks, the couple rang in the New Year with their closest family and friends- looking forward to what I’m sure will be a wonderful first year of marriage.

The entire day was simply magical, and I couldn’t be more happy for this sweet and charming couple! Congrats you two!

Birmingham engagement session: Jill & Mason

1.21.20 - engagements by Courtney

The Holiday season is a great time for an engagement session with the extra decorations you can find around town. Birmingham had an amazing tree, Anthropology a fabulous window display and Oakland Hills Country Club beautiful garland. With that and another fabulous couple this session was a photographer’s dream.

Jill and Mason were absolutely wonderful. A great couple who when you meet them you immediately feel how happy they are together. I love that they brought their beautiful fur baby to be included in part of their session. Congrats to you both, I am looking forward to next December!!

Detroit engagement session: Haley & Derek

1.6.20 - engagements by Courtney

I had the joy of photographing Haley and Derek’s engagement session while they were back in town for Christmas. Downtown Detroit was all decorated and made for a super lovely setting. I loved that Haley and Derek wanted some pics wearing coats and were also brave enough to tough out the cold without them. They were awesome and super adorable.

We got to check out some “new to me” spots like Parker’s Alley and the Markets and I really enjoyed getting to spend some time with them. Often grooms arn’t at the initial meeting and it’s always great to get to know couples a little more before their big day.

I’m looking forward to warmer weather and this fabulous couple’s wedding.

Colony Club Wedding: Megan & Sean

12.23.19 - weddings by Kristin G.

This wedding certainly ended my 2019 season with a bang! It was a gorgeous affair to remember and it was for a super sweet couple. Megan is one of those girls that you just feel lucky to know. She’s funny, beautiful, witty and everyone just loves to be around her. The best part is that Sean compliments her perfectly. He is equally as funny, kind, handsome and super sweet. They each got ready at the always gorgeous Aloft Detroit at The David Whitney hotel where they had their first look before we headed out for portraits. Not only did we get some super glam shots at the DIA, but the bride+groom then surprised their family and wedding party by having access to Ford Field. It was super cool to walk around the empty stadium and I was truly belly laughing when Sean stood at the podium in the press room and fielded questions from the wedding party. After that, we headed over to the Colony Club where these two said their heart-felt vows.

The ballroom looked incredible with all of the glowy details, but I do have to say, one of my favorite parts of the evening was when Sean and his mom surprised the guests (and the bride!) with a choreographed first dance that had me laughing (very loudly!) behind the camera. It was all sorts of amazing!

I wish you two nothing but a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!
