Becca and Michael – MacRay Harbor Wedding

We fought the probability of rain most of the day, but Becca and Michael didn’t let it stop them from an amazingly beautiful wedding. Michael, who is in the US Coast Guard, helped to organize the nautical themed wedding. Becca and her bridesmaids looked wonderful and other than the outdoor ceremony being moved in, the day went off without a hitch.

Best Wishes, Becca and Michael!

Lance and Kaitlyn – Laurel Manor Wedding

Kaitlyn and Lance were last seen in this blog in the fall, when they were planning their big day. It finally came and what a great time was had by their whole family. Daughters Kelsey and London were also happy participants.

Pre wedding photos took place at Kaitlyn’s grandparents home in a great wooded and garden setting and then it was off to Laurel Manor for the ceremony and reception.

Congratulations Kaitlyn and Lance.

Erin and Eric – Michigan State Engagement Session

Although they didn’t meet at MSU, they both graduated from MSU and that bond evenutally brought them together indirectly. Season football ticket holders and true Sparty fans.
 
We spent time wandering around the MSU camputs, which is absolutely beautiful this time of the year. We found some of Eric and Erin’s favorite spots on our trek.
 
Stay tuned for a July 2016 wedding.

Lance and Kaitlyn – Bloomfield Hills Michigan Engagement Session

Kaitlyn and Lance wanted a fall beauty engagement session. Although the trees haven’t completely turned, we still had some nice backgrounds. They also wanted to include their two daughters in the photos, which was a bunch of fun too. The Bloomfield Hills Nature Center provided a great background for the afternoon with this happy couple/family. Stay tuned for a early summer 2016 wedding.

Becca and Mike – Traverse City Michigan Engagement Session

Becca is from Traverse City and Mike was stationed in Traverse City with the Coast Guard when they met. The rest is history. Although their wedding is going to be in the Detroit area, they wanted to make sure they had some photos of the area of the state that is so dear to them. Old Mission Peninsula’s lighthouse and wineries and orchards and downtown Traverse City played as backdrops for the photos. What a beautiful afternoon.

Alexa and Dax are Chicago residents, but truly have a passion for Detroit. Their wedding will be in Detroit in 2016 and they came to “the D” for their e-session photos. We stopped at a few of their favorite spots in Detroit to do some photos. They are big fans of the Movement festival, so we had to stop by Hart Plaza for a few shots.

Stay tuned for more beautiful shots from their wedding day in 2016.

John and Jannine – Detroit and Troy Michigan Wedding Day

John and Jannine have been planning their big day for over a year. With a large family on both sides assisting and in attendance, their day turned out perfect.
 
We started the day at the Embassy Suites in Troy and then headed to Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Detroit. The ceremony was quick and beautiful and then the couple headed out to the streets of Detroit for some fun photos at Lafayette Coney Island and the Detroit Athletic Club.
 
The evenings festivities took place at San Marino Club in Troy. Jannine and John felt the love of thier families being sent their way as they progressed through the evening. Traditional Greek and Italian dances brought the celebrations full circle.
 
Best wishes John and Jannine!

Rachel and Eric – Shepherd’s Hollow Wedding

Eric and Rachel had a beautiful evening under the tall pines at Shepherd’s Hollow. This is one of my favorite golf courses to photograph at because of all the natural beatuy and the way the light comes through the trees.
 
The bride looked radiant and made her parents and the groom proud when she emerged from the clubhouse. Rachel’s brother performed the quick, but meaningful ceremony in front of the couples guests on the back patio.
 
We then had some fun around the grounds of the golf course before heading back in for the celebration and the evening’s festivities.
 
Best wishes Rachel and Eric.

Jennifer and Robert – Historic Trinity and Detroit Athletic Club Wedding

We last saw Jenny and Robert a couple months ago for their engagement session in Birmingham. The big day finally arrived and what a beautiful wedding they had.

The bride and groom both prepared for their day with their wedding party at the Detroit Athletic Club. It was then just down the street to Historic Trinity Lutheran Church for the beautiful ceremony. The church is another of Detroit’s hidden gems that everyone should visit at some point.

After the formalities were finished, it was off to the Detroit Riverwalk and Milliken State Park for some fun photos with the wedding party. A few more fun images were taken back at the beautiful Detroit Athletic Club prior to the celebration.

Great speeches and a great party helped the couple start their new lives together. The main dining room at the Detroit Athletic Club looked amazing for the party.

Best wishes to Robert and Jenny!

Kristen and Nick – Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest Wedding

It was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding. It definitely was a little warmer than when we last saw Nick and Kristen, in early December for their engagement session.
 
Kristen looked stunning walking down the aisle with her father, meeting a dapper looking Nick who had a huge smile on his face. The golf course, Eagle Crest, provided our backdrop for some fun and romantic photos of the happy couple. It was then off to the beautifully decorated tent for the evening celebration. Friends and family kept the dance floor full.
 
Congratulation Nick and Kristen!
