Michigan Wedding Photographer's Favorite Venues | Pine Knob Mansion Wedding Pictures

Michigan wedding photography at the elegant Pine Knob Mansion provided by Kellie Saunders and her team of creative MI wedding photographers. What I love best about photographing weddings at Pine Knob Mansion is just that - photographing weddings at Pine Knob Mansion. It doesn't get any better than this venue. What an aboslutely stunning backdrop to commit to one another against. Had I realized the gorgeous splendor of this estate years ago when I was planning my own wedding, I may have had my wedding here as well. This was one of my most memorable weddings of all times. Natalia and Pete are an adorable couple originally from Michigan but living out of state. If you know Italian weddings, you know they are full of love, full of laughter and full of about six hundred family and friends! Well maybe not six hundred, but gosh my Italian weddings are usually very big. Well, Natlia and Pete chose Pine Knob and I'm so glad they did because it is a grand venue and one of my favorites. The ceremony was outdoors on a beautiful day with blue skies and summer sunshine. They were married under the gazebo which set a beautiful scene for their vows. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept so I was able to capture beautiful portraits of the couple and their bridal party. One of the best things about Pine Knob is the outdoor area for dancing under the stars at night. Natalia and Pete's band was set up outside so after dinner there was fun and dancing until the wee hours. This was a beautiful wedding, one that goes down in my memory as a favorite. I highly recommend Pine Knob Mansion for your wedding venue. The staff and food are amazing and the grounds lovely. The manionsion itself is grand and historic.

Wellers is one of my most favorite wedding ceremony and reception venues in Southeast Michigan! As a wedding photographer I appreciate it's historic beauty and charm. From the magical tree lined aisles to the gorgeous pergolas and the elegant reception rooms, this place has it all. Over the years I've photographed many weddings here and I've never been disappointed. Rain or shine I've always been able to capture great images. They have an off site home where brides and grooms can prepare and dress for their big day. Afterwards they can head over to the venue where the grounds are always well maintained with lush and gorgeous foilage is all around. There are beautiful trees, seasonal flowers, tranquil fountains and stone walkways. I love their carriage house especially for receptions and if the weather is right - you can dance the night away under the stars outside. The food is delicious and the staff more than accomodating. Tell Wellers I sent you - I know you will love this place!

What I love the most about weddings at the Baronette Renaissance Hotel is that this is just about as stress free as a venue comes. In Metro Detroit there are tons of great venues. As a wedding photographer I love it because it offers me the chance to whisk my couples away for a few moments between dances to capture a few shots in it's gorgeous lobby! At the Baronette, you can have your ceremony and reception in the same room, plus you can use the lovely lobby for family photos in between events. They are experts at flipping a room and I've seen them change a ceremony site into a decked out reception in less than twenty minutes. This is especially important for my jewish couples because there is so much going on for those events. They make ketubah signing easy in one of their board rooms and my couples will usually go back and use that same place as a yichud room. The door locks - so no one will bother you. The hotel staff will wow you - I promise you that! Not only are they hospitable but the food is to die for! If you require special kosher catering they will allow you to bring in an outside caterer. I've included some images from a few weddings I've shot there over the years so enjoy.
