The Perfect Rochester Wedding Day
Apr 25, 2022
After the stress of postponing their wedding due to covid restrictions on events, Samantha and Jon were finally able to get married and we were over the moon to be there with them to celebrate! For this happy occasion we were all excited to be back to work again so the whole team helped out. We love weddings at the Royal Park because this hotel is absolutely elegant, classic and beyond remarkable. The Royal Park offers an elegant wedding ballroom which can act as a backdrop for your photos or we can use the massive hallways with high ceilings and marble floors. It's just a gorgeous place to photograph. Outdoors also has a creek running along side of it with a path that you can also use for your wedding photos. Let's just call this the perfect venue! Cheers to Samantha + John! See our favorite wedding photos at the Royal Park Hotel below.
KAREN AND SCOTT'S ST. HUGO WEDDING
Jan 9, 2020
Wedding photography provided at both St. Hugo of the Hills and the Bloomfield Hills Country Club Jen and Aaron, who are two of Southeast Michigan's top wedding photographers! We're so lucky to have them on our team! Check out more of Jen's work on our blog HERE. In Jen's own words: "You are my happily ever after..." The sentiment that had been carefully etched onto Karen and Scott's champagne flutes said it perfectly. Theirs was a wedding day that couldn't have gone more perfect, and it was obvious to anyone with eyes that these two were, quite simply put, just meant to be. It was an absolutely gorgeous summer day in late June. The sun was out and there were a few clouds scattering the sky. You couldn't have asked for better weather for Karen and Scott's wedding day. Karen started the day of getting ready at the Bloomfield Hills Country Club, where they were having their reception later that evening. When I arrived, the girls were getting their hair done and enjoying each other's company. Karen was a picture of grace and didn't seem nervous at all. One of the most memorable moments from that morning occurred right before Karen got dressed, while she sat with her mother and bridesmaids on the couch, about to start getting dressed. Karen was given a compiled book of memories, aptly titled "Letters to the Bride," with pictures, letters, inside jokes, etc. spanning the many years of their friendships that her girls had put together for her in an album. Let me tell you...I think that everyone got teary-eyed at that point. It was such a lovely, touching and thoughtful gift that I know will be cherished forever. Once dressed and after some family photographs on the golf course, everyone gathered at the historic St. Hugo of the Hills for their wedding ceremony. The joyful tears and the smiles on their guests' faces made one thing obviously clear...Karen and Scott are so very loved by their friends and family. It was a perfect, intimate ceremony, and before I knew it, they were officially husband and wife. Once back at the country club, we were able to sneak Karen and Scott away for a few minutes to capture some more intimate moments between the two of them before they headed in to be announced and to cut their wedding cake. After the speeches were made and dinner was finished, Karen and Scott had their first dance to Ellie Goulding. After that, light-up bracelets, glasses and foam sticks were handed out and everyone started tearing up the dance floor. It was definitely a night to remember and Aaron and I couldn't have had a more enjoyable time spending such a special day with these two and their friends and families. Congratulations on your new life together! We're so happy for you both!
INN AT ST. JOHNS WEDDING PHOTOS
Jan 2, 2020
Wedding photography for Taylor and Haley's wedding was provided at the elegant Inn at St. John's in Plymouth, by Kellie and Daigna, one of Southeast Michigan's most creative and FUN wedding photography teams! Winter weddings don't get any better than this! We LOVE working at the Inn at St. John's for so many reasons, but the best reason is that it's probably one of the best places in our area to have a winter wedding. The venue is just so lovely inside so regardless of the kind of weather you have on your wedding day, you are going to stay warm, dry and have a place to take great photos. Lucky for Taylor and Haley they had a winter wedding and a pretty nice day as well so we were able to get the best of both worlds for them, but St. John's definitely ranks as one of our faves for this reason. To Taylor and Haley, we LOVED working with you! We have a couple of favorite memories from your wedding day that we'd like to share. The first is watching your friends pray over you and also with you as you waited for your ceremony to begin. Daigna was able to capture some beautiful images as she was back with you both as I waited for you to walk down the aisle. The photos really captured the love that your friends and family have for you. My personal second favorite memory from the wedding day was when Taylor and Haley busted out with the fancy dance moves while we were taking photos in the sanctuary late at night. So much fun and the Inn at St. John's wedding chapel never looked better!
JANE + GREG
Oct 15, 2019
Wedding photography provided at the exclusive Oakland Hills Country Club by Jen and Aaron, who are two of Southeast Michigan's most creative wedding photographers! Jane and Greg's wedding day did not disappoint! We felt like the luckiest team in the world to be able to work with two of the most incredible, kind and compassionate people and take wedding photographs at Oakland Hills Country Club where Greg once worked as a Golf Pro! I hate to admit this but I didn't even know what a golf professional was until I met Jane and Greg. I feel silly but it's true! Jen and Aaron started with Jane and Greg at Oakland Hills where they covered all the bridal party prep and fun before Jane and Greg's first look on the club's famous back porch! I loved their first look and Oakland Hill's back porch was the perfect spot for it. After their first look and a few family portraits everyone headed over to Holy Name in Birmingham where Jane and Greg tied the knot and made their union official. It was starting to rain so we had to work quickly, but luckily we were able to snap a few lovely images outside the church before the rain came down. After the ceremony it was back to Oakland Hills for an enjoyable wedding reception that knocked our socks off. We LOVE the extra special night photos we captured outside and of course the images of Jane and Greg dancing in the foyer of Oakland Hills Country Club. Congratulations to Jane and Greg!!! We are a little behind with blogging so this post is long overdue, but we wanted to share the images! Oakland Hills Country Club is on our preferred list of FAVORITE VENUES!
ANN ARBOR WEBERS WEDDING
Aug 12, 2019
Wedding photography provided in Ann Arbor at Webers Inn by Jen and Leah, who are two of Southeast Michigan's most creative wedding photographers! We're so lucky to have them on our team! Jen says it best, I'm going to turn it over to her and let her tell Ava and Steve's wedding day story! The weather on Ava and Steve's wedding day was perfect outside, with gentle clouds in the sky and the wind giving off the perfect breeze. Walking into the hotel room at Webers Inn in Ann Arbor where Ava and her girls were getting ready, I instantly felt the love and excitement of the day that was only going to grow as the day went on. Mimosas were flowing and there was so much laughter in the air while everyone finished their makeup and hair. Once Ava had been helped into her dress, and her father had his first look with his daughter, they headed out to the historic St. Thomas the Apostle for their mid-day ceremony. Steve and the guys were at the church, having taken some pre-ceremony pictures earlier in the day while finishing off a few Oberons. Steve waited anxiously for the ceremony to start while their guests filled the pews. Once he saw Ava walking down the aisle though, he seemed to instantly relax and he was all smiles-not taking his eyes off of his bride. After a beautiful ceremony, we took advantage of the churches stonework and the pink blossoms that were gently falling from the trees surrounding it. Once we finished up there, we ran by the U of M Law Quad and The Grotto to finish off their picture perfect bridal session. The party really started once they made their grand entrance back at Weber's Inn. The drinks were flowing, laughter could be heard at every turn and the dance floor was full after the bridal dances. What a FUN celebration and everyone went home full of smiles, laughter and good memories! If you'd like to work with Jen we'd love to hear from you! You can view more of her work by clicking HERE.
