From the bride on her favorite part of the day:

“When we walked down the aisle after the ceremony. I was so preoccupied with the ceremony that all the people in the pews barely registered until we turned around and our pastor announced us Mr. and Mrs. Saliga. It was so exciting to be finally married and it was heartwarming to see how many friends and family had come out to love and support us.”

We started the day getting ready with the girls. All of her bridal accessories complimented her dress beautifully and fit her color scheme to a tee! All of the bridesmaids even spent the morning getting ready in adorable pink pj shortie sets.

The outdoors surrounding the Lazy J Ranch were beautiful and Jason and Randen’s decor included really cute touches that made it feel cozy including the white curtains with lanterns on their alter and a chalkboard sign reading “Can we get a witness?” directing guests to their seats.

Jason and Randen’s mix of rustic and vintage decor for their reception was gorgeous and really transformed the inside of the barn. The mix of gold, cream and pink tones really shined against the rustic barn wood.

Kim wore a gorgeous beaded lace gown from Elegant Lace Bridal and Tuxedo and her simple stunning accessories gave the perfect compliment to her overall look.

2016-02-18_0009One of the most fun parts of the day was getting to come to the bride’s home on a lake and take the boat out with the wedding party.

From the bride: “One of our favorite memories from our wedding day was taking the pontoon boat out on the lake with our wedding party in-between our ceremony and our reception. It truly allowed us to relax and take in the meaning of this day and live in the moment and try to slow it down.”

Alex and Nick have a SUPER adorable daughter named Ava. She is so precious and was a very special part of their day. She made such a cute flower girl and they even dedicated a special section of their ceremony to her.

2016-02-18_0004.jpg

‘First Looks’ are a pretty common thing for brides and grooms today. Couples really enjoy the idea of getting a few moments during the craziness of the day to enjoy each other’s company in private. Alex and Nick both said the First Look was their favorite part of their special day.

From the groom: “My favorite part was seeing my wife for our first look before the ceremony…I liked getting to do our vows beforehand and have a special moment between the two of us.

From the bride: “I loved it all! Being surrounded by our friends and family was amazing…I loved our first look and getting to just be us by ourselves and really enjoy the moment..”

2016-02-17_0015

Alex made such a gorgeous bride. Her keyhole Alessandra Bridal lace dress was stunning! Her bouquet was an incredibly beautiful arrangement of dahlias, mums, amaranths, dusty miller, and more. Her coordinating fresh floral headpiece really brought the whole entire look together.

A totally romantic and gush-worthy moment happened when Nick surprised Alex during cocktail hour with a song he wrote to her and played in front of all the guests on his guitar. It was such a loving and emotional moment, we even had tears in our eyes!

2016-02-18_0002

Who knew that an urban style farmers market building could be transformed into a totally rad reception venue?! Alex and Nick even included a Mexican-style food truck from Detroit inside the venue and had smokers outside cooking delicious barbecue!

Michelle was such a gorgeous bride! Her subtle sparkling details lended themselves perfectly to her sheath and classic lace dress. Her unique green bouquet was the perfect compliment to it all.

2016-02-17_0003

Michelle and Mike both said that their favorite part of the day was during their ‘First Look.’

From the Bride: “My favorite moment was when I saw my future husband. We did a sneak peek and as I walked down the stairs at the Henry Ford Museum, I could see him standing in front of me. It was so exciting when he turned around and I LOVED having a few minutes where it was just the two of us before the ceremony and reception.

From the Groom: “Hard to choose a favorite, but seeing her for the first time was my favorite part (yes I cried!) Also seeing her mom happy and the rest of the family too was amazing!”

The Henry Ford Museum is such a fun location for a Bride and Groom to have their ceremony and reception at because the historical museum actually allows wedding parties to venture through their exhibits and photograph next to the variety of displays.

We had a ton of fun with Michelle and Mike’s group!

Courtney, the bride, actually works at the Loveless Cafe and Barn. We had a perfect day and gorgeous fall colors that really popped with the dark colors that the Courtney and Josh incorporated into their wedding party’s attire and the overall theme of their decor.

2016-02-09_0005

Courtney and Josh both come from a family of musicians. Using an acoustic guitar for their guestbook was such a fun and personal touch they included at their reception.

2016-02-09_0007

Having a live band was very important to Courtney and Josh since they and their families are all very involved in music. Both the bride and groom’s sisters sang a song for all the guests on stage and the band even invited Josh on stage to show off his drumming skills.

2016-02-09_0008

From the bride, describing her favorite part of the big day:

“Our last dance, which the band surprised us with my favorite song “Turning Page” by Sleeping at Last. As we started dancing, we looked up, and saw all our friends and family forming a large circle around us.”

Jake+ Rachael- Lansing, Michigan Wedding

It was a brisk but beautiful day on January 2, 2016 when Rachael and Jake were married.

Schisler_0002

Rachael has such a spunky and fun personality, it was a blast spending time with her and her girls getting ready in the morning. From the fun custom “Team Bride” tank tops to Rachael’s adorable puppy sticking around the group the whole time, there was a lot of joy and fun had inside the house. The beautiful blue bridesmaid dresses really went well with Rachael’s winter theme and tied in perfectly with her colors.

Rachael and Jake’s reception was held at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in Lansing, a gorgeous venue for weddings. Their winter theme certainly continued throughout their reception decor, with white and blue being the dominant colors. We loved the beautiful cake adorned with cupcakes decorated with beautiful snowflake and ‘love’ word designs.reception

The love that Rachael and Jake have for each other was so apparent and beautiful to see throughout the day. It’s such a good feeling to witness and capture those special moments during the reception as well. From the heartfelt toasts to the emotional first dances, the love between family, friends and especially the bride and groom is so apparent.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Schisler! It was a blast and an honor to capture your special day!

Becca + Joe – Michigan Wedding Photographer – Vision Photography, Inc.

Becca and Joe are such an awesome couple.  They are goofy, adorable and totally in love with each other.  I had the pleasure of getting to know them very well when I photographed a destination for one of their good friends on a Caribbean cruise this past December.  I know, my job is horrible ;o)  We had so much fun zip lining with this duo and getting a true feel for their personalities.  

After the cruise we got together for their engagement session which was nothing short of steamy and romantic.  Joe was a big trooper as we hiked through a park on a very windy day to capture an amazing story of their love. 

It wasn’t long after that, their wedding day was upon us.  The ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Longacre House in Farmington Hills.  This was my first time shooting there and let me tell you, it was love at first site.  This venue is small, intimate and has so much charm! Sara and I were in photographer’s heaven!  Not only do they have beautiful gardens and a gorgeous stone wall, but if you walk down a hill in the backyard it’s as if you stepped in to an enchanted forest.  Don’t even get me started on the bridal suite!

Becca is a total babe and rocked her role as a bride ten fold.  She was a show stopper in her gorgeous gown from Gina’s Bridal Boutique in Milford, MI.  I always love working with them!  I also loved all the DIY details from her headband, to her bridesmaids sashes on their dresses.  Everything was perfect! 

Enough talk, here are some of my favorites from Becca and Joe’s wedding shot by Sara and I!

Enjoy!

Emmy + Devon – Military Wedding – Michigan Wedding Photographer

There is not one single aspect of this wedding that I don’t adore.  How could anyone not love a military wedding on the most patriotic day of the year?! We had so much fun with this couple and all of the traditions that they incorporated in this amazing day.

I am not going to go into any more details, I am going to let the images tell the story.

Jessy + Ben – Wedding – Michigan Wedding Photographer

What happens when you get high school sweethearts, their friends (all since high school or related) and a family who loves to party together?  You get a whole lot of awesome wrapped up in to one wedding.  Jessy and Ben have such a sweet story.  They went to high school together so obviously their paths crossed but more interesting is, Ben’s brother was dating Jessy’s sister so it was a great excuse for Jessy and Ben to hang out and get to know each other.  Ben’s brother married Jessy’s sister and now Ben and Jessy are married too!  One big happy family is bringing on a whole new meaning!

They started the day at their high school, Our Lady of the Lakes where they tied the knot.  Next we visited a park in Clarkston and then went to their home for some more personal photos, which I LOVED!  After that the party was non stop at White Lake Oaks for the rest of the night.

My second shooter, Richa, and I had an amazing time getting to know these two and their families and were honored to be such an important part of their day. 

Here is their story:
