Joel + Kara- Lafayette Grande Wedding, Michigan

2016-03-16_0017.jpg

Kara and Joel were a blast to hang out with on their wedding day! The crazy part of their story is that they are both Oakland University alumni and both were part of the school’s Cross Country team….except at different times! They knew they wanted to incorporate the track into their wedding photos and we had so much fun with them on the field! They even had a few of our OU spirited photos published in Oakland’s Alumni Magazine for featuring the campus’s track and field on their day.

We loved Kara and Joel’s classic black & white decor. Their theme incorporated Frank Sinatra as their main inspiration. Their centerpieces were vintage cigar boxes filled with beautiful florals and they even had a Frank Sinatra impersonator singing during dinner and serenading the couple’s first dance.

From the bride on another of her favorite parts of the day:

“I also loved hearing our daughter, Jaclyn, give our speech. It was completely from the heart and what I felt wasn’t your average “make fun of the bride/groom” speech.”

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Sellentine! You two are so beautiful together and we loved sharing and capturing your day!

Downtown Plymouth has a lot of cool buildings and areas to photograph around. The Penn Theatre made for some pretty fun photos with the wedding party.

From the bride on her favorite part of the day:

“It so hard to choose! But I will have to say it was probably when it was just the two of us getting our pictures taken at the golf course, there was so mucb of the day where we were around so many people it was nice to be able to have a few moments as just the two of us.”

Unexpected rain changed the ceremony from outdoors to inside the barn, but it was still dreamy and full of love! From the groom on some of his favorite parts of the day:

“(My favorite parts of the day were) Beth walking up to the barn before the ceremony in the rain with a black umbrella. Lifting her up after our ceremony/first kiss where they pronounced us husband and wife…”

Everything about Mark and Beth’s day was rustic and beautiful and their reception decor fit the theme to the tee! We loved their uses of tree bark, all of the baby’s breath and the awesome wood-burned Michigan coasters guests took home as favors. These two showed love for their home state in so many awesome ways!

Cocktail hour consisted of build-your-own mini coney dogs and bags of Better Made potato chips, another awesome Michigan touch Mark and Beth added to their day.

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.
