Josh + Melissa- San Marino Club Wedding- Troy, Michigan.

2017-03-09_0053

Josh and Melissa are absolutely adorable together. They share a big passion for running- so much so that they incorporated it into their wedding day and Josh even says that running had a part in how he fell in love with Melissa.

From Josh: “Melissa & I share a love of running. I fell in love during our first winter of long run Sunday’s together. We spent many hours on backroads and metro parks.”

We started the day off at Melissa’s parents’ house where the girls were getting ready. It was a beautiful Fall day outside!

Melissa was stunning in her fitted lace dress. I loved the beaded sheer sleeves. So gorgeous! The girls wore short navy dresses that flattered everyone so well!

Melissa’s mother allowed us to take this gorgeous chaise lounge sofa outside for some bridal portraits and we were so glad for it! How gorgeous is this bride?!

Josh got ready with the boys at the church as they awaited the ceremony. Josh looked so handsome in his suit and we LOVED the boutonnieres!

The ceremony was a traditional catholic mass at Prince of Peace Catholic Church. The look on Josh’s face as he saw his beautiful bride coming down the aisle- to die for!

The bouquets were handmade by the bride and her family/friends and were so stunning! The beautiful bright oranges, yellows, purples, and reds were perfect for fall and Melissa’s soft pink bouquet of dahlias was absolutely gorgeous.

We went to Dodge #4 State Park, a beautiful piece of property that sits along Cass Lake in Waterford to take photos. The vibrant orange leaves gave the perfect Fall look. We found numerous tall grassy fields that were the perfect backdrop!

Josh and Melissa’s love of running had to be a part of their day of course! The couple slipped out of their fancy shoes and into their favorite running shoes for some photos. So much fun!

Josh and Melissa’s reception decor was so adorable! Rustic fall decor of pumpkins, wood and gold were beautiful along with small hints of Michigan love!

During Josh and Melissa’s first dance, the wedding party along with other friends and family surrounded the two in a hand-held circle as they closed out their dance. So much love going around- it truly warmed the heart! Melissa mentioned it was one of her favorite parts of the day.

From the bride: “We were surrounded by our favorite people but Josh was the only one I noticed.”

Jake + Cortney- Mount Pleasant Wedding, Michigan

Walls_01

Jake and Cortney first met around the age of 13 playing kickball, but it wasn’t until Cortney began attending college at Central Michigan University that the two started seriously dating. Jake wasn’t attending CMU with Cortney, but had a close friend he would visit and begun to spend time with Cortney during his trips. When the two became serious, they would take turns driving 2.5 hours just to spend the weekends with each other! How adorable is that?!

We love small wedding parties! It makes the day so much more intimate and special. Jake and Cortney and their wedding party were so fun and easygoing. They even rocked out climbing on this brick building for a pretty fun photo! 🙂

Jake and Cortney’s rustic and fall inspired decor was SO beautiful and matched their reception venue so perfectly. We loved the adorable personal pie favors and all of the wooden elements.

Rob + Megan-Boulder Pointe Wedding- Oxford, Michigan

Swanson_01

Megan and Rob are a super adorable couple who met during their freshman year of college.

I always love when brides switch their accessories up or add in something fun and different. In Megan’s case, her and all of her bridesmaids sported baby blue converses (Rob and his groomsmen wore orange converses as well).

Rob and Megan’s dog is a huge part of their life. I first met these two when I photographed their engagement session at Comerica Park in Detroit and they brought their adorable pooch along to participate in the photos with them. Fun fact: Rob also proposed to Megan at Comerica!).

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!

Jason + Randen- Lazy J Ranch Wedding- Milford

Jason and Randen had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception at the Lazy J Ranch in Milford, Michigan.

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.

A friend of Jason and Randen’s lent them an ultra cool bright red vintage Chevrolet truck that we had tons of fun photographing with out in the field!

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.
