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


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.”


Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. MacGregor! You can truly feel the love between the two of you in your presence and we were so happy to be able to capture your special memories!

Andrew + Jayme- Shepherd’s Hollow Wedding, Michigan.


Jayme and Andrew started as friends for years until they realized their friendship was something much bigger. After falling in love, Andrew proposed to Jayme by surprising her with a Christmas present containing an ornament saying “Will You Marry Me?” and then getting down on one knee. How romantic!!

The two were married at Shepherd’s Hollow golf course and banquet center in Clarkston, Michigan. This venue is so gorgeous! It’s revealed down a long winding drive surrounded by a forest of tall trees. The scenery was perfect on their day with the foliage being a beautiful lush green all around. We started the day off getting ready with the girls. I was in love with all of Jayme’s stunning accessories!


We then headed off to Shepherd’s Hollow where the girls would get dressed. Jayme looked stunning in her fit-and-flare dress with layers of swirling tulle on the bottom and the girls looked beautiful in their long pink dresses with illusion lace on top.




I just have to say- I LOVE navy/blue suits on grooms. It’s a change of pace most of the time and Andrew’s suit went PERFECTLY with everything about the day: the wedding party, the venue, the flowers, the reception decor. IN LOVE!



The couple expressed that the “First Look” was their favorite part of the day.

From the two:

“We loved the first look and having that intimate moment be just between us. We were able to spend a couple minutes of time just the two of us.”




The bouquets containing stunning vibrant pinks, greens and blues and big beautiful dahlias were gorgeous against the girl’s dresses.






Scattered rain throughout the day called for an indoor ceremony instead of celebrating outside but it didn’t matter. Everything went perfectly and was beautiful as ever! Having their friend marry the two of them was a very personal and heartfelt touch to the ceremony!


Jayme and Andrew did SUCH a wonderful job with their reception decor. Everything was so thought out and you could tell they did a lot of hard work! The tiny succulent place settings were one of my very favorite details along with the blue lace table runners.



The sky cleared just in time for dancing and the setting for Jayme and Andrew’s first dance was probably the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Layers of string lighting outdoors as dusk fell surrounded by gorgeous woods- jaw dropping and perfection!




Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Harding! We had SUCH a blast being part of your special day!

Mike + Michelle- Henry Ford Museum Wedding- Dearborn, Michigan

Mike and Michelle were married at the Henry Ford Museum. We love this venue because they feature a number of gorgeous rooms in their

building, each with a different look.




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.


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!




Mr. and Mrs. Kramer’s reception was inside the “Museum Plaza” room. Their beautiful florals and vintage inspired details really transformed the space into something magical.


Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Kramer! We were so honored to capture your beautiful and special day!
