Samantha + Tim Wedding | Farmington Hills

A few weeks ago I documented the wedding of Samantha (Sam) and Timothy (Tim).  The wedding took place at the Finnish Center in the beautiful Farmington Hills, MI.  These two were probably the most laid back couple ever!  Sam was walked down the aisle by her ever so gentle grandfather and he was so proud!  It rained in the morning but was crystal clear by the time the ceremony was set to start; perfect timing.  You know what they say if it rains on your wedding day?  It’s supposedly GOOD LUCK so it looks like you’re starting this thing out right!  Congrats you two, I couldn’t have been more honored to document your celebration of love.

Sharnae + Jerry | Silver Gardens Wedding

It’s been nearly a week since this wedding and I am still smiling from the memories that were shared and created. Sharnae and Jerry were married at the beautiful Silver Gardens Event Center in Southfield, Michigan. This venue has always been a gem in my eyes and near and dear to my heart.  As a child, I remember riding by the venue on the school bus every morning and wondering what magical things took place in the uniquely shaped building.  I finally had the honor and privilege to photograph an event here. The wedding ceremony took place in front of the beautiful gazebo located in the intimate garden equipped with its very own waterfall. The beautiful bride was escorted down the aisle by her proud and a tad bit nervous father. She was beaming with excitement and anticipation to marry her handsome groom that she initially met in elementary school. After fifth grade they went to separate schools but it was meant for them to reconnect and become one. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Congrats you two and welcome to the family Jerry!  #MeetTheOdensIMG_6614 IMG_8809 IMG_8775 IMG_8856 IMG_8988 IMG_9102 IMG_9360 IMG_9526 IMG_9535 IMG_9553 IMG_9601 IMG_9724

Jackie + Charles Wedding | Kreps Apple Barn | Temperance, Michigan

Yesterday, I photographed the beautiful wedding of Jackie & Chuck at the amazing Kreps Apple Barn in Temperance, Michigan.   It was 97 degrees and an absolute beautiful day to confess your love.  Jackie was an amazing bride to work with,  she was kind,  easy going and the total opposite of a “bridezilla”.  Chuck is truly her match as he probably thanked us 40 – 50 times for photographing their wedding; not that I’m complaining!   The newly renovated Barn where the couple had their first dance was absolutely gorgeous!   We were surrounded with fields of meticulously placed apple trees, all in perfect formation.   This venue was a perfect fit and truly matched this couples personality.  I had a great time and hope to visit this location again soon.   Congrats Jackie and Chuck!

LaToya & Anthony’s Wedding | Lower Huron MetroPark

I had the absolute pleasure of documenting the wedding of LaToya and Anthony, in the beautiful Lower Huron Metropark. LaToya was glowing while she elegantly walked down the aisle to a beautiful song, sang by her sisters, in a cappella! The ceremony was full of small, intimate, details that caught the eye of all her guests.   A string of photo’s that gave us all a glimpse into the life of LaToya and Anthony; even the centerpieces signified what the act of marriage means to them. Thankfully, the rain held out until all of the festivities concluded. Congratulations again Mr. and Mrs. Turner!
