Michael's father started off his toast noting that Chrissy + Michael were both born on Christmas Day. "What are the odds of that?", he asked.  However, what he didn't realize was that one the filmmakers capturing their day was also born on Christmas Day (yes, me...).  Now, what are the odds of THAT...?!! LOL!!  Not only do Chrissy + Michael both have Christmas birthdays but they also met for the first time at a Christmas party (I'm sensing a recurring theme here...).  Chrissy + Michael were married at St. Florian Catholic Church on a beautiful, warm summer day.  After tying the knot, they headed to Belle Isle for a quick photo/video session before it was on to St. Mary's Cultural Center to celebrate the night away.

Cheers, Chrissy + Michael... here's to many, many happy years ahead!

We'd been looking forward to this wedding for almost a year.  From the first time we met Lindsay + Nathan (and, Lindsay's mom Jill), we knew it was going to be special.  All day long the weather teased us.  At times, it was cloudy.  At times, it was sunny and beautiful.  And, wouldn't you know it... right before they said their vows, the clouds let loose and it poured!  Luckily, we were all safely under the tent outside the Royal Park.  But, you can definitely hear the sound of the raining hitting the tent as they said their vows.  Did that stop anyone from having fun and celebrating the happy couple..?  No way!  Everyone moved inside to the ballroom where the party continued in grand style. 

Congrats, Lindsay + Nathan!  Here's to many years of happiness - cheers!

"WOW, it is absolutely wonderful.  Not a dry eye in our house. You and your wife did a phenomenal job.  Thank you again.  We loved it!" - Jill, Mother of the Bride

What a day for a wedding... beautiful bride... handsome groom... fantastic weather... Roary, the Detroit Lions mascot (Jenna is a Lions cheerleader, after all!)... and, the city of Detroit as a backdrop!!!  Jenna + Kristianth were married in front of their closest family and friends at the Colony Club (which was decorated with beautiful floral arrangements courtesy of Kristianth's mother - it looked amazing!).  They wrote their own vows which were the perfect combination of touching and humorous.  Then, it was time to celebrate as everyone danced the night away.  We particularly loved the 2 First Looks... Jenna + Kristianth's, AND, Jenna and her dad's.  Both were so touching and sweet.  You could just feel the emotion.

Congrats, Jenna + Kristianth - here's to many, many years of happiness... Cheers!

If there was one word we'd use to describe Leslie + Jeremy's wedding day, it would have to be FUN!!!  From start to finish... fun.  A lot of that had to do with Leslie + Jeremy themselves, as they're just so warm and friendly (and fun...) to be around.  They met during their sophomore year at U-M and have been together ever since.  Jeremy's proposal came when a bunch of their friends visited Boston (where they live) for the weekend.  What originally started as a night out with friends, ended up turning into a surprise engagement party.  Well, a surprise to Leslie anyway ;)  Congrats, Leslie + Jeremy!  We hope your teaser trailer brings back fond memories of your fun day!  #itmossbelove

What can we say about this couple other than they were such a blast to hang out with on their wedding day!  Well, how about a little back story... they met at a house party 4 years ago... Nathan proposed to Lindsay on Christmas Eve 2016... and they (along with their bridal party and family) really were fun to spend the day with.  Not too mention, they make a very cute couple!  It was also great being able to spend the day with some of our friends in the wedding industry: Laura, Marianne, and the amazing team from Laura Davis and Co., Marek from Dziekonski Photography, The Dan Rafferty Band (who had the dance floor rockin' as usual!), Bellisario Florist, and, of course, the Royal Park Hotel. 

Here's a sneak peek into their fun day.  Film coming soon!  Congrats, Lindsay + Nathan!

How many of you can claim you met the love of your life in elementary school...?  For longtime sweethearts Lauren + Brian, that is exactly how they met.  So, as you can imagine, their wedding day was a dream come true.  They were married in the beautiful stone chapel at St. Hugo of the Hills and held their reception at Planterra.  We were so honored to have been chosen to capture this couple's wonderful day.  We loved the toasts given at their reception by their dads, and, by Lauren's sister and Brian's brother... touching and humorous at the same time!  They really gave insight into their loving relationship.

Congrats, Lauren + Brian - we wish you many, many years of happiness!!!  Cheers!!!
