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!!!

We are so thrilled to announce we are a 2018 Wedding Wire Couples' Choice Award winner!  As the graphic above says... we are being recognized for being in the top 5% of wedding professional nationwide.  THANK YOU so much to our amazing couples for all the LOVE and continued support!  You guys made this happen!  THANK YOU!!!

We seriously had so much fun at this wedding!  Meghan + Matthew are two of the most likeable people you could ever meet and together they make one sweet couple!  M+M held both their ceremony and reception at the Masonic Temple in Detroit (check out the ballroom in their film - doesn't it look amazing!!!).  Prior to their ceremony, we were able to sneak off to various locations around Detroit to capture some great footage of them and their hilarious bridal party having some fun before the "I Do's".  Then, it was back to Masonic Temple for their wedding ceremony, which was beautifully officiated by Meghan's grandfather.  Meghan admitted to being "a big attention to detail person" so besides capturing all the "big moments" of the day in their film, we tried to include all the special little details that made their wedding uniquely them (and Meghan worked so hard putting together).  Gotta say, we're excited with how it turned out!  Shout outs to photographer Ryan Southen and planner Robin Wilson (Curtsy and Bow Events) for being so much fun to work with!  And, of course, the ballroom looked so amazing courtesy of the floral team from Bellisario Florist (great job, as always).  Congrats, Meghan + Matthew - here's to many happy years together!

"We are so unbelievably happy with how the highlight film turned out!  It is exactly what we had hoped for!!  I cried the moment it started and couldn't stop until it was finished!  Thank you again for everything, we are just so thrilled..."

When planning a wedding, I'd venture to say most couples hope for sunny skies and beautiful weather.  This is even more true when planning an outdoor wedding in Michigan, where the weather can often be very unpredictable.  In Jordan + Lauren's case, it couldn't have been any better!  They were married at RaOna Acres in Williamston, MI on an absolutely gorgeous summer day!  From bridesmaids in cowboy boots, to groomsmen in matching vests and blue jeans, to boutonnieres made of gunshot shells, this barn wedding in mid-Michigan fit Jordan + Lauren's personalities perfectly.  Their wedding ceremony - complete with pews - took place under the big, beautiful blue sky while their reception was on the second floor of RaOna's rustic Big Barn.  It's always fun working with planner Ashley Lynch + her team from Festoons and Flourishes (who do an amazing job!) and Tamara + Steve Morris from Silver Thumb Photo (who are just a blast to spend a wedding day with!).  It was a beautiful day all around and we were honored to have been a part of it.  Congrats, Jordan + Lauren - here's to many, many happy years together!  Congrats!
