You could say Katie + Tom's wedding day had a Detroit vibe to it.  From their preps at the Westin Book Cadillac, to their ceremony at Old St. Mary's in Greektown, to their reception at the wonderful Colony Club, their day definitely had a "Made In Detroit" stamp all over it.  We had a great time spending the day with Katie + Tom and getting to know them and their families.  We especially got a kick out of the toasts at their reception, which gave all their guests a humorous insight into not just the two of them as individuals, but into how they met and fell in love.  Congrats, Katie + Tom - here's to many, many years of happiness!

What a beautiful fall day for a wedding - the colors were amazing (just check out the pic above)!  Even better than the fall colors was the fact that Marie + Steve (and their families) are just very, VERY nice people.  It was so much fun spending the day with them.  It was also evident from the first second we met them that they were so excited to be getting married.  Their ceremony was held at Holy Family Catholic Church in Grand Blanc with their reception just minutes away at beautiful Warwick Hills Country Club.  It was a real treat filming along side our long-time friend Patrick Abel from Special Moments Photography, as well as the talented team from Laura Davis and Co. (headed by Elise Brzozowski), who are always great to work with.  Not too mention, Stacey Mason and The Jerry Ross Band were there to guarantee a great time was had by all at the reception.  It was a beautiful day in so many ways!  Hope you enjoy this sneak peek trailer of their day.  Congrats, Marie + Steve!

Amanda + Kevin's love story plays out like a Hollywood script full of true love, adversity, and heartache.  Amanda was born with juvenile pilocytic spinal cord astrocytoma, a rare tumor of the spinal cord.  Even though the doctors told her parents the prognosis wasn't good, Amanda was a battler, enduring the first of nine major surgeries when she was just 9 months old.  At 11, doctors put 2 titanium rods in her back.  At 21, she went through radiation therapy.  Doctors told her several times that she may never walk again.  But she battled on, with her boyfriend Kevin always by her side.  With things finally looking good, they made plans for their wedding and her long awaited walk down the aisle to meet him.

Then, as in a Hollywood movie, a turn of events.  Amanda learned she would need yet another major surgery.  They were devastated, to say the least.  All the money they had saved up for their wedding would now need to go towards medical bills.  Not wanting to see her friend's dream wedding not happen, Amanda's maid of honor decided to secretly set up a Go Fund Me page in hopes of raising enough money to cover her medical bills and keep the wedding on track.

Then, something extra special happened...

Wedding planner (and our friend) Laura Davis, of Laura Davis & Co., heard about Amanda + Kevin's story and decided to help out. She put together a dream team of over 25 wedding professionals (most of whom donated their time and talents) to give Amanda + Kevin their dream wedding.  When she contacted us asking if we'd be willing to create a wedding film for them, we answered with a resounding yes!  Amanda + Kevin are such a sweet couple and we were honored to be a part of their day!

Here's a short teaser trailer of their day, highlight film still to come!

Congrats Amanda + Kevin!  Here's to many, many happy years together!  Cheers!

Katie + Tom's wedding day had a bit of everything... sun, clouds, laughter, tears, and yes...the R word (rain...).

What a beautiful summer wedding! Haley + Sam were married at Zion Lutheran Church in Bay City before excited family and friends who were over the moon happy to see them tie the knot.  That's where we first met up with them as they prepared for their big day.  Tears and smiles were abundant as they changed into their wedding finest.  Before long, Haley was walking down the aisle, arm in arm with her father.  After exchanging their vows, it was photo time before the big celebration.  We headed over to Midland for a fun photo/video shoot under the Tridge.  Then, it was on to the Horizons Center in Saginaw for a night of celebrating!  It was a pleasure working alongside Stephanie and Alta from Stephanie Lowe Photography, as well as DJ Ryan Rousseau who had the reception rockin' from start to finish.  Congrats, Haley + Sam - thanks for having us a part of your day! We wish you many, many happy years together!

"We just finished watching the film, and WOW!  It was beyond amazing.  I am so amazed by your talent and how you were able to capture so many moments.  I am so glad we will have something like this to remember our special day.  I can't wait to share this with our family and friends" - Haley

If what they say about rain on your wedding day is true (bringing good luck), then Jenna + Matt should be set for life.  Hey, what's a few raindrops anyway? It certainly didn't dampen the fun and excitement of their special day.  Jenna + Matt were married at First United Methodist Church in Birmingham and held their reception at Oakland Hills Country Club.  We first met up with Jenna and her bridesmaids as they were capping off the finishing touches of makeup and hair at her parents home.  Lots of special moments were captured as Jenna slipped into her beautiful dress moments before her dad caught his first look of her.  From there, it was on to Oakland Hills for Jenna + Matt's first look and a few photos before heading to the church.  After their beautiful ceremony - officiated by Pastor Gary Haller - it was time for their celebration at Oakland Hills.  Family and friends were treated to very special toasts from Jenna's father, her sisters Kelsey and Kristin, and Matt's brother Ben.  It wasn't long before the guests hit the dance floor as the Jerry Ross Band had the place rockin' as only they can.  Matt and the guys even hit the stage to sing a song to Jenna before the band called up the newlyweds to sing for their guests.  It was great to work with planner Carolyn Hefner and her amazing team from The China Closet, photographer Blaine Siesser and his team, Luigi Bruni, Bellisario's, the Jerry Ross Band, and the great staff at Oakland Hills.  Congrats, Jenna + Matt!  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
