We wrapped up our 2016 season with a bang (well, it was New Year's Eve after all...) and Catherine + Christopher were the perfect couple to ring in the new year with: sweet, romantic, and FUN!  Though a little cold outside, it was obvious everyone was in the holiday spirit and ready to celebrate with Catherine + Christopher.  After a beautiful ceremony at historic Old St. Mary's, we headed downtown to the Spirit of Detroit to grab a few quick shots (I did say it was cold outside, didn't I...) before making our way to the Henry Ford Museum and Lovett Hall (which was beautifully decorated!).  Courtesy of toasts from Christine, Shannon, and Matthew, we gained a little insight into Catherine + Christopher as individuals, as well as, the story of how our couple came to be a couple.  The celebration "officially" started when The Dan Rafferty Band took the stage and, as they always do, had the place rockin' like nobody's business.  It's always great to film alongside Tamara + Steve from Silver Thumb Photography: lots o' fun!  Wedding planner Lisa Gephardt knocked it out of the park on this wedding, everything looked amazing and the day couldn't have gone smoother.  Bravo!  Oh yeah, and how about that bow on Catherine's dress... loved it!

Congrats, Catherine + Christopher - here's to many, many years of happiness!  Cheers!

Charlene + Quang's wedding day was full of family, friends, traditions, and lots of love.  From the nervous excitement during preparations, to their beautiful chapel ceremony, to the toasts at their reception, it was easy to feel the love in the air.  Not only between Charlene + Quang but between their families.  Congratulations, C + Q, here's to many happy years together!

"Thank you again!  You and Lisa did such a great job!  Quang and I have watched it twice (ok, maybe three...or four...), and we absolutely love it.  Our family has said nothing but great things and have shed a tear re-living the day (just like us...!)."

Marie + Steve couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for their beautiful fall wedding: sunshine, great temps, and trees full of bright orange and red leaves.  Definitely one of those amazing fall days in Michigan!  Marie + Steve were married at Holy Family Catholic Church in Grand Blanc where Father Brian Chabala officiated a beautiful ceremony (complete with flower girls tripping their way down the aisle - so cute!).  After their ceremony, we headed to Warwick Hills Country Club for photos + video out on the colorful grounds.  It was great to work alongside our friend Patrick Abel from Special Moments Photography.  Before we knew it, it was time for the start of the celebration - as all their guests surrounded the dance floor, Marie + Steve danced their first dance.  It was a pleasure (as usual...) to work with Stacey Mason and The Jerry Ross Band, who had the dance floor packed all evening long!  Everything ran so smoothly that day and we can thank the talented team from Laura Davis and Co. for that.  Bravo!  Congratulations, Marie + Steve, here's to many happy years together!

"...it is amazing!  Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day in that perfect video.  Also, to include the ceremony and all of the toasts as well is a beautiful touch.  Thank you does not begin to say how grateful we are for everything you and Lisa have done.  How you worked seamlessly with Patrick the day of and captured all of the special moments was truly brilliant.  Thank you so much, we will forever be your biggest fans and will always recommend you."  - Steven and Marie

"What a BEAUTIFUL Video you and your wife created for Marie and Steve!  Thank You for your loving touch!  It is so beautiful and will be cherished and enjoyed for many years!!!  We all sat and watched it together yesterday and everyone was smiling and enjoying every minute of it! Thank you for all you both did!  You and Lisa were so "quiet"...we did not even know you were filming!!!  So perfect, the entire day!  You are definitely doing what you are meant to be doing…it is a real gift!  Thank You again!  I would recommend Lee Thomas Films every time!!!!"  - Colleen…Mom of Marie and Steve!

Wabeek Country Club was the setting for Rachael + Jonathan's beautiful wedding day.  A day full of family, friends, laughter, tears (happy ones, of course!), and the celebration of their love.  In the tradition of their Jewish heritage, they signed the Ketubah amongst their closest family and friends before reciting their vows under the Chuppah in front of all their gathered guests.  Following dinner, it was time to hit the dance floor and celebrate the night away. They even found a few minutes to sneak away to sample the delicious offerings of the grilled cheese truck outside - yummy!.  Congratulations, Rachael + Jonathan!  Here's to many happy years ahead!  #HappilyEverGerstein

"Lee, I don't know how to thank you for capturing the most amazing day of our lives! You truly did an amazing job and we can't wait to share it with our families!  We are so happy that we chose you to capture it all!"

Haley + Evan held their wedding at the beautiful Planterra Conservatory in West Bloomfiled, MI.  In front of happy family and friends, they said their "I Do's" before enjoying an evening of toasts, dancing, and even a few rounds of "The Shoe Game" (a take on the Newlywed Game, which had their guests - and themselves - cracking up...).  Congratulations, Haley + Evan, we absolutely loved being a part of your day!  Here's to many, many happy years together!

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!

"The video is absolutely amazing!  Everything about it was absolutely perfect, down to the music!  Thank you again!!!!"
