It's hard to believe another wedding season has come to an end (wow - where does the time go....?). Looking back, we're amazed and thankful for all the weddings we've had the pleasure of filming and the fabulous couples we've met along the way. And, it seems, every year, we've been fortunate enough to wrap up on a high note. This year was no different. I knew Amanda + John's wedding was going to be special from the first time I spoke to Amanda. Her excitement about the day, her wedding film, and having us be the ones to capture it was, well, just infectious! At the time, I really wished her wedding had been sooner in the year but, as it turned out, it was a great way to top it off.
Amanda + John were married at Trinity Lutheran Church in Clinton Twp and held their reception at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Macomb. We first met up with Amanda as she put the finishing touches on her hair/make up at Bianchi's Salon in Clinton Twp. Next up, preps for her and John, and then it was off to the church where Amanda's uncle officiated a very sweet ceremony. One of the highlights of the day was traveling to the Edsel + Eleanor Ford Estate in Grosse Pointe Shores for our creative session. It was such a beautiful location! Being on the lake (and being November), it was a bit chilly. But, the bridal party were troopers and we, along with photographer Jamie Fodale, captured some great footage. The celebration continued at Sycamore Hills as Ron Miller from Elite Entertainment kept the place rockin'.
Thanks Amanda + John for having us a part of your day!
