It's always a pleasure when we get to film at the Stone Chapel at St. Hugo of the Hills in Bloomfield Hills. It's just so beautiful there, a perfect place for a wedding. On the magical date of 12.13.14, family and friends gathered there to witness Erin + Nate becoming husband and wife. Earlier in the day, we met up with E+N at the Townsend Hotel in downtown Birmingham for their pre-ceremony preparations. You could feel the anticipation in the air as Erin + Nate nervously opened cards and gifts from each other. After a cozy first look inside the Townsend, it was time to head out for a quick photo/cinema shoot around the streets of Birmingham. Being wintertime, it was a bit chilly... but Erin, Nate (and their bridal party) were troopers and we came away with some great footage. Then, it was off to St. Hugo where Father Ron Richards officiated their beautiful ceremony. Fr. Ron has a way of personalizing every wedding ceremony he performs and Erin + Nate's was no exception. After becoming husband and wife, it was back to the Townsend Hotel to celebrate the occasion with family and friends. Congrats, Erin + Nate!
"We absolutely LOVE the film!! It brought back so many happy memories and really felt like a movie - couldn't believe that it was OUR day!! We truly appreciate your time, skill, hard work, and creativity! I think we both had silly grins on our faces the whole we watched it! Thanks so very much!"
