Downtown Detroit was the backdrop for Maggie + Sean's beautiful fall wedding.  From their preps at the Book Cadillac, to their ceremony at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, onto their photo/cinema session on the banks of the Detroit River, wrapping things up with their fabulous reception at the beautiful Colony Club, this was indeed a "Made in Detroit"-type wedding.  Only thing is, Maggie + Sean live in Chicago!  But, luckily for us, they decided to hold their wedding here :)  They also brought in their favorite band from Chicago - Maggie Speaks - to rock the house at their reception.  And rock it, they did!  I don't think many of their guests were anywhere but the dance floor that evening.  It was also great to have the chance to work with event planner Misty Trompeter and photographer Kara Purtell again.  They are both great at what they do and it's always a pleasure to hang out with them.  And, of course, the Colony Club is one of our fave venues, without a doubt!

Congrats Maggie + Sean!!  Many thanks for having us a part of your day!

"We absolutely LOVE the film!  Sean and I watched it last night for the first time and we were blown away. It was everything we had hope it would be and more.  I was crying within 2 minutes of the start ;)  You and your wife did such a beautiful job capturing the day.  The feeling comes through so much in the film, it was like being transported back to our wedding day.  The editing in of the speeches is one of my favorite parts and I'm so happy you suggested we do it that way.  We loved your music choices, too.  They were so fitting and exactly our taste.  We can't thank you enough for creating a beautiful time capsule that we will treasure for years to come.  We are thankful to have this film to always remember the happiest day of our lives so far.  Thank you for all the time and effort and artistry you put into creating this film.  Thank you for everything!"
