Lauren and Joe celebrated the classic beauty of Detroit on their wedding day. They chose to get married in the oldest church building in the city - Ss. Peter & Paul. This stunning location for their vows, in combination with a variety of classic and unique portrait locations left me feeling warm and fuzzy even on a cold late fall day. We even saw the first snowflakes of the year ;) I must also mention that Joe and Lauren are the fourth couple we've had the privilege of photographing who met and fell in love at UM Law! Maybe it's the romantically beautiful architecture of the law quad, who knows, but there are clearly some good vibes happening at that school! ;) I'm SO happy for these two - cheers to married life Lauren & Joe!
Liam is a senior in high school?! Whaaaaa? When did that happen?! It is still crazy to me, and I can't get over it. Liam is my cousin's son... I still remember carrying him around places, and now he's probably a foot taller than me. Anyway, he's an awesome human, and I'm so happy that I got an excuse to hang in Allen Park & Detroit with one of my favorite families. Love you guys and cheers to Liam, 2017!
Looking back on this wedding, it kind of feels like the ultimate DETROIT wedding. Like, if you want to celebrate Detroit's greatness during the course of your wedding day, you should do what Jenn and Jon did. They got ready at the historic Inn on Ferry Street (beautifully renovated homes), were married at the Piquette Plant surrounded by incredible old Ford automobiles, had Slow's BBQ cater their reception, danced the night away, and finished the evening with Lafayette Coney Dogs. Oh, and well, this might not exactly fit in with the Detroit theme, but two of Jon's groomsmen performed a rap and recorder performance as Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. So you can just go ahead and add that to the list of things that made this wedding Oh. So. Good. Congrats you two!
The conservatory on Belle Isle is such a perfect spot for a small wedding. Our dear friends, Fritz and Shahar, were married there last week. We had such an incredible time documenting their day. The ceremony was emotional and meaningful, we sipped on cocktails at Two James, and we finished the evening with an incredible meal at Ottava Via and homemade carrot cake. Cheers to two amazing people - we love you!
I'm trying to fit more blogging into my workflow, and it's perfect because Molly and Phil are so awesome! Check out their engagement session earlier this month in Detroit.
