This year we closed out our wedding season in downtown Detroit, when we had the privilege of filming Julie’s and Steve’s wedding. The ceremony took place at the Sweetest Heart of Mary Catholic Church, still one of the prettiest churches in the city. It was a beautiful service, filled with love as the couple exchanged their vows in front of family and friends. The photo/video shoot was incredible. We followed Julie and Steve and their amazing bridal party around the city capturing the sites and sounds of a city aglow for the holidays. The reception at the Detroit Athletic Club was filled with wonderful food and heart thumping music provided by DJ Nicholas Hardy of Elysium who kept the party going into the night. It was an amazing day! Julie and Steve may you have all the happiness the future will bring. Thank you for allowing us to be part your day. Congratulations!
October 14, 2013 — The end of September found us back home in Livingston County at the beautiful Oak Pointe Country Club in Brighton filming Leah and Chris wedding. The spectacular weather along with a picture perfect setting near the lake was breathtaking as the couple exchanged their vows in front of family and friends. The golf course and lakefront provided us with wonderful creative opportunities as well as fun and laughter. The reception featured amazing food, heartfelt toasts and an evening of dancing that we won’t soon forget. Leah and Chris your wedding day was amazing and you have our fondest wishes for a lifetime of happiness! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your day.
September 15, 2013 — We kicked off September with Rachele and Michael’s wedding. Their day began with preparations at Rachele’s home and then it was on to St. James Catholic Church in Novi for a lovely ceremony full of tradition. Mike promised forever to his bride and Rachele did the same with happy tears glistening in her eyes. The photo shoot with our favorite photographers, Samantha and Brian of A Thousand Words took us throughout the City of Detroit finally ending up at Comerica Park and Foxtown. The reception at the historic and spectacular Henry Ford Museum was amazing as always. Guests were free to roam the museum between toasts and dancing. Rachele and Mike we hope that you have a lifetime of happiness together as you embark on this journey. Congratulations!
August 23, 2013 — A beautiful August Saturday took us to two of our favorite venue’s to film April and Jason’s wedding day. Their day began at the Dearborn Inn where they got ready for the ceremony surrounded by family and friends. The morning sped by and before we knew it we were on our way to the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Detroit. April took Jason’s breath away in a stunning ball gown as she came down the aisle on her father’s arm. The ceremony was truely lovely as our couple vowed the rest of their days to each other as teary guests watched. After a quick photo shoot at Comerica Park and Woodward Avenue, it was back to the Dearborn Inn where guests enjoyed delicious fare and danced in flip flops to the band. April and Jason we had so much fun filming your wedding day. We wish you both the very best!
August 17, 2013 — The first weekend in August found us once again among friends as we filmed Juliet and Nii Ashitey’s wedding at the beautiful St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Wayne. Four years ago, we were there when Juliet’s brother was married so it was a chance for us to renew old friendships and enjoy the beauty of a summer wedding in Michigan. Family and friends traveled from as far away as Ghana to share in this very special day. The celebration continued at the Dearborn Inn where guests enjoyed superb dining and some amazing cultural dancing and music. It was truly a night to remember!! Juliet and Nii Ashitey thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day and you have our fondest wishes for a lifetime of happiness!
July 25, 2013 — The month of July continues to provide us with wonderful weddings. Last Saturday we traveled to the beautiful Wyndgate Country Club in northern Oakland County to film Adam and Stephanie’s amazing wedding day. A cloudless blue sky set the tone for a perfect day to be married. Guests were chauffeured to the Wyndgate farm house in golf carts where the ceremony took place surrounded by flowers with a beautiful view of the course below. However, the flowers, blue sky and the breathtaking views couldn’t hold a candle to this couple in love. As Adam and Stephanie promised forever to one another, the rest of the world melted away. Their perfect day continued to the reception which was filled with tearjerking toasts from family and friends. To the new Mr. and Mrs., we wish you every happiness this life has to offer! Thank you for letting us be a part of your day , congratulations!
July 19, 2013 — Fourth of July weekend took us to Shelbyville, Michigan for Alex and Emily’s amazing wedding at the Baypointe Inn and Resort. The setting was gorgeous as the couple exchanged their vows before family and friends in a lakeside ceremony. Following photos and cocktails, the evening’s festivities kicked off with the couple, along with their bridal party, taking a cruise using a pontoon boat instead of the traditional party bus. Back at the dock, dinner and dancing filled the night as the couple and their guests enjoyed the evening. Alex and Emily, we had a great time, got a chance to work with some wonderful vendors and renew some old acquaintences. Best wishes for a wonderful happily ever after!
June 15, 2013 — June is one of our favorite months for a wedding, and in filming Jacob and Nour’s wedding, we landed in the middle of a very special day. We started with the couple’s preparations at Gesu Catholic Church across the street from the University of Detroit’s campus where the couple first met. Vows were exchanged before family and friends from all over the world and a unity ceremony featured sand from Lebanon and western Michigan. We had a great time with this adventuresome couple and captured awesome footage during the post-ceremony photo/video shoot in some of Detroit’s more diverse and unique locations. Jacob and Nour’s introduction into the reception at St. Mary’s Cultural Center featured exciting dancing by the Lebanese Zaffe Dance Troupe. It was indeed a very special day! Thank you Jacob and Nour for allowing us the privilege of filming and sharing in your wedding day, and here are our wishes for a lifetime of happiness!
