October 1, 2014 — As we finished up our summer weddings we had the pleasure of filming Jenna and Sal’s big day with a stunning ceremony at St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Grosse Pointe.

The photo/video shoot took place around the city of Detroit with stops which included that special park bench where Sal proposed to Jenna. The reception at MacRay Harbor in Harrison Township had a really cool nautical theme and the couples guests had a great time dancing the night away. Jenna and Sal you had an absolutely amazing day and we wish you all the best!

The ceremony was a special testament to the couples love in an environment that only St. John’s can provide. Shooting photo’s and video in downtown Plymouth was exciting and fast moving, it also gave us a chance to work with our favorite photographers, Samantha and Brian from “A Thousand Words”. Back at St. John’s, the reception in the Grand Ballroom got off to a rollicking start with music from 50 Amp Fuse still one of the best wedding bands we have had the pleasure of working with.
