royal park hotel wedding: danielle & matt

6.17.15 (Weddings)

I knew it was going to be an awesome day before I even arrived, because Danielle and Matt were so wonderful to work with for their engagement session. And then to add to the awesomeness, when I showed up I found out that one of our past brides was a bridesmaid, and one of our upcoming brides was a guest (which is always so fun!). Danielle looked absolutely amazing in her intricate, lace-detailed gown, and I loved how the date was embroidered into it. The purse she had made for that day was made from one of her engagement images I took, which was transferred to fabric and used for the lining. Not only was it beautiful, but it's so flattering to see. Matt looked great too, and he photographed so well that he looks like he would be in a magazine.

Danielle and Matt's ceremony was in the beautiful Conservatory at The Royal Park Hotel. They added an unusual element to their ceremony by incorporating into a box letters they wrote one another (along with a bottle of wine), which they plan to read (and drink!) on their first anniversary, and then will replace with new letters and a new bottle of wine. I've been shooing weddings for 10 years and it was the first time I had seen that... and I love it! I also loved their gorgeous flowers by Bellisario, their beautiful cake by Josef's Bakery, and their super fun and fancy invitations by Paper Source.

This lovely couple met one another while on vacation in Costa Rica. I loved when the best man said in his speech "We went to Costa Rica to meet girls... not THE girl!" Danielle and Matt spent a number of years in a long-distance relationship with one another after that, with Skype playing a major role in their relationship. Whatever they had to do to make it work out, I'm glad they did it... because they're such a great couple! We're losing Danielle to Canada (Matt is Canadian and she has moved there to be with him)... +1 point gained by Canada!

Congratulations to the awesome couple, and thank you for having me as a part of your lovely Royal Park wedding!

royal park hotel wedding: susan & john

6.17.15 (Weddings)

I am so glad to have gotten to be a part of Susan and John's wedding at The Royal Park! It was such a lovely and intimate wedding, and it was clear that Susan and John were so happy to be surrounded by their friends and family. It was a much shorter day for me than usual (a typical wedding day is 8-10 hours, but they had me there for only 2 hours because it was more of a ceremony and dinner party), but even in that short amount of time I easily got the sense that they're great individuals who will make an even greater couple. Congratulations to Susan, John, and their three kids!

lake orion engagement session: laura & david

6.16.15 (Engagements)

When you mix a beautiful couple, a gorgeous location (their yard), and amazing sunlight... this is what you get! Laura and David were naturals in front of the camera, and it was lovely to get to spend some time with them at their home (and to meet their cute kitty!). They both work from home so this is their view from their offices... I think their life is pretty much perfect! Congratulations, Laura and David!

greenfield village engagement session: erin & ben

6.16.15 (Engagements)

Oh, these two! They're SO adorable together! We did their session at the historical Greenfield Village, and the All-American outfits they were were perfection. It was super fun to chat with them as we strolled through Greenfield Village, stopping occasionally as I found the perfect spots (they were even willing to jump on the carousel for photos). Erin has done some ballroom dancing, and you can tell by the way that she gracefully caries herself at all times. And Ben clearly adores her so much. It was a lovely day - congratulations you two!
